What do you ask your friends and family to mail you?

Oh, we all have them. You know, those things we just cannot live without! For me, it’s coffee, gluten-free flour, childrens’ books, Real Simple magazine and Burt’s Bees chap stick. Those are my go-to requests when family or friends want to know what they can send to us via the postal service.

You can imagine my delight when I received a super sweet package from friends last week. Honestly, it’s so much fun to receive, isn’t it? It’s nice to know others are thinking of you, and that your lips will elude chapping just a little bit longer!

I’m curious what others miss? I have some friends who are moving to Istanbul soon and I was thinking about what I should tell them to bring that they might not find so easily here. What would you recommend?
