Sometimes it feels like tragedy hits several loved ones at the same time. Near the end of the year last year, we knew a family who lost a child to suicide, a good friend who lost her uncle, and a few other people that needed some extra love in their life.

Sometimes it can be hard to know what to say in moments like this. This is when I feel like a basket of sunshine says it all!

Basket of Sunshine. Perfect gift for so many things!

First, I go on Instagram and search the hashtag “inspirational quote” and find some good ones that match what that person is going through. I then write them on yellow or heart-shaped sticky notes. I then buy a bunch of yellow items and compile them all together into a “Sunshine Basket.”

I also like to get a few cute jars from the Dollar Tree to put some of the items and candies in. If you need something low-cost you could just do “jar of sunshine” and fill it with various yellow candies.

Here are some things I have included in the past:

and anything else yellow that catches my eye! The fun thing about using the color of yellow, is that you can also play of the phrase “when life gives you lemons” if it fits the situation.

Basket of Sunshine. Great way to sympathize with someone when you don't have the words!
