Christmas is a time for family and friends coming together to celebrate. Unfortunately, this isn't always possible if one or more members of the family are deployed over the festive period.
While you can still have your celebrations, open presents and eat your weight in turkey, there is something missing. It is much harder for them too, as they can be thousands of miles away from home without the comforts of Christmas traditions.
Although you can save some of the celebrations for when they get home, even if that is several months away, it is a good idea to send them some festive cheer. This way, they'll get a parcel to open on Christmas Day and will know that you're thinking of them.
However, you can't send anything and everything over to them, so you need to be careful what you include in your Christmas parcel. Here are some great ideas that will help to spread the festive cheer to service personnel wherever they are in the world.
