     DO NOT SEND NAKED PICTURES TO BASIC! Maybe if it's like ranger school, or something like that but naked pictures and basic are a bad call. Even naked pictures overseas are a bad call. Not only can other people sometimes see them, they also can steal them and use them, if you know what I mean. Also, anything embarrassing, like the boxers, will be drill sgt. ammo, so think about that before you send.
    A valentine's day rain check of what you will do for him when he graduates could be cool. Also depending on the rules, you can send care pkgs, just know what you can and can't send. Cookies he can share are always a hit. Even though you want to make your dude feel special, you should remeber his buddies, too. Happy vs jealous platoon members will make your boyfriend's life better.
     Pictures are good. Cute Pictures, happy pictures, but just think about what you and your guy are comfortable with before you send.
 Don't be "that" girlfriend. Cause there's always one who sends something that is against the rules and can have negative impact on your signifigant other.

Love is patient, Love is kind, It does not envy; it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude it is not self-seeking it is not easily angered it keeps no record of wrongs. love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth It always protects always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres

Update: That Valentine's day (l2008) I sent a homemade card with a poem I wrote to him and a love coupon book. He used them all up when he got home (August 2008)
And I never sent nude pictures since while he was away I was either pregnant or in just-gave-birth-weight Grin
But thanks to all for the advice, I know a lot of people here have spouses or bfs or gfs in military, and we have to keep in mind the dangers of sending some things  Wink

When my husband was in tech school (after basic) I would send him boxes of his fave stuff.  Like an outfit civilian clothes for wearing during off time, his favorite candy, etc.  Stuff so that he knew I was thinking of him.  If your guy is in basic- just send a nice demure letter because the drill sergeant will try to humiliate him if they can.  You can always have a delayed Valentine's Day when he gets back!!
