I Mustache You Valentine

Every Valentine’s I take my girl’s to the store and let them choose the fun non-candy item they want to give to friends.

Let’s talk Valentine’s Day… My birthday is in December, my husband’s is in January, and our anniversary is in March, so with all the holidays so close together we have decided not to spend a ton of money on each other for Valentine’s Day.

Valentine Redbox Wrappers

Valentine Redbox Wrappers

The Christmas Redbox printables were a huge hit, so by popular demand we are back with a Valentine version! There are 4 different Valentine Redbox wrappers to go along with our favorite movie treats. You can purchase Redbox codes straight from their website in quantities of 5, 10, 20 or 50. Have the codes emailed to yourself and then write the codes on the wrappers. If you want more detailed instructions of how to buy the codes, I’m going to refer you back to the Christmas post. The price of Redbox rentals has gone up to $1.50, so it will cost $7.50 for 5 rental codes. And a box of theater candy is around $1, so you’re looking at $2.50 for each. How well do you know your friends? If you’ve gone to a movie with them, you’ll probably be able to guess what their favorite movie watching treat is!
