Valentine’s Day Box Inspiration

Nothing says I love you more than a heart-shaped box filled with goodies -am I right?

Along with baking buttermilk pink donuts, I decided I’m going to start a tradition of giving my loves their own Valentine’s Day box each year. The idea came to me after giving Peyton her first box last year. I found a paper mache heart box at one of the craft stores (I forget which one, but here’s an option from Amazon) and spray painted it a light pink. I also painted a small wood heart cutout gold and glued it to the top of the box.

Now, Target’s dollar section makes it super easy to put a Valentine’s Day box together and depending on what you buy, it can cost less than $10 to put together (box and all!). I put Peyton’s box together yesterday and filled it with some stickers, heart-shaped chalk, a tic-tac-toe game, nail polish, a headband and a cute book. I have yet to put Emory’s box together, but plan on including a book, some sort of teething toy and maybe some teething crackers. His is super exciting! 🙂

As for my number one valentine, I won’t get into the details because he proofs my blog posts and unlike the other two, knows how to read.
