Well, I spent $2 on discount ribbon at Michael's for DD and I to make her valentine's for classmates; the rest of the supplies will come from the craft stash. And I bought M&Ms on sale after Christmas and seperated the colors; the dark and milk red ones will be for chocolate chip cookies. The leftovers of those along with the red peanut M&Ms will be for gift bags both in my house and for grandparents -- along with cookies of course! I will say $20, including the $12 I've already spent. I still need to buy a small bag of candy that's peanut-free (I'll go with some type of hard candy) for DD's class and, if I don't already have them (have to look), I'll need a few food giftbags (can get at the dollar tree @ 10/$1).
I'm really trying to focus on the homemade. DD loves arts and crafts projects so we'll be working together on the stuff for her classmates. I'm making little boxes and the ribbon will be a trim on the top box. A little heart will pop out (attached with a strip of accordian-ed paper) and there will be a piece of candy inside. DD will decorate the hearts and write the names on the boxes and put the candy inside. I will make the boxes and the accordian strip of paper.
We will put together little gift bags for grandparents and DH that include cookies, M&M's, and homemade cards. We are also going to make a hands-and-hearts "wreath" with foam paper for the front door. I'll trace DD's hands and then we'll cut them out. We'll glue a heart in the palms of the hands and the line the hands up into a circle wreat formation. In the middle of the wreath we'll add a sheet of paper that DD can write "Happy Valentines Day".
