One thing that always helps me to get out of a woe-is-me funk is to cheer someone else up. So a few days ago I decided to make a “Spring Break… in a box!” for a good friend who also lives in the frozen, crusty, will spring ever come?, upper midwest. She just started a new job and you know what that means, lovelies: no vacation any time soon. So I shipped off this fun box to her this week and I can’t wait to hear her response. Hopefully she has a spectacular trip and sends me a postcard! Shhh, it’s a surprise!
Contents? The basics for a DIY living room Spring Break! Crank up the heat, pop in some cheesy music, throw the drink on ice… Relax!
- a flowery lei
- orange flip-flops
- a couple shells
- a fun cup
- some tequila and orange juice
- a few drink umbrellas
- beach ball
- and a coconut!
Full disclosure: I was inspired to make this gift from You Are My Fave’s Birthday in a Box idea. So cute, right?
P.S. Lovelies, don’t tell the USPS that I sent alcohol in the mail…
