I Hate Sand! Care Package

If you have a loved one deployed to the Middle East, or who is a missionary or student working in a desert region, then this care package idea is for you!  I sent this to my hubby when he was in The ‘Stan, and he still wears his I Hate Sand tee here at home.

First, I lined the US Mail Flat Rate box with beach-themed scrapbooking paper, putting sandy paper on the bottom.  Oh! You could use actual SANDPAPER! That would be awesome.

Then I gathered the following items, some of which had a sand-theme or texture:

  • I Hate Sand t-shirt from either Zazzle.com or Cafe Press.com (I forget, but they both probably have them)
  • Pecan Sandies cookies
  • crackers
  • chips, cashews, peanuts
  • K-cups.  Yes, my guy had a single-cup coffee machine I sent him.  We have to spoil our soldiers where we can 🙂


That’s it!  You can probably think of some other sandy things.  If so, please share them in the Comments, and help each other out, y’all!  Plus, I love reading what you have to say.
