My hubby LOVES their Shells & White Cheddar, so I sent him several boxes of this on his mission. (The picture shows a family-size, but individual-serving boxes are smaller and lighter.)
It occurred to me recently that Annie’s products are perfect for Easter packages — Bernie shows up on nearly all of their awesome organic treats.
Check out an independent user-rating on blogger Creative Carissa’s site — complete with Bunny Tail decoration the pasta boxes have become so famous for!
When my husband was in Brazil, I sent him an Easter package with plastic eggs, candy and little notes. While this is a classic for missionary packages, I recently came across a fresh take on the idea and thought I’d share it. It’s similar to the 12 Days of Christmas: each day, your missionary will get to open a plastic egg containing a scripture and an object. The messages tell, chronologically, of the events of the crucifixion and resurrection.
A simple list of both scriptures and objects can be found at the blog: An Ordinary Mom.
This is a great idea–clever, spiritual, thought-provoking…not to mention inexpensive and easy to ship!
The image comes from the blog: Julie K. (She has great ideas about recycling plastic eggs after Easter.)
My cousin has a beautiful singing voice, so while she was on her mission, we sent her several arrangements to sing as musical numbers in her ward. One of my favorites is Tom Fettke’s “Beautiful Savior.” You can purchase a copy of the sheet music here.
The music is drafted as a choral piece, but in my family we’ve used it as a solo or duet piece several times. I know it works comfortably in a woman’s range, but I’m not sure about a man’s range.

Additional Tips: see if you can find a plastic jar (like a peanut butter jar) so that the end result weighs less. This will be beneficial for those of you who are shipping overseas.
Sometimes I don’t know how people come up with things — but I’m glad they do. Check out this idea: A card you can plant! There are shamrock seeds embedded in the paper of the card. What a creative little gift for St. Patrick’s Day.
