Say hello the old-fashioned way.
It doesn't take much effort to craft together a brief note. A few details on scrap paper or a postcard outlining your latest and most exciting (or even not so exciting) news is enough to give someone a big smile for a while. Don't get too stressed about it.
Besides Canada Post offices and Shopper's Drugmart, stamps can be purchased online and can be printed at home, so there are no excuses. Send your affection with a letter, even if it's only a few words. Ideal recipients may include, but are not limited to, grandparents, long-lost friends, or someone you admire from afar.
