Hi all my box is made of sandal wood so it has a lovely aroma when you open it. The top of the box is covered in delightful squares of abalone shell so it is creamy coloured and brilliantly shiny.


When you open the box there are two compartments lined with green silk.

resting in the first side an envelope in which a ticket to ride on ~~~~~~~~~~~~

in the second side an enchanting broach of a hot air balloon with a wicker basket in chased silver and the ropes binding the balloon.,which is green and yellow.

So My present is a ticket to ride what is yours??????????

my box is cardboard held together with sticky tape - it's slightly wonky, but full of hope [ a bit like me :) ]

there's paper flowers and they're dusted with glitter to remind us of these sunny days,

there's crayons, stickers & pens to decorate it with,

a throw-away camera to capture magic moments,

and a frame to display the photo's in.

my box is a day to remember.

Love your boxes guys :) Mine is a midnight blue velvet one that feels gorgeous (doing desensitising exercises at mo for CRPS) and when it's opened has a rich satin lining. In it is a bottle of frankincense massage oil, some large smooth pebbles, a soft body wrap with matching eye mask, a bottle of elderflower cordial and an iPod with lots of music and books read by people with lovely voices...

my box is a luxury pamper day(s!) with a reduction of pain (dare I say pain-free? oops just did)

there must be more boxes out there?


sounds ideal :)
