Every woman loves seeing a man in a uniform.
It’s a cliche, but it’s true.
There’s something about military uniforms that makes almost
everyone who wears one, men and women alike, look better:
more physically fit, more dashing, more attractive.
For that reason alone, military personnel love to receive uniform gifts.
But they love receiving uniforms gifts for more practical reasons, too.
Battle Dress Uniforms
Most military uniforms don’t focus on fashion or style, concentrating instead of comfort, safety and utility.
The “Battle Dress Uniforms” or BDUs that soldiers wear almost all the time have become famous due
to widespread television coverage of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
You know what these uniforms look like: they’re the camouflage uniforms in subdued colors with
pockets everywhere that you see almost every day.
They’re not about style, but the men and women wearing them look great anyway.
They’re comfortable and they’re worn almost all the time.
Uniform gifts of BDUs are always welcomed by soldiers, no matter where they’re stationed.
“Full Dress” uniforms are a much different story: the full dress uniform of every branch of service is rich with style and panache.
Full dress uniforms are much more colorful than everyday uniforms and they’re only worn on special occasions,
usually parades and other ceremonial events.
They include the striking “Dress Blue” uniform of the U.S. Marine Corps and the “Dress White” uniform of the U.S.
Navy, but the U.S. Army and Air Force have outstanding full dress uniforms, too.
The uniforms that armed forces personnel must wear are issued to them by the government,
but many military men and women want more.
Soldiers stationed at home like a few extra olive-drab t-shirts or comfortable camouflage utilities to wear while off-duty, and deployed soldiers love to receive uniform gifts that include extra socks, t-shirts, underwear and other clothing items.
The U.S. Marine Corps is well known for its “Dress Blues,” but these beautiful full dress uniforms are only issued to a small percentage of Marines.
The same is true for the full dress uniforms of the other branches of service, and most military personnel who want to wear full dress uniforms for off-duty special occasions must buy them at their own cost.
They make perfect uniform gifts for participants in military weddings.
Many different types of uniforms and other military clothing can be purchased online.
Uniform gifts for deployed soldiers, sailors and airmen always come in handy while they’re away from home.
And some civilians wear military clothing from time to time: family members of deployed troops showing their support for their loved ones;
hunters who love the camouflage and comfort provided by BDUs; and other civilians who just want to present a military-style appearance.
Any of these civilians would appreciate uniform gifts too.
Online shops feature a wide array of uniform gifts and military clothing for sale.
- Utility uniforms
- thermal pants and shirts
along with other types of military clothing such as
- caps and jackets with designs
that incorporate military slogans or insignia, are waiting to become uniform gifts.
Uniform gifts are patriotic, and they’re useful too.
