55+ Cute Valentine Box Ideas for Boys & Girls School Parties…

Once upon a time, mom would take us grocery shopping, and while we were there, we’d be given the choice between about 10 kinds of pre-made, 3″x4″ valentines to buy for our class parties.

No one made homemade valentines. No one even brought in candies or special treats. We bought a cheapo box of cards, signed our name on the back in pencil, and that was about it.

As far as the valentine box went? We’d put our names on a brown lunch bag, and that’s where our valentines were delivered. Easy breezy.

Nowadays…

it seems like one had to procure their master’s degree from Martha Stewart University in order to “do Valentine’s Day” properly.

The kids want handmade valentines, with candy (unless your school has a strict, no-candy policy like ours 👎), and the valentine box must also be on point. It is quite an undertaking.

Luckily, these things are fun, given an unlimited amount of time and creativity.

However, I do not know too many with an over-abundance of either of those, especially after coming home from working long hours and needing to tackle other things on the to-do list like, I don’t know…showering, feeding people, paying bills to keep the lights on, etc.

AND here’s the deal: THIS IS A NO MOMMY JUDGEMENT ZONE.

I researched these ideas and put them in one spot to make it easier to scroll and find the perfect idea for your little. But if you have ZERO desire to go the DIY Valentine box route, then sister, I do not blame you in the least. In fact, I applaud you. Know your boundaries! Just say NO!

If You Have No Time (Or Desire) To DIY A Valentine Box

I am here to help you out, too. At the bottom of this list, I have ANOTHER list. It is full of valentine box ideas that you can BUY instead of DIY 😃! Score. Scroll to the bottom for that info ;).

So rest easy, Mama. One way or another, we are going to be SET for this important Hallmark holiday this year :).
