Creative Military Care Packages That They’ll Love

If you know someone who is deployed or living overseas with the military, you can cheer them up by sending them a care package! These creative ways of packing care packages will make their day just a bit brighter and will give you a theme for your package.

Dos and Don’ts

DON’T send anything that can melt if it’s headed to a hot location! Instead, look for hard candies or non-chocolate items.

DON’T combine hygiene with food items! Soap, shampoo, and hygiene items are likely to spill and contaminate any food items. Instead, package them separately.

DO ask them what they want! They may have access to many American items on base but they may be missing more regional items that are hard to get.
