Millie’s Mailbox was created when I could not find a simple and fun letter service for my own two children. As a mum of two, I often got asked the question “Why don’t I get any mail?” There was never any letters for the little ones.
So, I began sending my own children letters, gifts and activities and saw how excited they became when they received their very own mail in the letter box. I then branched out to send personalised mail to the children of my friends. Then I decided I would love to share the fun and learning with even more kids, and so Millie’s Mailbox was born.
When I was younger I loved having a pen-pal. In this day and age, with so much technology, it is a lovely unique experience to receive a letter via good old fashioned snail mail. Even as adults we love getting our online orders in the mail! I am aiming to provide some fun and learning into good old fashioned snail mail.
So, initially Millie’s Mailbox started out as a pen pal style service that mails letters addressed to your child each month with some fun gifts and personalised activities. I loved bringing joy to the kids. But I found they had more fun writing to each other, so now I provide some fun and some beautiful writing paper designs that you can download at home onto A4. I have branched out to the big kids too. I have designs for kids and designs for adults, basically there is something for everyone.
I’m hoping to start a writing revolution!
Primarily I am a Mum, chocoholic, school board member, lover of cats and a qualified Accountant by ‘trade’ (don’t hold it against me) and this is now my new fun business journey. Bringing a little happiness into the lives of everyone via a writing revolution.
