Frugal Valentine Gift

This year, I made homemade valentines using magazine cutouts and cardstock I had on hand, unused postcards from trips taken together and printouts of valentine graphics on craft sites. So the cost of the card is free. I searched the net for saying "I love you" in several languages. I live in Maine and there are several towns such as China, Denmark, Vienna, New Sweden, Athens and so on.


For 88 cents per card, you can mail a card to the town's Postmaster and ask for a postmark. So it is 45 cents postage on the card you want to come back to you and 45 cents to send it all to the Postmaster. On each card envelope, I wrote I love you in the matching language. My husband loves travel and is getting a real kick out of this!

Don't forget Love, Saskatchewan, Canada! Postage is a bit more, but the teddy bear postmark would be worth it!
