12 Gifts You Can Send To Your Friends You Desperately Miss Seeing

I’ve received a few random care packages and gifts during quarantine, and let me tell you, they are such a bright spot in my day. I miss my friends dearly, and while we’re loving being able to video chat, I can’t wait to hug them in person again. Until then, I’ve been doing my best to keep in touch via snail mail and dropping off small gifts on their porches. It’s just a really lovely way to let your friends know you’re thinking about them and how much they mean to you during this time. Here are a few ideas for gifts that you can have safely delivered to your best gals to let them know they’re on your mind and you can’t wait to hang out on the other side of this.
