Put a Surprise in a Mailbox

It could be anything from treats to a gift certificate to a kind note that says, “Keep being awesome!”

Getting mail other than bills is a massive pick-me-up. Hide something special in a neighbor or stranger’s mailbox. It doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming: as long as it makes someone smile, you’ve done good.

I love this! I used to do this with my little brother when we would walk to and from town. We would leave flowers in mailboxes and on car windscreens. Its funny how you forget lovely little things like this when you get older. I will do this with my wee boy next time we are out walking xx
