    I always give the Visa gift cards, especially for boys, they are so hard to shop for. :rolleyes:

    visa card is a great idea, he'll have to buy some basic stuff to go to bootcamp, at least my hubby did and he was strapped for cash before he went in-like white undershirts, white briefs, razors, etc. If he's responsible he'll spend it on that lol.

    Maybe you could do something from the heart...a memory book with send off messages that you collect from family members and quote in the book, along with some pictures. I know it sounds a little girly, but he may appreciate it once he is away for a while. You could do it in a military or camouflage style to make it more manly...

    You could throw in a calling card if he needs that too.
