.a little box of sunshine.

My baby sister is having her first baby any day now.  I know how icky that last week or two of pregnancy can be - you feel big and tired and uncomfortable and just want to get the baby out, but at the same time are not quite sure that you are actually ready for a baby just yet!  
So as a little "pick-me-up" to send my happy, positive labour vibes, I posted her a Little Box of Sunshine in the mail...
The idea behind it came from some pins on Pinterest (of course).  There is a heap of awesome inspiration for gifts "in a box" - some of them on my Gifts board.


Here's what I included:
Some yellow art prints from Leanne
Herbal tea, gum and lip gloss
Flake and Chomp bars, yellow nail polish, lolly pop
Yellow m&ms, lollies
Post-it notes, sunny earrings
Lolly bananas
Sunshine framed print
And here it is, all packaged up - ready for express posting:
A box fully of sunny goodness to brighten up her day and give her something to munch while the waiting game begins- and I reckon she should paint her toe nails bright yellow ready for the big day :)
So excited to meet my beautiful little niece!  I know she will be a perfect little ray of sunshine in Fil and Chris' family.
 
P.S. Got other "gift in a box" ideas?  Share them here - I love the concept!

That is such a beautiful idea, I'm sure a little box of sunshine (or rainbows) would go a long way to brighten anyone's day. It reminds me of one of my favourite presents ever when my big brother gave my sister and I each a box full of little toys, pens, stickers, ribbons... It was like a whole box of lucky dips, but I'm loving this grown up version.

I loved this idea. It's super cute and I love that the 'yellow' theme means you have to be creative with it. I made one for a friend who was recently going through a difficult patch and she LOVED it.
