Family Valentine's Crush Gift Idea

Family Valentine's Crush Gift Idea

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!! Here is a unique 'DOUBLE' family size/ style twist of my Valentine's Crush Gift post that you can quickly and easily put together today!! Family Valentine's Crush Gift idea. As I've said before this type of gift is SO fun and versatile, for anyone, for any occasion, this is it!! There have been many variations made after I originally posted my Crush post several years ago {below} but SWEETHAUTE was the original OG Blogger to share it with the world. I continue to use this method of gifting because it SO GOOD for any age, type of person...you merely adjust to that person's taste and style, colors, and theme. 

These gift ideas are so SWEET, unique, and cute! It is inexpensive to make and can be put together quickly. If you make one please tag me and if you use my idea(s) be sure to give my blog credit. Thank you, period.
I really enjoy making DIY Valentine's Day and homemade gifts for loved ones.

DONE.
This time I used 2 Four Packs so I could fit the 'Heart Box' of Chocolates. Use clear packing tape to stabilize the cases and they are to be used as balloon base, or travel with. I didn't wrap in cellophane because I didn't have any on hand at the time. I added Bubbles and Stickers with the cute candies!!

#80sBaby Shutter Sunnies... baby Yoda Candy Valentines!

We use the Cream Soda to make Floats after we {as a family} opened the gift...see what I did, multi-taskin!!

This family 'Crush' soda gift is actually a throwback and a remix on my original post, an alternative to an Easter Basket in which I share my first {Message n' a Bottle} Easter related grape Crush Soda Gift....way back in the day when I rarely blogged, as a hobby. And I mean rarely, like once a YEAR lol. Back when my small kids were very, very young and almost...well newborn. So that just tells you why I couldn't really blog at that time:) and I didn't know what 'blogging' was. I had just really shared it to my friends and fam. Since then, boy have things changed around here since our kids have gotten a little older!

Supplies:

    -six pack of any soda
Cream Soda -for floats etc.
Balloons Bouquet 
Jelly Beans
   -Valentines Mix/ Conversation
Cellophane Wrap
Cardstock White Paper
   - or use white printer paper
Scissors
Hole Punch
Tape
Fruit Snacks
Skateboard /Fingerboard
Stickers
Clear Packing Tape

This gift project is pretty self explanatory, yet here's how I did it just in case I can help:)

Step 1:

Buy and gather your supplies, you can find everything at your local retail, grocery store, and dollar store. Cellophane can be found in wrapping paper, cards, gift bag isle.

Step 2:

'Stuff' your six pack of soda with Valentine's Day snacks and goods. Use glue dots or tape to keep your snacks from shifting inside of gift packaging. This is helpful if you are taking your gift somewhere, this ensures all the goodies are visible under the cellophane and don't fall down into case. To make the Valentines DIY Heart Lollipops yourself head over to this post here.

Step 3:

Print out your FREE Valentines Day Printables {use link} with card stock, for best results,....but you can still use regular printer paper too:) if that is what you have on hand! Use those printables to decorate your straws, bottles, and lollipops. You can also use the bottle printables for cupcake toppers instead or in addition if you are making cupcakes for an event.

Step 4:

Wrap it up in cellophane wrap if big enough, if not, wrap individually and then tape the base of the soda cases together. This only needs to be done if using as a balloon base and/or traveling with it to gift someone. Tie with a beautiful luxurious ribbon and add a gift tag for your Crush on the outside! The straw flags also have cute saying on them about 'Crush' to go with the theme of the soda pack.





And it's a perfect functional weight for your bouquet of balloons as well so you wont need to buy the concrete piece wrapped in shiny paper...

Brighten someone's cloudy day, Valentine's Day, Galentine's Day with this idea!!

Message n' a Bottle by SWEET HAUTE 

Original person to make a 'sixpack' soda post in Blogland, maybe you remember seeing it. I know a lot of people made their own version after I posted this.
LOL and if I remember at the time, I was one of the first people to also post a quad of pictures...actual original picture above. I was already accustomed to making collages for my work and I wondered why more people weren't doing that in link parties {circa 2013}. I think Picnic was the free software then {instead of Canva/ Picmonkey}, if not using Photoshop. Again, this was back a long time ago...but wow has blogging come a long way since then. Now collages are an everyday thing and a standard in blogging.

Jordan Knight Day Tribute VLOG

Jordan Knight Day Tribute VLOG 

 Today is Jordan Knight Day, the lead singer from New Kids on the Block NKOTB. February 7th is officially Jordan Knight Day, how many other celebrities/singers have their own day created in their honor?! Well Boston, MA made that happen and I want to wish a happy JK day since he was and always will be my first boyband favorite singer! I already had really liked Madonna and Michael Jackson prior to NKOTB, but then moved on to Mariah Carey, Boys II Men, + Jodeci. I just love music in general...but no one will ever be the first boyband idols like NKOTB or have their own day!!
Here are some really, really, REALLY cool stories about Jordan Knight to honor him on his namesake day! Check it out...
