A Little Basket of Sunshine

I recently made a couple Sunshine Baskets for a family going through a difficult time. I thought a burst of sunshine might cheer them up and bring a smile to their face. A basket full of fun yellow happy things? A guarantee to brighten someones day!

You could give a sunshine basket as a fun welcome gift, thank you present or a surprise for no reason! You can also theme your box or basket. The possibilities are endless!

Here's what my baskets looked like...

Basket #1
Basket contents: lime hand towel, sour gummy worms, Swedish fish, eos lip balm, Extra gum, Gatorade {Target}, giraffe note pad {Michaels}, Absolut Citron {ABC}, lemon candle, honeysuckle hand soap {Bath & Body Works}

Basket #2 {for a little one}
Basket Contents: squishy ball, punch balloons, Hi-C's, fruit snacks, glow in the dark putty, glow glasses, grow capsules, straws {Target}
 
All of the "Gift of Sunshine" printables can be founds {here}!
