We send a box of goodies to my wife's family in the Philippines like 3 times a year. The last one that we sent was supposed to be for Christmas but it didn't get there in time. They got it last week. Well, despite being late for a couple of weeks the family were still excited about the goodies.
We sent some backpacks on that said box. Those were for the kids that they can use for school. The kids were delighted about it.
We are now slowly buying things for the box which we will send by March. My wife mentioned to me that we need to send a backpack jansport for her brothers because they can use it for short trips or overnight trips. Well, not a problem to me. I am sure my wife can find a good deal whatever she is looking for.
