We’ve recently received some pretty sweet mail from friends and family.
Sticker-covered brown packages.
Hand-written notes on gorgeous stationery, sealed with washi tape.
Who doesn’t love a good piece of real, hold-it-in-your-hands-with-no-option-to-click-forward-or-delete snail mail?
So I’ve been doing my research.
(You know, on Pinterest, where all scientific research is done.)
I thought if I shared some of my findings, we’d all be inspired to be more thoughtful, and send a handwritten note or package today!
And here’s the challenge:
I’m going to start sending some fun mail and taking pictures. Will YOU ALSO send some fun and/or pretty mail, and send me the pictures to post on my blog? We’ll all inspire each other!
This is gorgeous. Brown craft paper looks fantastic with simple gel-pen doodles and an artistic collage of pretty stamps.
I’ve noticed many people purposely buy lower-value stamps so they can paste more of them along the envelope like a mini-gallery.
(Note to self: Must buy pretty stamps!)
I want this bird stamp! What a stunning package.
I love this blog. It’s filled with package ideas… but it’s not in English. 🙂
Pictures are worth a thousand words, right?
Can you tell I love brown craft paper?
But I’m also a fan of color.
Those little houses are made of washi tape!
Okay, I’ve saved the most fun part for last. There’s a blog called Giver’s Log that shows you all kinds of uncoventional items that can be popped into the mail… instead of a box or envelope! Click here, or browse below

You should really check out the Giver’s Log
for more ideas, including big bouncy balls, Easter eggs, chapstick, and more!
Now go send some mail!
