Tickled Pink: Themed Valentine Gift Bags

For Valentine’s Day, I wanted to do a little something special for my son’s teacher, assistant teacher and bus driver (or, as I like to call her, the transporter of precious cargo). We are so blessed to have all three of these women in our lives – they go above and beyond in their duties and, as a momma, my heart could not be more thankful.

I came across the “tickled pink” idea while searching through Pinterest – small gift baskets/bags stuffed with a few little treasures, all in lovely shades of pink. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Here’s what I found for their bags (all PINK, of course!):

Fuzzy socks
Strawberry Starbursts
Hershey Kisses
Coffee mugs


Ideally, I was searching for small, reusable pink baskets to hold all these goodies but couldn’t find any that I loved, so I just stuck with gift bags. I also grabbed some pink shredded paper to line the bags.

I wrote a little note on foam hearts, punched a couple holes in them, and threaded some festive string through to tie onto the bags.



Here’s a little peek at what the inside of the assembled bags looked like:



Some other ideas for a color-themed bag could include:

Office supplies (markers, pens, notebooks, paperclips, stickers)
Nail polish
Lip balm
Lotions/shower gels
Small home/desk decor

I had a lot of fun putting these gifts together, and I hope the recipients are tickled pink with their treats!
