What to put in a Birthday In A Box Gift


Cake is the desert of choice for Birthday celebrations.  So cake makes the perfect thing to include in a birthday box.  Not to mention cake is super easy to find!

Birthday in a Box gift idea - cake mixes

Sometimes I like to include a regular cake mix and frosting that the recipient can easily bake for themselves.  Another idea is to use a mug cake mix.  If you are giving a gift in person, you could even give a baked cake or cupcakes that you make with love, or that you pick up from the bakery.

Birthday Party Supplies

A birthday is a great reason to decorate because everyone wants to be celebrated on their special day!

My favorite candy right now, and the one I keep buying for myself and for others are Nerd Clusters.  I cannot get enough of them and I think everyone else likes them as well.  I'm not a huge fan, but I know that Chocolate is always a good idea too.  

Personal Items
