Valentine Box Ideas

DIY Valentine Box Ideas with Free Printables!

Valentine’s Day is coming up, and if you’re looking for some fun, frugal gift ideas for a Valentine’s Party or to hand out to friends, teachers or co-workers, we have a cute free printable for a couple of ideas for Valentines boxes. Most of these are perfect for small gifts for teachers or to hand out to other kids. The one at the bottom can be scaled up to make a Valentines box to use to hold cards passed out in classrooms too.

I love these, as you can use them to plan ahead, or if you need a quick last minute idea, print them out from home and fill them with something nice you might have around the house. Although they are perfect for Valentines day, you can use them year around for a nice way to present a gift to someone. You can also fill them with candy, or if you are looking for a candy alternative for Valentines day, you can fill them with candles or coffee cards for teachers, or small toys and stickers for kids, etc too.

For the first two, just print this off, fold & adhere it together and fill with goodies! You can fill it with candies, stickers, and other treats for kids or maybe some fun coffee or hot cocoa packs, chocolates and bath & body goodies for adults. These are so fun & cute to give as gifts & simple to put together! My kind of gift to give!
