I'm sending my grandma a box of sunshine. This idea has been burning up Pinterest lately and I think it's adorable. The concept is simple: fill a box with yellow things and include a tag saying that you're sending some sunshine.
I got my tag from HappyMoneySaver.com. (You can never be too sure with the internet, but the "box of sunshine" idea may have started here, too. I try to give credit where credit is due, but sometimes it's hard to find the original!)
My boys and I searched the aisles of Target to find yellow things and here's what we came up with:
- Kleenex box
- Travel size Kleenex
- Burt's Bees bar of soap
- Antibacterial hand soap
- Zone bar (chocolate peanut butter flavor)
- Sunflower seed packet
- Butterscotch disks candy
- Butterfinger candy bar
- Peanut M&M's (I know she likes almond better, but peanut had a yellow bag!)
- Splenda Flavors for Coffee
- Lemon scented wipes from the "Dollar Spot"
- Travel size Wet Ones
Then I made her a sunshine-yellow card and attached the fabric peony I made earlier. (See this post for the peony instructions.)
I packaged it all up in a box with some yellow tissue paper and paper-punched sunshines. How could you not be happy if you received this box in the mail?
Happy Mother's Day, Grandma. You are such an inspiration to me.
