Everyone loves to receive mail, and it's a great idea for when you feel like you have nothing to do. Why not spend some time creating some pieces of mail and brighten up someone else's day? A fun way to up the game is to send what many people call "happy mail"-- it's basically the idea of sending as much happiness as you can cram into one envelope.
WHY YOU SHOULD SEND HAPPY MAIL
I think a lot of times people think that in order to send a "care package" it has to be larger and cost a pretty penny for shipping, especially if it's international. It really doesn't have to be, though! You can have just as much fun and send just as much joy with a standard envelope. I've collected 45 awesome ideas that are perfect for slipping in a little envelope. They're flat enough to fit, and most of these ideas are totally fine even for international customs. (I have a couple that could be iffy depending on the country you're sending it to, and those are marked with asterisks. Please make sure it is approved before attempting to send).

Perhaps you've not really been in the habit of letter writing and don't know where to start. Don't worry!
