How To: Military Care Package (Thanksgiving Themed)

First off, happy Veterans Day! May we be honoring those who have served in the United States Armed Forces not only today, but everyday. Thank you to my father-in-law (Navy) and my cousin’s dual military marriage (USAF) along with those currently serving (and will one day be veterans), my husband (USAF) and brother-in-law (ARMY.) May your day be blessed!

Now, onto the post...

I am so excited to be sending a second care package! Even though it hasn’t arrived yet, my airman already knows what’s in it, so I wanted to post early to give y’all some new ideas! If you have a loved one deployed, in school, or just far away, I hope this helps inspire you to send love via care packages!

  • Packs of cigarettes
  • Chewing tobacco logs
  • New socks
  • “Open When” Letters
  • Basketball shorts
  • Face wipes
  • Candies

For Christmas, I am getting together giant care packages to send out to the middle east for my husband and our troops! If it is on your heart to bless the men and women who serve (especially during the holidays) please let me know! You can e-mail me at My big packages will be sent on Nov. 20th from Florida!
