Choosing a Christmas gift for a Marine should be the last item on your list of worries. Just the thought of being on Holiday Leave and home with family makes us overjoyed.
As a Marine and someone who interacts with Marines on a daily basis, I can say most of us have very simple needs. We like to workout. We like buy tactical looking gear for no reason. And far less often than we should, we spend time developing what General Amos called our “30 Year Old Body and 5000 Year Old Mind.” I’ve broken these gift ideas into three areas: educational, practical, and nice to haves.
