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. 😀

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
