Holiday gift idea - letter writing care packages
November 19, 2015 1:00pm CST
For those families who would like to keep more in touch, I was thinking it could be fun to make up letter writing gift boxes. The more you make, the less you pay per box, so it's nice if you have a lot of people on your list. You could go to the dollar store (or local department store) and get a lot of smallish, flat boxes. In each one, you can put an assortment of papers, envelopes, pens, stickers, and other things that make writing letters easier. If you are especially nice, include a sheet of stamps. You can customize each box to the person you are sending it to - it makes it easier for them to write letters because they have a handy box, and the message is clear: I want to hear from you! Not only that, but you might get something back in the mail besides bills.

Ha ha ha, use the discounted postage you get online? My early lessons of writing thank you notes have stuck. I think I'll keep writing letters. It does lead to more junk to save around the house, but it's nice to hold something in my hand that someone else wrote and sent. And nice to know someone else will be doing the same.
