DIY BIRTHDAY BOX TEA CARE PACKAGE

Want to give a more personalized gift on someone’s special day? Send them a cute care package to let them know you’re thinking of them! Here are some easy ideas to help you create the best DIY Birthday Box for tea lovers to make their special day tea-riffic.

DIY BIRTHDAY BOX

GET THE BOX

All you need is a box filled with some of their favorite things plus a few special items they wouldn’t normally buy themselves. Choose a decorative box to fill up with gifts or, for a personalized touch, decorate the box yourself with pictures, quotes, stickers, inside jokes, or anything else that reminds you of them!

FILL IT UP

Remember, this care package is a unique birthday gift tailored to celebrate the special birthday person in your life. Here are some general gifts you can’t go wrong with, but brainstorm opportunities for personalizing these gifts to make it the perfect gift!

Tea (of course!) For tea lovers, nothing is more exciting than new tea! Sprinkle in a handful of delightful new teas thoughtfully chosen just for them. To stay in the spirit of the special day, teas like Pinky Up’s Red Velvet Cake or Confetti Cake are the perfect birthday teas to celebrate the special day.

Special-tea accessories: They’ve got the tea, now go the extra mile. Tea accessories can be easily overlooked but they make all the difference for a special tea surprise. Little gifts like local honey swizzle sticks make a sweet addition, or a tea infuser that’s functional and cute. Plus, tea lovers can never have too many mugs. Check out our mugs & tea accessories in the Sips by Tea Shop.

A gift card (for the gift of choice!) Not quite sure what they’d like? Make it simple - Add a few teas, and treats in the birthday box and then give the gift of choice! Leave the rest up to them with a gift card to their favorite store, or kick start their personalized tea discovery journey with a Sips by subscription gift card.

Self-care with tea sips: Help make self-care easy and give the gift of relaxation. Include an aromatic candle or a pack of bath bombs in your tea care package so they can unbox a ready-to-go soothing night of self-care.

Snacks. Enough said. Throw in boxes of candy, cookies, or other treats so they can celebrate with something sweet on their birthday!

Add a personal touch: Handwritten notes are a meaningful lost art. If you want to make your birthday care package even more special, finish it off with a personal touch by writing a birthday card or note that tells them how much they mean to you.

SEND IT

The beauty of a care package is that it can be gifted in person or mailed to loved ones far away. Wrap up your box with a bow and deliver your DIY care package to the special tea lover on their birthday!
