Confetti- First and foremost, celebrate! You both did it! Find a time, a space, and let the celebration begin! And don’t worry, the pieces are big for easy clean up. (Handmade by the Fronts Box team!)
“Better Together” pillowcases- Just like these cases, you two are better together than apart. Sure, a pillow with a random word is functionable, but until the two pillows are together is it obvious that they are meant to go together. During deployment, Boot Camp, or training, you both were functioning humans but with half your heart across the country or world. Just like these pillowcases, both Heroes are Better Together.

“Be Kind” print- Keep this print in a common area you both can peep often. Remember during a military obligated separations (MOS), you both had different experiences, schedules, routines, and priorities from each other. During this season of coming back together, please choose kindness and grace over frustration. (By Greater Joy Design – Platteville, WI)
“Gimme Some Space” sticker- During this phase of reintegration, it’s okay to request some space to process and digest what happened while you two were apart and the challenges and successes of coming back together again. We suggest laying this sticker out or giving it to each other as a sort of token, requesting some space while you take a nap, a bath, or a walk, if you need a moment to breathe and collect yourself.

Clock pin- As cliché as it is, time helps to heal. During deployment or other MOSs, both Heroes may go through a range of emotions and in their own time, and that’s healthy. We suggest discussing these openly with each other so if issues arise, you are facing the issue as a team, as opposed to fighting with each other. We also know there are experiences that can not easily be erased with time- please do not face them alone and reach out for help if it is needed. (By The Divine Iguana – Detroit, MI)
We loved everything that came in the kit. All great tools for a healthy reintegration!
