I’m all for handmade and DIY. But sometimes you just procrastinate a little too much and suddenly the gift giving occasion is four days away and you have three days that are exploding with plans and activities.

I’m kind of obsessed with the idea of gift boxes right now. It shouldn’t be surprising since I’m always a fan of themed gifts (I just bought a birthday boy a monster puppet making kit with a monster book to go with it—and you can bet your butt I’m going to wrap it in Monsters U wrapping paper). And gift boxes are the perfect way to go semi homemade.
Themed gift boxes are kind of awesome because you can take a broad idea and make it work for your budget it while tailoring it for the person you’re giving it to.
