Being a military spouse is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding, roles out there. These men and women are the backbone of our military families, sacrificing their own careers and lives to support their loved ones, enduring deployments, constant moves, and long hours spent apart.

So, what can we do to show our appreciation for all they do (or at least a very small token of that appreciation)? Here are some ideas for the best gifts for military spouses, sure to make their lives just a little bit easier.

Best Military Spouse Gifts

Someone writing a physical letter on paper, one of the most thoughtful military spouse gifts

1. Hand-written Letter

It's easy to overlook their unique role, but military spouses sacrifice so much for our country in their own right. Sometimes a simple heartfelt "thank you" goes a long way, and a hand-written letter is a thoughtful way to express your gratitude.

2. Day of Pampering

Everyone deserves a day of pampering now and then, and military spouses are no exception! Treat them to a massage, manicure/pedicure, facial, or any other spa service. This is one of those gifts people usually don't treat themselves to, making it even sweeter! 

3. Meal Delivery Service Subscription

With everything military families have on their plates (pun very much intended), the last thing they want to worry about is dinner. A meal delivery service takes care of that for them, plus it keeps on giving week after week, making it one of the best military spouse gifts.

Someone using a remote control to work their TV with a streaming service, one of the most practical military spouse gifts

4. Streaming Service Subscription

Whether it's Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, or something else (make sure to find out what they already have first!), a subscription to a streaming service is the perfect way to help them relax and unwind after long days.

5. Cleaning Service

Trying to keep the house clean on top of everything else going on, especially if their serviceman or woman is deployed, can be one of the most stressful parts of being military. A gift certificate for a professional cleaning service is the perfect military spouse gift, helping to alleviate some stress.

For something a bit more personalized, one of the best military spouse gifts is a Camo Wanderchain paired with a few Military Tokens. The sky's the limit with how these can be customized, so consider adding tokens from the bases they've lived at, their dream list bases, or something else. 


Thank you, military spouses, for everything you do! We know that being part of a military family comes with more than its fair share of unique challenges, but we also know that it comes with incredible rewards. We hope you enjoy these small military spouse gifts as tokens of our appreciation for all that you do!
