Birthday Care Package Box Idea 

Birthday Care Package Surprise

From the moment your loved one opens the box, the bright colors of the birthday care package will bring the birthday fun! The printable box flaps can be trimmed to fit any box. My favorite feature is that you can personalize the side flaps with your loved one’s age using a free Adobe program but that is totally optional! Adding the box flaps is something that is so easy to do but can make a big difference in giving your birthday care package that extra tender loving care!

For a very personalized gift, we have included an editable wrap. Using the free Adobe program you can actually insert your loved one’s name into the printable! How impressive is that?

Here are few ideas of how you can use this printable for your own personalized gift:

  • Wrap the printable around a gift. Anything from a candle to socks would work!
  • Wrap the printable around a jar and fill the jar with their favorite treat
  • Wrap the printable around a box and fill the box with notes containing things you love about them.

Birthday Mad Libs

Finally, we have a fun little game that you can slip into your care package. Everyone loves a classic Mad Libs game and this birthday edition is a simple but fun addition to your box. If your recipient is a little bummed they can’t be with you on their birthday this will certainly liven things up and give them a good smile (and chuckle!).

I met my husband, in a beginning ballroom dance class at the age of 15. He was my first crush, my first date, and twelve years (to the day) later we married. Together we enjoy traveling the world, and, of course, going on creative dates! I am a former theatre teacher who now stays at home with a spunky little boy. I love dancing, hosting parties, photography, organizing & chocolate!
