  • 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:

  • When life gives you lemons …

  • Send them in the mail. Seriously. Write out the address on the peel and stamp appropriately. It's a cute way to send a reminder to your loved one to keep their head up in any situation.

  • Fiesta time!

  • Who wouldn't want to receive a sombrero instead of a letter? Deliver your darling a love note that also doubles as awesome party attire.

  • Let the good times roll

  • 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.

  • Ultimate love letter

  • Perfect for any ultimate frisbee fan, a love letter sent via frisbee is sure to please (or at least hint at a date in the park).

  • I love you like potatoes

  • 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.

  • Postman snuggles

  • 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.

  • Caution: cuteness ahead

  • 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.

  • Caution! Road work ahead. #crochet #amigurumi #orange #constructioncones #etsyseller #customorder

  • I'm "owl" by myself

  • 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.

  • Movie night?

  • Go old school and send a VHS tape (remember those?) in the mail to your beloved. Use a favorite movie from the good ol' days, or send a home video that's been hiding in the attic.

  • You're number one

  • Cheesy sports fans, rejoice; You can send a foam finger in the mail to show your honey how you really feel. Write out a message if you please, and send it on its way.

  • Beach day

  • 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.

  • Of course, don't underestimate the power of a traditional stamp-and-envelope love letter. But from time to time, some of these ideas will keep things creatively interesting.
