    Question Do you buy anything for your children at Valentines?

    I usually get them a heart shaped box filled with Smarties or some kind of Candy and a card. We have a special supper with lots of pink, red and white decorations!

    This year it's all handmade. I'm going to make heart shaped cookies, brownies with pink icing etc.......food is good for the boys ,and maybe some coupons for the boys...... dd I'm going to make some kind of craft...going to check all the sites Sara listed.

    How about you?

    I'm going to make my daughter a heart shaped chocolate...
    and I am going to give her some cool retro looking strawberry shortcake sunglasses (1.50$)
    I'll also probably make her a big card out of computer paper.

    oh and definitely I'll try to make things like heart shaped pancakes, heart shaped sandwhiches, and all that

    I'll make them some heart shaped cookies for valentine's day. Then when the sales come on the next day, I usually like to pick them up a heart shaped box of chocolates or a little stuffed toy with a heart on it.

    This is the first year I'll buy something for ds. I'll probably get him a little heart shaped box of chocolates. He and I always make cookies together on Valentine's Day and we'll do that this year as well.

    I took Lori's frugal tip about buying candy after Christmas and using it for Valentine's. I bought some cute little bags at Walgreens for .79¢ for 30. I am going to fill them with red and silver kisses. I usually give them a heart shaped box of chocolates, but this year will be different.

    We do lots of heart shaped baking for Valentine's Day. We decorate the house, and have dinner on our good china with candles for the table.

    My mom always makes empire cookies for Valentines day...they are cookies with homemade jam in the middle, with a light icing and a little cherry on top. yummy

    I haven't been able to perfect her recipe yet, close but not just as good as mom's. LOL So, of course we 7 children leave those special tasks for mom and grandma!

    We usually make one another cards and write a sweet sentiment for each person on what makes them special in our lives.

    No store bought sugary junk with Easter around the corner.

    When Kohls had their 80% off sale I picked up a new outfit for everyone and Giselle lucked out-they had a pretty little sterling heart earings and necklace set that I picked up too. The party store here has helium baloons for .50 each so I will probably pick one up for each too.
