Small Gift Ideas
Of course we plan for birthdays and Christmas and Valentine’s Day, but what about all of the little moments in between?
Moments like thinking of you, missing you, and congratulations. These instances deserve love and attention too, even if it’s in a little package. In fact, with relationships becoming more long distance, a small and mail-friendly gift might be exactly what you need!
Find a gift for every occasion.
There are lots of big occasions that lend themselves to gift-giving, but that doesn’t mean the little ones aren’t just as important! Perhaps your daughter has been away at college for a few months and you miss her, or your significant other is living abroad right now—a little gift at these times can go a long way. Fortunately, our store is full of little gifts:
Small Wooden Cat Pile Game by Comma — Nicknamed “cat Jenga”, this adorable game comes with six wooden felines that you must stack as high as you can without toppling over. The game is as cute as a kitten and small enough to fit in an envelope. A fun addition to any pen pal letter!
More gifts for every occasion:
Frida Kahlo Kokeshi Doll by Sketch.inc — Inspired by the traditional Japanese toy, kokeshi dolls are intended as tokens of friendship. And at six inches tall, Frida makes the cutest sidekick to an artsy care package.
New York City Map Necklace by Talia Sari — this geometric, abstract pendant commemorates the isle of Manhattan in plated 24k gold on brass. What better way to remember the memories a beautiful place gave you and your companion than by gifting this stunning necklace. (Talia Sari makes pendants for other cities as well!)
‘Disappearing’ Constellation Mug by Unemployed Philosopher’s Guild — when in doubt about what small gift to get, you can never go wrong with a nice mug. The “disappearing” stars mug has hidden constellations that appear when a hot beverage is poured in it, so the surprise doesn’t end when you unwrap the gift.
Don't forget to complete your small gift!
The hard part’s over, so now it’s time to make your present perfect and ready to go. What else do you need? Here are some suggestions:
A gift card to your friend’s favorite cafe or restaurant. Small enough for an envelope and always incredibly useful!
Pencils, stickers, and keychains make a fun, little addition to envelopes and boxes alike.
If you’re not writing a letter, remember to include a gift note. A few words go a long way, and if you’re sending straight from our store, the note is free at checkout.
