Shopping for holiday gifts for your deployed spouses can get tricky. One year I sent my husband a hooded sweatshirt with one of our favorite college basketball team's logo on the front. Since I couldn't buy a sweater, jeans, jacket, or basically any other clothing items I was running out of ideas. My husband actually has more clothes that me if you can imagine. I thought I was doing a great thing; only to find out the only place he could wear it was in his little hut. It became just one more thing to ship home.
I'm not sure where the time has gone, but the deadline to ship overseas is already here. The deadline to ship to zip code 093 (Afghanistan) is December 3rd.
Whether you have already shipped your care package and wanting to send something extra or if you need to put together your box filled with love, here are some ideas to get you started:
