Birthday Week Box {or i heart pintrest}

This is the first of may Pintrest inspired projects. Another day, I'll write my love letter to Pintrest!

The hubby turned 26 a couple of weeks ago. While I enjoy doing something special on birthdays, I tend to make a week out of it. That way, if one or both of us have to work or do other things on the actual birthday, there are tons of opportunities to make the other person feel special. 

To kick off birthday week this year, I gave hubby a birthday week box.

I got the idea from this pin which lead me to this wonderful post. I found my pill organizer at the Dollar Tree (score!). I decided to make my own little notes and stuff the compartments with a note and Starbursts. I also added a little gift (replacement Bucky Balls) on his actual birthday. The notest ranged from reasons I love him to giving him a night off of doing the dishes. 

The hubby got a real kick out of opening each day's note. He would leave me "angry" texts if I wasn't up before he left for work and he had to wait to get home to see what the day had in store.

This was a fun, incredibly affordable way to express my gratitude and celebrate my husband throughout his birthday week. I think I'll make it a yearly tradition!  

Here's where I'm partying at!


  1. What a great idea! Thank you for sharing. I'm always looking for new ways to express love...this would also be a great idea for Valentine week, don't you think? LOVE IT!

  2. You are so sweet. My hubby's birthday just passed and I was not as sweet. What a fun idea. I am a new follower from the Sundae Scoop. Vicky from Mess For Less

  3. What a sweet and thoughtful idea. I find that often these simple type gifts mean the most.
