Graduation Gifts for the Armed Services

Graduation gifts for those that just completed basic training.

Your graduate just completed basic training in one of the armed services. While this isn't considered the same as graduation from a university, it is still a great accomplishment. Your graduate will defend our country in one of the most selfless occupations in the world. Consider some of these graduation gift ideas for your soldier.

The enlisted, no matter which branch, love care packages filled with snacks and treats from home especially home-made cookies or regionally specific snacks that the PX doesn't carry. Before making your shopping list, research which items are allowed and how they should be packaged - these restrictions change depending on where the soldiers are stationed or deployed. There are also United States Post Office parameters to follow. However, the post office offers free mailing boxes with free postage for sending packages to our enlisted personnel.

A mini-DVD player with monitor would be a fantastic gift, especially if your soldier is being deployed overseas. They can watch their favorite movies, which should be included, by themselves or with a group of buddies. This can provide a great way to escape the everyday routine of the military.

International calling cards are a great idea as well for soldiers that may be deployed overseas. You can purchase generic cards that give a flat rate per minute or you can buy cards that give different rates according to where you are calling from. Even if they are stationed stateside, phone calling cards are highly useful. Your soldier can keep in touch with family and friends much easier when they have the ability to call anytime without having to worry about cost or scheduling it with their division.
