I’ve been Pen paling (yeah the snail mail way) since summer of 1994. I do still write to a couple of my original pals, as well as have some new ones. This year I thought of the idea of making a pen pal kit for a couple of mine. It’s a thoughtful gift, the box gives them something to lean on as well as store their paling supplies in, if they do not have a desk. Plus You can also (if you’d like) personalize the top of the box with a monogram, re-paint it or even use a nice tack paper on it especially if like me you use the good Cigar boxes. Sometimes you don’t even need to as some are nice enough looking.
Whatever your decision make sure you personalize it with some things they like as well as the sort of stationery they normally use (like Notecards, a writing tablet, or printer paper.) Include a pen, some stickers, and other assorted items.
Take a look at what I’ve included in mine.for my Pal Alisa (it was her 2016 holiday gift)
