Gift-giving is always a welcome surprise, whether your soldier is on a military deployment, ready to graduate boot camp, or stationed overseas.
You can give your Army soldier a gift for Christmas, birthday, or just to say “I love you.”
Through the years, I’ve so enjoyed choosing gifts for my soldier son. Here’s some of our favorite useful gifts.
Why settle for an everyday pen when a tactical pen offers so much more! These rugged super strength pens double as a glass breaker, LED tactical flashlight, and bottle opener. It looks like an ordinary pen, but it’s so much more!
I love Multitools and they make a great gift for your soldier! It comes in handy for any number of things. This one is approved for tactical military use. It has a black oxide coating so there’s very little reflection.
It’s 18 tools in one: Pliers/gripper, knife, wood saw, screwdrivers (4), ratchet and hex bit driver, scissors, file, awl, can/bottle openers, wire cutter, crimpers and ruler. These are also great to keep around the home for yourself.
Portable Solar Charger
Everyone needs a charger these days for our arsenal of electronic devices. If your soldier is deployed, they may be out in the field and a portable solar charger is the perfect gift! If there are rays from the sun, they can charge their phone! Makes a great gift for you too!
Pair Of Socks
A simple pair of socks can make a huge difference for your soldier. My son was so appreciative when I sent him a few pairs during an Afghanistan deployment.
A good pair of socks was essential in the cold weather. And for that morning exercise, keeping their feet dry and blister free is a real plus.
Tactical flashlights are a wonderful gift that your soldier can use. Tactical flashlights have a single high output level maximum light. It’s made of tough material that resists impact too. Great for rugged use too! I confess that I’ve owned a SureFire for years. It’s the best flashlight I ever owned!
Global Positioning Systems (GPS) Watch
Your soldier will love a GPS watch! Soldiers are always on the go and this watch goes with them, with loads of features. Made with U.S. Military standard 810G for thermal, shock, and water resistance, it can go anywhere! Built in 3 axis compass and barometric altimeter, plus multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, Glonass and Galileo). Plus it monitors heart rate, activity and stress, and much more.
Check out these rugged GPS watches!
Grass Fed Beef Jerky
Beef jerky is great for any soldier on the go! This healthy snack fits in a pocket ready to eat at anytime, even on a mission. The grassfed beef jerky is high protein and low carb!
