Monica, depending on what sort of hobbies, likes... your pal has it may help on getting ideas of what sort of things to send. Each time you go to the store, try to make it into a game of finding things that are flat, and light in weight that you can just include in. Ex. if your pal likes to garden, you could send them seeds. If they like to try new foods, then maybe you could send them a spice packet. Or you could send something according to the holiday or season that your card is being mailed. Ex. For Christmas, you could send an ornament..... items do not need to be expensive, just a couple of dollars or less. But I do ask that all items be new/sealed.... it's just another fun thing to receive along with the card. Hope that helps you, and everyone else on here who needs ideas.
