Love letters are timeless. I mean, there's a reason tiny scribbled notes of endearment are kept in boxes for years and years and usually make an appearance in any decent romance movie. However, sending a love letter in an envelope these days is a little predictable. Why not send your darling something a bit more unusual for some originality? See if any one of these 11 ideas tickles your fancy:

To drop a hint about that cherry pie you've been craving, send your forever valentine a rolling pin in the mail. But I'd stay away from the marble versions, unless you're looking to spend your pie money on postage.
That sentiment sure means a lot. From french fries to mashed, potatoes truly are a well-loved food. Show your better half how much you really care by sending an actual potato in the mail. They'll love it — though I don't recommend it be eaten later.
There are businesses you can use to send a pillow through the mail, or you can just DIY. Write out a postcard-like message and your love's address on one side and send it on its way. This idea is extra cute for those long distance relationships.
Though it's been done at least once before, sending a bright orange caution cone may depend on your post office's sense of humor. You'll also pay a pretty penny in postage, which makes the knit variety a cute option.
Ideal for any pun-loving babe, sending a plastic animal in the mail is the ideal way to tickle their funny bone. Send an owl for the pun above, or send a plastic whale for a "whale hello there!" message.
A postcard from the beach is nice, but sending a flip-flop is much quirkier. Try sending a surprise invitation to date night via flip-flop instead of a simple text message. I can promise it'll surprise your darling.
