I have not tried this myself but it might be something to assist you:

What is APTonCD?

APTonCD is a tool with a graphical interface which allows you to create 
one or more CDs or DVDs (you choose the type of media) with all of the 
packages you've downloaded via APT-GET or APTITUDE, creating a removable 
repository that you can use on other computers.
APTonCD will also allow you to automatically create media with all of 
your .deb packages located in one especific repository, so that you can 
install them into your computers without the need for an internet
