Ever had a friend, family member or co-worker who needed a little pick me up? Someone going through a rough patch that just needs a reminder that they’re loved, appreciated or plain ol’ supah dupah?
One of my very favorite things is to make someone’s day (or at least make them smile) with a thoughtful little something. Quote cards are my fave (more on that another time). Some occasions, it turns out, call for a bit more of a showing…
Enter the BOX OF SUNSHINE! (It’s crazy how good putting this together makes YOU, the giver, feel.)
First comes the shopping. Think all things cheery, uplifting and YELLOW. Notecards, sunglasses, snacks, gum, coffee, socks, toiletries, bubbly drinks, candy, individual sized BOXED WINE…
Then I had the hubs spray paint a Priority Mail box gold. Everything’s better with gold, ya?
Now’s where you go your own way, folks… I went digital and cut out letters to glue on the box flaps. I also cut some sunshine shapes and a quick sunshine card.
This occasion called for an all-hands-on-deck approach at work, so several ladies contributed.
The result was a box so full of happiness and love that it could barely be contained! And neither could the tears of the recipient, ps.
BTdubs – I’ve found that this particular gift is best served with a stirring rendition of “You Are My Sunshine”. Just sayin.
