    Stuff I've sent previously;

    Kool-aid
    Sweets
    Christmas decorations - paper chains, merry christmas thingys, hanging things, just cheap silly ones.
    Coffee
    Socks
    Silly books
    Photos from home
    UMD movies (he already had the PSP)
    Cuddly toy (with my perfume on it)
    One of those little books - like the little book of calm

    Can't remember what else but I know there was more, trying to sort a load of cards at the mo so I can send them today
