Easter Gift Ideas - In the Mailbox Mickey and Minnie Mouse Plush Toys and More... (Review)

In the Mailbox Minnie MouseIn the Mailbox Mickey Mouse

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 --  With Easter a few weeks away, I wanted to share a few gift ideas that can be purchased off of the 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:

In the Mailbox Candy Hearts Bracelet

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. :-)

Earthscapes Jigsaw Puzzle 
Love puzzles?  Then, why not pick up the Earthscapes Jigsaw Puzzle for only $17.95?

In the Mailbox “I Love You” Bear
Say "I Love You," with this cute, cuddly In the Mailbox "I Love You" Bear for only $11.99.

Do you have a relative or family friend (niece, nephew, grandchild, godchild, etc.) that lives far away, that you like sending gifts to for the holidays?  If so, then you will want to make a point to check out the above items I mentioned, as well as their assortment of jewelry, stationary and notecard sets, plush toys and more, that can be ordered directly from the USPS store.  And, with only a couple of weeks away, you don't want to delay in placing your order, as you wouldn't want to miss the Easter delivery cutoff.  Once you see these cute gift ideas up close, you will wonder why you didn't think of checking out the USPS online store sooner, and will want to bookmark their site to visit again and again when the need for gift giving to those who don't live near arises. :-)  Or, surprise your little ones with a delivery from USPS just for them.  I know my girls love to get mail for them -- especially when it is a fun new toy or gift for them. :-)

Choosing a gift at one of the In the Mailbox Holiday Gift Centers found exclusively at the Postal Service or at 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.
