Simple Valentine’s Day Gift for Teachers

While I was picking through the Target Christmas clearance I came across a pack of takeout boxes that I thought would make a cute jumping-off point for gifts for my son’s preschool teachers.  They are black with red ribbon handles and little snowflake tags.  The 5 pack of takeout containers was originally $4 but was reduced to $2.

To make them a little less Christmas-y I took off the snowflake tags.  I filled them with Reese’s hearts (one of the teacher’s favorites).
