I am a proud mom of twin boys that are in the United States Navy. They have been away from home for over 7 years going to school, traveling the world, and experiencing life. Sadly, they have always been deployed far away from home. For the past 3 years, they were both deployed in different parts of Japan. Even though they enjoyed almost every minute of their time in Japan, there was a lot of what Japan could not offer and provide them. That is why, as their mom, I made sure to visit Sam’s Club and purchase Member’s Mark®Ultimate Clean Detergent so that I could create the perfect care package for my loved ones.

If you have a loved one that lives away from home, here are some ideas and tips on creating the perfect care package.

I love sending my boys a care package at least 2-3 times a year. I always try and listen to their needs and wants when we chat and then sometimes I just ask them what they need or are missing. Depending on where your loved one lives along with their likes, needs, and wants will depend on the type of care package you send them. One thing that most care packages have in common is that when the loved one away from home receives it, they want to be reminded of home. Here are some ideas so you can also create the perfect care package for your loved one.

  • Favorite Snacks: I try and include snacks that they cannot get where they live along with snacks that they loved to eat while growing up at home.
  • Pictures: Even though social media allows you to keep up with your loved ones and see pictures of them, I like to send physical copies of pictures so they can be placed around their house and be reminded that their family loves them.
  • Notes and Drawings: My sons have younger siblings so I like to add little cards that they made, along with surprise letters from my letting them know how proud I am of them.
  • Random Gifts: Whenever I go shopping, if I see anything that I know my boys will love or something that will make them smile, I grab it and add it to their care package.
  • Clothes: Knowing that my boys never have enough socks, I always make it a point to send my boys a new pack of socks with each of their care packages that I send. I also include a new t-shirt that lets them represent where their home actually is.

Members Mark Found at Sams Club

Before I add the extra shirts and socks to the care package, I like to wash them with Members Mark Ultimate Clean Detergent. This is why I always make sure to shop at Sam’s Club or if I am busy I shop at to purchase this detergent.

  1. My kiddo is 8, so I have a few years before he’s out in the world without me. I bet your boys appreciate that you launder the shirts in Member’s Mark before sending them in the mail. The smell of home must bring a smile to their faces! [client]
