Are you looking for some quick and easy Valentine ideas? Here are three super cute and super fast dollar store Valentine gift ideas you can use for teacher gifts, classroom Valentines, or for giving to your own kids on Valentine’s Day…
Valentine’s Day sure has changed over the past few decades.
I don’t remember it being nearly as big of a deal when I was a kid as it is now.
Sure, we all wrote out simple Valentines for each of our classmates. Most of us used Valentines from a box and a couple kids got “fancy” and cut hearts out of red construction paper. And I do remember paper lace doilies being involved in classroom decorations.
But when you look at Pinterest and the incredible thought and time that parents are now putting into Valentine’s Day, it is a completely different world.
I am pretty sure my mom never sat down to come up with a one of a kind Valentine and then spent hours helping us assemble them. And I am darn sure sure she never gave us kids Valentine’s gifts.
Yes, things are a lot fancier in this new pretty-as-Pinterest world.
And I don’t really mind. I actually love spoiling my kids with some extra love on Valentine’s Day, coming up with special treats and making up Valentine’s packages for them.
I like making life a bit more special when I can.
BUT, I am also crazy busy and always behind schedule.
