As an Army wife, I send my soldier over-the-top care packages to celebrate the holidays when he’s deployed. So, I couldn’t resist making a fun Thanksgiving care package.

These decked-out boxes of love are my way of showing him that he has not been forgotten – even during the busy holiday season.

It’s almost November, so that means there are only a few weeks left to get your Thanksgiving care package in the mail in time for Turkey Day!

Here are some ideas to inspire you to make your best care package yet!
