Valentine's Day Idea #2

This one is very confusing, but I promise you'll love it. It's basically like a mini scavenger hunt.. Think of it like the 12 Days of Christmas, but instead, it's the 7 Days of Valentine's.  This gift is great for long distance relationships or couples who aren't in the same place for this lovely day...

Take a weekly pill organizer. {I put decorative paper underneath each lid to jazz it up a bit}

The special Valentine will get one gift for every day of the week.  On whatever day it is, he will open the lid for that day and under each lid is a note.  This note is the "clue" and tells the special Valentine what gift he should open for the day.  {In my case, to make it more personal, I wrote a special personal note.  At the end of the note, I told him what box to open}  I filled each container with confetti and paper to make it more festive.

Each day, the Valentine will get a special take-out box filled with candy, confetti, and a fortune cookie.

In the fortune cookies are random love quotes.  On the back are "lucky numbers" that are dates significant to you and your Valentine.  {First kiss, anniversary, etc.}

 Once the fortune cookies {candy, confetti, etc.} are in the take-out boxes, close them up and individualize them somehow.  You can put a bow on one, a heart shaped candy on another.. get creative.  On one, I kissed a piece of paper and glued it to the top of the box.

Remember notes in the pill box?  They have the "clues" I was talking about earlier.  These clues tell the Valentine which box to open.  Example: "Open the box with the bow on top" or "Open the box with the candy heart".

Place everything in a box, and ship to your significant other. You can plan ahead and have it start the week before Valentine's, or it can be the gift that keeps the Valentine's spirit around for another week.  You can be the decider that.
