Advent Happy Mail

advent happy mail

Here’s an exciting advent idea for you!  Every day in advent, send a letter.  In this digital era, lets take this advent to get back to writing and encouraging others through it.  Just download your advent happy mail poster below, and everyday cross off one person from it.  You could even change some of the squares and put your own ideas if you want.

what is happy mail?

Happy mail is something that you receive in an envelope that makes someone else happy!  It is not a bill, statement or junk mail leaflet, but a thoughtful item of mail.  It is something you’ve put a bit of thought into and done to make the recipient smile.  The mail doesn’t have to be a parcel, it can just be a well meaning letter, or lots of other things too.   It could be an extra special Christmas card with an envelope you’ve decorated to make them smile!  There really are no rules or limits.

To give you some ideas and inspiration, here are some useful links:


I will be sharing over on my facebook page and instagram account some of the happy mail items that I am sending out, so do check it out for inspiration. I would love to see what you send too, so share your photos using #adventhappymail

      Yes that is the only draw back. You could always do it for those people that are easy to hand deliver things too or just include extra in your normal Christmas cards x

    What a wonderful idea, Rachel! I rarely send mail through the post these days, but it’s such a lovely thought. I might not make every day in Advent (I know I’ll struggle to do that and don’t want to set myself up to fail), I will try and send some proper Happy Mail over the coming weeks 🙂

    Thanks for joining in with #sharethejoylinky again xx
