Remember in elementary school when everybody got Valentines?
I do. Even though you’re all grown up, Valentines still make you feel good. It’s easy to bring back that old school tradish, and you don’t even have to spend a lot… it’s all about the packaging hunty. Here’s how to throw together an adorable V-Day gift bucket.
You’ll need some sort of gift box/basket/bucket. Target has a lot of cute options in the $1 section, I love these little buckets… so that’s what I went with. The Valentine’s Day buckets were to cliché for me, so I jazzed up a regular pink one.
I used a heart stamper that I had from Michael’s ($3), painters tape, and a gold leafing pen. Good idea, but I should’ve used nail polish instead of a gold leafing pen. The pen leaked under the tape, and it made my hearts a little messy. If you don’t want to fancify your bucket, that’s ok.
You’ll need some type of filler for your bucket. I like to use kisses because they’re all wrapped, so each kiss is germ free… just the way I like them. You could really use any type of candy, or even tissue paper.
Then you’ll need a few little gifts. Once again, check out Target’s $1 section. Bath products are always a good idea, everyone loves a bath. You know what else everyone loves?… Alcohol. Grab a tiny bottle, Van Gough makes a dutch chocolate flavor that’s perfect for V-Day.
Don’t forget to add something fun.
Top it off with something pretty.
I was able to put each bucket together for $6 per bucket. Here’s the breakdown…
- Bucket = $1
- Bag of kisses = $3 (1 bag was enough for 3 buckets)
- E.L.F. All Over Stick = $1
- Sleep mask = $1
- Bath salts = $1
- Mini Van Gough = $2
These little buckets make amazing gifts for friends or coworkers. Not only are they beautimous, but they’ll brighten up anyones V-Day.
