These decorated tins make ideal gifts for anyone with something to hide -- like office supplies, kitchen gadgets, or a collection of receipts. You can scour flea markets for boxes, or check out a local crafts store. Then let your imagination run wild.
See below for our suggestions for personalizing your gift boxes.
- Purchase brightly painted metal containers and add appeal with magnetic letters and designs.
- Create your own magnets by purchasing magnetic strips and attaching printed letters or hand-drawn designs.
- Top your boxes with other flashy elements like paper flowers or a row of small magnetic colored blocks.
- Add file-drawer labels that announce the recipient's name or the contents (like a selection of hard candies).
