From the Desk Of

A few of my closest friends have taken to travel this summer -- San Francisco, Austria, and even Australia! Skype can be grainy, and phone calls are pricey. I've taken to the days of letter writing and it's quickly becoming a new hobby of mine. I found it so fun to find little things to fit into an envelope without paying the price of a package! Some great for small "just because" envelope:

  • Perfume samples
  • Magnets
  • Stickers (I used book labels with C.S. Lewis quotes)
  • Stationary 
  • Tea, coffee, treats!
  • Small containers of lotion
  • Touches of home (I put in a penny)
  • Flattened flowers
  • Customized crosswords 
  • Concert or sporting event tickets 
  • I always put in a card, as well as a "gift guide" 

It's also fun to get crafty! I sent some tea packages, wrapped in twine with a little clock from Anthropologie and a note I cut out. 

What are some things you've put in care packages and letters? 


  1. I love the tea package idea! So clever!

  2. It's such an easy way to be crafty in sending something they're sure to love!
