Are these just all the things I wish someone would give me?
  1. Letters in the mail
    The Rumpus has a subscription service where you get a new letter each month from a published, well-regarded author(Roxane Gay, Elisa Albert, Anthony Doerr, etc.). You can also order past letters individually, which is what I'm doing and sending with one of the author's books. They also have an option for kids. I hope to see @bjnovak 's letter this year. One of my son's all time faves is The Book With No Pictures. He'd freak.
  2. FroliCat
  3. Homemade Poo Pourri.
