Valentine's Day Gift Bag For College Students

Since my son lives in his college dorm, I always make him gift bags for the different holidays. Or just because. Honestly, whenever I see him, he has a bag. 

I have always given him Valentine's Day goodies and didn't want to stop just because he's not currently living at home. If he was in another state, I'd probably mail him a package.

Here's what what in Tommy's Valentine's Day bag:

He loves Super Mario Bros--his favorite brother is Luigi. I found this at Target:

He also loves Reese's Peanut Butter cups:

Truly, he loves Reese's so I got him 2 more bags, plus M&Ms:

Tommy enjoys chocolate covered pretzels and Target had these:

I always get these Krabby Patty gummies for every holiday:

We're always fans of Little Debbie treats. I buy these every season as well. I love how the brownie switches up shapes:

Finally, I wanted to include some fun cereal and I found these Froot Loops at HEB:

Tommy doesn't wait to open things, so he's already seen what was in his bag and was happy to see everything. 

Honestly, I'll probably still give my kids holiday gift bags even when they're like in their 40s. They're fun to put together and I always enjoy seeing them excited.

Do you like putting together holiday gift bags?


  1. I don't understand all the fuss about Valentine's Day it is just another day for me

  2. Such a sweet gift bag for your son! My son would love anything Mario Bros :)

  3. What a fun bag for him!! I know it will only make him smile and most importantly, its good candy!!! 😉

  4. I absolutely adore this idea! Making Valentine's Day gift bags for your son is such a thoughtful and loving way to celebrate the holiday!

  5. I love the idea of sending them thoughtful care packages, especially for special occasions like Valentine's Day. Your selection of treats and goodies, tailored to your son's preferences, is so thoughtful and sure to bring a smile to his face.

  6. Yes! They still like little presents at any age. My ex-husband's mom still gave us baskets on Easter, lol. We loved it.

  7. Such a cute & thoughtful Valentine's gift bag! My daughter would love the Super Mario Bros heart candy.

  8. You are such a sweet mom to put together a Valentine's basket for all your kids. My friend was telling me how her parents always did this too and how they still do (she's now in her 30's). So sweet! My kids are still HS age but I always do special things for the holidays.

  9. I haven't thought of putting a Valentine gift bag for my kids! Now I would definitely want to do this. Thanks!

  10. OMG! The Super Mario Chocolate Hearts is soooo cute. My sister is a big fan and I am sure she will love this. Will definitely check Target.

  11. such a sweet bag! and we all are big Reese's fans too.. i am now wanting to do this for my own..

  12. I’m glad he loved his goodies. I need to put together a few things for my son for Valentines Day. It will be here before I know it.

  13. I love everything inside your Valentine's gift bag, so delicious and I need to prepare for my kids too!

  14. I love Reese Peanut butter cups. In fact, what I have now is Reese Peanut Butter Sandwich.


Thanks for the comment!
