We’ve been smitten by Claudine Hellmuth’s clever gift boxes that look like ovens and popsicles for a while now. So we just visited her Etsy shop again, and wow, she has so many fun printable gift boxes at her site now that I’m tempted to give away little treats all summer. What I love best about these is that she’s made it possible for a small treat to be really memorable. With dozens of kid birthday parties and teacher-appreciation gifts to give, that’s something I really appreciate.
Of course, your kids could just print these and make them as a fun DIY project that they can use for imaginative play. But they’re also great way to pump up the impact of an easy teacher gift. Make a homemade treat your favorite teachers will love, or pop a gift card into the box for another treat later. The retro-cool designs range from roller skates to cassette tapes to campers and cars of all kinds.
I’m sure my daughter will be asking me for the printable roller skate boxes for her birthday party this summer. They can do double-duty as party favors and table decor, all in one.
And hey, if you’re thinking Father’s Day, a favorite gift card for dad or some homemade treats is more fun in that cool cassette tape box. Just be prepared to explain to the kids what it is.
There are so many more adorable printable gift boxes by Claudine Hellmuth at her Etsy store. All are available for instant download, so you can have it for that gift you need to give, er, right now.
