Valentine's Kiss DIY Gifts and Printable Cards

Here's a last minute Valentine idea for both kids and adults
 featuring Hershey's Kisses a fun customized prints. Scroll down for easy and downright adorable gift ideas for your sweetie {or sweeties if it's your kiddos and their friends like me} this Valentine's Day.

I always take my daughter's Valentine's pictures or set up photo sessions with a local photographers. In fact, I do this for just about every holiday, because, you know, you can never have too many pictures! This year it was Stella's first Valentine's Day so I booked not one but two themed photo sessions with two different photographers. Both had a Valentine's "kiss" theme since I knew I wanted to incorporate Ava's favorite candy: Hershey's Kisses with her Valentine cards.
The studio portraits with Lisa Anne Photography of my girls was so much fun.
Ava, my little chocolate lover, was on a sugar high after but it was worth it! 
No chocolate for Stella just yet but we still got a "kiss" photo for her Valentine cards!
Our outdoor photo session with Tiffany Ruffennach Photography included a Kissing Booth.
My happy baby and my threenager! 
But we got some smiles from Ava too!
We even got a Mommy and Daddy kissing shot!
After I received the pictures I used my favorite editing site, PicMonkey, to create print at home Valentine collage cards for each girl. Bonus: this site is free for the basic version!

I then adjusted them to the size on wanted to print under printer properties (3X5).
I was able to print 4 to a page on white card stock.
I stapled the cards to snack size Valentine's baggies that I filled with
 6-8 Hershey's Kisses. And that's all there is to it!
 
Another gift idea using the same theme: attach the cards 
to a jumbo Hershey's Kiss or a tube of kisses as a special gift!
My girl's loved giving their Valentine's to their friends 
at preschool {Ava} and music class {Stella}.
We also included Ava's Sweetheart Cookies with her Valentine's to our family members.
We loved baking these cute cookies using the Foodstirs baking kit. 
 Mommy's little baker!
Hope you enjoyed our sweet Valentine's. 
We sure did {I even scored some leftover Kisses}!
Happy Valentine's Day!
