Over the years I have watched my children grow from tiny little rambunctious bundles of joy to amazing teenagers, and now to the young adult stage. Even as old as they are, I love surprising them with little gifts on holidays. This year is no exception.
With the help of Hershey’s this year, I am planning on making my kids’ Valentine’s Day extra special with a #HSYMessageOfLove. Regardless of whether you have little ones or older ones like I have, you can make them feel special and loved with a gift basket.
I mean, think about it — when Easter rolls around, those gift baskets full of candies and toys make your kids squeal with delight right? Why not do the same thing on Valentine’s Day?
This year, I am putting together Valentine’s Day baskets for teenagers filled with fun Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Hearts filled with Caramel and Reese’s Peanut Butter 5 oz. Heart chocolate as well as a few other goodies.
I am making each basket specific to each child and adding in a few of my own touches as well. For example —
For my son’s basket, he LOVES Hershey’s Milk Chocolate anything, and Hershey Kisses, so I made sure to fill his basket full of those things.
He also loves watching movies and playing video games, so I included a couple of 80’s movies and some popcorn as well as a gaming card to his favorite video game store.
For my daughter, she is a coffee lover like her mom and she loves to draw, so in her basket I included a travel sketch pad, a new coffee mug that I picked up at the local dollar store, her favorite chocolates from Hershey’s and Jolly Rancher suckers.
She loves taking the smaller Hershey Kisses and places one in the bottom of her coffee cup so as the hot coffee hits the chocolate it melts it creating a mocha flavored coffee.
Hershey’s Helps Create Valentine’s Gift Baskets for Teenagers
Hershey’s makes it so easy to surprise my kids On Valentine’s Day and I love that each piece of candy offers a way for me to write a personal note to each one.
Now that I have started doing this for Valentine’s Day, I can totally see me continuing this for other holidays like St. Patrick’s Day and more.
Make this Valentine’s Day even sweeter for your littlest loved ones with a Valentine’s Day Basket surprise filled with all kinds of special goodies from Hershey’s.
