Looking for a unique and creative gift idea? Boxes are one of the most versatile of gifts that are so often forgotten when one ponders over the limited selection of original and useful gift ideas. Don't settle for boring traditional gifts. Boxes can be used in so many creative ways for birthday and Christmas gifts, shower gifts, wedding favors, and romantic proposals. Here are are few suggestions we've found to make your gift giving extra special.
For more information on Unique Box Shop's gift options or gift handling procedures, see our Gift Options
Baby Footprint Box (Suggested by Michelle of Round Lake Beach IL) - A wooden box from Poland makes a great gift for a new baby coming into the world. Take the box to the hospital when the baby is born and have the hospital put their footprints in the lid of the box. This will be a keepsake treasured for generations to come.
Nesting Doll Scavenger Hunt (Suggested by Emily) - You start with the smallest doll and put in a piece of paper. On this paper will be directions to some place in the house where a gift, along with the next doll, will be found. You do the same thing for each doll found (putting in directions). Kind of makes it like a scavenger hunt and makes the person work their gift.
Puzzle Box Money Holders - This is a great idea for teens who are so hard to buy for. Put their gift money in one of our many puzzle boxes (Japanese, Costa Rican, or Polish) and enjoy watching them try to get it out. Of course all of our puzzle boxes come with instructions, but maybe you'll "accidentally" put them "in" the box too!
Romantic Proposals - Nothing is more personal than a ring or other token of affection presented in a box suited just for the receiver. Some of the boxes our customers have used for this are the Hearts Polish Secret Box and our small Japanese Puzzle Boxes.
Birthday Puzzle Boxes - For a 12th, 14th, 21st, or 27th birthday give a Japanese puzzle box that takes the same number of steps (12, 14, 21, or 27) to open it. Make it even better by putting something special inside.
Nesting Doll Wrappers - Try taking apart a set of nesting dolls and putting special gifts inside each one. Then wrap each one individually. Wow, thats at least 5 presents in 1! Some suggestions for stuffers: candy, vanity items, jewelry, or money.
