Girls Just Want to Have Sun - A Gift to Lift Her Spirits

Sunshine in a Box Gift

Life can be tough at times. None of us are immune to challenges and disappointments and everyone has a bad day, week or month every now and then. Watching a friend go through a challenge can be almost as hard as going through it yourself. You feel for her and want to help but are not sure what you can do.

While many of life’s challenges take time to work through it can be very helpful to know that someone cares for you and is thinking of you. When in the middle of the darkness a little sunlight from a friend can be a lifesaver.

The Girls Just Want to Have Sun gift box can help provide that ray of sunlight. When she opens the gift she will experience a burst of yellow happiness. The “You are My Sunshine” candle will remind her that she is not alone and that she is loved. Everyone knows that a little sugar can boost our spirits and this box is packed full of treats and snacks. Also included is a happy yellow lip balm to make sure her lips are moisturized and ready to smile.

Help bring a ray of sunshine to a friend who is feeling down with the Girls Just Want to Have Sun gift box.

Ex-Change Rate – Getting Over a Breakup

Breakups are no fun. When you are in the middle of one it can be hard to see how your life will ever get back to normal. Having to watch a friend go through a breakup can be hard. You want to tell her that “You will be better off without him” or “This is a good thing for you” but you know she is not ready to hear that yet. What you really need to do is to distract her and get her laughing again.

The Ex-Change Rate gift box is the perfect way to do that. It has all the tools that a woman will need to get over a broken relationship. She will have a great time expressing her frustration with strategically placed pins in the colorful voodoo doll. When pins are just not enough it is time to move on to the 5-in-1 Multi Tool Floral Hammer. Smashing the stuff he left at her place or even framed pictures of him can be very therapeutic. When she has grown tired of venting her frustration she can spend a relaxing night at home reading the helpful and hilarious It's Called a Breakup Because It Is Broken: The Smart Girls Break-Up Buddy softcover book. It has all the tips and advice she needs to move on and prepare for her next relationship.

She might choose to read the book in the tub where she can use the bath bomb, personalized powder coated wine tumbler and the delicious gourmet popcorn.

With the Ex-Change Rate gift box she will quickly forget about her broken relationship and will be ready for the next phase of her life and she will have you to thank for it.

Call Me a Toe Truck – A Gift for Her Feet

It is summer sandal season, and every woman wants amazing pedicured feet. Going to the spa with a friend to get a pedicure can be a fun activity, however, it can be time consuming and expensive. Why not instead give her a pedicure gift box that she can use over and over.

The Call Me a Toe Truck gift box is packed with everything she will need for amazing feet and toes. To start off there is a personalized tumbler so she can sip her favorite beverage while she works on her feet. A 10-piece stainless steel pedicure kit will give her all the tools she needs to work on those toenails. She can then use the pumice pad, pedicure wand, and sloughing lotion to soften those calloused heals.

After filing with the cute, patterned nail files and pushing back those cuticles with the Birchwood cuticle sticks she will be ready for the included cuticle revitalizing oil and high gloss top coat. When she is done everything goes back in the included waterproof bag until she is ready to use it again.

Next time you see your friend she will be excited to thank you for your gift and to show off her amazing feet. At that point you might be a little jealous and want to grab the Call Me a Toe Truck gift box for yourself.

You’re a Gem – A Thank You Gift for Friends

Thank You Gift Box

A good friend is always there for you. They pick you up when you are down. They make you laugh. A good friend has your back and is your biggest cheerleader. Sometimes a friend does something for you that deserves more than just a text telling them thank you. When you are looking for something special that lets her know how much you appreciate her, the You’re a Gem gift box is the perfect solution.

Each time she uses the personalized water tumbler with her name engraved on it she will remember who gave it to her. She will love the cute diamond pen and scented soy travel candle as well. Hopefully, if you are lucky, she will share some of the amazing popcorn and nuts with you.

A true friend does not expect a thank you gift, but they definitely deserve one and will sure love it when you give her the You’re a Gem gift box.

I Need My Net-FIX – Her Movie Night Gift

Gift for Movie Lovers

When you get together with your friends do you like to discuss the latest season of Grey’s Anatomy that you have all been binge watching on Netflix? When one of you quotes Dwight from the Office do you all know exactly which episode it came from? Do you like to text each other while watching Stranger Things so you are not so afraid?

If you are looking for a fun birthday gift idea for women who love to watch Netflix or other streaming services, the I Need My Net-Fix gift box is the perfect solution. It can make a great birthday gift for her or you could give it to her for no reason at all.

The tablet/cell phone stand is the perfect size to take with you and allows you to easily watch your favorite episode wherever you go. She will love the cute popcorn socks and fleece blanket that will keep her cozy and warm while kicking back on the couch. No one wants to have to take a break mid episode to get a drink, which means the personalized water tumbler with her name engraved on it will be a big hit. With three bags of gourmet popcorn and a bag of gummy bears she will have all the snacks she needs for one of those nights where the “Auto Play Next Episode” keeps her glued to the couch for hours.

When you give her the I Need My Net-FIX gift box, the next time you get together you will be talking about the amazing gift you gave her instead of what happened in last night’s episode.

A-Salt & Flattery – Sweet and Salty Gifts

Sweet and Salty Snack Crate

Some people have a sweet tooth and only love sweet treats. Others crave salt and only eat salty snacks. The remaining 99% of the population know that salty and sweet go great together. If you are looking for the perfect all occasion gift for her the A-Salt & Flattery gift box is the right choice.

Included in the gift box is an amazing personalized square glass candy/nut bowl that can be engraved with her name or her favorite saying. Don’t worry about the bowl being empty too long. In the gift box she will find three bags of delicious gourmet popcorn as well as a bag of nuts, gummy bears, stroopwafels, and trail mix. She will have more snacks than she knows what to do with so we suggest that you find a reason to be there when she opens the box, so you can share in the yummy goodness.

Scrub a Dub Dub: Bath and Relaxation Gifts

Relaxing Bath Gift Set

There are few things in life as relaxing as a warm bath. When you are looking for the perfect gift for a stressed-out friend the Scrub a Dub Dub gift box is a great choice. However, be sure to ship the gift directly to her because if it comes to you first you may decide to keep it for yourself!

The soft inflatable neck pillow is sure to be a hit. It inflates quickly and folds down for easy storage when not in use. Of course, every good bath includes your favorite beverage so the personalized wine tumbler with her name engraved on it will be the hit of the box. The rubber ducky soap is really too cute to use so that will probably stay in its box. However, the bath salts, premium sugar scrub and bath bombs will be used and enjoyed for several baths to come.

The first time you see your friend after receiving her Scrub a Dub Dub gift box you might notice that she is significantly less stressed and noticeably more pruney.
