Boo-tacular Halloween Military Care Package Ideas

Summer has came and went…well not officially but you get the idea. September is here and if you want your festive Halloween care packages to arrive overseas in time, then you may want to get going on them soon.

During my husband’s deployments I took great joy in sending him two different types of care packages. The first one consisted of Halloween Candy and Little Debbie’s Halloween Cakes ( he loved those) plus all of his normal snack and hygiene products. The second box was filled with Halloween decorations for him to decorate his room door with and also to give to some  of the other guys. The guys may not want to admit it but they really like that kind of stuff considering the circumstances.

During the month of September ArmyWife101.com will be accepting submissions from readers who want to showcase their Halloween Care Packages.

This week’s care package comes from Katie J.

Katie shared: I bought all the stuff from Hobby lobby. I just MOD PODGED tissue paper on the box and added little decorations. I filled it with Halloween cakes,pop rocks, noodle cups , dip , chips, mac and cheese, photos of our boys in their costumes, a Halloween card, some fund spooky toys from walmart and toppd it with spider web with spiders :) Nothing to fancy but he loved it :))
