If you don't already know, my boyfriend is in the Air Force. When he's deployed, I try to think of really creative ways to show that I'm thinking of him. This is what I came up with! The theme is “I just plane miss you” and YES, that's a paper airplane. It was the first box I sent him during this deployment (our #2nd together!), so I tried to go for things he would really love. You see, my boyfriend loves the movie Cars. So, when I was roaming the aisles of Hobby Lobby & found this awesome lunch box, I HAD to get it.
An idea floating around Pinterest that I’ve done a few times now is simply making “Open When” cards. Get a bunch of great cards together (and pictures!) & write on the outside of the envelopes, things like “open when you miss me”, “open when you need a laugh”, or “open on Christmas Day”. I think this is one of J's favorite things, especially the pictures!
Other things I included in this package were essentials, like:
· Hand wipes
· Homemade Chex mix (recipe linked here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/91057223689708372/ )
· Protein powder & a shaker bottle (he doesn’t get great meals there)
· Protein bars
· Pictures of us
· Pringles, fruit snacks, extra phone charger
