It’s Sunshine in a Box!  It’s a gift box filled with all things yellow {like the sun, obviously} to send off to friends or family who need a little pick me up or some sunshine in their life.  What a very cute idea.  You can find this idea over at Katherine Maries.  I also found some other great gift basket type ideas that may inspire you the next time your giving a gift to a neighbor, friend, or family member.

Here’s a great idea for a baby shower gift.  Baby to-go bags.  One for each day of the week.  Each bag is filled with a baby onesie, a travel package of wipes, a diaper, and whatever else a mom would need on the go.  The idea is to grab a bag on your way out the door if your in a hurry.  Very clever.  A new mom would absolutely love this.

This is a great idea for an upcoming anniversary for your spouse or a couple your close with.  The idea is to set up 12 envelopes, each envelope contains 1 date night.  It includes a gift card for dinner, maybe an activity like the movies, or something more creative.  This is a great gift for couples who tend to slack or put off date night {ahem!  Like me & the hub’s} this will make it effortless.  Well outside of finding a sitter.
