Leave Your Child an “I Love You Note” with Lunchbox Notes #giveaway #backtoschool

by Jennifer Sikora

Jennifer here to share with you about the cutest little lunchbox notes I have ever seen. We were compensated to share this post with you, however, all opinions remain our own.


When my kids were little, I used to always make sure to leave them something special in their lunchbox. I would write out a note just how much I loved them and that I hope they had a great day at school. If they had a test that day, I made sure to let them know I was praying for them.

I never realized how important those notes were to  my kids until one day I forgot to put a note in my son’s luunchbox. When he got in the car that afternoon, he looked sad. I asked him what was wrong and he said, “Mom! You didn’t give me a love note today in my lunchbox!”

I knew right then and there that I would never forget again. He looked forward to that encouragement every single day.

Good Buddy Notes has an adorable product that will do the same thing — Lunchbox Notes.

Lunchbox Notes

Lunchbox Notes, 5 charmingly illustrated notes are great for tucking a note of encouragement, good luck or love in a child’s lunchbox, backpack or a book. The illustrations on the notes by artist Shelley Dieterichs depict fun scenes of children and pets at play. There are 5 notes and small envelopes in each package.

These are super cute and would make any child smile to see a note from their mom or dad with an encouraging saying!

Love this! My mom always put little “i love you” notes in my lunchbox. I cannot wait to pack Pip’s lunch with Love.

I will be doing this from now on and think it is wonderful.

Yes, but I desperately need these. I had one in my sons lunch box every lunch until the end of school. And, I would hand draw something cute everyday. These would be nice, because now I will have two in school.

Thanks, Cindi

19 The Gang's Momma August 28, 2013 at 1:45 pm

I don’t, mostly because about two years ago we made the lunch making part of the nightly job routine and it’s been taken over by the kids. But I think these would be sweet for my new 1st grader who is SO! EXCITED! to finally be old enough to eat at school!!!!


20 Benita August 28, 2013 at 2:30 pm

My daughter has just started to take her lunch this year so I haven’t had a chance to put in a note in her lunch. Excited to do so this year!


25 Darlene Arnold August 30, 2013 at 12:35 pm

I haven’t left any for my granddaughter, but I pack her lunch every morning and have been thinking how nice it would be to put her a little note in there.
