What to send a guy serving in Iraq?

#1
Ok, I know I'm opening myself up to alsorts of weird and wonderful (and no-doubt perverted!!) suggestions here --- but I'd be grateful of any suggestions of what someone serving in Iraq would be glad to receive in their parcels
Thanks!

Deoderant, baby wipes, sweats, (no choocy), rasor blades, shower gel, etc. you could put a bucket and spade in just for comedy value.

thanks!! - and they're far more normal suggestions than I was expecting!
Anyway unusual/funny/weird suggestions are fab as well - as I'd love to be able to put something unexpected in with each parcel.
thanks :D

hey I REALLY like that idea!! - he's with NBC lot (or whatever they're called now) so he'll be out and about rather than in camp.

Also found strawberries and ice cream but they're like dehydrated astronaunt food - so don't know if they're any good or just stupid.

Well Mr BitterAndTwisted - I must say you're all surprising me on here ---- I was expecting to get told nothing more than porn mags, naked photos, knickers.... Guess I must have got the wrong impression of you all ;-)

Are you sure that exploding balls are a good idea? Not been there myself, due to age and many other reasons, but I understand that exploding thingamajigs are not too welcome.

Forum etiquette – had you posted in the NAAFI that would have been a different kettle of fish.

LOL - I never thought on that... yeah maybe not exploding golf balls - maybe you can get another joke type then
They actually contain no pyro at all but water they actually disappear on the impact of the clubs striking the ball - the unsuspecting victim thinks that hes hit the ball that hard, that he will never find then. I used them on a mte on the course I was P1ssing myself laughing as he was thinking he so many shoots over par due to missing balls.
