People ask me all the time what do women REALLY WANT when they are deployed. Honestly, the things they really WANT are also the things they REALLY NEED. I say this because sometimes finding the simple things (such as tampons) that we take for granted here in the States can become critical need items while you are deployed overseas. Below is a list of things that women need and would love to receive in care packages:
-shampoo and conditioner (travel sizes from hotels are great!)
-hair rubber bands and bobby pins (must match the natural color of hair)
-lotion (both body and face lotion)
-women's socks (both athletic ankle socks and boot socks)
-women’s sports bras and underwear (they have all the guys underwear in the world, but forget trying to find women’s'!)
-tampons and pads
-books + magazines +chic flicks on DVD
-greetings cards (many women miss their parent's/kid's/husband's birthday or holiday while they are deployed but can't find cards to send home to them on these occasions)
-black sock hats
-healthy snacks (Luna bars, dried fruit, tea)
-small stud earrings (even the cheap Wal-Mart pearl/metal ball stud earrings are appreciated)
-women's black sunglasses
-lip gloss/ Chap Stick
-good hand creams
Thank you, and don't forget to check the blog before the sale for important updates (especially if the weather looks iffy)!
