Having a friend or family member deployed during the holiday’s can be difficult. The easiest way to stay connected during deployment is to send care packages. After thirteen years as an Army wife I can tell you that these packages mean the world to your soldier.
At times it can be tough to think of items to include in care packages, make your Christmas care package spectacular with these ideas. This list contains items for deployed men AND women. So many lists out there are only geared toward military men, that’s why I’ve included gifts that work for men and women.
My kids love to get involved in creating our care packages! Not only is it fun for them but it’s a way to stay connected with their dad.

When we create our Christmas care package we like to decorate the inside of the box using either Christmas wrapping paper or pictures that my kids have drawn. Each item in the box is then wrapped in wrapping paper to make it extra special.
