The "Creative Mail Ideas" sticky in this forum is a great place to start. It's filled with good ideas.

If you get stuck for things to write about you can always send articles about things he may be interested in... jokes, short stories, sports results, whatever he may like to read about!

I do things like print love songs that make me think of him. Or I write reasons why I love him on little colorful pieces of paper and send them. But I like alot of the ideas that have been posted here.

I have been looking for postcards, but I haven't found many that I really like. I'll have to check out amazon.com, but steer clear of the xoxo selection

Wink Coupon Ideas?

When I was a child my family and I would make 'coupons' for each other that can be used in the future.

My man has less than four months left, so I'm thinking about making up over 100 coupons to send him that he can use after he gets out.

We hadn't dated long before he got incarcerated and therefore haven't had sex. So sex coupons are out, but I still want some sexy ones

Any ideas? Fun/cute/sexy wording would be sweet!

Default Mail Ideas 2

1) I get a lot of jokes e-mailed to me. I cut and paste them onto a word doc and send them. My friend gets a laugh plus he gets a joke to share. 2) At christmas we printed address labels with our friend's address and put them into the Christmas cards we sent out with a note asking everyone to send a card to him. He got a dozen or so extra cards.

I've put together jokes that people e-mail to me and sent them. I've also printed e-mails from others to send so the can be on the CC list. See my post about mail ideas for the christmas cards.

I got curious about the xoxo postcards, so I checked them out. Rubyred1108 was right! They were morbid and too weird for my taste but I did purchase two other boxes and the prices were pretty cheap.

I sent lots of jokes.
I also made this little list that we add to. Its called "Something I love about you" it is on looseleaf lined paper- and at the stop i wrote the title "Something I love about you" and then a little blurb, about 2-3 lines long with why i love him- and then on the left of the line of the paper, i wrote T <3 J and the date. I sent it to him, and he skips a line from what i wrote, and he writes a 2-3 lines about something he loves about me- and then on the left he writes J <3 T and the date, and then he sends it back to me, and I skip a line, and write something i love about him- a couple lines, and on the left, T<3J and the date- send it back-- we've kept this going. It takes about 2-3 days for mail for us- so we each end up getting this piece of paper once a week- when the back and front is filled- i make him a copy of the filled paper and send it to him, and start a new piece of paper over- it takes about 10 weeks to fill up a piece of paper- and its a really good way to pass time and look forward to filling it up!
Another thing i did was I counted how many months he has left, and started with lets say todays month- and I made a box, all equal sizes, for everymonth he'll be in, and i labeled each box at the top, May 2010, June 2010, July 2010, Aug 2010, and go on all the way til his release- and i wrote instructions for him to at the end of the month, write something memorable from the month and send it to me- its kind of like a time line of our relationship while he's in, in a positive way- Sometimes he waits til the end of the month to send it, othertimes he'll write something half way through the month because he says (nothing could top that this month), it could be anything from a good visit to growth in a relationship, transfers, no charge months, anything! his first one was "this month i got Love Stamps" hahaha....cute little things like that

We also play hangman. He is really good at it so i have to stump him. this time around its a bit harder, im using the word "Asian Pear Mojito" which is a coctail at PF Changs. Lets just say he didn't get it in the first two rounds like he got the phrases "Black and White" and "Sweet Innocent Love"

I take dictionary phrases and send them to him, like adore, love, admire, kiss
adore |əˈdôr|
verb [ trans. ]
love and respect (someone) deeply : he adored his mother. See note at revere .
• worship; venerate : he adored the Sacred Host.
• informal like (something or someone) very much : she adores Mexican cuisine | [as adj. ] ( adoring) blowing a farewell kiss to an adoring crow

and then i write out why i adore him, or why i love him or whatever the word may be, i relate it to him and I.

We made a bucket list of all the things we want to do from his release to years down the road- just little things that we feel we are either missing out on or things we really want to do- and we pass that back and forth.

He really likes to draw so i send him things to trace, like a 4 leaf clover, and he'll send it back alll pretty and colorful for me.

Just a few ideas of things i do, im constantly thinking of new ones. Hope you guys like these

I'm thinking of making some custom postage stamps on Zazzle, especially for Mag's birthday card. It'll be cute.

These are some of the things I use to do for some of my pen-pals: Make a watermark out of a picture of me on the computer. I would then use that to write my letters so he could see me as he read my letter. I would take pictures, make a collage of them and make a copy of them on my printer. I would then write captions (since it is on paper I could write on it without ruining the pic and didnt have to worry about pic limits I could send) about what is going on in the picture. I did ones of when I was caught doing something funny or silly, here is me getting my hair permed etc. I was big on doing what I called baby care packages. I would find out my pal was in the hole or lockdown so I would get a big envelope and fill it with crosswords, jokes, funnies, articles, pic collages and questionairres. I would try to theme it. I write poetry so I would write one just for them.

Default Mail ideas that anyone can do!

I write my boyfriend everyday. Sometimes i think he gets fed up with me and my long letter lol . So i recently decided to make things a little more fun and interesting for him. maybe you might find these ideas helpful and useful.

1. He loves this one particular picture of us staring into each other's eyes, and smiling. So, I printed out a FULL PAGE copy and cut it into different shapes, sizes, and made a personalized puzzle. I included a note for him to put it together,and also did the same with a picture that I have edited and it looks different. Hopefully it keeps him occupied and his mind off of things.

2. There is a website named imikimi. (Go to Yahoo or google and type Imikimi, and its the first link) I love itttt. You can upload your own pictures and edit them whichever way you please. For example, I made one it has a pink background and 5 bubbles floating. In each bubble is a different picture of us from Prom. I even included his favorite quote from "The Notebook." (He is a very mushy guy ) and I sent it to him. You just have to create an account and it's FREE

3. With a different picture that I edited with imikimi, I printed it out. and on the same paper (front and back) I wrote little quotes from movies, books, and little things that we say to each other. I also made sure to include qutoes from his favorite movies like "The Notebook", "A Walk To Remember" "P.S I Love You", ect. Each quote was written in a different color pen.

4. I love writing. So after each letter that I got from him had a poem. I began writing some for him myself. His made me cry. I also drew my own personal backgrounds to go with my poems. He likes more personal touches than the computer stuff.

5. He loved smeeling me. I always use both "Moonlight Path" from Bath and Body Works, and "Very Irresistable" by Givenchy. So I sometimes spray my letters with both. I try not to overdue it because of the other inmates. But it makes him feel like Im there with him and he is not alone.

I hope you guys enjoy this and find it useful. If you have any more ideas please feel free to drop by. I could really use some more
