We love sending snail mail...it's sort of a passion, especially in the middle of this (sometimes overwhelming) generation of technology! You'll get a bigger smile by sending something physical...even a handwritten note is sweet, and certainly more thoughtful than just an email. So, in the spirit of the November season...we sent out little care packages to our friends with the help of our friends over at Shopify! Our e-commerce website is planted at Shopify, and it's been so helpful in helping us reach more of our readers. So we decided to do a little shopping at our neighbors' shops - Freckled Fawn, Sugar Fina, Salty Road, and Paper Cookie, to gather little sweet treats for our mail recipients.
So we put together the below...
These are yummy 'Champagne Bears' from Sugar Fina...probably the best gummy bears we've ever tasted! What the perfect twist to our favorite traditional candy. They're great stocking stuffers if you're in need of some fillers!
Of course, we had to refill our washi tape inventory with some gold and some dots! These were from Freckled Fawn, and we loved using them to seal our packages.
We discovered The Salty Road recently, through its Kickstarter campaign. They're also sold at Anthropologie stores! They also have an online shop to make things just a bit easier. Who knew taffy could taste this great? And their design of their boxes are absolutely lovely.
We figured you might want to put together some holiday presents...and these are just the perfect toppers if you're looking to add the finishing touches to your already special gifts. What do you think? Would this be something you'd put together?
Mailing these out could make your friends' and families' day just a bit sweeter. So maybe send a little hello out this holiday season...or any season for that matter!
