Valentine's Day Gifts Part 2

Here is Part II in our series on ideas for Valentines Day gifts and packaging.  The first one was our guest post last week on Vintage Pollyanna.  Sometimes I get stumped about what to give the special little people in my life (nieces, nephews, daughters).  In Part I, we gave you some ideas of how to package a thoughtful gift.  Today in Part 2, we're going to give you yet another idea!  


Here's what my nieces and daughters are getting from me for Valentines Day. 
But Shhh!  Don't ruin the surprise!

Start with one cute container. You can find these at Jo-Ann's, Michaels and even Target. 


Add some candy hearts, a ring pop, Valentine bracelets, and lots of stickers.


Put it all together!


Wrap in cellophane, tie with a bow, attach handmade gift tag (member these?) and add a little cup. 
 Your little sweetheart would surely love a little treat like this.


Now, that takes care of the girls.
Here's what baby Coleman is getting.
Three Valentine board books wrapped with a sweet grosgrain ribbon and handmade gift tag.



And here's Maeve sound asleep while I craft and sew. Nursery school does that to a girl!

Anything wrapped in cellophane gets my vote for awesome! These are so sweet. And why haven't I ordered those stamp letters yet???
