Here are some out of the box military care package ideas:
A Piñata- Check out this post I wrote about sending my hubby a Piñata, right to his desk on the ship!
Cake in a jar– This is such a cute idea and a great way to help your loved one celebrate a birthday or other special event.
Personalized board book- Super cute! If the service member had good computer access, this would be a great idea for them to create and send back home. That way the kiddos could have pics from dad/mom. Or of course the family could send one out to the soldier too. I have used shutterfly but this is a neat option.
Daddy’s Mailbox- I love this. I like how the kids can put notes and letters inside the box on their own time, when they feel like it. =)
Baby’s hand or foot print– I wish I’d thought of this when our little P was so young. In know hubby would have really enjoyed it. Next deployment I’ll have to try it out. There’s no tutorial but here’s the Pin (Follow me on Pinterest!)
