Three of my adorable nieces were in town last week. Adorable, I tell you!
They are beautiful and witty and charming and lovely and I’ve missed them like crazy. So it was high time for a little welcome gift!
So I grabbed a few bags of mini oreos, bags of fruit snacks, water bottles, pink lemonade singles mixes to snack on. Then I headed out to Michael’s where I found a cute mermaid photo box for under $1.50 on sale! It was the perfect container. Then I raided the party favor/$1 aisles at Michael’s and found some Disney princesses and Tinkerbell play jewelry; Hello Kitty notepad, markers, dry erase board, and stickers; and a tube of glow bracelets.
My nieces are total water babies, so this mermaid top (which I used as a sort of “back drop” tucked into the back of the gift box) is perfect. I also added pink, green, and yellow tissue paper to line the box.
Then it was just a matter of tucking everything neatly in.
And SHAZAAM one cute little gift basket for under $20…
Their reactions? PRICELESS! I mean seriously: plastic jewelry, oreo cookies, and lots of hugs? My aunt work here is done!
