Lunchbox Love Review & Giveaway

THIS POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS
For several months, I had been admiring the adorable little love notes that many of my bento friends placed in their children's lunches.  However, I homeschool my children and we eat lunch together each day, so I didn't really think I needed them. That's when the kind folks at Say Please offered to send me some Lunchbox Love notes to review.  I must say, I ADORE them!!  
It is true that these notes are perfect for adding to a child's lunchbox or backpack, but they have so many other uses, too!!  A couple days after receiving my cards, my husband left town for a week-long business trip.  I tucked several of them into his suitcase and overnight bag.  He was so excited when he found each of them and told me how special and loved it made him feel.

I have also left them in his bible, hidden in his laptop, with his vitamins in the medicine cabinet, and with his morning coffee.  I have left them for my children on their chore charts, atop their pillows, in their books and toys, as well as with their lunches. As random acts of kindness, I have left one for a waiter, handed one to a store clerk, and placed one in a bank teller box.  These notes are perfect to show your gratitude, love and kindness to anyone! 

The notes are two sided, each with a special message on the front and a fun trivia fact on the back.  There are dozens of different sets available, each containing 12 cards.  
With so many options, you are sure to find the perfect sets for everyone you love! They even have a special CAMP edition that would be perfect for summer!  Even better, Say Please has generously offered to give some Lunchbox Love notes to one of my lucky readers!  

To enter this giveaway, and keeping with the spirit of Lunchbox Love, leave a comment below telling my readers an interesting piece of trivia.  This will open up additional entry options.  This giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents only. Winner will be randomly chosen on July 9 and will have 48 hours to respond.  If I do not hear back in that time, I will choose an alternate winner.

  13. 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water
    When astronauts first went into the space, they looked back at the Earth with human eyes for the first time, and called our home the Blue Planet. And it’s no surprise. 70% of our planet is covered with oceans. The remaining 30% is the solid ground, rising above sea level.
