Brown Paper Packages

...all tied up with string. These are a few of my favorite things!
Cooked up something fun for this Valentine's with the help of this. W gets to open a small treat every hour at 14 past the hour during his full day at work. And yes, his goodies are in way girly wrapping. One of them even has a polka-dot ribbon. ;) I put all his little gifts in a giant basket and even included a red felt puffy conversation heart that said "Love U". Total cheese!

We usually don't do anything too out of the ordinary for love day. Don't really exchange gifts. Last year, it was a delicious dinner made by W. This year, he's working a 10 hour day. I thought it was a perfect opportunity to do a little something extra for him. Just small gifts: candy, small random items that he'll like, a new shirt, a new toy for him and E to play with, and a few gift cards with small amounts to some of his favorite places.

Doing anything special with the one you love?

How sweet! What a fun idea! Matt has something up his sleeve for tonight, and I cannot wait to find out what it is! I got him a cd and made him some cookies + candies!

Love it!! I've recently started buying brown paper to wrap gifts in and let the kids decorate it. So fun!
