Trade Picking Up Presents for Posting Cards

Hands up and shades on for all of the trips: solo backpacking travel, partner getaway, family vacation, friend escape (and the list goes on). Whether you’re hitting sun and sand or heading for a culture shock, it’s hard to share your full experience with all of the people that you left behind. While you post and picture on the regular; friends, followers and fans only get to see a snapshot of your time on the road. This is one reason for feeling like you need to purchase a present during your time away for your besties and buds.

Reality check: you don’t have the space or the dollars to bring something back for every member of the family.

Solution: Trade a present for a post card (as in with a stamp).

Easy, efficient and thoughtful, sending a post card is the perfect way to share a travel story (no ‘gram required). A throwback to the days of snail mail and pen + paper, it’s all about surprising the person on the other end. Collect a handful of cards along the way, write a personalized note and get your stamp on. In addition to putting a smile on a face (or two), making the change will provide you the opportunity to reflect on your trip in a new way.

Tip: before getting into road trip or jet set mode, make a list of the people that you want to send a post card to and add their current home address. To stay organized, check out the stylish and functional address books offered by Rifle Paper Co. for the win!
