This box of sunshine with free printables is the perfect gift to send someone to brighten their day!
I think we all know someone in our lives who is going through a tough time. Someone who may have lost a loved one, someone who lost their job, someone who is going through a divorce, someone who is struggling with a child, someone with infertility…or maybe someone who is just dealing with the day to day trials life can sometimes bring. If you’re looking for a way to show you care but live far away, or are just not quite sure what to do… send a box full of sunshine! It will make their day!
I remember first seeing this box of sunshine gift idea when my Uncle passed away a couple of years ago. Someone had made my Grandma a pot of sunshine and painted it yellow. They filled it with all kinds of happy and yellow things. I thought this was such a sweet idea. Then after going through my loss last summer, I received a box full of sunshine from my dear friend Tiffany. It totally brightened my day and was honestly just what I needed. Since I loved this idea so much, I thought I’d share it with all of you and include some free printables, so you can send your own boxes of sunshine!
