I'm planning on putting a shoebox together with Christmas gifts in, for my friend who is serving in Afghanistan for 4 months from the 3rd November. The idea being I can actually wrap the shoe box (box and lid separately) as I can't wrap individual presents. So it'll still look festive.

Anyway, I was wondering if anybody could help with ideas for little gifts that I could pop in it? I'm thinking a chocolate orange & selection box, warm Christmas socks, one of those little model airplanes you can get (he's RAF, and a big kid), some nice tea bags and biscuits... and I'm stuck. Any more ideas please? I want it to be really special and maybe put one or two things in 'from the girls', too. Thanks
