A Quick and Easy Valentine’s Day Gift Idea

I’m always a fan of cute, easy (and inexpensive) gift ideas, so today I’m sharing exactly that –  a Valentine’s Day gift idea that doesn’t break the bank, but is a crowd pleaser.  The added bonus is that it combines candy and flowers in one fell swoop.  What’s not to like?  It’s a great gift idea for a hostess, a teacher, a friend, or for your sweetheart.  It’s candy and flowers in a non-traditional way, and it’s a lot prettier too.  This post contains some affiliate links.

The great thing about this gift is that it is pretty and something that is still a traditional Valentine’s Day gift idea, but it doesn’t break the budget.  And, it’s really simple to make, but it looks like you have some magic craft skills that will surely impress your Valentine. Easy Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

What you need:

Then fill the inside vase with water and arrange your flowers.  I scored these amazing tulips through a local florist who always has great deals – two big bunches for $20!

    So pretty and fun!! Wish I could do that in my own house, but the 13 year old would eat all the candy!! Seriously – even if I tell him it's poisoned! 🙂

    Oh, good thing you explained how the flower vase looked that way… Some people might get confused with how you did the arrangement using M&M's. The design looks so colorful and sweet, btw. You should've put green M&M's too. They would match the leaves of the flowers. 😀
