Preparing the Box
Fill the bottom of a decorative box with basket filler. If you don’t have a cute box on hand, you can paint any cardboard box or cover it with wrapping paper. Try keeping everything in a similar color scheme to make your gift look professional and thoughtful.
Gift Ideas: Office and Craft Supplies
Refresh your friend’s desk with a dry erase board, pencils, paper clips, twine or a picture frame.
Gift Ideas: Beauty and Wellness
Anyone would love to get a surprise gift of hand cream, nail polish or lip balm.
Add Treats and Cute Accessories
Candy is the way to anybody’s heart, so add chocolates and breath mints, and go a step further with a colorful thermos and straws.
Finish It Up
Pack all of the gifts in the box and add a finishing touch by taping a greeting card and miniature banner to the lid for an extra surprise when they open it up.
