How did Valentine’s Day sneak up on us so fast? Our family loves to make homemade gifts and cards for friends and loved ones. Here are a few favorites:

1. A healthier version of Peppermint Patties that is so easy to make.

2. Make your own decorative stamps for cards with this simple egg carton craft.

3. A DIY Book of Love is such a sweet keepsake.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

There are always new flavors available, but we especially like Coconut Willy (coconut with Needhams), Pig Pen (coffee with crushed Oreos), and Candy Store Floor (vanilla with Butterfinger, Nestle Crunch, Twix, and caramel cups).

For those who can’t live without Toots all winter, Martha offers ice cream sundae parties for up to 10 people. MP loved this idea, and thought it would be fun to have a few friends over to celebrate Valentine’s Day with some special treats from Toots.
