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.

Nicole Elizabeth has taken the incomparable sincerity of old fashioned card sending and transformed it into a medium that works in this fast-paced, technological world we live in. Visit Sent-Well.com, choose your favorite card, type in your personal message and the recipient’s address, and Bam! Your card will be sent for you, all without leaving the comfort of your keyboard. There is even a calendar set up that sends you email notifications when loved ones’ big days are coming up, so you never have to send a belated explanation again! It is the ease of an e-card with the personalization and tangibility of a real card. (And the designs are fantastic. No more last-minute drugstore greeting card fiascos!)  If you are so inclined, you can even include a gorgeous necklace or a seed packet in your card. Perfection. Your words, great design, Sent-Well.

    Time travel!  But then, I’m a historian, so its sort of a no-brainer~*

    as a grammie I’m starting to think the ideal power would be to never get tired. a well spring of energy would be a very handy thing to have!

    flying would of course be very cool

    Jessica says:

    20-20 vision in foresight. We all know that hindsight is 20-20, but I’d prefer to make the right decision the first time rather than looking back and understanding what the right decision was.

    Juliet Farmer says:

    the ability not to need sleep. but i’d still want to be able to sleep from time to time. hey–a girl can dream 😉

    Trisha says:

    If I could have one superpower it would be the ability to animate inanimate objects. It would be handy, and a great party trick!

    Gali says:

    I would love to be able to learn everything I want and not forget anything I don’t want to forget but being able to forget things I do want to forget. And of course, I’d want to be able to do that without going mad. I’m not quite sure if that’s a superpower or not but it would definitely be a rather cool thing.

    Natalie says:

    I would love to be able to read minds. 
    I often think that I can, and I am way off.
    Then again, maybe I don’t want to know what people are thinking.

    Tiffany says:

    I would be able to explain myself perfectly every time. I am horrible at communicating the knowledge that is in my head. I just fumble all of the time! So my super power would be to have it all come out so that the person I’m trying to communicate with would just get it, cuz I’m THAT good at explaining it.

    Courtney J says:

    To time travel…Just so I could observe events from history. I wouldn’t care about messing with the space-time continuum.

    Nikki says:

    As a child I could never decide between being able to fly like a bird or swim like a fish and breath underwater. As a teenager I wanted to be able to know what other people were thinking–as an adult I definitely do not want this power!  Now I actually wish that I had the ability to teleport! Fascinating!!

    Noma says:

    The ability to control the economy :p

    Lindsay says:

    I wish I could teleport – my family are split up all over the world and sometimes all I want is to have a glass of wine with my Mum or a coffee with my sister. Plane tickets are a lot cheaper than they used to be but to be able to avoid all of the customs hullabaloo and dry and smelly airplanes would be heaven!

    Christina P says:

    20/20 foresight. that sounds perfect. even if its something i figure out just a few hours before a big decision would be really helpful!

    Chryselle says:

    I’d make people smile more. In India, the toll of merely survival is so great that it hangs like a shroud over us. There are smiling faces, of course, but the joy that comes with celebrating life, a good life, is not there. I want to make people rejoice in the little things – delight in the trees and the colour of the land, gawk the traditional architecture with awe and be thankful that tigers choose our country to live. A smile crusader, that would be me 🙂

    Sydney says:

    To speak every language and be able to communicate regardless of country 🙂

    Definitely to swim underwater…who wouldn’t want to be the Little Mermaid?

    echo says:

    To be really productive all of the time doing good things for myself and others, without getting tired or unhealthy. Could really use that! If that isn’t a classic enough superpower… I would also be able to fly!

    Jennifer says:

    unlimited patience!

    If you’ve seen the movie “Limitless” I would want to have the main character’s powers when he takes the pill, just without the drugs and problems associated with it 🙂

    Cathy F says:

    I would like to have the power to make friends easily, be able to engage people at a party, to be confident and not nervous around people.

    Sara says:

    To heal people emotionally, physically, spiritually … Not to be God, but just to be a balm to the bruises of life.

    Emma L says:

    To stop global warming. It is probably an unusual super power but such an important one – – I wouldn’t even mind wearing a peagreen cape with the earth embroidered on it!

    Emily B says:

    I seem to know a lot of people who are struggling with personal sadness and family tragedies. If I had one super power, it would be to heal sadness and hurt and replace it with peace and joy.

    Mimi says:

    World peace and life healing would be wonderful – but in reality, I would just like to be in a position of making sure my family had enough not to have to struggle to survive each day.  Basically,  enough money to be comfortable. Selfish, but honest.

    Madeline says:

    super hilarious girl! i would love to be able to always make people laugh. i see so many people having a rough day and sometimes if they could just laugh & relieve the tension for a minute they’d be better able to handle the crisis at hand.

    power to make people smile…smiles truly are contagious, what a better place this world would be if someones smile made another person a little happier

    kim g says:

    To wiggle my nose like Bewitched used to do,….and magically the house is cleaned up, kids aren’t fighting ..homework is done. laundry put away… dinner made…cats aren’t chasing the guinea pig…(the cats and the guinea pig chase one another and play all day) ahhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Erin says:

    The ability to never get tired! I am a person who needs lots of sleep, and sometimes I feel like I miss out on some cool moments because I’m sleepy….also, when you have to sleep (or even if you don’t, if we’re REALLY being honest), there simply is not enough time in a day – or a lifetime, for that matter – for one to do EVERY thing one wants to do…but I could come a lot closer if I never had to sleep! 🙂

    Elizabeth says:

    The ability to communicate clearly!!!  I have spent so much of my life not communicating what I mean to, not being able to understand other people.  I teach composition, so I see it every day, students who have the most beautiful, brilliant things to say that don’t quite translate into words.  My ability would be having words that did translate!  Saying what I meant!  Meaning what I say!

    I always tell my kids I would love to be able to teleport , so much time saved in travel and without the risks of time travel where you might find out things better not to know.
