The Seven Year Itch – Best Anniversary Gift Box – Victoria, BC

love bears all things;
believes all things;
hopes all things;
endures all things.

I love a good challenge – who doesn’t right? Something that is a bit out of the norm.. a little different.. something that you’re unsure if you can complete or not.  And, that is exactly how I felt about this gift request!

SL came to me asking for a gift basket for his wife: a gift for their seventh wedding anniversary (congrats!!). The theme that we went with was the “Seven Deadly Sins!”  SL picked up some “Seven Deadly Zins” Wine {Michael David Winery} & the #7 Chocolate from Bernard Callebaut and handed it over to me.. and I ran with it!  Here’s a shot of the gift box with details about each of the products!

Envy – Women’s Health Mag

Wrath – Aromatherapy Oil
Gluttony – Wine

I added some organic lotion to ease the “7 Year Itch” and “The Seven Year Itch” novel by Kate Morris to add a bit of humour ;-) I also found a set of books that covers all 7 of the sins!  His wife’s favourite colour is purple… hence why the theme of the basket revolved around that! I added some custom touches to make it personalized – the happy 7 years sign & her name in a pennant banner for the front.  Just love how it all turned out!
