My little has been having a tough time. I was having lunch with her today & decided I wanted to do something to try & cheer her up–so I made a Box Full of Sunshine!
Disclaimer: This is seriously the easiest, cutest, cheapest gift ever!
Step 1: Go to Dollar Tree
Step 2: Look for yellow
Step 3: Deliver
Seriously, that simple.
Even in our teeny dollar tree with a limited selection, I found much more yellow that I expected! I was definitely pleasantly surprised.
There was no rhyme or reason, just yellow! From snacks & silly putty to drinks & scrubbers.
I even lucked out & found a yellow [almost] empty box! I took the liberty of taking the few items remaining & placing them on the shelf to take the box off their hands. 🙂 Couldn’t pass up a yellow box for my box of sunshine!
Finally, I took an index card & made a label along with a sweet note.
& of course I HAD to get the smiley face balloon.
I almost bought a yellow tutu & yellow fair wings to wear but I figured that was probably a little much hahah BUT I did play “Pocket Full of Sunshine” by Natasha Bedingfield when I showed up to her apartment which I thought was very appropriate.
She loved it! This is just a simple gesture you can do to help brighten someone’s day. It cost me $13 but the reaction & appreciation was worth so much more than that.
