I am looking for the poem or saying that goes along with the empty box valentine gift. Where the kids take a empty box that is wrapped and they decorate it and give it to there parents where they never open it. Does anyone have the poem that goes along with it. I think its a empty box of love poem not too sure.

I took an ordinary box
As empty as can be
I filled it with a special gift
And wrapped it carefully.

But please don't ever open it
Just leave the ribbon tied
And hold it tightly near your heart
Because my love for you's inside!

"This is a very special gift
That you can never see
The reason that it's special
It's just for you from me
Whenever you are lonely
Or when you're feeling blue
You only have to hold this
gift and know I think of you
You never can unwrap it
Please leave the ribbon tied
Just hold this box close to your heart
It's filled with love inside
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

Love In A Box

Love In A Box

I'm giving you a present,
It's my love inside a box.
It's not too much to look at,
But it's the best I've got.

So I hope it makes you happy,
If it doesn't, I never can.
But if love in a box is worth it, then,
I'll take you by the hand.

This is a very special gift
That you can never see
The reason itís so special is
Itís just for you from ME!

Whenever you are lonely
Or even feeling blue
You only have to hold this gift
And know that I think of you.

You never need to unwrap it.
Please leave the ribbon tied.
Just hold the box next to your heart,
Itís filled with love inside.

I love that poem and have been looking for it for some time. Does anybody know where I can order the mini wooden boxes with the Love in a Box poem on them? I guess I could make them myself, but I have seen them in a gift shop but can't remember where.

Thanks
Pam

just cut out a piece of cardboard and wrap it in paper and ribbon then paste your poem on top. Even use old gift bags as paper. Easy as pie and cost effective for larger groups.

Thank you so so much for posting this poem on line. I have been wanting to have it for ages. I have been saving little boxes (match boxes, jewelry boxes) to wrap and attach this poem to sell as inexpensive gifts for folks to buy. I also used to give them as gifts when I really could not afford to buy gifts.
I cannot thank you enough. You're an angel!

I use empty soap boxes and wrap them in pretty paper. It does not cost you a thing!
Enjoy,

You can also put a magnet on the back of the small box and it will be a refrigerator magnet.

This is the poem I use in little heart shaped boxes that I glue shut....

You can buy the boxes at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. I get mine from Firemountaingems.com, they are quite reasonable. Cute story. I gave one to my daughter one year when she was about 7 or 8. Later she came to me and asked for some glue. I gave her glue. Then I spied on her. She had broken the box open wanting to see what love looked like. When I caught her glueing it back together she apologized profusely and said, love is what you cannot see and that is what makes it so special.

my version of the poem is slightly different from the others so i thought i'd post it



this is a very special gift
that you can never see,
the reason it's so precious is
it's just to you from me

whenever you are lonely
or ever feeling blue
this gift is your reminder
i'm always here with you

be sure you don't unwrap it
please leave the ribbon tied
just hold it nice and close to you
it's filled with love inside.






I hope this has been helpful, im actually making one of these boxes atm to give to my boyfriend.

I have the poem on a folding box template to print on card for the students to color and decorate. I laminate the finished pages for students to cut out, help them score along all the fold lines for sharp edges, and seal the flaps with hot glue.

I have found little paper gifts designed to go on your christmas tree at department stores at christmas time. They're very delicate because there's no actual box inside but it saves the trouble of wrapping. Oh there's a bow already done too.
