She has to register to get on the mailing list, I believe. But, you can choose what to send her. It's a great site and service.
As cheezy as this is.... While my husband was serving in Afghanistan I sent him a pillow case with my picture on it. Take any picture into inkley's and get it put on a transfer paper. Then simply iron it onto a new pillow case. I know it's cheezy, but I know all of the soldiers like pictures from home. You could even have everyone write fun messages on a pillow case and just send the words of encouragement, or her favorite poem or scripture.
Our family currently lives in China, and one of the things we love to have sent that is light-weight, is tea. You could send him some tea and maybe a chocolate (or more!) and a little card. On the card you could have a picture of you, a note, a poem or scripture and a time when you will both sit down and have tea simulatneously. Invite him to a long-distance tea party. =)
The perfect gift for your girlfriend would be a soft fleece tie blanket with military/USA print on it. Go to www.mysoftblanket.com and click on "blanket photographs" to see what I'm talking about. If you can't ship it to her, it would be a great gift to give her when she comes home! :)
all great ideas but also remember just a gift box of essentials are appreciated. like q tips,toothpaste baby powder,sanitary pads,etc but don't send anything with alcohol
i posted awhile back som sites you can go to for things that can be sent overseas as well as some recipes that can be sent overseas
