Box of Sunshine diy gift idea

Know someone who could use a little extra encouragement?

Consider gifting a fun box of sunshine to cheer them up! ☀️ This DIY surprise gift box is easy to make and budget-friendly, too. We’ve even designed a cheerful FREE printable card in a couple of sizes that you can include with your gift.

If you have someone in your life that has experienced a recent loss, a box of sunshine could also be a thoughtful sympathy or bereavement gift to compile and personalize for them. Sometimes just knowing that someone is thinking of you can be of great comfort.

I actually once did this for a friend and dropped it off at her door, and she loved it so much. I could tell it meant a lot.

This box of sunshine project could not be easier and it is so fun to do!

Simply put together a fun grouping of yellow or brightly colored goodies and surprise a friend, family member, neighbor, or teacher – anyone you think needs some joy and kindness. 😀 These days a little extra kindness goes a long way. 💛

If you have a child in college this would be a fun idea to compile and send off to them! As far as the box goes, you could maybe repurpose one from a subscription box or decorate a shipping box.

The best part? You can budget for your small gifts and completely customize your DIY surprise gift box for your recipient. I spotted a ton of cute “yellow” themed goodies at Dollar Tree and Walmart to fill my box and keep it within my budget!

You can also check out your favorite stores like Target, Big Lots, and TJ Maxx for some fun finds as well.
