Everyone loves getting mail (we’re not talking bills here!)–you know the handwritten kind. The kind that means someone actually took the time to sit down and write something special.
In this age of technology, this is something that has definitely gone by the wayside (it’s so much easier to type out a quick email)…so, just imagine the delight on the face of your friend or family member when they open up the mailbox and discover that you’ve sent them something extraordinary !

A pack of markers makes for easy sending too! Who wants to cover up all the color with a brown padded envelope?
For inspiration we recommend walking around a thrift shop or dollar store and see what you could send. We’ve sent frisbees, flip flops, paper plates and more.
