I’ve loved the idea of giving someone a ‘little box of sunshine’ as a gift for so long. The ones that I’ve seen other people create have mostly been care packages for people who are poorly. I decided to do one for one of my best friends birthdays this week.

She has recently lost someone very close to her and this is her first birthday without them. I really wanted to make a present for her that would brighten up her day and remind her that a birthday can signal the bright start of a new chapter.

This box was quite easy to fill. My friend adores candles, is obsessed with nail polish and likes a good pamper session. But you can create so many different varieties of these boxes! Whether it’s for someone who is poorly, for a birthday, for a pick-me up, for a man or a woman. The picture below is the semi-final result. I also added a yellow wrapped chocolate bar to it as well. No pamper session would be complete without something sweet!!

I know that I would LOVE to receive one of these when i’m feeling blue. I really enjoyed making it. I don’t think the pictures do justice to how bright the box is in real life. You definitely need to consider wearing sunglasses.

What do you think of this box of sunshine? Would you make one or want to receive one?

    I love this! Great idea and gorgeous products. Did you order the chocolate bar with yellow wrapper online? I would love to make one of these. X
