I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day. I loved decorating my shoebox as a kid, going to the store with my mom to pick out cards and candy for my classmates. I loved hand-writing each of my classmate’s names on cards and carefully attaching candy. I paid special attention to the cards for my very best friends and for my elementary school crush at the time.
When Mr. Table and I started dating, Valentine’s Day was our first holiday together. We still celebrate Valentine’s Day every year and look back to that first Valentine’s Day we shared.
I still don’t look at Valentine’s Day as a holiday just for couples, though. It’s always been a day to spread the love to everyone that you value in your life. Even though Mr. Table and I celebrate Valentine’s Day each year, I still try to share the love with friends and family who I love and appreciate. To me, Valentine’s Day is a chance to tell everybody you love, not just your significant other, that you cherish them. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t always tell them that you love them, but on Valentine’s Day, there’s chocolate, which makes it even sweeter.
A fun homemade gift that you can share with everyone you love this Valentine’s Day is homemade hot cocoa mix. It’s the perfect way to share the love with friends, family, or coworkers. It’s so easy to make a big batch, package into jars and give to everyone you love!
This hot cocoa mix is made extra special with the addition of Dove® Milk Chocolate Promises. They go right into the mix to make it extra rich and creamy. You can also include a few hearts with the jars so that friends can drop a chocolate heart directly into a cup of cocoa for an extra luxurious treat. Along with a fun American Greetings Valentine’s Day card, these cute jars of hot cocoa mix make such a fun Valentine’s Day gift.
If you want to show the special people in your life that you love and appreciate them, stop by your local Walmart to pick up all of the ingredients for these homemade Dove® hot cocoa mix jars, and get gifting. Nothing says love like a Dove® Milk Chocolate Promises and a hot cup of cocoa!
