Let’s Talk: What to Include in an Armed Forces Care Package
While caring is the most important part of sending a care package, there are some really helpful tips you may want to keep in mind when you’re putting one together for a friend, family or adopted service member. For example:
- Think quality over quantity. When it comes to items like body wash or lip balm, premium or higher quality brands can be a real treat. You can always find great deals on products like GILLETTE and more at Costco.
- Beef jerky, shaving cream, and socks are almost always a hit.
- Be careful about sending homemade food goodies—the gesture will be appreciated but chances are good they will go stale.
- Hot sauce or flavor packets make for great gifts.
