Shoebox Parcels - Contents

#1
A family member is serving in Afghanistan, I'm intending to send out a goody box, however apart from the obligatory porn mags, I don't have a clue of what would be really appreciated out there.

Any suggestions for contents.....?

I sent a mate a load of thin M+S socks, dehydrated sports drink stuff, a USB pen full of movies/porn/series etc. A Pack of ginger biscuits, a cornetto in a tupperware tub (to piss him off!) and loads of little bits and bobs he'd asked for.

To be honest, I think he just wanted to get some post!

Cheers BB and DS, Like the USB Pen, things have moved on :)

I don't really know the lad, but he's family, so he's having a box, whether he likes it or not. It will have to be generic contents. Music wise, I'm thinking of copying "Bat out of Hell", what squaddie of any age could fail to enjoy that!!!!!!

So far then.

In a Tupperware Box

USB Pen - Movies etc
Copy of Viz
Bat out of Hell
Packet of Biscuits(custard creams), I think Ginger Nuts are an acquired taste.

Some tidy socks...from millets perhaps


Keep em coming

Send an washed out empty whisky miniature bottle & tie a tag to the bottle neck saying something like "Contents removed by BF Post Office...(Thanks!)"

Panda Pops it is then:

USB Pen - Movies etc
Copy of Viz
Bat out of Hell
Packet of Biscuits Ginger Nuts/Custard Cremes
Some tidy socks...from millets perhaps
one cup filter coffee pack
1 x Panda Pop :wink:

Its coming along nicely.

He's an airbourne gunner, so I'm thinking of snapping off a turd into a small tupperware box and labeling it "Chocolate Mousse" I think he would enjoy that!!

When I was on Telic, I got a parcel from the missus. Opened it up, and the silly bugger had put fireworks in it for Guy Fawkes night.
I'm not talking sparklers and fizzers, I'm talking **** off big fireworks.
God knows, to this day, what she was thinking when she did it, but god love her, she's a sweetheart.

At the end of the day, send what you want, just don't put a contact address on it for yourself, and nowt can happen to you or him.

Send fireworks!!!!

I can't believe you aren't thinking of sending Haribo. Tsk Tsk.
