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.
What you need:
- Two vases of the same shape in different sizes (so that one fits comfortably within the other)
- Two bags of Valentine’s Day M&M’s, Conversation Hearts, Red Hots, etc… You choose your favorite. Conversation Hearts would be adorable too. (Yes, I used two bags of M&M’s, despite the fact that there is only one in the picture)
- Flowers of your choice – I chose a selection of red, pink and white tulips to match the M&M’s.
Place the smaller vase inside the larger one and then fill the gap between the two vases with the candy.
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!
Enjoy them yourself or give them to your Valentine. 🙂
