Valentine’s Day is coming soon and although it’s “traditionally” celebrated between romantic sweethearts – it’s 2016! These days it’s just as common to give a small token of affection to your child, a classmate or co-worker! No need to be expensive or flashy, just a sweet gesture to show someone you’re thinking of them will do the trick. Here at HEXBUG we’re all about being innovative while thinking of creative solutions; and that mentality applies to Valentine’s Day as well! Show your Valentine that you’re on their mind, with a “Love Bug” from you, to them!
Save 20% CODE: LOVEBUGS **Valid until February 19, 2016**
This is a super inexpensive DIY craft project that should take no longer than an hour (depending upon how crazy you go with the embellishments) and only set you back just a few dollars.
Bonus! Everyone has a mason jar laying around their house, now you can find a good use for it. And if the lid happens to have writing or a logo on it, spruce it up with some red or pink paint!
Materials you’ll need:
Hersey Kisses ($3.57 a bag, Walmart)
Red or Pink colored paper shred (around one dollar per bag)
Mason Jar (Between $3.00 – $4.00)
- Fill your jar with paper shred, but don’t go too crazy. You still need to save some room for the good stuff. We like to mix the red and pink to give off a traditional Valentine’s Day vibe!
- Satisfy the sweet tooth – add a layer of candy to your jar. The choice is yours! Brightly foiled Valentine’s Day Hershey Kisses were the go-to holiday treat for us. But if you know your special someone’s favorite candy, use that instead for an added personal touch. It’s all about the details.
- Add a note, a small hand-written “hello” or friendly message. Not only does this identify who this gift was from, it’s your opportunity to mention how special that person is to you.
- Lastly, add HEXBUG nanos! As a special gift from us, use the code “LOVEBUGS” to receive 20% off your purchase. We recommend including two nanos to fill your jar (so no one is alone on Valentine’s Day), but one works too! These zippy little “lovebugs” are a cute, playful gift that will definitely bring a smile to your Valentine’s face. Twist on the lid, and get prepare to give your sweetheart this adorably inexpensive gift!
Optional bonus touch: If you have a few extra dollars to spend, consider adding strand of LED string lights ($6.99, Michaels) to your jar – they’ll add a firefly twinkle to this gift, as well as an additional “wow” factor!
Have a fantastic Valentine’s Day!
