    The (admittedly small) unit that I currently have the pleasure of serving with have a number of people currently deployed to the sandpit over Christmas. To that end we have decided to scrape together a few bits and pieces to send each of them a 'Christmas box'.

    So, the simple question is this - what sort of stuff should we send them? Serious suggestions only please.
     
  2. Tin of spray-snow? That way they'll probably have more snow than we will...
     
  3. Christmas cake and pudding?
     
  4. lisa rogers (scrap heap challenge), Katie Holmes and a paddling pool full of jelly
     
  5. Yule log, custard (powder), gravy granules, christmas crackers, brandy/whisky minatures (cost purposes) and a piece of misteltoe for the more amorous :wink:

    Perhaps 'moist wipes' for when it all comes out the other end!
     
  6. Christmas crackers and decorations, selection boxes, and christmas cake.

  7. "Special" Listerine, Smirnoff recipe

    A girlfriend.

    And yes, I am that sad!
     
  9. Just a box full of those choccy biscuits called Rocky. After a pack of those everything else in life is average.

    Oh.....and the entire Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders!!!!!! ......... covered in Rocky biscuits. errr gotta go now....................!
     
  10. a man-sized box, with integral oxygen supply and food and water for 48 hours, with pre-paid postage and packing fees back to the UK. :D
