VALENTINE GOODIE GRAM


My husband and I don't usually do big lavish Valentines gifts, we save those for birthdays and Christmas but I am a creative gift giver so I'd like to think outside the box a little bit! This idea is from an anniversary a couple years ago but it would be perfect for Valentine's Day coming up for a husband, for your kids, or even a friend! I assembled all these goodies in a black oval metal basket I found at Hobby Lobby and just added some ribbon and a printed dolled up sign. 
(by dolled up I mean glued to card stock and using pinking shears, lol) 

When I used it for our anniversary after all the goodies were devoured


Little red tissue paper for filler and you're good to go.





Some of the GOODIES I put in Mr. NINE'S basket and the sayings that went along with them:








This idea is all mine and I just used a picture from clipart


Butterfinger - Life is BUTTER with you by my side, so glad to have this ring on my FINGER
Snickers - I Love your laugh and your SNICKERS
Gummy bears - Life would be "unBEARable"without you
Mint - We were MINT to be together 
Hot tamales - You are one HOT tamale
Nuts - I'm NUTS about you 
Reese Pieces - I love every little PIECE of you 
Breath strips - You still take my BREATH away
Combos - We make a great COMBO
Good and Plenty - Today is a GOOD day and PLENTY of good times are here to stay
Sugar Babies -  Give me some SUGAR, BABY

Now, here is a secret one for hubs..on a SKOR candy bar..get your mind outta the gutter, just means he's gonna eat a Skor, wink wink


The PRINTABLES
I used a few of my own, these Love Notes Candy Bar Printable's and printed here below on either white paper or cardstock and used pinking shears to cut them out.

You could also spread these little gifts out and give one per day the 14 days leading up to Valentine's Day. I just happen to love putting Gift Baskets together.

Happy Monday Loves!!

  29. If I made this I'm pretty sure I'd end up eating most of it because Michael doesn't even like sweets that much. But that makes me even more tempted to make it... Ha!
