Let’s face it, finding the perfect Valentine to give can be stressful for anyone. For kids, getting it right can cause a little more anxiety, especially when funds are a little low. Fortunately, there are ways that you can help, by making a great Valentine gift without breaking the piggy bank. How? By recycling (or upcycling) what you already have.
Hit the recycling bin for small jars, wash and dry and fill with little treats - they don’t have to be candy – a single perfect chocolate goodie, little trinkets, even messages are fun, too. Use cupcake liners to cover the lids and whatever ribbons you have on hand. No cupcake liners? Just cut out rounds of any colourful paper you have on hand instead.
And why not dress up that Valentine gift with a cute gift tag to make it that much more special. No need to buy any, use plastic and paper tags you get at the grocery store instead (from bread and fruit produce). Just cut out and glue pieces of colourful paper to cover the tags and you’ve got the perfect, easy gift label.
