Not sure you need the commander… Just have his wife send the right package and keep the wrong one in the states for you to return after the fact… Plus not tellinthree commander means fewer people to leak the secret early 🙂

I love the idea of having it baked into cupcakes so the cake is either pink or blue and the frosting and cupcake wrapper covers it until you bite in. You may not be able to send him cake with the 2-3 week lag but maybe you could give the envelope to the baker and Skype him in for a cake cutting. If you share the news over Skype, can you record the video for futhre reference? I feel like the gender reaveal could be cute and emotional to show your child eventually.

I like your idea but the thought of having him send one back so you can return stuff seems kind of like a hassel. Also, I imagine your husband does not need to pack up an extra box of baby things on his way home. Would it work with a box full of inflated baloons? Then it would be light to send and also not have to come back to you. Maybe with some thing small like a paci in pink or blue so your husband has something baby with him.

i dont really know of a better way for you to do this. What were you thinking of having in your box? becausei was just thinking that it could be too much for him to carry if it were large. but i really like the idea of making it really special for you and your hubby! and i def understand not wanting to wait two extra weeks just to send him a note at the same time. Perhaps you could write him a note on both blue and pink paper and then get the dude to give him the right one..

ETA, but i understand not wanting someone else to read something that is very personal. its really hard, have any other wives done anything like this that you know of?

I agree w/ the PPs saying that it’s probably a hassle to mail back the other box.  I like the cupcake idea – because then you don’t need to mail anything, so there’s no lag time.  You can ask the wife to take the envelope, check the gender and then order the cupcake for you so it’s revealed to both you and your husband when you cut into the cupcake.  Or, send something that you don’t care to have sent back.
