50 Things to Send Your Pen Pal

I love a good list, don’t you? This ultimate list of 50 things to send your pen pal should never fail you. You will have endless ideas to choose from! I know when I first started pen paling, I struggled a bit with thinking of some cute things to add in besides the letter itself.  This post will help you so you don’t struggle like I did. 

There are all manner of things you can send, goodies, ephemera, stickers, artist trading cards, small jewelry, candy, tea and more. This is a list of flat things that will fit in an envelope so you don’t spend so much on postage. Without further ado, check out the whole list below.
