Throughout the coming year there will be many events that will require
the purchase of a gift for a loved one whether they are at home or deployed.
Birthdays are probably the most common as they occur every year but also
occasions like promotions, retirements, anniversaries, deployments and weddings.
In the modern world most people prefer to shop online for their gifts rather than
go to overcrowded and expensive stores, as shopping online offers you the distinct
advantage of viewing a vast selection of gifts in one place.
Enter army gifts as a search phrase in to your browser and I think you will be
presented with a selection of gifts that you certainly will not get in any
one place in your city.
Below we shall give you some ideas on the selection of gifts that are easy to order and
indeed very easy to ship, as this is extremely important if you intend to ship overseas
in terms of shipping costs.
Army Rings the Perfect Gift
Having been in Iraq and Kuwait among-st many other places working with our troops,
I have a pretty good idea what many of our soldiers and
other members of the armed forces like.
One of the most sought after army gifts for deployed soldiers is the army ring, not just any army ring;
the most popular one is the deployment ring which allows the purchaser to be able to customize it with
details of their deployment and also some personal details.
The dates of deployments can be placed on your army ring just above the selected image and can be
engraved like this OIF 08-09 this will indicate that the soldier took part in the “Operation Iraqi Freedom”
during the period from 2008 to 2009. This is only an example and the same can be customized for any
campaign from the vast range of carefully selected images that are available to you in our shop.
Army Pendant a thoughtful Gift.
This is a very popular choice for all genders for a few very simple reasons. It is easy to customize for a
particular campaign or to reflect the department that you or someone else serves in or retired from.
The choice of metal for your army gifts will determine the cost and of course the level of customization.
Silver is very is extremely popular as its suits most skin types and it’s not as expensive as the other metals.
For formal occasions and especially when wearing the dress uniform it’s nice to wear gold which is available
in white and yellow gold.
A word of caution, when purchasing gold the white version tends to be a little bit more expensive than
yellow and the higher the carat the softer the gold. Jewelers will say that it’s better to engrave on 10 carat
gold rather than 14 carat as it won’t wear away especially if it’s a piece of jewelry that
you’re going to wear every day.
Books make a great Gift.
You really have got to know someone very well to start selecting reading material for them, but they are so
treasured by soldiers on deployment as they have a tendency to transport an individual to another place
for moments in time.
I observed when I was overseas that one book that is carried by a high percentage of soldiers and is suitable
for a gift at any time is the Bible.
