For a year my daughter and I gave each other the Birch Box subscriptions. We loved seeing the beautiful boxes that would come each month and I refused to throw mine away because they are works of art. But what to do with 12 boxes that are taking up space?
For this DIY gift, I made an emergency box for my nieces and nephews for their lockers at school. I didn't do anything special to the box itself, except to add this adorable label:
Inside the box I added these items:
Protein bar, slim jims, $2 in quarters for the vending machine, sample deodorants, mascara (for the girls), breath freshener mints, travel toothbrush and paste, hair grooming supplies, Tide to Go, earbuds and a couple of positive, uplifting messages just in case it is one of those days!
This personal gift can be just that: personalized to meet the needs of your teen/tween. These are inexpensive and fun to assemble, and uses up all my beautiful Birch boxes!
I love this little DIY because it is easy enough for everyone who wants to make their Christmas gifts, it is fairly inexpensive (I made 6 for under $40) and it is personal!
Happy Kit Making!
