How long is he going for? Darling Husband and I spent last Christmas apart, because I was visiting my parents in Europe and he didn’t have vacation time left. I called him on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The day I got back, we did our “Christmas Morning” with opening gifts and sitting by the fire place. It was very nice and it didn’t matter that it wasn’t the exact day.

Keep in mind that he’ll probably bring gifts for his family and get gifts from them, too. He will already have lots of stuff to bring to Bahrain and back home. I had to re-pack and put a pair of jeans in my carry on at the check in, because I was over the weight limit.

@HisLittleRed:  I wouldn’t send anything by mail if he’s only gone for a short amount of time. With international packages, you just never know when they’ll get there, especially around Christmas time. They could be on the road for a couple of months!

I would just try to Skype or talk on Christmas and then celebrate together when he gets back. With customs I think a wrapped resent would just complicate things too much.

I wouldn’t mail him anything either. For work, I mail a lot of things internationally and it can cost over $100 to mail something over 3 or 4lbs. If he’s gone less than a month, I vote to just wait for him to get back and give him a gift then.

Another idea would be to hide letters in his suitcase or in different outfits that are sweet love notes or christmas cards that he can open as he goes through his things.
