National Police Week is sneaking back up on us again! This year, it is May 10-16, 2015. I’ve been working on putting together some new ideas in addition to our law enforcement appreciations bags from last year. In the past year, so much negativity has been brought out towards our officers. Being married to one, all the hatred really hurts. There are fantastic guys and gals that go out every day to keep us all safe. It’s great to take a few days to just say thank you and offer a little token of our appreciation. Even a simple “Thank You” says a lot!
If you are looking for some great store-bought gifts for your local officers, Family Christian has a couple to consider. I recommend both the Courageous DVD and the Grace Card DVD. We have both of these and they are fantastic. I honestly don’t think I could pick a favorite between the two. Both are encouraging for not only officers, but fathers as well. Another item that I’m considering grabbing for our guys are these Beatitudes Bookmarks. People often forget the “Blessed are the peacemakers” part.
If you prefer something homemade, I’ve put together some goodies that don’t cost as much as the bags I put together last year, but I know they will still appreciate it! I’ve made some fun printables to go along with these so you can print and make as well. All you need is a printer, some small bags of chips, and some kit-kats!

Here’s a photo of the Kit-Kat one. It’s really basic but cheap enough that you could make a bunch easily.
And of course a reminder of our bags from last year:
And the printables:
- Survival Kit for Sheriff’s Department
- Survival Kit for Police
- Survival Kit for Law Enforcement Officers
- Survival Kit for Soldiers
Do you have any other ideas? I’d love to hear them! How are you saying “Thank You” this year?
