There are so many ways to personalize your Box of Sunshine for a special recipient!

Know someone who could use a little extra encouragement?

Consider gifting a Box of Sunshine to cheer them up! ☀ I’ve even designed a FREE printable card in a couple of sizes that you can include with your gift. Simply put together a fun grouping of yellow or brightly colored goodies and surprise a friend, family member, neighbor, or teacher – anyone you’d like to spread joy and kindness to. 😀

The best part? You can budget for your small gifts and completely customize your Box of Sunshine for your recipient. I spotted a ton of cute “yellow” themed goodies at Dollar Tree and Walmart to fill my box within my budget!

You can definitely check out your favorite stores like the Target One Spot, Big Lots, and TJ Maxx for some fun finds as well. 


Once you have everything gathered, print your card and decorate your box with yellow tissue paper and any tape, stickers, and craft supplies on hand. I re-purposed a box by covering it with yellow construction paper on the inside first.

What type of items should I include in my Box of Sunshine?

Here are some fun ideas:

I’m so excited to give this gift to a friend who could use a little pick-me-up!

What a sweet and thoughtful sentiment. I love that anyone can make this simple idea! Enjoy. 😀

    Thank you, Lina!!! What fun items!
    I love to do things like this for my friends or family! It really means so much to them that you’ve been thinking about them. I just wish I could spot those adult stickers at the Dollar Tree! 🤣🤣🤣

    • Patti

      Love this idea! My teacher coworkers would like this, especially towards the end of school when things get hectic! Thank you!

      • Lina D

        Yes so fun and nice of you 🌞

    • Lina D

      Yes those stickers are the best!

    Thank you. However, the pictures in the emails are getting larger and larger. Is there a way to get them to a ‘standard’ size? This email is one where the pictures show up pretty large.

    • Lina D

      Oh odd. are you on a desktop computer or mobile? I’m not aware but will ask about this – thanks 👍

      • susan

        Yes, i have the same problem. Ever since that one update. I am looking in app on my cell phone. The pictures are HUGE!!!

    • *Angela-Miles*

      I agree, the pictures in the emails are way bigger then they use to be. Have to scroll to the right to see them all.

      • Lina D

        Bummer! If anyone is having issues we’d love to see a screenshot. Email to Lina@hip2save or Collin@hip2save, so we can fix it ASAP. Thanks

    This is such a thoughtful idea. Nothing better than to put a little bit of love and kindness, into what is a very broken world. Thank you for the card and the idea!

    • Lina D

      Thanks – I agree! ☀️

    My 9-year-old daughter’s real name is Sunshine (yes, really!) and we do this for end-of-year gifts for teachers. We put a note in the basket saying, “Sunshine wants to share her Sunshine with you!” We also include some Little Miss Sunshine books and everything is YELLOW!

    • Lina D

      That is the cutest idea ever! How darling and what a wonderful name 💛

  10. Jen

    I love sending packages and this is seriously amazing. What a great themed idea!

    • Lina D

      Thanks Jen!

  11. Mrs.W

    • Lina D

      I like it too! You’re welcome 😉

  12. Diana

    I always get the photo boxes at michaels for about $1.50 and stuff them w goodies. Everyone loves them! 🙂

    • Lina D

      Great idea! Thanks for sharing

  13. berrylandnow

    What a nice idea!

  14. *Angela-Miles*

    I do this with my sister every few months. I grab a gift bag or basket from the dollar tree and fill it with whatever I’ve picked up the past two months. When I’m out somewhere I’ll see something she likes and grab it. Then the next time I see her, I hand it to her and say here’s some things I picked up for you. She looks at me like I’m nuts at times Lol….but I know she likes the random odds an ends I give her 😉

  15. LC

    I love this idea. Thanks !

  16. Jeannine

    • Lina D
