Mini Care Packages
I love the idea of mini-care packages! Little figurines, game pieces, interesting labels, erasers and small shiny things... I grew up in a home full of these things, so there can seem to be an art to the interestingly placed items. If nothing else, they should bring a smile or small laugh to the receiver and if they get thrown out or passed on, no harm done.
Be aware though- if you are sending this fun mail as a package, the U.S. postal system (and likely most postal systems) require packages be of a certain size in order to put proper postage on them. So you may need to put these cute little surprises in manila envelopes. Or, if the package is less than 13 oz. try you luck mailing it as regular mail! If an item is 13 oz. or less you should be able to mail it with a stamp.
