    Take some boxes of cereal, empty out most of it, put a few of the smaller plastic bottles of booze, and then refill and reseal the box.

    He'll thank you.

    Hustler?

    Id find out what he likes/wants/needs and send whatever that may be.

    Ask him or maybe his folks maybe?

    Buy him a bottle of listerene. Then, empty out it's contents and replace it with his favorite whiskey. Rolls of Skoal or Copenhagen ( evn if he doesn't chew, he can use it to barter. Same with smokes). Maybe send him some DVD's and beef jerky. But the biggest thing I've found my deployed friends appriciate the most...pictures. These can be of old times together, current photos of the town you all grew up in and snap shots of chicks he'd like to bang ( if he knows them or not doesn't matter :) ).

    What sort of things does he like?

    My friend was married to a sailor. She'd send him cookies, pictures of the family, letters, books/magazines, videos of whatever etc etc.

    This was 20-something years ago though.

    How about some nice cigars? A nice DE razor, shaving brush, and a some nice shave soap? Candy? Books/DVDs? Golf balls and a club so he can hit them off the back of the ship? Fog horn? Paints/brushes/glue and some models? Condoms? Dramamine? Pictures of his family?

    Like everyone said, find something that he likes and go with it.

    Does he like to read? Find out what types of books he likes and pick some out.

    Does he have a laptop? Computer games or other programs.

    Does he have a digital camera? If not, get him a few disposable cameras.

    etc...

    When my dad was at sea his favorite was chocolate chip cookies. we made them to fit in a pringles can. If you get a care package of chocolate chip cookies everyone wants one. No one wants one of your pringles.

    Get everyone you know that is willing tohand write him a letter wherther they know him or not. Ask them to tell him a little about terhm snd their fsmily. Have them be encourageing, etc, and send a pic of themselves also. Handwritten stuff is a great morale booster, as are homemade snacks. Trust me, been there got those!
