Default Does federal allow 3rd party packages?

Hi,
I have ordered special holiday packages previously, but he was in state, not federal. I have seen that they don’t allow any packages regularly, but wondering if they have holiday packs for federal?
Also, for the holidays, do they have anything special that can be purchased on commissary?

Thanks in advance

As far as I know federal prisons do not allow packages they can only purchase what is on their canteen list. I could be wrong but that is my understanding.

You can send books and reading materials from Amazon and Barnes and Noble and those types of things to Federal.

Also, they give them a "holiday" gift bag around Christmas with goodies, but that's it. (At least where my husband is they get this gift bag)
