INSIDE: How to make a $5 Valentine’s Day “survival kit” gift for teachers using small tin pails and travel sized beauty supplies.
Valentine’s Day is great, don’t you think? It’s refreshing to focus on a holiday that’s a little more simple and truly all about L-O-V-E …and all the chocolate goodies don’t hurt its cause!
We love our teachers and they do an amazing job for our kiddos (hello, patience I only wish I had!). So for this Valentine’s Day, I am creating a super affordable $5 Valentine’s Day gift for teachers.
Since our school has a no-food-from-home policy, I opted for a Valentine’s “survival kit” theme instead of sweet treats. More chocolate-y goodies for me, I guess!

Easy Valentine’s Day Survival Kit Beauty Gift
Digging through my bin of miscellaneous Valentine’s Day decor, I grabbed a large foam heart sticker to use as a template. I traced it onto the pail with a pencil.
Friendly Tip: Use the end of a paint brush to make perfectly round dots.
On the backside of the pail, I painted the words “Love to teach“.
