Christmas in prison~What can you send to prisoners?
 
Can we send gifts other then books to inmates? I know I can order books thru amazon but is other things ok? Like cards, games etc. I know my son mentioned his bunky likes to play chess all day so I was thinking they must be allowed those things right? I would really appreciate any help!

Nope you can't send them any games. You can only send them books, magazines etc. Everything else they have to order themselves. Sorry! I know it sucks but that is reality right now.

You have to make sure the books are from amazon not a third party.

Other things you can have sent...... magazine subscriptions, subscription to the local paper, pictures, cards, word or soduko type puzzles on paper, lyrics, jokes...........

hi how are you? hope your christmas was nice. i sent the book today while i was on the phone with him. it was so much fun. it was like he was here with me cause he was teasing me about ignoring him when im online, it was so funny. anyways, lionsheart, thankyou for your help on this with me and ra justice thankyou as well. and if you wanna let all of us know of any of the books you read that would be inspiring im into reading right now and you know why lol thanks again:thumbsup:

You probably won't have to inspire him into reading. It seems to come naturally to quite a few of the guys because there isn't much else to do. Quite often I send my husband some of the same books that I am reading so that we can read them together and then talk about them. We do this a lot with short stories.
