Last Minute Valentine's Gifts
It is not too late to get a bit festive for Valentine's Day. I adore this day as a celebration of compassion and friendship. I wanted to bring a bit of that flavor and energy into my family's life. I didn't do anything crazy crafty, nor did I spend lots of money on our Valentine's Gifts for teachers and friends. Check out below to see what we did for our Valentine's Gifts.
Valentine's Gifts For Teachers
I can't take credit for this Valentine's gift idea. Thank you Pinterest for giving me a moment of creative crafty talent. This one is super simple. All you need is: a mason jar, a printer to print a free printable, scissors and chocolate to fill the mason jar. I added pink card stock to the name tag and mixed red glitter with mod podge for a fun coating for the mason jar. Neither of those touches are at all necessary. Here is the original Valentine's Teacher Gift post from Lil' Mrs. Tori.
Valentine's Gifts For Friends
Again, no credit taken here. I found this awesome idea and free printable on, yup, Pinterest. The original Valentine's Day post can be found on SwellChel, a wonderful blog I encourage all of you to check out. Again, super simple. I ordered the Small Cellophane Treat Bags from Amazon, printed the free printable at the library for – ah-hem – free, cut out the labels with craft scissors, backed the labels with red card stock and a glue stick (not necessary at all), ordered the Mini Dinosaurs from Safari, and stapled the bags to the label. Pretty simple even for this not so crafty lady. Trust me. You can do this project tonight. Easy. Get your children involved in the process. My 4.5 year old loves the glue stick and the stapler.
That is that. Happy Valentine's Day! Celebrate love and compassion with your family and friends!
