We want to send a care package to our SIL who is currently deployed to in the middle east as a pilot. (until January) I figured a lot of the normal suggestions are out of date and I haven't heard of many suggestions lately. The lists contained a lot of food items like snacks- granola bars, or lemonade mix ,beef jerky, homemade treats etc. We want to send something useful and worthwhile. I figured they just read on e readers otherwise I might send some paperbacks but I wasn't sure about that. thanks so much!
