How to Craft the Perfect Happy Mail Care Package

How to Craft the Perfect Happy Mail Care Package

We love sending fun gifts and letters to faraway friends, and there’s nothing better than getting some snail mail yourself. So why not give a gift that does both?

We’ve created the ultimate present for the stationery lover: a happy mail care package! Your long-distance buddy will be stocked up on supplies to stay in contact with you and all their other pen pals. This is also a perfect idea for those college students that need a little love at their new home away from home.

Stamps are an ideal addition to any happy mail care package, and our handy little happy mail stamp set is perfect for decorating cards, envelopes and all outgoing mail. Each stamp in the set is also available to purchase individually, so you can pick and choose your favorites, too. From a patient snail, to a pretty passenger pigeon, to a stuffed mailbox, these stamps add that something special to each letter.

Find or decorate a box that captures the personality of your friend or family member. Michaels has tons of photo and storage boxes to choose from, whether you’re looking for wooden, cardboard or anything in between. You can even use a folder organizer if that’s more your style.

Next, fill the box with letter-writing materials, office supplies and other favorites:

  • Envelopes
  • Cards and other stationery
  • Notepads
  • Address book
  • Pencils & pens
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Sticky notes and page markers
  • Erasers
  • Postage stamps
  • Washi tape
  • Stickers
  • Gift tags
  • Paper clips
  • Push pins
  • Ink
  • Rubber stamps (duh!)

Give your gifts a polished look by tying together envelopes and cards or writing utensils with string — then the recipient can use the string, too! You can even attach ribbon or pockets to the cover of your box to hold some of your supplies and make more room for other goodies. Crinkle paper fills crevices and provides a nice cushion for the contents.
