One of my good friends turned 30 on Monday. She is the first of our group to leave her twenties and I think we did a pretty good job celebrating her milestone birthday over the weekend. I helped with the traditional birthday festivities: coordinating the dinner reservation, ordering the cake and picking up the balloons. But the part that I am most excited about is the birthday present that I created for her.
30th Birthday Kit
It’s a kit with the theme of being a kid or being young at heart. I filled it with goodies like a statement necklace, luxe body wash, my favorite lip balm, a beautiful candle, mud masks, and, of course, some wine. I really love this theme and the way it all came together. Here’s how I created it:
The different gifts are from all over and I bought the small white boxes and stock paper at Michael’s.
Then I wrapped each gift individually (because who doesn’t like opening lots of presents on their birthday?) and labeled them.
Here are all the wrapped gifts with labels. The label, “When all else fail, take a time out!” went with a candle and bottle of wine. Sadly, I forgot to take a picture of those items.
All wrapped up, labeled, and bagged.
Last, I created a card introducing the “Essentials for the Young at Heart” kit and added some coordinating tissue paper.
Here’s the final product!
