Leftover Wedding Favor Valentine Gifts

Helping Hands is a non-profit in Shakopee. It collects donations from the community and puts on events every 2 or 3 months where people in need can freely take what they need, no questions asked.

We received a donation of wedding decorations and favors. They were perfect for making little Valentine gifts to hand out!

Most of these favors were originally purchased at the Dollar Tree and are still available (per the website).

We filled the bottom of six-inch glass hearts with fake petals. Then we filled the dress/tuxedo boxes with candy.

We glued flowers to the tuxes. Then filled the heart with the rest of the items - bubbles, small candles, candies etc. They're wrapped in clear plastic treat bags from Uline and tied up with curling ribbon.

We also filled tall clear vases with candy and wrapped those up, too!


  1. Cute! There is a place like that in Austin called Austin Creative Reuse. Same idea!

  2. Good blog! You have described in a nice way.
    Thanks for sharing this information.
