The “Us” Box from Grey Likes Weddings

March 12, 2010

Our dear friend Summer (and one of the coolest girls we know), of Grey Likes Weddings, crafted and sent us the cutest idea called the “Us” Box to share with all of you today! She wanted to give her boyfriend tangible items that represent intangible commitments that she makes to him in their relationship. She typed out explanations on tags, attached them to each item, then presented everything to him inside a vintage suitcase. (how cuuuuute!)

Summer says, “I think the idea works beautifully for anyone looking for a beautiful gift to give someone…be it their fiance on their wedding day, their mother on mother’s day, etc. What I love about giving it to my boyfriend is that we can both continue to add to it as our relationship grows and requires new promises. I also love that our children will be able to paw through the box and understand in very tactile ways what we do to put our love in action.”

What an amazing and thoughtful idea, Summer. Lucky boyfriend.
