Is it ok to mail a thin magnet along with a card in the regular mail? Do I have to do anything special to it?

I realize this is quite possibly a Very Stupid Question, but no one in my dept at work can answer me, and I tried googling it but I kept getting pages upon pages about some sort of "email magnet". So...please try not to yell at me if this is as stupid a question as I think it might be.
Basically, I made some cute calendars on card stock that I want to slip into those thin magnetic picture frames and mail to a few family members along with a Happy New Year card.
I guess I'm just concerned that there might be some issue with mailing it ... like the entire envelope sticking to the inside of the mailbox or sticking to someone else's mail or breaking the mail machines. I'm not smart or knowledgeable enough to know whether these concerns are totally stupid, or somewhat plausible.
I do know that people do from time to time mail magnets, I just can't remember if they do anything, like wrap them in tinfoil or whatever, before sending them.
What do you think?
