Gifts Ideas For Member Of The Military

Gifts Ideas For Member Of The Military

For many families, the holiday is a most wonderful time of year loaded with laughter, exchanging presents, and singing carols. But that’s not the case for everyone. Military families have loved ones deployed overseas and this requires a little more love and a lot of creativity on the part of the families. This is the time of year when adults and children are coping with trying to deal with missing family members.

We are providing a list of gifts for service members and their families during the holidays.

Daddy And Mommy Dolls

Young children are going without hugs from their mothers and fathers. This might just be a wonderful gift for them.  These children might call them a Daddy Doll, Mommy Doll, or even a Hug-A-Hero Doll. These dolls are great for helping to fill the gap with a missing loved one. The Daddy Doll website offers other great gifts s well including dog tags, baby loves, and pet pillows.

The USO Workbook

The USO Workbook will let you purchase gifts for service members to celebrate the holidays. Some gifts include comfort food kits, deployment kits, tech to connect, phone calls home, long distant bedtime stories, and send an e-card with a personal message.


Get A Gift Card From Bronzery

The Bronzery is the only company in the United States that will bronze absolutely anything. They are known for bronzing military items from hats/helmets to boots.

With their fabulous gift card, family and friends can order online on their website at any time.  The company will send the item out to be bronzed and get them back in 6 to 8 weeks. This could make an excellent gift for members of the military!


Operation Homefront Holiday Meals and Toy Drive

Operation Homefront distributes meals to thousands of military families around the country through their Holiday Meals For Military program.  

The meal includes turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, and vegetables.  Registration varies by location. Operation Homefront also has a Holiday Toy Drive program for distributing toys and gift cards for military families.

To donate toys, visit your local Dollar Tree store in November and December. Also, check out Operation Homefront’s Facebook page to catch up on events and registration. 

Portraits Of Love

This company sets up photoshoots for service members’ families across the country. Their goal is to create memorable portraits to send to service members overseas and their family members at home. They are in partnership with USO allowing the Portraits of Love program to reach many more military families.

Trees For Troops

Let’s face it Christmas is just not the same without a Christmas tree.  Trees For Troops provides trees for service members in all branches of the military and for their families both in the United States and overseas. Trees For Troops is able to do this through donations, sponsorships, grants, and volunteers.

United Through Reading

This is an excellent program allowing deployed troops to read books to their children even if they are not home. Service members read a book out loud at selected locations where it’s being recorded with the help of a volunteer.

At most recording locations, the volunteer will give you the video and the book that you can mail to your child.  Also, recordable books are available at various stores including Hallmark, Amazon.com, Barnes, and Noble. Kids can send a book back to their deployed parents and show off their reading skills.

Everyone can make these at little cost and you can get supplies using military discounts through Michaels and JOANN. Why not try your hand at making homemade goodies to send off to service members?

Bronzed Military Boots


Whether for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, or other special occasions, choosing a special gift for your military family members can be pretty hard, especially if you yourself have never served. But you know how important it is to show them how much you love them and appreciate what they have done for your country and your family – to make sure your gifts are personalized and have a certain sentimental value. To help you out, we've compiled a list of nine best gift ideas for your military family members.


If your military family member has kept their military boots, think about preserving them in bronze and turning them into a personal monument of their service. We at Bronzery can do this for you. We can also mount them on the base of your choice and add a personalized inscription or add rank pins to the set.


Another great item to turn into a bronze token of their time spent in the military is their cover or a hat. You can have this cover mounted on wooden, metal, or marble base and add a picture or engrave a sweet message to it.


Few things are more patriotic than the American eagle statue. Your military family member will love it and be filled with pride every time they look at it.


Made to hold a properly folded veteran’s flag, this is the perfect gift for veterans, military retirees, and those that are about to retire.


Order a caricature of your military family member in a scene of your choice (driving a tank, flying a military helicopter, or other) – it will be original and amusing, but still, a very thoughtful gift that will make your military family member smile from ear to ear.


Because the US Military runs on coffee, you can’t go wrong with a personalized military coffee mug. Besides the official insignia of the military, you can also have the member’s name added.


Military-themed stockings are a great gift for the military member who’s coming home for Christmas. Add something that will remind them of you while they’re away, and don’t forget to add a supportive and loving message.


You can buy glass ornaments featuring the emblem of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard, or you can have some of your military member’s personal memorabilia bronzed and turned into an ornament.


Buy a personalized military keychain that will remind your military family member of their time spent in service. You can also use one of their personal keepsakes and have it bronzed and turned into a keychain, so they can take it with them everywhere they go. Think about adding a personalized message to it as well.

And to complete your gift, add lots and lots of love.
