We decided to make ten bags, and put little drawings, candy and other surprises inside of each bag. (When I was sewing the advent bags, I knew they could be multi-purpose!) I made ten new labels for the bags to make them look less Christmas-y and more Love Bag-ish.
My daughter is beyond excited to open a bag each morning with her Daddy. She knows what is inside, and what's inside isn't that exciting (a stick of gum, or a stuffed Christmas bear, for example), but she is still so excited.
Do you want to make your own Love Bags? Check out my advent bags post, and then adapt for love. I think it would be a really sweet thing to do for your husband, boyfriend, kids, etc. You could write things you love about the person, put chocolates, or maybe even make little date certificates. I would be excited to open a Love Bag every morning in the two weeks leading up to Valentine's Day. Maybe if I give really big hints, someone will do it for me? (Mr. Emily, are you reading this?)
