Sunshine Gift Idea

Peachy Keen: "Sunshine" Gift Idea
I'm a big fan of sending little pick-me-up packages to people. In fact, that was probably one of my favorite things about keeping in contact with friends who were serving missions--I loved coming up with different themes, color combinations, etc. (I know, so ridiculous! ;) The chance to collect fun, little things while walking around a store and knowing that it'll make someone's day a little bit better? Yes, please! I love it so much, that I decided to send my little sister a "sunshine" package to open as she jumps into a new semester at college.
Peachy Keen: "Sunshine" Gift Idea
What I included in the package:
  • gold bead necklaces
  • Butterfingers
  • Burt's Bees chapstick
  • Juicy Fruit gum
  • hearts cut out of yellow felt
  • fingernail polish
  • balloons
  • a sticky note pad with a pick-me-up note/drawing on each page
  • a letter
  • a fake flower
  • Lemonheads
What are your favorite things to send people when they need a pick-me-up?

  4. This fun gift would surely cheer someone up! I love putting together colored themed gifts. When our youngest son was on his mission I had fun sending him lots of colored packages, like green goodies for St. Patty's. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

    1. Haha, I have to admit that I'm quite jealous! Can't wait until I have kids of my own and they go on missions or move away so I can send them fun stuff. :)
