You could put some small peices of candy inside. Check out http://www.candywharehouse.com for affordable candy in bulk!

Are you carving your initials or guests initials? It’s really cute but I dont know if I would want something with someone elses initials on it.

Those boxes are so cute. If they weren’t all the way from Thailand then I’d want to get them too!  I think 1-2 Ferrerro Rochers would be good to put in them.

Maybe hand carve Love or the heart and arrow on the side of the boxes and your initials on the bottom of the box so that people will want to use them for their own personal use in homes for rings or jewelry or whatever.

You could include this poem on a scroll pf paper:

This is a very special gift

That you can never see

The reason it’s so special is

It’s just for you from me.(we)

Whenever you are lonely

Or are ever feeling blue

You only have to hold this gift

And know I’m(we’re) hugging you.

You never can unwrap it

Please leave the ribbon tied

Just hold the box close to your heart

It’s filled with hugs inside.

If you are not too hung up on grammar, you could make the changes I placed in parentheses.

Then sign it from the two of you.

@dotdotdoodlebot: I agree that, while it’s super adorable, I wouldn’t take one if it had your initials on it. (however if it had my own, I’d have it in a heartbeat!)

You could put a flower in each one, with the stem cut very short… or just flower petals!

That is adorable!!! I love them! What about conversation hearts or some kind of candy from your childhood? When I see carved trees like that I think of fun cute young kind of love you know, so an old school candy would be really suiting!
