Today is President’s Day and I’ve spent much of it at my computer. I’ve been semi-working and semi-researching. A few weeks ago I had the grand idea to send surprise snail-mail to everyone in my database for whom I have a postal mailing address and it has me SUPER EXCITED.
You see, I love to get things in the mail that are not bill-related.
I like going to the mailbox and going “oh, wow, what’s this?” only to discover that someone actually thought to send me something without trying to sell me something.
I think that’s cool.
So today I’ve been online searching for cool things to send in the mail. It’s a bit tricky, because I want it to be personal, yet at the same time, fun and useful. I want people to get the mail, open the envelope and think “oh, today’s a good day. I feel special and I will NOT be throwing this in the trash anytime soon”
I want to spread joy, and maybe a bit of education and inspiration in the meantime. I’ve come up with a cool list of about 15 things I can send, depending on cost, time and degree of difficulty.
I need your help though. Without me exposing my list, can you tell me what cool things you’ve received in the mail before? It can be small or large, personal or practical. I need some input because left to my own devices and my tiny perspective I just might miss something awesome.
Can you share your thoughts below?
