Boxes of Kisses

Filled with flannels, soap, toothpaste & toothbrush, toys, pens & pencils, tissues, hairbrushes, clips and more.

Some of the items change but always some mittens, each one knitted with the child who will wear them in mind, each stitch knitted with love in my heart, each stitch sending wishes of health and happiness, each pair sent with promises of a better future, sent with the knowledge that someone cares, someone loves them, they are thought of.

And for the last 6 years as we remember our daughter Emma Joan and honour her memory with these boxes of love, as I wrap each and every one we send, as I close the lid, I blow a kiss inside and hope as the lid is lifted in some far away land, that kiss flys out and lands on a cheek and that little person feels the love we send.

This is a beautiful gift...I remember when you did these last year. I'm going to check into the website and see if we can send boxes even from the US.

You have a very generous heart my dear friend. That special someone will definitely open the lid and feel your good spirit. Thinking of you~

Those mittens are so pretty. I think they will be treasured forever by whomever receives them.

What a wonderful way to celebrate christmas. Amidst the furry of shopping people often forget the true meaning of christmas
