Do you have a loved one who's away from home and feeling lonely? These items are just what you need to keep them from feeling homesick for Shreveport-Bossier!

I asked my friends for recommendations for the perfect care package from Shreveport-Bossier on social media and they had jokes. No, I'm not looking to send ammo, spent casings, or bulletproof vests. I wanted items that would evoke the very best memories of life alongside the Red.

Here are our definitive top ten items in no particular order. Make sure to click the post below for more local gift ideas.
1. Community Coffee
2. Southern Maid Donuts
3. Down Home Sausage
4. Monjuni's pasta sauce and olive mix
5. Johnny's Pizza
6. Crawfish
7. 'Geaux' cups - Mardi Gras and other plastic 'Louisiana fine china.'
8. Tabasco sauce, Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning, Louisiana Hot Sauce, Crystal, etc...
9. King Cake
10. Strawn's icebox pie

My personal honorable mentions include a muffuletta from Fetita's, the shrimp aurora and shrimp toast from the Monjuni's on Louisiana Avenue, the Shrimp Buster from Herby K's, the steak and au gratins from the Cub, a margarita from Superior, and two for one at Cajun Daiquiri! Did we miss any? drop a comment in the post below and feel free to give me a follow.

If a friend or loved one was missing Shreveport-Bossier, what would you send in a care package?
