these next two ideas are from the awesome blog katherine marie photography.
send a box of candy with no extra packaging! too fun!!

know someone who needs a little pick me up? send them some sunshine in a box like katherine did for friends of hers. she even included a little craft for the kids. this is sure to brighten any one's day.


  1. Thanks so much for posting my balloon pocket card! I guest posted about it for Mother's Day but did not even rethink to repost it for Father's Day! I am so happy you shared it!

  2. I love all of these ideas! My favorite is the birthday postcard poster. What a cool idea. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

  3. I love "You Gotta See This" thanks for always giving me some great ideas for the upcoming week!

  4. Now this is what I call GOOD MAIL. I even have stickers that state that for fun packages and letters I send.

  5. awesome ideas! especially love the sunshine in a box.

  6. ooh these are making me wish I got mail!! LOVE the last yellow stuff!

  7. Have you seen this birthday in a box? I'm working to gather the stuff up for my girlfriend right now.

  8. Those are all such lovely ideas. I am going to be mailing birthday invitations on Monday and they are going to be in a bottle. They are for my sons pirate party. I actually just found out this past Monday that you could ship a bottle. I was crazy excited. I think I am going to put some coloring pages in there to excite the other boys for the party.

  9. Hi!
    These are cute!
    I am your Follower.
    I really like your blog! Great posts!
    Keep up the good work!
    Do visit my blog too and follow it if you like it!
    Have a Nice day, God Bless!


  10. When I was in college, my friends and I would send each other crazy mail over breaks. We really liked to send those HUGE bouncy balls (you know the ones you can get for like $5 at Target in a huge bin). They always loved having to hold it still to weigh it. You just write your letter on the outside of it and leave room for a stamp. My mom also once mailed me a large plastic Easter egg with a letter written on the outside. Fun stuff. Good ideas and a good reminder!!

  11. these are ALL SO FUN!! seriously, i could bookmark them all. i think i'll do that :)

  12. So cute! I've also seen a plastic "bouncy ball" mailed with "have a ball on your birthday!" written on it. Can't remember. I think that was on giverslog too. Love it!

  13. I'm giddy with excitement about the postcard poster idea. My little boy is turning three soon and gets such a kick out of collecting mail. I am going to organise this for him as he will get such a kick out of receiving mail during his birthday week. What an awesome idea that I am going to make a family tradition for my three children.

    Actually, I love all of the ideas in this awesome post. Thank you for sharing this gooness!

  14. These are all fun ideas. I love the birthday poster one though. My daughter's bday is in a month so maybe I can do this one. Thanks for sharing the links to all these good ideas. Keep them coming.

  15. All I need is two first class stamps to send the candy in the mail?

  16. I got the balloon invitation idea from here! It was great, after some research I did order custom printed balloons so they were professionally created. I had to look around cause most places wont do small quanitities but I found that did an AMAZING job for my invitations! Everyone Loved Them!
