How To: Military Care Package (Birthday Themed)

You guys! Where has the time gone?! Another deployment… already?! A lot has changed since my last blog post: new home, new deployment, new human being growing inside of me. Casual things in the military wife life.

I am so excited and blessed to finally pour my heart into Anchors and Planes as a new mummy-to-be, but first things first, it’s my lovely airman’s birthday! As all deployments go, there are missed holidays and seasons, but that shouldn’t keep us from a celebratory project.

This post will hands down be the least expensive, creative, and most boring care package made yet… the first trimester did not treat me well. However, this is perfect if you’re on a budget or have fun sending things “just because you love them.”

 Same as a few of my other boxes, I used scrapbook paper to cover the wings of the box completely ($2), sticker letterss to say, “Happy Birthday” ($5), and red, white and blue ribbon for… no reason, ribbon is awesome ($3).🙂
Inside are large things my husband asked for, with a smaller items being surprise gifts.
  • Sweatpants
  • Underwear
  • Socks
  • GQ magazine
  • Star Wars puzzle
  • Multiple sauces and seasoning
  • Snacks and candy
  • Energy drinks: 5 HR energy shots


Total weight: 0 lbs. (Flat rate box – $18)

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13


I hope this inspires you to spoil those you love, and spoil them well. We never know when our last day will be, so don’t hold love back from anyone ❤ Happy birthday to my amazing husband, and may our troops, you, and your loved ones be blessed in the name of Jesus!

Xoxo – Angel
