Not that I’m fishing for care packages or anything (ok, maybe I am, don’t hate me–I miss American things!) but I thought it would be useful to some of you if I posted a list of things that you could send me in a care package. A quick note before I begin the list: if you send me anything at all, even a letter or a postcard (I collect them from around the world so this is actually a perfect gift!), I will be eternally grateful for your heartfelt generosity and for your kind thoughts. And when in doubt, just send me something that reminds me of YOU.

  • Twizzlers
  • Chex Mix (original or Bold Party blend) or Ghardettos
  • Fritos
  • American chocolate candy–my favorite is Reese’s (careful though, they do melt!)
  • gummy worms
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Ranch seasoning packets
  • taco seasoning packets
  • American coffee (I have an electric drip coffee maker–I know, life in the PC is rough)
  • popcorn seasoning (Orville Redenbacher’s in nacho cheese or ranch flavor is deeeee-licious!)
  • Girl Scout Cookies (Tagalongs and Thin Mint are my faves)
  • arts and crafts supplies (markers, crayons, colored construction paper, crepe paper, Elmer’s glue)
  • White board markers and erasers
  • trashy American magazines (ok, you can send me smart ones too–I like the Atlantic the best)
  • crossword puzzles cut out from the newspaper (I’m addicted!!!)
  • photos or letters from you!
