I had a co-worker who always mailed her hubby the candys that went on clearance. One customer just bought her son overseas about 4 dozen jar candles for some odd reason.

Great list! I bet he really appreciated the package every week. What a great mom!
My son joins the Air Force in October. Not sure if he'll be deployed or not, but I will try to do as well at keeping him stocked on love as you did your son.
