I don’t know about you, but I have always loved receiving letters in the mail. I get excited to receive anything in the mail that isn’t a bill or junk mail. Unfortunately in this day and age anything not a bill or junk mail is few and far in between since text messages and emails have taken over our communication. Even the postcard from my dentist reminding me I am due for a checkup excites me! At least the reminder is colorful 🙂 The excitement is heightened more when it is an unexpected card.
Although I do love receiving these, I have to admit I am not the best in sending them. I have always been good at purchasing the cards and gifts, but tend to forget about the driving to the post office to send them part. I made a commitment to myself that I would start resisting the procrastination and focus more on the relationships in my life and how to always give my all. Sometimes “giving it your all” can feel a bit much at times because we have become idle with other forms of communication that are not text based.
So I found a meaningful and easy way of showing your love, postcards! I always loved the look of postcards more so than the Hallmark cards (nothing wrong with them, just my preference!) And did I mention you just pop them in your mailbox! So I started sending them to my friends as an unexpected “thinking of you” surprise. Plus, who doesn’t love receiving something that isn’t a bill?

I also found another great company from one of my longtime favorite sites, Uncrate. Uncrate is a site dedicated to cool gadgets for guys, but I love it too! Anyways, the company I found is called, Telegram Stop. It is an online service that allows you to type in your message and also include uploaded photos on a vintage-looking card, in addition to sending it anywhere in the country!
These are just some great cheap ways of showing your love for someone in your life and are more meaningful than the average gift you will buy and like me, forget to send! Send me your address (address safe with me) and I will send you a post card! firstname.lastname@example.org
