My daughter has a school project where she has to pur together a care package for a soldier. He is asking for snacks, good coffee and pots and pans. What are some snacks your person missed and that are good to ship. Also what else could you think of that this person could use? 


Thank You in advance for all the help ladies.

It probably wouldn't fly since it's a kid's school project, but my (usmc) brother's sole request was a sleeve of chaw. I guess they weren't allowed to smoke because it could give away their position.

I think small stuffed animals are popular though, to stuff in their pockets and give to the local children when they see them.

Shaving stuff, cookies, beef jerky, single-serve powdered juice packets (like Crystal Lite), deoderant, dried fruit, granola bars, handheld fans, batteries.

My dad's favorite gift when he was deployed was a voice recorder with a message from my whole class on it.

Nothing that contains pork.

I sent my dh romen, rice bowls, and funny bunnies that I had to order online just to find them. Some guys like beef jerky and other snack foods. Also I had s friend ask for a football to throw around.

I can't imagine a snack that is healthy that can be sent overseas.

Aren't there import laws against food?

Jerky and trail mix are great. So are homemade baked goods. Chocolate Will almost always end up a melted gross mess. The very best thing I ever got in a care package was a trail mix with dried peaches and pineapple and cashews. I so wish I could remember what the brand was. Hygiene supplies were always great too, but put anything that has liquid (shampoos or shaving creams) in an individual plastic bag because the military post can get really beat up.
