Boxman Valentine's DayU-Haul Boxman is in a festive mood this week. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, he dressed up as Cupid and has been busy playing matchmaker for U-Haul customers—matching them up with the perfect U-Haul boxes and moving supplies that they’ll absolutely love! This Boxman was featured at U-Haul Moving and Storage of Janesville, Wisconsin. Look at those legs! Boxman, have you been working out?

Gift ideas

By now, you’re probably tired of seeing and hearing commercials imploring you to buy jewelry, flowers, chocolates, berries, pajamas and many other things for your sweetie. This year, why not make something for your Valentine? After all, gifts that you make yourself are sure to mean a lot more than something you were pressured to buy at the mall.

You’d be surprised at all of the ideas you can come up with using U-Haul moving supplies. Don’t want to spend $40 on a dozen roses that will die in a few days? Why not make your dearest some paper flowers out of U-Haul packing paper? It’s much more personal and lasts longer than store-bought flowers.

Moving supplies gift wrapWhatever you decide to make, you can even add a personal touch to how you wrap it. Write a special message on the package, or even better, have kids draw a special picture on it. The wrapping paper will be just as special as the gift you give! Also, mover’s stretch plastic wrap can make a gift bag really shine, and the small Enviro-Bubble is great for wrapping odd-shaped gifts like wine or champagne bottles.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
