Do Tell: What Would you Want to Receive and from Whom?



Now that I am older, checking my mail isn't what it used to be. It's now mainly bills with the occasional party or wedding invitation, but back in the good old days, checking your mail was an exciting chore chalk full of surprises, care packages from your grandparents, even high school and college acceptance letters! So ladies, if you could bring back all that excitement, do tell, who would you want to receive a small package from and what would you want it to contain?

I miss the days when I was small and relatives would send me a christmas card w/ some money in it. Oh, those were the good ole' days!lol. I'm not a greedy person however it was always nice to open a card and have some cash fall out of it.

I never receive them, but i try and send postcards to as many special people as possible... postcards are awesome.. and you dnot need an occasion to send them.

I used to be in a little 'club' online where I would sign up with another person to send care packages. We would each make a list of stuff we liked or wanted and we'd make a package for the other and send it to them. It was so much fun, but I can't find any more stuff like that.

Either my best friend or boyfriend, because they put together the most creative packages - usually filled with fun and useless things I don't need but totally cheer me up!

I would welcome any piece of mail that wasn't a bill or credit card offer! :)

Mail doesn't have to be a thing of the past. My best friend and I regularly correspond by mail, as do me and my parents. Even though we talk on the phone regularly, there's just something about hand-written communication that is really special. I take every opportunity to write letters, just so I can get some in return!

I used to love getting presents from my uncle and aunt in California (before they had kids). They would get me exactly what I wanted. Also, I miss the anticipation on getting acceptance letters from colleges. Those were the days. ;)

I had a rich uncle who used to send me boxes filled with $1 bills when I was a kid. That would be fun to receive again.

My best guy friend used to send me letters during the summer months when I was away at my dad's house. I would want him to write me a letter just telling me how his day is. He is in the navy now, and I have only received 1 letter when he was in boot camp 4 years ago :( Or, a postcard from somewhere exotic. I have friends that travel but never send me one :(

I like to receive hand written letters from friends and family. Yes, it can take a week or more to receive, but they're so personal. Or... the yarn I ordered from eBay would be nice, to.
