Even if your military girlfriend or boyfriend who has been deployed isn’t a creative type, they may still find comfort in writing down their experiences or sketching out things that inspire them. Who knows, they may even reveal their inner author or artist. This leather-bound journal is a thoughtful military gift and comes with blank pages, so they are free to fill the pages however they wish. Be sure to scatter in a few love letters and photos throughout the pages for them to find on their own as a special surprise.

Homemade Care Package
Nothing will remind them of home quite like, well, items from home. Fill a box of all of their favorite things. And remember, even the smallest items can bring the biggest joy. Like his or her favorite body wash, homemade cookies, trail mix, and other baked goods, or the coffee they love so much. And throw in something that smells like you—your pillowcase or something scented with your perfume or aftershave. Familiar smells will conjure up the strongest memories of you. The sweetest gift of all.
