Your Care Package

Scenario:
I am 26, and have been away from home for many years. I have never gotten a care package. After mentioning this to my mother over Christmas, she got the genius idea of sending me one. (Yay guilt trip!) In this care package are a variety of things I can't easily get in the UK like Crest gel toothpaste, a Coffee Crisp bar, a book of crosswords from The Toronto Star, and a 4GB USB drive filled with music from my brother.

Question:
If you were to receive a care package from your family, friends, or loved ones, what five items would you hope for?

My lovely ex wife sends me care packages. They usually contain instant grits, Colgate toothpaste, Honey Nut Oats, Reeses peanut butter cups, and my preferred brand of underarm deodorant.

Well I guess if I needed a care package it would mean I'm not feeling very well, so with that in mind my five heart's desires would be:

Spicy macaroni cheese with apple crumble and custard for dessert.
Comfy slippers, cos I hate it when my feet get cold.
A good sci-fi book to read.
Boiled peanuts to munch on.
Mauritian, vanilla flavoured tea to sip.

Now that is a package to make me feel good. But knowing my family, the macaroni would have no salt or chillies, the crumble would be rhubarb, the slippers would be sandals, the book would be about Australia, the peanuts would be roasted and the tea would be coffee.

On the note of a PSP, why is it so great? Seems to me like an overblown gameboy that you can watch videos on, not much different from my iPod Touch. Correct me if I'm wrong...

I think PSP is a different thing compare to iPod though they are expensive gadgets... PSP is more on the "gamer side" and iPod is more on the "music/artistic" side.
