In our family Christmas present draw, I got one of my cousins who is now stationed in Iraq. I'm looking for ideas of what to get someone in that position... he's 19 or so, and I think last time I got him, he got phone cards or something like that. He didn't see much value (and he'd just enlisted, too).

So... any suggestions? Dizzy, if you happen to catch this, I know you're over there. Felix, I know you've got the background. Anyone else I've forgotten, I apologize...

Djenkuje! Gracias! Danke! Merci! Thanks!

I know my brother in law was most interested in things like new music, stuff he could play on a laptop he brought over, games, food and magazines.

Headphones??? That way the enemy won't be able to find him by his music, unless he plays it insanely loud.

If he has a player, I'd also think maybe those book CDs may be something one could listen to instead of music and be entertained, especially if they didn't have a laptop.

All of the above are good but isn't it a bit late? Even with super fast express mail it's gonna be tight getting there.
