Love -- Ready To Ship With 'In The Mailbox' Products

U.S. Postal Service Offers Easy Ways to Mail Some Love

WASHINGTON , Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "How do you package love?" The U.S. Postal Service has the answer by offering gift ideas that are in the box, with the "In the Mailbox" line of retail products. In the Mailbox gift ideas include Candy Hearts and Love Ribbon jewelry, and ready-to-mail plush animals like Mickey and Minnie Mouse and Winnie the Pooh.

Best of all, In the Mailbox means you've got that special gift "in the bag." Simply fold, add postage and send them off — no need to purchase additional boxes — making it simple and easy to package and mail your love.

Love-themed jewelry featuring the well-known Candy Hearts image first depicted on a 2004 postage stamp, includes bracelets, necklaces and two watch designs — all reasonably priced and sure to remind loved ones that someone cares. All pieces in the jewelry line also come in an additional design choice: the extremely popular Love Ribbons featured on the 2012 Love stamp.

"We want to make your expressions of love as easy as 'gift and go' so check out the In the Mailbox products while you're at the Post Office," said Kelly Sigmon, vice president, Channel Access. "When you choose the Love Ribbons or the Candy Hearts design of jewelry, you'll know both are perfect to show your love this Valentine's Day."

The Postal Service's In the Mailbox product line also features two additional plush bear designs — the festive Birthday bear and the adorable "I Love You" bear — both in boxes and ready to mail.

Choosing a gift at one of the In the Mailbox Holiday Gift Centers found exclusively at the Postal Service or at www.usps.com/shop is a great way to say "I love you." Loved ones everywhere will receive love in the mail and the sender gets the gift of time saved.
