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!
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:
- sunglasses, sunglasses case
- sunscreen or lotions
- Burt’s Bees products
- fun tumbler for drinks (the pineapple tumbler pictured is available in-store at Walmart)
- vitamin C face masks
- journals, pens, stickers (Adult novelty stickers pictured, available at Dollar Tree)
- brightly colored dish towels
- yellow flower seed packets
- yellow scented candles
- lip gloss, cosmetics
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. 😀
