I think birthdays are one of the most important holidays of the year. I enjoy making custom gifts for friends and family, and this Ice Cream Sundae Birthday Gift Box is a sweet way to celebrate them on their special day! It's the perfect gift for those who don't often take the time treat themselves, or a way to virtually share a dessert when you can't be together.

My daughter and I took our first trip to As You Wish this last week and had a blast! After scouring all the products in the studio, this adorable ice cream cone bowl caught my eye and knew it would make the perfect addition to the gift box. Even if you feel that you aren't "artsy", painting this bowl is easy and most importantly, FUN! The As You Wish staff are also there to help you if you need inspiration or painting tips. Plus, the paints, brushes, and anything else you need are provided so you don't need to bring anything but your creativity.

I mixed a couple of colors to paint the cone, then chose a chocolatey brown to make it appear that chocolate was dripping over the side of the bowl. Puffy paints were used to add some raised, three-dimensional sprinkles to the inside!

Once the paints were dry, I left the bowl with the As You Wish staff to do the dirty work of glazing and firing the project in a kiln.

After a couple of days, my bowl was ready to be picked up in the studio. It turned out even better than I imagined. Dishes like this one are dishwasher safe and can be filled with ice cream for years to come. Since it is hand-painted, it really makes the gift more unique and memorable.

Now that the main part of the gift is done, you need a few more supplies to complete the gift box. Choose ice cream toppings your gift recipient enjoys. I purchased caramel and hot fudge toppings, and used smaller jars to hold crushed Oreos, peanuts, and of course sprinkles! A sundae isn't a sundae without a cherry on top, so don't forget to add those! You can also add in a cute spoon or ice cream scoop.

I lined a large box (about the size of a shoe box) with multi-colored tissue paper and arranged all the items to fit. If you are shipping the box, make sure to add some wrap around each product so the glass jars and bowl won't break!!

To complete the gift box, print out the Free Printable Birthday Card on cardstock and place it inside or on top of the box along with a cute and colorful bow!

If you don't want to make a gift box, this card can also be paired with the ice cream bowl and a gift card to an ice cream parlor!
