This week has been Secret Sister Week at work and it has been so much fun! We pick names and then for the week before Valentines, we bring the other person a little gift each day. It’s fun to figure out what to get and how to sneak it in so nobody can guess who you are! We only spend between $10-15, so a trip to the 99 Cent Store or the Dollar Tree was where I headed. I thought I would show you how you can buy a few small, inexpensive things and it can still be special.
The first day, I gave a small glass red polka-dotted milk bottle and filled it with peanut M & M’s. My Secret Sister had noted that her favorite color is red and her favorite candy were the M & M’s. I tied on a paper heart with her name on it.
The next day was a baseball theme. She likes the L.A. Dodgers, so the colors I chose were royal blue and red. I found a cool old-fashioned looking box of Cracker Jacks, a blue Gatorade, a box of chocolates with baseballs on the cover and a blingy blue keychain.
My Secret Sister also stated that she likes Disney and to cook and bake, so the baking aisle was my next destination. I picked up a box of cupcake mix, a couple of turquoise and white cupcake holders and some cute Mickey and Minnie Mouse cupcake liners.
The last day was the little Starbucks sandwich box that I covered with pretty Valentine paper. I showed how to make this box a couple of weeks ago here on the blog. You could use any box you have on hand. I will fill it with some heart-shaped sugar cookies.
I’m excited to let my Secret Sister know I had her name and find out how she liked all her gifts. I hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day!
Sunshine and Blessings, Pam
