This year, our candy-free Valentine's Day gifts were inspired by my boys. It seems that they are constantly suffering from bumps, bruises, owies, growing pains, you name it. A bag of frozen pees, or a warm cloth is usually all they need to soothe the pain, and they are back playing in no time at all.
So why not make a reusable hot/cold pack that was ready for just such occasions?!
I have seen many versions of the rice hot/cold packs around the web (this is a cute one) and thought they would be perfect for my two little bruisers - and all of their school friends!
Adding a loop on the side keeps your fingers from touching the hot pack when it comes out of the microwave.
I printed the tags on white paper, cut them out, and then folded and stapled them to the bags.
super easy, super inexpensive, and super useful!
Here are some of my favorite candy-free gifts from around the web:
