out of the box

Wooden boxes are a great way to present a gift. Tie a beautiful simple ribbon around it and you have a package that anyone would be curious and excited to open. Need an idea of what to put inside? I picture this one filled with fragrant organic tea bags. Pick ones with lavender and you could even go as far as adding a sprig of it under the bow.

What a precious little box. Tea bags would be nice-or perhaps small shells, sea glass and tiny sand dollars.

A version of pandora's box!
I would put a wee heart or a lock of love, or baby keepsakes...
sweet idea...

We love wooden boxes! So many in our house now just because they are divine perfection - empty or filled!

debra - i'm with you...never can go wrong with more shells.

pve - a nice idea for a new mom to store all the firsts....haircut, tooth, word, etc.

mel - us too! love boxes!

Jae- I have done this too, giving an old box with a key. Just the other day I purchased an old coin purse thinking it would be fun to use for a giftcard or jewelry. Enjoy! xoxo
