Saint Patrick’s Day Surprise Bag: It’s Your Lucky Day

I have a confession…I  really bombed Valentines Day this year for John and didn’t plan anything special. I have been wanted to make it up to him and so I planned this fun idea for Saint Patrick’s Day, “It’s Your Lucky Day!” Shhhh! Don’t tell him!

I picked some of his favorite snacks and treats that also happened to be green.

Here are the things I came up with:

  • Lucky Charms
  • Hershey Kisses
  • Gold nuggets
  • Skittles
  • Extra Winter fresh gum
  • Sprite
  • Sour Cream Pringles  (John actually registered for these when we were getting married and we got A LOT of them for our wedding)

Then I made tags with all sorts of lucky and love sayings. Here are a few examples (there are 8 total):lucky you 12

I tried to find things that matched the sayings.

The cute Skittles tag can be found on Lil’Luna. I wrapped each of the gifts up and attached the tags. I also put times to open them throughout the day.

After he goes to bed I’m going to sneak this bag and the Lucky Charms for breakfast out onto the counter.

A few of the boxes are staying home for when he gets home for work. This little box will be waiting for him on his pillow and I have a surprise in that box that is just for me to know and John to find out Smile

This took less than an hour to put together and cost me less than $30. That’s cheaper than a date and I think stretching the fun and anticipation throughout the day will be well worth the time and money!

Hope you have a great Monday!
