I’m so good at wasting time. So good. Basically an expert. Just this morning I spent over an hour thinking up little gifts to pair with my printable food-pun valentines from last year.
Remember these? Can you guess them all? (Btw, figuring out food puns is not wasting time — it’s good for your brain. Shopping is also really good for your brain, but um, imma have to get you the link to that study later.)
Aren’t these fun for Valentine’s Day? I just love the idea of doing something other than grocery-store valentines and conversation antacids.
All of these images (and more!) are available for download here. Then you can add a matching gift to go with each one … like a box of tea with the “Q-tea” card (perfect for a tea-drinking teacher!); some mints or gum with the “mint to be” one; and fruit strips, snacks or lollipops with the fruit-themed cards.
Wouldn’t this stoneware berry box with fresh berries inside be a perfect teacher gift with the “love you berry much” card?
The possibilities are endless!
If you’re interested, here are the details . . .
(1) To print the food-pun images:
Go to this dropbox folder and download the pictures you want. The pictures are all free to use; I’m just glad to see people having fun with these and spreading the love!
Then upload the pictures to a photo printing service (I used the Walgreens app on my phone), print several copies of each (make sure to specify 4×4″ square prints), then go pick them up.
(2) Add an envelope and decorate:
These envelopes are 5″ x 5″ — perfect for the 4″ x 4″ prints.
(3) Add a coordinating gift:
Lots of fun ideas are provided below!
