Did you know that the US Post office will ship items other than boxes?  They do!  Did you know you can mail anything that will take a stamp and weighs less than 13ounces without a box? There's a small fee that goes along with this, but as long as it's less than 108" total (like the FAA for carry-ons - length+width+height) you're a go. It’s really fun to mail random items that are 13 ounces or less.  I’ve shipped flip flops (one each week), a t-shirt in a plastic tube, Easter Eggs filled with candy, and much more. 

Each Easter I send my grandparents huge plastic Eggs that are filled with a small serving of candy. 

About a week before Easter I buy the eggs, candy that will fit into the Eggs, print shipping labels, and use packing tape to secure the egg.

I always get a few chuckles when I show up at the Post Office with a basket full of Easter Eggs to ship.  Some people will just slap some stamps on the items and send the item on it’s way but I never seem to have stamps.

For more ideas of items you can ship through the mail check out the Giver’s Log.
