Very Special Box

This project is a great little all occasion gift. You can add a small magnet onto the bottom of small boxes to pop onto the fridge. I have made 100's of these for school fetes and fundraisers.

Very Special Box

What you need

Small gift box
Wrapping paper


Take a small box and wrap it up with gift wrap. If you don’t have a small box use small wood blocks, foam or even wrapped match boxes. It really doesn’t matter what size or shape your box is as it is only symbolic.

Wrap the box up with ribbon and print out and attach the following poem.

This is a very special gift

That you can never see

The reason it’s so special is

It’s just for you from me.

Whenever you are lonely

Or are ever feeling blue

You only have to hold this gift

And know I’m hugging you.

You never can unwrap it

Please leave the ribbon tied

Just hold the box close to your heart

It’s filled with hugs inside.

    I’ve been looking for ideas of home-made gifts to give to my best friend and second mum for her birthday, and I found this! I made it today, decorated it to make it look really special and can’t wait to give it to her in a couple of days! Thanks so much for giving me a great idea to let my friend know how much I love her xx
