diy ❤ valentine's day snack gifts

it's my first valentine's day as a wife. you'd think i'd get all mushy about it, maybe buy jeff a big stuffed bear that says "i love you" when you squeeze it or bake him an extra-large batch of heart-shaped cookies.


instead i almost forgot all about him. i got so caught up making *the perfect* valentine's gifts for evie's friends at daycare that it didn't cross my mind to do something for my husband, too (until yesterday; i have something up my sleeve now)!  

for evie's friends, i made a yummy snack mix and packaged it in a short 8oz mason jar with festive fabric and a homemade label.

in the mix:

frosted cheerios
strawberry shredded wheat
gerber yogurt melts

i hope the kiddos like it!

leave a little note!

  1. What a fun idea! They will LOVE their jars. Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. this is the absolute CUTEST idea! confession? things like this really make me look forward to having a little one someday

  5. Those are the cutest! I'm going to have to remember this idea when my daughter is old enough to have friends to make/buy gifts for!
    Can't wait to find out what you did for the hubs :)
