    I used to have a ton of penpals when I was in high school and I would make my own envelopes out of tiny pieces of origami paper. I wish I had thought of these fun ways to mail something then.

    I have a friend at work who brings in clean, dry water bottles filled with M and M candy. They are easy to share that way. I bet you could mail a waterbottle full of M and Ms and everyone would like that!
