Christmas Present Ideas For Soldier Boyfriend

I was wondering if anyone knew of some gift ideas for a soldier. My boyfriend is in the army, and I was wanting some ideas on what to send him for Christmas. Thanks for all the feedback. It's greatly appreciated!

Well, wherever he is, he would love lots of pictures from home. Get a big Christmas card and have everyone sign it. Make a tape (audio or video) of everybody sending Christmas messages. If he's out of the country, food and magazines are good. Best Christmas wishes to both of you.

You may want to check out the selection at http://www.minimus.biz. They have a great selection of travel-sized merchandise, and sell individual servings of all kinds of food items. For example, in their condiment section, you can find horseradish sauce, mustard, seafood cocktail sauce, orange marmalade, and jellied cranberry sauce. They also have personal items, and some great beverage choices. They even ship to military addresses too, although I don't know if that's extra or not. (10/26/2007)

My son just got back from Iraq. He said he really liked the soft blanket I sent, and the care package I made up for him: micro wave popcorn, beef jerky, instant mac and cheese, a small microwave dish to cook it in, a small fake tree with home made decorations on it, and twinkle lights.

Make a Christmas stocking and fill it with little things, homemade cookies, and tasty cakes (they last a long while). Also instant soups. If he's in Iraq, the weather there in winter is cold as here. Just because the day temps can reach 130, it still gets cold at night. Maybe he would like a special throw, socks, Ziploc bags, and phone cards. Remember if you send aftershave, don't forget to put it in a Ziploc bag, just in case it leaks. DVDs are good, there is no real TV from my understanding. Even hand held games that he might like. Let your mind run wild with ideas. There is no wrong ideas. Good luck! And God Bless him! (10/26/2007)

Get a variety pack of occasion cards and even put in a sheet of postage stamps. It will make it easier for him to drop a quick line to his family and friends. Include some addresses of others you know he would want to write in case he does not have their addresses. You can buy the variety packs of cards at the dollar store for about $2-3 dollars for a set of 12 to 24 all occasion.

Also send small individual sizes of snack packs like chips, crackers, etc. The ones like they sell for kids in school in the 24 variety count box sold in your store's chip isle.

Make him a bookmark with your picture on it with a special poem you have written or even copied, by using hard stock paper, hole punch, ribbon loop through it, etc. If he reads he can always have you near by to be reminded of your love and patience. Christian book stores sell lovely inspirational bookmarks. You could include a small pocket size bible for him. (10/28/2007)

Anything from you will be special no matter what. My husband went last year overseas. I sent him, plus his men, one small Christmas tree and several little wrapped gifts for him and each man so they could have Christmas together so they wouldn't be alone. I packed a canned ham, yams, canned egg nog, whatever they could put in microwave. And the wrapped gifts were puzzles, razors, pens, paper, word maze books, just small things so they had something to open. He and the men all sent thanks home and said it really made it easier for them to make it through the season. Send lots of disposable cameras, postage, and phone cards (Sam's Club) cheaper and lots and lots of prayers. Get the schools and churches in your area to send cards; it helps them more than you can know. God bless. (11/09/2007)

My fiance is in the army, too. Is he over seas, training or what? I got him a St. Christopher's medal with our initials engraved on the back with a heart. That way he knows I'm always thinking of him. (11/23/2007)

I finally got him something. I got him a dog tag necklace with the Lord's prayer engraved in it. (11/23/2007)
