One thing I love about Harry & David items is the packaging that their gifts come in. They are so reusable, and I always save them for just the right moment.
Like this moment that I’m sharing with you today.
My darling friend Fiona was coming over – just for a visit.
But what she didn’t know was that I planned to send home with her dinner for her family of 5.
Who doesn’t love a surprise dinner? I love having a night off from cooking – it’s a huge treat!
I made this amazing Minestrone soup, and put it in a Ziploc bag.
Added bread, salad, and a little dessert (homemade brownies).
And put it in a pretty box. A reusable pretty box.
A box that I had received a gift in, and saved, and repurposed for the perfect moment.
Now hopefully Fiona will find a good reason to share the box and repurpose it in a creative way.
Repurposing a gift box is a thoughtful, creative way to take a meal to another family in!
Do you ever save gift boxes, baskets or packaging – and what do you do with them?
