No one has ever received a handwritten letter thanking them for something, congratulating them, or wishing them happy birthday, and been sad about it. The more technologically dependent we get, the more impressive old-fashioned gestures become. Make someone's day with a thoughtful "just saying hello" letter—but make sure you're sending it out on a piece of paper with your portrait at the top, in an envelope with fancy hand-lettered script, and a stamp that has your initials on it. Go big or go home.
