Congrats Flat Card

God Only Knows Flat Card

I’m loving the neon this month! The coordinated envelope with the Congrats card is awesome, too!


Thank You Very Very Very Much Folded Card

You’re Kind of a Big Dill Flat Card

YES to puns! I think I’m going to send this Big Dill card to my mom – she’ll think I’m a dork but like it! (And blank thank you cards are always a good inclusion in this box for me).


Sherbet Folded Card

Flowers Flat Card

On the inside of the Sherbet card, “It’s Sherbet Day! Gonna Party Like It’s Sherbet Day!” I did not know about this meme, but now I get it:


On the back of the Flowers card, “Just because.”


Days of the Week Notepad

Expecting Flat Card

I had no idea this was a pregnancy congrats card until I turned it over! It’s a cute idea! On the back it says, “Excited to watch your family grow. CONGRATS!”


Cinnamon Roll Folded Card

On the inside it says. “You’re On A Roll!” It wasn’t properly captured in the picture, but this card also has gold foil accents!


Travel Postcard

Mix Tape Stickers

This postcard is blank on the other side, and the stickers say things like, “All the feels,” and “Girl Gang.”


Remember to Yes Please Your Life Print

This seems like a direct reference to Yes Please by Amy Poehler, (a book I really liked), so it’s a win!


Verdict: I like this subscription every month! I paid $15 for this shipment (I committed to an annual subscription up front), and I think the value is great – just a little over $1 an item for completely original works! I usually complain that they include too many significant other cards in these boxes, but this month I was actually expecting quite a few to get before Valentine’s Day. Maybe they’ll cover that in the February boxes if they arrive before the 14th!

What do you think of the January Happy Mail box?

  1. Wonderful cards this month, as usual. I honestly thought I’d never buy a card in the store again with this subscription but I’m still buying birthday cards as there aren’t nearly enough. This month there was 1 birthday card.
    There are plenty of ‘You go!’ and ‘You’re great’ types of cards but I very rarely send these so they’re piling up unused.

    • I concur, they need to send one or two birthday cards every shipment. And it IS weird that there were no Valentines Day cards considering this shipment is usually not shipped until mid month for me.

      • I’ve been subscribing for ten months and they never really send holiday cards. Most months there are several romantic cards, though.

        I liked this month’s delivery a lot. Just a couple of items will go up for swap.
