For those of us who have military personnel in our lives (whether that’s the air force, coast guard, or any other brand of the military), we know how hard it can be to juggle the sense of pride we have in them with the feeling of missing them throughout the year.
But because we want them to know they are loved, and are still valued members of our family, we’ve devised this list of gifts that are perfect for your favorite serviceman or women.
We’ve chosen gifts that are suitable both for retired veterans and active military personnel.
