Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas and a Giveaway #bakerybecause


As a mom of two, I love having time with my husband but it isn’t always to get out. This year we decided to create our own Valentine’s Day at home by cooking and enjoying a movie together. For dessert, I am going to surprise him by giving him a sweet treat that I found from Rich Products right in the bakery section in our local grocery store. I am also going to be giving this special Valentine’s Day bundle to my daughters with the inclusion of a stickers and a special note.

As someone with a sweet tooth, I knew he will love the cookies, brownies, cookies, cinnamon rolls, cupcakes and small cakes that I found but this year I wanted to do something a little different by packaging the products into something personalized by making my own goodie bags. Using some craft supplies and the help from Pinterest, I created a simple, easy, delicious and affordable gift that will make the day extra special.

How I did this was simple.


Red and white, paint
Pink tissue paper
Brown lunch bags
cookies, cakes, brownies, etc
Other ideas: stickers, stamps, markers for decorating the front of the bags.

1. Use paper lunch bags and paint the bottom of them by making heart dots on the bottom (inspiried from Clumsy Crafter) of the bag using the eraser of a pencil with red paint.

2. Write something like ‘I Heart You’ or ‘Sweets for Someone Sweet.’

3. After the paint dries, cut off the top part of the bag and then line it with pink tissue paper.

4. Place in the various baked goods, a love note and stickers (for the girls).

5. Use a ribbon to tie the bag together and done!

Not only for husband and kids, this super simple and special gift idea is an easy way to show the special people your lives such as your babysitter to your neighbor or co-workers, how much you mean to them. It was also really fun to create something personal while also not using intricate supplies and simply going to your grocer’s bakery!

    My husband and two kids are the special people in my life. My husband gets my daughter up and ready for school so I have more time to get myself ready before taking her to school. My daughter is my mini-me and she is just so much fun. She is a competitive dancer and I just love watching her shine through her talents! My son is 2 and he is just as fun. He helps me to stop what I’m doing and just enjoy watching him play and grow up. They are all so special to me and they will all be getting Valentine’s from me this year!!! 🙂

    I have two people that make my day special every day. First is my precious four year old son, Hanan. He gives me so many hugs and kisses and snuggles. I am blessed to have that doodlebug. I love him so very much. The second person is my sweet, sweet husband, Jake. He and I got married a year ago Feb. 16. He has stepped up in the roll of husband and dad after my very bad first marriage and there aren’t enough words to describe how incredible he has been. He loves Hanan like he is his own and he loves me like in a way I didn’t know was possible. To say I am lucky doesn’t even cut it. I am blessed beyond measure and that is the truth!
