Great ideas! I'm sure I have about 20 shoeboxes in my closet right now that I'm going to use for the hope chests. One tradition we have is to make holiday cards for the troops. Our state board of education sponsors the program, we just have our students make festive cards with cheerful greetings, and a coordinator from our school makes sure they reach the soldiers overseas.
