So we all know if you’re man or woman is deployed over seas it’s smart to send their care package about 4 weeks in advance to get it to them on time. So here’s a fun idea of a package; what you can include, what kind of home made goodies will last in the mail, and cute home made ideas to add a personal touch!!
Make the package Halloween and Movie themed. Put some scary movies in there, if he likes gruesome, the Saw series is always a good one, if he’s one for the classics, Halloween 1-8 can be bought on line on Amazon for just $50! If he’s not one for the gore or really scary, you can go with the classic “Scary Movies” (the funny ones that make fun of real scary movies) or if he’s a real kid at heart It’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is always a good choice too! If you go with the movie Halloween box, be sure to include some popcorn and candy, but make sure there’s enough to go around cause no one likes to watch a movie alone!
Some examples of candy and junk food that would be good for Halloween that make it through the mail and stay fresh are;
- Homemade Cookies
- High-sugar goods like fudge, pralines, toffee, and baklava (the high sugar helps to preserve the food better)
- Beef Jerky
- Chips or crackers
- Sunflower seeds OR Pumpkin Seeds ;)
If you’ve already bought your costume, if you’ve decided to dress up for Halloween this year, put on that costume, make up and all, take a cute picture for your Hunny and include that in the box!!
If you can think of other things to add into the box, feel free to submit them and I’ll be sure to edit the post to include them!!
