What can you put inside open when letters? That’s a question we’ve received from many readers! While there are lots of inspirational open when letters online that you can draw inspiration from and tons of open when topics for your letters to choose from it’s still hard to figure out what to actually put inside your letters when the time comes for YOU to make them.

So what can you put inside open when letters? How can you make each letter special and unique for the person who’ll be receiving them? With the month of love only a few days away, we thought it’d be a great idea to introduce our list of things to put inside open when letters!

whattoputinsideopenwhenletters1. Open When.. You Miss Me

A Mailable hug is great when you can’t be there to hug someone physically.
A Collection of Photos is perfect when someone is missing your sweet face.
♥ Send your scent with a spritz of perfume or even better – long lasting scented paper!

2. Open When.. You’re Mad At Me

Send a kiss on paper! A classic move when you can’t get a real smooch in!
♥ Send an all encompassing declaration of apology that will cover all you could possibly have done wrong.
♥ You can’t send them a full bouquet but you CAN send them a single dried & pressed rose. Trust us, this’ll soften them up for sure.

3. Open When.. You’re Stressed

♥ Bubble wrap to pop for some instant stress relief!
♥ Encouraging photos or inside jokes to get them laughing or smiling!
♥ A motivational letter. Let them know why they rock and why there’s no reason to stress!

4. Open When.. You’re Bored

Printable Puzzles are a great bet for anyone who’s bored. You can take them anywhere and still have a lot of fun.
♥ Retell the story of how you and that special person first met from your point of view.
♥ A list of songs, or even a mix CD is a great addition to this open when envelope.

We hope these ideas will help you to get started on your own open when letters and open up inspiration for more!

If you do “open when your sick” here are a few ideas:
-tea bags
-cough drops
-a get well card
“open when you can’t sleep”
-tiny cut out sheep (to count)
-a list of lullabies
“open when you are nervous”
-a pack of gum
-a list of breathing exercises
-a “YOU GOT THIS” kind of note

Hope this helped 😉

Distance becomes too much …
Feeling lost…
Need a reminder of my love …
You need a hug …
Youre thinking about the future….
Thinking about us…
In the mood (; ….

Can you do open when you need to know how much i love you and when you feel like were drifting apart

Emily Hebert August 19, 2015 - 12:01 pm

you should do tickets to movie or gift card for movies, dinner, weekend away voucher, or look on a website for cute fun things to do together, picnic, scavenger hunt, or a picture/memory of one of the best days/
