Don’t have Valentine’s yet? Don’t panic! Here’s what we did this year, along with links for everything to make this as painless as possible! 😉
For the girls:
OB-sessed with these clips in general…but giving them out as Galentines? Genius! You can still order in time for V-day, so hurry over!
ZDOUGH: We gave this Zdough as favors at Q’s birthday party this summer and it was a hit! Each batch is handmade and is scented. We got strawberry flavored, custom stamped with a heart & I found these perfect “berry much” cards to go with them over at Minted. I linked them both below! Ardyn is giving these to her whole class.
COLOR MY WORLD: Since I did the clips for the girls in Q’s class, I needed something for the boys. I loved these cards I found on Minted and taped some crayons on the back to complete the gift. I added the “tic-tac-toe” option to the back of the cards to give the kiddos a little something extra to color! Linked below!
I opted for some personalized Initial stationary from Paper Source for our teachers this year. I went with their FIRST name initial so that they could use the set outside of the classroom! I bought the cards and envelopes and then bought a bunch of fun trimmings to wrap them up all cute. I then had the girls write a quick note to their teachers on the little red heart cards, stuck them in the pink envelopes they came with, stuck an xoxo stamp on the envelope and then slid that into the back of the stationary bundle. I linked everything below. 🙂
(You can go as crazy or as simple with this as you want with decorating the stationary bundle. I linked everything we used below!)
Colored Twine |Paper (similar) I bought one sheet and cut it in thin strips to wrap around the stationary bundle for a pretty pop of color |Gold Foil Trim (Similar) | Valentine’s Day Stickers |Gold Heart Doillies |Red Heart Cards |XOXO stamp
And here are a few other ideas that we’ve done in years past:
“I heART you”
(I love this one! Completely handmade cards- we used index cards, I wrote out the words in sharpie and let Q go to town with her paints. Then I tied on some cheap water color paints, you can buy them HERE. This was one of my favorites for sure!)
Super easy: bought the applesauce pouches at target and had the cards made at Love Lucy Design
“Thanks a Latte”
Last year I ordered these cute cards, you can get a free printable HERE, glued on a cardboard coffee sleeve and stuck a Starbs GC inside each. A Teacher hit, for sure!

“In My Heart”
Two years ago I actually gifted Q’s teacher one of our favorite books, In My Heart. She wrote a message to her teacher inside and we wrapped it up all cute with supplies we found in the Target Dollar Section! This is a great (and sentimental) Valentine idea.
Thanks all I’ve got for now…so many cute ideas out there! I’d love to know what YOU are doing! Let me know in the comments below.
