Surprise with a potato!

Why write an email or letter to someone when you can send a message through a potato? Potato Parcel is a company that specializes in printing your custom messages on a potato and sending it to your loved ones for a fee. Can’t think of an inspirational message special enough to inscribe on a potato? No problem! The company’s website provides message ideas to borrow. Interestingly, the person who receives the potato parcel will not have a clue who sent it, so that can only add to the dumbfounded surprise!
