I have a friend. A lot has been going on in her life lately and I wanted her to know I was thinking of her. So I gave her a box of sunshine. I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a try. Who doesn't want a little sunshine in their lives?
Get a box. This one is from Banana Republic. I like that the lid is attached to the box.
Add yellow paper shreds.
Then fill it with orange and yellow treats. Orange Passion and Mango soda from World Market.
Bath and Body Works Kitchen Lemon foaming soap.
Cutie Fruity bath confetti (World Market).
Choward's Lemon Mints.
Lemon Cream Filled Wafers. Yum.
Bur'ts Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
Star-shaped post it notes in yellow and orange.
Juicy Fruit and Knusperflakes (chocolate with corn flakes).
And finally, a yellow pinwheel (Hobby Lobby). You can also add these cookies. They would work beautifully for this gift.
Oh, and lemon heads! I poured the entire box into a clear bag and tied it with a cute bow. I packed it all in my Banana Republic box.
The yellow strip at the bottom is to cover the Banana Republic logo. Then I decorated it with happy flowers and tied it with a bright yellow bow. If you are interested in how I tied the bow, look no further. Just click here. You can tailor this gift to any color. Red for Valentines day, pastel for Easter, or focus on your giftee's favorite color. You get the idea. The possibilities are endless. Surprise someone you love with a box of sunshine.friends gift summer 1 Comment
