Valentine Gift Ideas

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!  I wanted to share the treats that sweet pea and I whipped up for her teachers and classmates for this festive occasion.  First up are the teacher gifts.  I saw the idea of making a hot chocolate basket over at Amanda's blog Dixie Delights, so I can't take credit for this clever idea.  I made a trip to the Dollar Tree and picked up 2 mugs (instead of baskets), basket filler, marshmallows and some treat bags.  The hot chocolate packets I already had on hand, and then I whipped up some stirring spoons with things I already had as well, so this project only ended up costing me like $1.50 per mug!!

We attached one of her Valentine's to the bag, and viola there you have it!

 For her classmates we decided to make heart shaped rice krispie treats.  When they were cooled and cut, I dipped them in white chocolate and then sweet pea decorated them with some Valentine's sprinkles picked up in the dollar spot at Target.

I packaged them in clear cups from Dollar Tree, filled with basket filler and cupcake liners also picked up in the dollar spot at Target. (I love me some Target dollar spot!)

 Then they were placed in the treat bags and tied with dollar spot bakers twine and a Valentine.  Aren't they cute!!

Sweets was so excited to go to school today and hand out her treats.  She has had a cough for the past couple of days, so I was back and forth on whether or not to let her go, but I just couldn't break her little heart.  Hopefully she doesn't cough all over everyone!

Hubby and I have plans to go to dinner and see a movie tonight, so I am really excited.  Mom is coming  over to spend the night with sweet pea while we go out, so of course sweets is pumped to hang out with Nana.  Hope everyone has a wonderful love filled day, and I will be back later with a recap of our Valentine's celebration.  Until then, see ya later!!
