Valentine's Day Red Bag Gift Idea




Every year on Valentine’s Day, since as far back as I can remember, my parents would give each of my 3 siblings and I this special treat bag filled with nothing but RED STUFF!  (Anything small that is wrapped in red or colored red that fits in the bag.)  It was always something so special to look forward to and I am so grateful for all of the years of love they gave me through this special treat bag.   Now, I continue the tradition with my husband, and in the future I plan to continue it with our kids.


Why not make it a new tradition in your home too?!  Best of all…you’re not spending money on expensive Valentine’s Day Candy…this is just any type of candy, drinks or little extras that are colored or packaged in red.


Here are some “RED STUFF” ideas you can include in your Valentine’s Day Red Bags:

Valentine's Day Red Bag with Red Stuff



  • Skittles
  • Red Vines
  • Big Red Gum
  • Nutter Butters
  • Hot Cheetos
  • Nacho Doritos
  • Stawberries
  • Rasberries


  • Red Hawaiian Punch

  • Red Gatorade
  • Red Wine
  • Coca-cola

Other Items

  • Red t-shirt
  • Red cell phone cover

Happy (pre) Valentine’s Day Everyone!
