Gift cards to stores in the area (Best Buy, Aerie, Target, Wal-Mart, American Eagle, etc. any of the number of stores in the mall).
Ruby Tuesday, Olive Garden, Chili's, Coldstone Creamery, Subway
Passport travel holder (LLBean has some very nice ones), fleece blanket, external hard drive.
For females, pearl earrings, gift card to the nail salon in the mall (great to use before formals), Slippers (check what the regs are now), black gloves, black purse, perfume, face care items, makeup, black sunglasses
Morale, Welfare and Recreation. Located across the hall from Dry Dock in Leamy.
Their number is available on the www.uscga.edu web site. You can phone and give them a credit card number for many of the purchases. They've mailed us tickets, etc. from time to time.
Great place for the cadets to look for hotels, theme park tickets, etc. for Spring Break Those who work in MWR are very helpful.
