Giving Thru Christmas Challenge-Day 6

I am so jazzed about today! I sent a gift to a sweet young lady in college. We have been in a friend/mentoring relationship for several years. She checks in with me once every month or so to let me know what is going on in her life.'s what I did...are you ready? It's a "Party in a Box"! I picked up party plates, napkins, cups, balloons and blowouts from the dollar store. Then I ran to the grocery and got cake mix and confetti frosting. (She lives in a sponsor home, so there is a full kitchen at her disposal.) I packed it all up in brightly colored tissue and mailed it today. I know this might not fly for all college kids, but it is right up her alley. And, I know her friends will love it too!

  1. What a fun idea. And perfect for a college kid away from home!

  2. This is a great idea!! I loved getting notes from my friends from home, and this is even better. It's like a big hug in a box!
