Okay- so I've been sending packages "blindly" up until this point. I have filled them to the brim with all the typical stuff; protein bars, trail mix, hygiene items, magazines and books..etc.
Well he finally contacted home a few days ago and informed me they have nothing where he is, literally..
So I want to make packages that really matter. I've thought of a clothes line and clothes pins (no running water there, running off a generator), boot inserts, small paint brushes because of the sand.... Now it's your turn! Ask your husbands what odd items were super helpful!! Please!

Command hooks...pillows...sheets...comforter...Dr Scholls boot insoles...Odor Eaters powder...

That's really all the non-typical items I've sent him, and it's all been at his request.
