My son was excited to get anything. He said personal hygiene stuff went really fast so I always sent toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, lotion. This time of year they need sunscreen and the lip balm sunscreen. He loved getting snacks, sunflower seeds, cans of mixed nuts, altoids, tic tacs, and homemade cookies. I also send him shower shoes(flip flops) one time and socks (not for the shower). Magazines and newspaper clippings about the hometown sports teams.
