Valentine's Day is going to be here before you know it and I am always thinking about what to get my husband. I figured I would try something different and make something for my 9-year-old daughter! It is time to put a spin on things. We do gift baskets for Easter, why not make gift baskets for our kids this Valentine's Day? This is so fun and cute! I am going to show you an easy and simple way to make one! I was provided with an assortment of candy from The Hershey Company for this project .
 I visited my local craft store and purchased a variety of crafty products to put together a basket.
I needed cellophane, ribbon, and they also sell these cute little crafty cupcakes and heart that have a sticker on the backs of them to put on the basket! I thought it would be a cute way to make the occasion. It came together nicely.
You also need a variety of candy to choose from!!  As you can tell,The Hershey Company has a ton of options, but I do recommend you purchase Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Hearts filled with Caramel and Reese’s Peanut Butter 5 oz. Heart packages. They are delicious! 
I put the Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Hearts filled with Caramel and Reese’s Peanut Butter 5 oz. Heart candies in mason jars with ribbon wrapped around them and it was perfect. 
You also need a few small items such as what is pictured below, or you can buy small toys too! I was sure to include a Valentine's Day card.
I was able to get it all for cheap! I put a layer of cellophane in the basket and then put the filler down. I started adding everything and it slowly came together nicely. I did have to remove a few things, however, that was fine because I had plenty.
The gift basket I purchased came with a basket bag, and it made for the final finishing touch that I needed! 
Overall, I am so thrilled with how this turned out and I cannot wait to give this to our princess this Valentine's Day! For more information, including recipes, visit CelebrateWithHersheys.com.
