  • I send my husband he;s favorite snacks. Maybe a good book or two. They really can't have very many things over there which sucks. Maybe some American soil? Send him material to build a small box then send grass seeds and soil so he can have his own American soil with him.

  • Proud mama! :) How about some coffee? That's always good to wake up with..

  • Send him all sorts of his favorite things! Like different kinds of candies and drink mixes and coffee. Plus books and anything else fun that he likes to do. Movies are always a plus as well! Sorry to hear that he's gotta be there on his 21st b-day! But he can have a heck of a celebration when he gets home!!
