Check out these wonderful care package ideas from Megan, a fellow military wife. She emailed me a treasure trove of packages from her husband’s last deployment (which was their first deployment as well). Megan says that making care packages kept her sane during deployment– that’s something a lot of us have experienced! Megan and her family– which has expanded to include their two little boys– are now dealing with their second deployment. Please keep them in your thoughts!
I love featuring care packages from readers (you don’t have to be connected to the military), because everyone has such a unique, interesting twist on how they decorate and fill their boxes. If you’d like to be featured, send me an email (the button’s on the right hand side of the blog)!
Now sit back, relax, and get inspired!

I love them all, but my fiancee is due home home very soon.
Hi! I totally adore your care packages! If you don’t mind me asking, how much do you spend on shipping your packages on avg? And Where do you get your boxes from? I’ve been recycling old boxes that I’ve had shipped to me.
I always send Priority for APO/FPOs because there is a slight discount (maybe $2-$3 and you the weight of the package DOESN’T MATTER). That’s huge since heavy boxes are really expensive when you ship them overseas. You can get free Priority boxes from the post office!
