Thanks to Instagram and Facebook, telling your friends "Happy Birthday" is way easy. But, is there anything that makes you feel more special on your birthday than getting a package in the mail? I say no.

So what if you could send some birthday mail and party with your BFF without even being there? Thanks to the San Francisco-based company Packed Party, you totally can.

All you have to do is choose the perfect package for your friend. Then, you can send them a one-time box of hand-selected goodies, and the thoughtfulness doesn't stop at birthdays--there are even packages for helping your friend through a breakup.

So what exactly comes inside these surprise party packs? Well, they're a surprise, so you'll just have to order one to find out (but you can expect everything from cards and snacks to confetti). Go check it out here and view the gallery to get a glimpse inside the Packed Party--just don't be surprised if you end up ordering one for yourself, too.
