Friends send postcards as a random act of kindness

When you’re away from Mum and Dad, or your boyfriend, girlfriend or best friend, you could be tempted to text or Facebook message them. But why not send a postcard instead? It’s one of those little gestures – those random acts of kindness – that means a little more that just a text on cyberspace.

Send a postcard to say…

  • ‘Remember that time when we wore the same outfit.’ Send a postcard to remind your friend of when you wore the same thingEveryone’s done it. Remind them by sending a silly personalised postcard, with a message on the back that comments on how snappy you both looked.
  • ‘Wish you were here.’
    With a photo of something right in front of you that reminded you of them.

Here’s a tip: Postcards are also a great way to print and keep your favourite photos.

  • ‘Thank you for being you’
    You may not see them all the time, but a postcard can be that little surprise that brightens up their day for no reason at all. Or, thank you for the Easter eggs they sent over the weekend. If this is the case, then feel free to use the promo code THANKS20 for 20% off of your Easter thank you cards. (Expires April 27, 2017.)
  • ‘Remember me?’Send a postcard to show your adventures.Get back in touch with an old friend via a postcard to say you’re in town.
  • ‘I love you!’
    Send a love letter in the form of a postcard, or send a photo of where you are with a message that says no matter where I am in the world, I’m still thinking of you‘. ??  ??

I tend to get so excited that I’ve sent a Postsnap postcard to my parents, that I promptly email them to tell them that I’ve sent a postcard. If it’s that fun to create and send postcards, then it’ll feel even better to receive one.

Mum and daughter photo sent for mother's day

Mum and daughter photo sent for mother's dayIf you’re overseas, travelling, or on the go and can’t meet up with Mum on Mother’s Day (Sunday, 26 March), these gifts are quick, light and convenient ways of spoiling her while you’re away.

  • Afternoon tea for two
    Buy a voucher for Mum (plus one) to go for a special afternoon out to a classy tea room for scones and cakes. It won’t take much time to buy, and it would be a lovely, relaxing afternoon. Vouchers tend to be available online, and can be emailed – so no hassle there! ??  ?
  • An adventure!Buy mum a hot air balloon ride for mother's day
    A booking or a voucher for an adrenaline-fuelled tandem skydive or paraglide. For the more mellow adventures, perhaps a relaxing hot air balloon ride over the countryside. ?
  • Delivery for a super Mum
    Buy online with delivery to Mum’s doorstep. Perhaps flowers?  or a dress you know your mum would love. Alternatively, there are some great hamper delivery sites. You’ll find a great range online, from cheese, crackers and wine hampers, to chocolates, tea and biscuit hampers.
  • Dinner and a show
    Book a reservation for two, and buy theatre or movie tickets for Mum plus one. Now she has a great night out, already organised for her!
  • Buy mum a cocktail making course for mother's dayAn educational experience
    Candle-making, baking or a cocktail master class?, there are loads of social and fun classes to take. They tend to be held at local schools or community halls during the evenings. Mum could take a friend along and have a laugh, even gaining a certificate at the end of the class. (A little something extra to put on the CV.)

Top Tip: Don’t forget to check the time difference before ringing home on Mother’s Day!
