Running from place to place to find the perfect gift is exhausting and taking the chance of ordering something online that may not arrive on time or may not be exactly what you anticipated (and then taking extra time to return the item via mail) all leads to increased holiday stress. Our MPRA Gift Shop is here to alleviate this stress and help you enjoy the holidays with your friends and family. Below, you’ll find our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide and some of our recommendations for those special people in your life:
For your spouse:
We know not everyone is looking for jewelry, but for those who are, we have beautiful lapel pins, necklaces, and charms that will help her show off her pride for her MP. For those who are looking for something a little more laid back, check out our selection of MP wife shirts.
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the male spouses out there! Our Grunt Style gear is always a popular choice, especially this MP Crossed Pistols hoodie. If your guy is more practical and likes to be prepared, this Military Police Swiss Army knife could be the perfect solution.
For your commander and his or her family:
Military tradition often calls for plenty of holiday receptions and parties, but if you’re looking for a special way to thank your commander or senior enlisted advisor our gift shop has what you need. We have a variety of desktop replicas of the statues you can find in our Regiment’s Memorial Grove, including a Cross Pistol statue, the WWII MP statue, and the Marechaussee statue. These also make excellent separation or retirement gifts.
For your battle buddy:
For the person who has stood beside you through daily garrison challenges and deployment stress, you’ll need something that conveys not just your appreciation for their support, but also their dedication to the Military Police Regiment. The Military Police Regimental History Book provides a comprehensive history of our Regiment, as well as personal accounts and stories from those who have served at every level. This book should be on the shelves of every Military Police service member!
For your parents:
Though we have a large selection of MP mom and MP dad apparel and other items, this is the time of year to think Christmas. Our gift shop has a number of MP Christmas ornaments that would make a great gift for your parents and would allow them to show their MP pride every holiday season.
For the kids:
What kid can resist a soft, cute stuffed animal…especially one that comes accessorized with a Military Police bandana? Our Bobo’s plush dogs come in different colors and can easily be added under the tree. For those kids of our Regiment’s K9 handlers or for those kids who dream of becoming K9 handlers, this German Shepherd plush with a Military Police shirt¬†would be an excellent idea.
Bonus ideas:
Our Military Police socks make an excellent stocking stuffer! Grab a pair or two and spread the holiday joy by helping Santa out and slipping a pair of these socks into your family members’ stockings.
An MPRA membership is the gift that gives all year long. Military Police service members or veterans, as well as other law enforcement-connected professionals are eligible for a Standard membership and family and friends can take advantage of our Friends and Family membership.
