Simple Christmas Gift

Thanks to my friend, Lisa, who just sent me this cute idea:

Box with Love Inside

This particular gift idea is so easy and says “I love you” so well, that you won’t want to miss out on it!Make several of these wonderful keepsakes and give them to grandparents, aunts, uncles, and anyone who needs a smile.

Take empty boxes (hair color, toothpaste, etc.), wrap them in wrapping paper, then tie them up with a ribbon.

Attach to the box this note:

I took an ordinary box
As empty as can be
I filled it with a special gift
And wrapped it carefully.

But please don’t ever open it
Just leave the ribbon tied
And hold it tightly near your heart
Because my love for you’s inside!

If you prefer to use bows over ribbon, simply adjust the poem to read:

I took an ordinary box
As empty as can be
I filled it with a special gift
And wrapped it carefully.

But please don’t ever open it
Just leave the bow applied
And hold it tightly near your heart
Because my love for you’s inside!

Using bows, of course, is easier than the ribbon for little ones. To dress up the poem, use pinking shears to cut out the poem you have written or printed out, then glue that to another piece of posterboard or construction paper of another color for a border effect.
