Complete a random act of kindness by surprising someone with a Sunshine Gift Box filled with uplifting, comforting, and soothing items to brighten their day.
A Chance to Give Back
We are lucky to live in an amazing time where there are so many amazing individuals giving back and doing amazing things for their communities.
Whether it is volunteering at a food bank or a shelter, donating clothes and toys after natural disaster, community support for a family after a tragedy, or simply helping a stranger with a small task, across America people are giving their time and resources to help others who need it most.
From these large tasks, to smaller and subtler random acts of kindness, together people are working towards making this planet a kinder, safer, happier place, one day at a time.
Random Acts of Kindness
We all have a responsibility to give back when we can, to support the communities that have supported us, and to genuinely want to make others day just a little bit better.
As a mom to a little boy, it is important for me to have my son to see me participating in both big and small acts of kindness regularly, and more importantly, to learn the purpose of giving back to those who need it most.
I am always trying to show him different ways we can do something nice for someone else, trying to impress upon him that a little random act of kindness goes a long way.
This season we are committed to brightening someone else’s day with Sunray’s Citrus.
Sunrays are sweet, easy-to-peel mandarins grown and packed by dedicated professionals who are devoted to protecting the environment and making the world a better place – all while delivering the tastiest mandarins around.
How to Create a Sunshine Gift Box
This year, we are sharing the sweetness of the season and giving back to those special people in our community!
You may have seen a few Sunshine Gift Boxes floating around on Pinterest, and for good reason. Sunshine Gift Boxes are meant to be given in the spirit of lifting someone else up, brightening their day, and encouraging them through a loving random act of kindness.
A Sunshine Gift Box Coincides perfectly with Random Acts of Kindness Day, so grab your cuties & other project materials and get ready to give back and give some sunshine to someone who deserves it the most.
Whether you’re looking to say ‘thank you’, to lift the spirits of a sick friend or just to show someone you are thinking of them, a Sunshine Gift Box is the perfect way to say “I am thinking of you”.
What You Need to Create a Sunshine Gift Box
When it comes to assembling your own Sunshine Gift Box, there is a lot of room for creativity.
The idea is to keep the theme colors to yellow and orange and to pick items that are genuinely happy & uplifting.
My son and I had so much fun shopping for our own Sunshine Gift Box which will become a gift for his school teacher. By focusing on our color scheme, he was able to help pick out items he recognized in the store, making it a lot more fun for both of us.
A Gift Box to Say ‘I’m Thinking Of You’
While you can put anything in your gift box, here are some suggestions to get started:
- A sturdy box to hold and deliver your gift
- Beautiful citrus fruit, like Cuties Mandarins
- A soothing item, such as tea, honey & a mug like we chose.
- A self-care item, such as the hand soap and body scrub we chose.
- A comforting item, such as the candle we chose.
Add Color & Nutrition
Oranges are the perfect addition to any Sunshine Gift Box given their beautiful, vibrant orange color and their ability to provide the body with the nutrients it needs to defend itself against stress and sickness, like vitamin C.
Whether your gift box is going to your favorite family with little kids or an elderly neighbor up the street, oranges are the snack that you want to share with those that you love.
Mandarin oranges are easy-to-peel, meaning that young and hold hands alike will love to unwrap and enjoy this easy-to-eat sweet and seedless mandarin.
Oranges are also easy-to-love. They are a healthy, delicious, beautiful way to let someone know that you are thinking about them, and thankfully they are back in store this time of year, ripe and ready to eat.
