“I think the best thing is to let the creator of Box Of Favours Ben Saunders explaining where the idea came from in the first place and how the first Box Of Favours was received!” InTouch Rugby Lifestyle Editor
A few years ago I was living in London and was self-employed. Between jobs I would have a lot of free time on my hands. My flatmate however had just got a job as a primary school teacher and had no time what so ever.
She would often come back from work stressed out. Walk straight to her room, spend the rest of the evening marking books and then go to sleep.
I knew it was her birthday coming up in a few days and I didn’t know what to get her as a present. I asked her if she wanted to go for some food but she said she just didn’t have time. When I asked her why she told me that she had to do her laundry, finish the washing up, make food etc.
I went away and thought about what she had said. I had time to help her out around the house so maybe I could just do her a few favours as a gift. I looked online to find something suitable but found nothing.
So the next day I got to work making a Box of Favours.
It was my flatmates birthday and I gave her the small box after she came home from work. She opened it up and started reading the favour cards getting more and more excited with each one she saw.
By the end of reading the last favour she was almost in tears, she came and gave me a big hug and said it was one of the most thoughtful gifts anyone has ever given her.
One of the best bits about doing the favours was actually getting to hang out and spend time together. I felt great because I was helping her out and she was getting more time to relax and enjoy herself.
She still maintains to this day that it was the best present she has ever received.
