Sunshine Gift Basket

A sunshine box is a fun gift to not only give, but to create. Go on a search for all things yellow and surprise someone special with a sunshine yellow gift basket!

You can give a sunshine gift basket as a ‘just because,’ ‘thank you,’ or a ‘birthday gift.”  Make tags to say “Hello Sunshine” or “Let me Brighten up your Day.”

Wooden Crate or gift basket: You can get one at any craft store.

Small snack sizes work well

Arranging the Gift Basket:

Line the box/basket with the dishtowel and arrange the items the best way you can. You want to make sure that every product is showing. It might take a little elbow grease and some innovative re-working but do what you got to do.

If you think of anything else, or just happen to be shopping and see something yellow, get it. For example, a yellow rubber duckie or yellow stuffed rabbit or bear is a nice addition for someone young or old. Another suggestion is a yellow gift card.

To add some “umph,” to this gift, get a gift card to somewhere that you know the individual will like.

If you give a gift card, you might want to include the receipt showing the balance in case there is a problem trying to redeem it. If you can’t find a yellow gift card, get one that is bright and sunny with some yellow in it. The idea behind this gift basket is cheery.

Always include a note. Put it on yellow notecards or stationery. Personalized notes always add a special touch to any gift basket.
