So you had a bad day?? Well, let’s get our theme song playing…..

Now that you are smiling cuz that song ROCKS….here is a solution for you! Why not create a “Bad Day” box for those rainy days?? I saw this idea on this blog…and fell in LOVE with the concept! I seem to have a lot more “bad days” than my husband….maybe because I am a sucha GIRL and crying always seems like the best thing to do at the time….and then the next best thing is to think of a solution! {lol}  Having a box on hand – filled with things your spouse LOVES….is the PERFECT idea!!  You are basically preparing for unexpected things that we all know can {and will} pop up in life.  Call it an “emergency preparedness kit for emotions”.  {WINK!}

This adorable “emergency preparedness kit for emotions” AKA “Bad Day” Box kit includes:

  • Black and Red version of the “Bad Day” Box printables
  • Brown and Blue version of the “Bad Day” Box printables
  • 4 Black and Red printable love notes for the inside of the box
  • 4 Brown and Blue printable love notes for the inside of the box
  • Instructions and materials to make your “Bad Day” Box in LESS than 15 minutes! Er….once you gather the stuff, that is!  🙂

  1. I’m a newbie to reading this blog. I LOVE IT! You gals Rock!

    I love the “bad day” box idea. I think I’m going to make one for my hubs and one for each of my kids. With hubby’s job right now, he seems to have more bad days than good, which spills over for all of us (kids get less time with Daddy, I get frustrated being alone with kids and no couple time, etc.). It’s a vicious cycle. Hopefully with the “bad day box”, we can interrupt our “bad day negativity” and make our days better!

    Thank you for the idea.

  2. I love this idea! I just finished putting together a box for my husband….is it totally mean to hope he has a bad day soon so I can surprise him with it? Lol. Thanks for another great idea!

  3. So glad you gals like this idea! 🙂 My husband actually had one DOOZY of a bad day recently…..and I was SO glad I had this!! 🙂 Always good to be prepared! 🙂

  4. I’m a new reader of this blog so this post and all of the other links, were so fun and gave me some great ideas. I’m not big into crafty things, but I can modify these ideas in my own way and I love them! I also love how much you ladies love your husbands out there…it’s so refreshing!

    1. Awww…thanks, Sharlee! It’s nice to hear that! 🙂 In a world where couples like to talk badly about their spouses to their friends….it has been SO fun for all of us to collaborate on ideas that actually BUILD up our spouses! Welcome to our website!

  5. I LOVE this site. The first time I heard about it was about a month ago and I have picked SEVERAL things to do from here and done them as well as have a couple group dates in the planning and some fun stuff for my hubby. He has loved this “new me” who is creative and doing sweet things for him to let him know I love him. I personally LOVE this idea…. but also love the idea of having his name on the box rather than “the”? Is there a template that we could use? or a font name to make it match? (I am BIG in photoshop and illustrator) Thanks again for all your ladies hard work to make it easy for us. 😉

    1. Hi Jessica! We are so glad you love the site! 🙂 We only offer the printables that are available for free downloads and already posted on the site. If you would like to alter the printable & are proficient at Photoshop, I would suggest uploading it into your Photoshop Program, erase “the” & replace it with his name. 🙂 Good luck! He will LOVE it!

          1. ok I have to ask…. I know I already asked for the pupcat font but I absolutly LOVE the other font that you use thru your ENTIRE website!! Is it one you guys made? or is it another one that is free?

          2. Yeah, we love it too! It’s called “Scriptina”. We used that font on our wedding invitations when it *first* came out and I fell in love….and use it all the time.

          3. I used Scriptina on my wedding invitations too! But my current favorite font is MA Sexy–that’s the one that is “Community” at the top of the page, right? Love it’s feminine quality. 🙂

  6. I love this idea and was thinking I could kind of incorperate this into a birthday box for my Mom’s 76th birthday and instead of a bad day box, it could be a birthday box and all the guests could write their favorite memories of our mom and put some favorite things in the box for her…I want to do it for my husband as well. Thanks for the idea.

  7. Hi, Tara! This is such a great idea! We love this a lot we are sharing this in the blog and our facebook page and twiiter today. Do grab a featured button if you fancy so. votations starts today. have a lovely weekend!


  8. I just came across your blog and I’m loving all the ideas you share! Thank you! as. Mom with 2 under 5 and a lot of church obligations, it’s nice to have such a fun resource and to know there are others that need to get creative in dating in their marriages, too!

  9. I love this idea so much! My husband was recently diagnosed with MS so he has a lot more bad days than he used to. This will be a great thing to lift his spirits when he isn’t feeling well. 🙂

  10. I just made this box for my hubby after a long work-week. For how easy it was to do, he was so appreciative! I filled the box with his favorite adult beverage, candy, golf balls and love notes. This was awesome. I can’t wait to do more!

  11. This is great! My boyfriend is stressed out with his last year of college so I am going to totally do this for him! What do you think would be some cute things to put in it???

    1. Anything that would make him smile or are his favorite things. Candy, love notes, new socks, clothes, sports items, things to do with his hobbies, office supplies {if it would make him happy}, coupons, giftcards to his favorite place, etc. ANYTHING that can fit into the box you create and cheer him up – go for it! Have fun putting it together! xoxo

  12. This is seriously my favorite website!! I have to tell you I have found so many great things to impliment in our family & the love notes will work great for my teenage daughter too because God knows we need reassurance at that age!! Thank you for all of the resources you’ve supplied & I think a great thing to add to the box would be bible scriptures (for us personally) along with “I love you because.” I have passed your site along to 3 people already since yesterday 🙂 that is how great I think you all are!!

    1. Thank you for your sweet words, Annie! I am SO glad you love our website! You are so welcome & we sure appreciate your help in spreading the word about our site! XOXO
