Don’t know what to put in summer care packages?
I’ve sent dozens of care packages over the years. Often those care packages were sent to my husband stationed overseas in hot climates.
I always try to fill them not only with things that he likes but also things that he can use or things that he might not be able to get. As always, I have to consider what facilities he has access to. Sometimes, he has access to a pool, and that opens up a lot more stuff that I can send.
Here are 19 ideas of things to put in summer care packages to help beat the heat!
