What would you send a friend to remind them of the Alamo City? |Graphic by SATXtoday Team
We’ve all had a family member, friend, or a co-worker who has moved away from the 210. But there are plenty of ways to remind them of San Antonio.

A postcard, stickers, or even a book is nice — but have you ever sent them a care package?

City Editor Nicholas here, when I lived in Colorado for a short period of time, my family sent me a box to remind me of home. In it, there were H-E-B tortillas (the non-buttered ones), Big Red, a couple of pieces of pan dulce, and a keychain (I lost it, sorry mom).

Dear reader, what items would you put in a San Antonio care package? Let us know by taking our survey, and you may be featured in an upcoming newsletter.

From the editor
I’m really excited to see what you submit for a San Antonio-themed care package. I often dream of the H-E-B tortillas, especially when they’re nice and warm in the store.

Looks like I’m having breakfast tacos tomorrow.
