Remember during the Christmas season last year when I mentioned that the USPS offers some great gift ideas that can be ordered from their online store and then shipped to the recipient in easy to mail boxes? If you missed my post/review, click here to read it now -- http://www.inspiredbysavannah.com/2012/12/holiday-gift-ideas-letters-to-santa.html. With Easter a few weeks away, I wanted to share a few gift ideas that can be purchased off of the USPS.com online store -- yes, they do have a store offering more than just shipping labels and packaging. I have to say, that if I hadn't stumbled upon a press release last November, I would have never known about their amazing selection of mailable gifts for children and adults. But, now that I do, I have been taking advantage of their product offering, and sent gifts to family and friends who live far away for Valentine's Day and Easter, and plan to continue with Mother's Day and birthdays this year. Just look at what you can order at a reasonable price at the USPS store, that would make for great Easter basket gifts:
These cute In the Mailbox Mickey and Minnie Mouse Plush toys are only $14.99, and come in a mailable box.
This In the Mailbox Love Ribbons Necklace is only $9.99, and can be paired with a matching bracelet (also $9.99)
This In the Mailbox Candy Hearts Bracelet, also only $9.99, has become Savannah's favorite "big girl" jewelry. She loves pairing it with all her outfits, and showing it off. :-)
Love puzzles? Then, why not pick up the Earthscapes Jigsaw Puzzle for only $17.95?
Say "I Love You," with this cute, cuddly In the Mailbox "I Love You" Bear for only $11.99.
Choosing a gift at one of the In the Mailbox Holiday Gift Centers found exclusively at the Postal Service or at www.usps.com/shop is a great way to say "I love you." Loved ones everywhere will receive love in the mail and the sender gets the gift of time saved.
