Anti-Valentine, Valentine’s Day “Sucks” Bouquet of Suckers

If you are looking for a silly way to share your dislike for Valentine’s day with your other single friends, here is a cheap and easy idea!  All you need are some suckers and a note!  Don’t even get Valentine’s day suckers, because that would be supporting the very holiday you are avoiding, right?

So here you go, on a piece of paper write “Valentine’s day sucks, but you are great!” and add some suckers.  Easy enough right?  This would be a cute idea for your office or cubicle at work to share with your co-workers.  Obviously, you are writing the note so personalize or customize it to say whatever you would like.  For some reason I love puns for Valentine’s day and think that you can get away with silly ones even more than any other holiday, right?

I think this would be a great gift idea for friends, roommates, anyone you know that doesn’t have someone to share Valentine’s with or just doesn’t like the holiday in general.  A great way to share a laugh on a day that could be really miserable and lightens it up a little bit!

Valentine’s Socks~Thrifty Gift Ideas

Are you looking for an inexpensive way to show someone you love them this Valentine’s day?  This “punny” gift will knock their socks off!

Valentine's socks~Thrifty gift ideas, #valentinegifts, #thriftygifts, #valentines, #socks, #punnygifts, #easygifts,

My husband and I are cheap, “thrifty” and don’t usually spend much on Valentine’s day.  I usually make his favorite meal and we may exchange cards, but it isn’t a big holiday at our house.  Our anniversary is the same week and we tend to focus on that instead.  I still like to do a little something for my kids though.  This gift is perfect for kids, or, really anyone you want to give a little Valentine to.

All you need is a pair of new socks, some ribbon and a tag.  You don’t have to get fancy with the tag, write it out on a sticky note or get some tags from the dollar store.  (I tried to create the tag as a printable, but my program wouldn’t cooperate.  I ended up having to use my Silhouette software, which doesn’t allow me to share as a printable file.  If you happen to have the Silhouette software and want the file, I would be happy to share, just give us your email address and I will send it to you!)

I have 2 boys that I don’t think would quite appreciate the cute socks the way my daughter does, so they are just getting white.  Practical, but still makes a fun gift when you add the little note. Just roll them up and tie the tag on with some ribbon or put in a cute little gift bag.  In case you can’t read them, the note on the white socks says “We make a perfect pair, Valentine!” and the one with the colorful pair says “Valentine, You knock my socks off!”  Valentine’s day seems to bring out the cheesy puns in all of us, doesn’t it?  So there you have it!  A practical, cute, thrifty, Valentine’s day gift!

  I love Fudge!  It should be made all year round.  This recipe is super easy to make and delicious to eat.

Supplies Needed:
Big Metal Bowl
*  2 – 8 ounce Hershey candy bars. (The large one is only 7.5 ounces, so I buy the packet with 6 candy bars that are 1.5 ounces a piece)
*  1 bag of milk chocolate chips
*  ½ pound of mini marshmallows (The bag I buy is 16 ounces, so I guess-timate how much is half the bag)

Put all the ingredients in a large Metal Bowl.  Break up the chocolate bars into small pieces.  Set aside.

In a Heavy Sauce Pan:
*  4½ cups of cane sugar
*  1 cube of butter (½ cup)
*  1 can of evaporated milk (15 ounces)
*  Dash of Salt

Melt butter in a heavy sauce pan.  Next add milk, sugar and evaporated milk.  Stir constantly with a wooden spoon.  Once it begins to boil, stop stirring for 7 minutes.  This is why the pan needs to be heavy or it will scorch.  Once you have finished boiling the sugar mixture for 7 minutes.  Check is it is a soft ball stage, if it is, than pour the sugar mixture on top of the chocolate and marshmallows.

Add:
*   1 teaspoon of Vanilla
*   2-3 cups of walnuts (if you desire)

Stir the mixture all together until smooth.  Pour into a large buttered and wax paper pan and smooth out with a spatula.  Let cool.  Once cooled take a Heart Shaped cookie cutter and cut out mini-hearts.  I sprinkled pink sprinkles on top to add a bit of fun!

(When making candy,  Cane Sugar is the best to use.  The heat added to the sugar breaks it down to be smoother- My great-grandma only uses can.  However, you can use whatever you like.)
