Sweet Candy Gift Ideas :: Valentine’s Day Ideas

Share To:

Hello my loves! I am so sorry I’ve been missing from the blog this week. I had big plans of prepping posts to easily hit “publish” on each day this week while I was attending ALT Design Summit and the Explore Cricut event but clearly that didn’t work out as planned. We (Ariana + I) had an incredible week here in Salt Lake City and I can’t wait to share a recap of the events. You can check out peeks from the week on Instagram (@tomkatstudio), including the gorgeous all-white candy table we styled in the Cricut lounge at ALT. How back to blogging…

We have so many new, cute Valentine’s Day ideas to share with you this year that we created for DIY Network! You may have seen our giant heart balloon post earlier this week which would be so cute to surprise someone with! Today I am sharing two ideas for giving out candy for Valentine’s Day! I mean, what would Valentine’s Day be with out candy?!


One easy idea is to fill a cute paper bag with Hershey’s kisses and attach a cute glittered heart and tag. We used foam adhesive dots to give the heart dimension. Find the printable heart template and Sweet Kisses tag on DIY Network here.


Another cute idea is to hand out rock candy sticks with a cute “You Rock” tag attached. If the kids are taking them to school, place them in a clear cellophane bag and tie with ribbon. Find the free printable You Rock tags on DIY Network here.

    […] TomKat Studio has some really cute ideas for giving candy this Valentine’s Day, including a sweet FREE printable to attach to rock candy.  This would be super easy to make as favors for a Valentine’s Day party or to give to a favorite teacher or friend, provided you can find some rock candy lollipops.  Or…if you are REALLY ambitious and want to create a little science experiment in your kitchen, you can MAKE rock candy with your kids (or by yourself…maybe with a glass of Merlot for good measure).  Here is the recipe for rock sugar candy lollipops – it doesn’t look too confusing, but maybe read through it a couple times before you start!
