You know what some of my most treasured possessions are? Letters. Handwritten, stamped envelopes, coffee stains, and fingerprints. These are the things I go back to when I’m looking at pieces of my life and my past and thinking about who I am and where I am going. These letters and cards and notes are tangible pieces of the person I used to be and I cherish them in way that shopping expeditions can never touch. I would rank a handwritten card as the number one “Perfect Gift” for this season. But let’s talk logistics.
