Example of a Crappy Day Package #2

Another Lovely, Lovely Person* sent me a Crappy Day Package a while ago, and care packages are just SO! MUCH! FUN! I thought that everyone who comes here looking for "Crappy Day Present" might like more ideas, so here is another fabulous example:

I was cheered up before I even opened it!

I took this box with me when I took Husband to the airport.  I left it in the car so I would have a good reason to leave the airport instead of sitting in a chair crying until Husband came home because it was too large to fit in my purse.

After Husband had boarded his plane and I had used up all of the tissues I had brought with me, I headed back to my car, and my mantra was:  "If I can ever find my car again in this miserable parking garage When I get to the car, I can open a present.  When I get to the car, I can open a present...."

And what a nice present it was!

  1. A brightly wrapped can that makes mysterious noises (see below)
  2. Knitting Dolls to keep the children busy if they can pry them out of my hands
  3. Key Lime Cookie Mix (with frosting mix too!) that I am looking forward to making today
  4. A Chinese yo-yo which is going to be SUCH a NICE CHANGE from the death traps regular yo-yo's the kids have insisted on using lately
  5. Lilac Blossom Soap!  (This Lovely Person must have been peeking in my windows because my bathroom is purple and I have a Lilac Blossom candle sitting on the counter!)
  6. A giant muffin batter/cookie dough scoop!!  Hooray!  I didn't have that size, and I think it will be perfect for when I make my favorite muffins.  (I discovered on Thursday that it is also the PERFECT size for scooping waffle batter WITHOUT causing the batter to overflow which makes a GIGANTIC mess that makes me want to tear my hair out!)
I saved the mysterious can for another Crappy Day, and, sure enough:  I had one shortly thereafter!  You know you're in trouble when you need to open a Crappy Day Present by 9am;  fortuitously, because I had not yet had a chance to eat breakfast on this particular morning, when I popped the top on the can, it contained peanut butter M&Ms!

This Lovely Person is also SMART!  What a great way to cleverly disguise a gift!
Thank you, Lovely Person, for making some hard days a little easier!!
*I will be keeping Crappy Day Present senders anonymous so that the sender doesn't have to worry that Person Q is going to see what they (the sender) sent me and possibly feel bad that their (Person Q's) package was not as fabulous as mine ;-). But if you don't worry as much as I do aren't worried about that, you are welcome to claim your package in the comments!

I love the "Are YOU feeling crappy?" with "I can help" in little letters. I love the decorating of the box. And I love seeing crappy day presents and jotting down ideas!
