Everyone loves to receive snail mail. Not only does it feel like a nostalgic gesture that you can hold onto forever, but it also is a fun way to say hello to someone. It shows friends and family far away that you care and makes them feel special. That’s why if you really want to cheer up a loved one, why not surprise them with something different like a potato or beach ball?
It might seem shocking, but these items are allowed by the USPS! All you have to do is write out the address on the object, slap a stamp or two on it, then send it off. For bigger objects like a traffic cone, you’ll need to take it inside the post office. But otherwise, there really isn’t much additional work on your end. This list of 25 things to send in the mail from Shari’s Berries gives you a ton of fun objects you can send in the mail with no packaging at all. It’s a fun way to say “I miss you,” but with even more creative ways to say it!
