My daughter has a school project where she has to send a care package to a soldier that is delpoyed. He is asking for snacks, good coffee and pots and pans. What are some snacks your person misses or that would be good to ship? Also what are some other things that he would need? 

Thank you for the ideas.

Chips, beef jerky, gum, breakfast bars, cheese crackers, fruit cups, power bars, ramen noodles, slim jims, tuna kits for food.


All kinds of toiletries are needed. Batteries are always needed, books, bug repellant, disposable cameras, pens and paper, socks, sunscreen, big zip lock bags.

Water balloons and water guns from the 99cebt store are great!It helps them to cool
off and joke around and get their minds off stuff.Snacks,send home made cookies or brownies in tupper ware, or in plastic baggies.Jolly ranchers or any hard candy like that,sun fliwer seeeds and beef jerky are great too :)

homemade is always apperciated... chocolate tends to melt in transit.my husband always apreciated the little sinle servings of Koolaid  or gatorade.jerky is a favorite. think young ( almost adelesent) guys and girls mostly and even the older ones revert a bit... so something fun

the biggest request ive had from family deployed was things like bug repellant, chapstick or carmex, sunscreen, batteries, and little travel type games or anything to help pass the time that is on the small side..

As far as snacks go it can be anything so long as it doesnt melt in high heat...also alot like the crystal light, milo, ect ect any of those things that you can add to water for flavor

So everyone pretty much is saying batteries. What size are most needed?
