How to Assemble a Wonderful Birthday Package

A few weeks ago, we mentioned in this post that we have several autumn birthdays in the family. One of them is our older sister’s birthday. Rebecca doesn’t live in Wisconsin anymore, so it’s not very often that we get to help her celebrate her birthday. However, this year, we were able to meet up with her and her husband for an early birthday celebration!

We younger sisters wanted to put together a birthday package full of beautiful, fun, and delicious items for our beautiful, fun, and sweet older sister. We began brainstorming and searching Etsy and Pinterest for inspiration. We purchased some of the items, like these vanilla custard-scented sugar scrubs and this vanilla cupcake-scented body “frosting.”

These honey caramels from the Beesbrothers Etsy shop inspired us to make our own version.

We also had a few soaps that we had purchased from Joan’s Garden a few months ago. For Rebecca’s package, we chose the red clover scent and the mocha scent. Yum!

Some items we lovingly hand-made ourselves, such as two little handsewn notebooks (you can find similar ones here) and a dish towel with a cross-stitched floral design. Mom also gave Rebecca a gift card to one of her favorite places to shop.

  1. Gorgeous! Giving home-made gifts is one of my favourite things to do. You have inspired me to do a post on some of the things I have made as gifts recently, thanks 🙂
