8 Inexpensive DIY Happy Boxes To Gift Someone You Care About.



One of the nicest feelings in the world is to know that someone out there cares about us. It’s nice to be at the receiving end and it feels even better to be the one surprising a loving person in our lives.

You don’t need a special occasion to do something good to someone you care about. Whether your friend is going through a rough patch or you just want to show you are thinking about them, receiving an unexpected happy box filled with goodies can certainly make someone feel loved and special. It shows you care about them.

It doesn’t need to be anything expensive, just a box filled with inexpensive goodies is a simple gesture that will brighten up their day, and it won’t break the bank!

You can put one of those boxes together fairly quickly. Just follow a theme and a color palette, fill candies, travel size beauty products, notepads, lip balm, a small plush toy, a small candle, a personal hand-written note and any random cute item that grabs your attention.
