These gift boxes are pretty easy to make, but watching a video sure does help. In this video, I share how to create gift boxes, including how to turn an old shoebox into a pretty box, so you don’t have to buy a box. Watch the video below!
Items for creating the prettiest gift box
The items you need for creating a lovely gift box are totally customizable and are dependent entirely on you. The type of items you use will also depend on the occasion for the gift. A Christmas gift box will likely include some baked goods, while a self-care box will include tea or a scented candle. I like to create gift boxes with items I would love to receive as a gift. If it’s good enough for me, then it’s good enough to be given away. The items listed below are just ideas to guide you. Feel free to add to them or take them away. The idea is to keep it budget-friendly without it looking cheap.
- A box: An old shoebox or a wooden crate will work well for the carrier box. Chances are you have these items lying around in your home. Simply wrap an old shoebox in a pretty wrapping paper and it will be good as new.
- Something homemade: Homemade gifts are personal, unique, and thoughtful. It shows that a lot of effort went into making them. My Clustered Granola, Christmas Fruit Cake & DIY Bath Salts will make the perfect additions to any holiday-inspired gift box. Add some homemade hot chocolate mix or some chai latte mix like the one I made in my video for something extra special.
- Something new: A brand new pink coffee mug, scented candles with floral scents or fall/winter scents for the holidays, pink face towel/scarf/mini blanket, reed diffusers, chocolate bars, pink flowers, organic tea, a chic girly juice cup, etc are perfect additions to any girly gift box.

Assembling the gift box
Once all the items have been selected, add some fillers into the box, and arrange the items into the box the way you like. And that’s it. You have the perfect budget-friendly gift box any girly girl will love.
