Okay, I’m super late with this one, but let’s roll with it. Despite my busy schedule, I’m still coming with the content. Thanks to all those that read and comment. I greatly appreciate it. The content isn’t stopping, it’s just a matter of me uploading, so rock with me. This post is all about a super quick Valentine’s gift that I gave to my sisters and my brother. It can really work for anytime of year and most importantly, it doesn’t break the bank.
I went to AC Moore with my grandmother this past weekend simply to get some ephemera I had saw on Instagram. More planner shit, I know. I love it though so it is what it is. Thankfully I found what I was looking for and I came across these bags on the way out that were on sale 3/$10. Typically I would pass right by them, but my grandmother suggested they’d be cute for my sisters. I got the ‘B’ for initial of my second youngest sister and for my baby sis I got ‘Don’t let anyone ever dull your sparkle.’ As for the one I got myself, ‘There is always something to be thankful for.’
Now for the easy part, what to fill them with. If I was sending these to a planner friend I’d fill it with stickers and a DIY of some sort. My sisters aren’t into that, so candy does the trick. I went to Dollar Tree and got some Starbursts, Life Saver gummies, Swedish Fish, tootsie rolls, and of course, chocolate. To make sure everything fit inside, I ditched the packaging. Pretty self explanatory.My brother had to get something as well and I used the packaging of the candy as a structure for his gift. I stacked them together and held it in place with tape.
If these gifts were for anyone else, I’d go all out with the cards, but my siblings could care less. I took Target greeting cards from the one spot, ripped them in half and wrote the message on the blank side. This gift was super easy, took less than 15 minutes to throw together, and was well under $10 per person.
