Need Swag ideas

Ive got a few things but would like military swag items.

Patches. There's a cache in my area that has an assortment of squadron and command patches for one particular branch. It's quite an interesting collection to look through.

 

That's what I was going to say.

 

Avoid anything that looks remotely like a weapon- including inert grenades (can you even buy these anymore?) and ammo. Inert ammo as Travel Bugs might be okay, but multiple quantities in an ammo can might be more than the average muggle brain can contain.

Well you may have seen my post with my newly painted ammo can. I need some ideas on what to fill it with.

I third the patches idea. Are you current or former military, or do you have to go buy all the swag at the surplus store? 'Cause it's looking to me like $6 a patch on the internet.

I am former military but Im not giving away my stuff. Patches I can get cheap from surplus. Plus I bought about 20 p-38's. You army guys will know what that is.

Seriously, what about loading one up with a few MREs?

Not a good idea. Did you forget "no food left in caches"? Even in the original wrapper animals can snif an MRE.

I've seen several military themed caches. Patches, rank insignia, toy soldiers and military equipment. If you check some of the military surplus type businesses or something like Sportsmen's Guide they occasionally will have a special on military patches, pins, and similar items from around the world in bulk for very cheap prices.

Take a trip to the closest military surplus store and wander about, you'll find all kinds of neat stuff that you would never think of.

 

Make sure it's a true surplus store and not a chain that sells knockoffs.

 

The national chain store Dick's Sporting Goods, for example, still owns a few Dick's Army-Navy Surplus stores, which is where the chain got its roots. Our local Dick's Army-Navy store, for example, has lots of military-looking stuff, but not a bit of it is military surplus!

 

A true surplus store has stuff piled in heaps that most folks have never seen and would have no idea what to do with, cruising those stores is worth the trip just to see what they have... you will find plenty of small cheap interesting things for a military cache.

I have an idea for a the,ed cache that's sure to keep on task.

 

Make a (insert from list below) exchange cache.

 

Superball

McToy

Marble

Pokemon, Digimon, Magic, Card

Signature item

Sticker

Army Man

 

Those would definately be able to stay on theme. And if there are more frequently traded items in your area, add them to the list.
