"hogs" and kisses valentines day treats

So, I’m hosting another Valentine exchange this year and spent way too much time I had a lot of fun coming up with our Valentines this year! I found these gummy pigs and bought some Hershey’s kisses, then packaged a few bags up to show ya with a cute tag that said: “Hogs” and Kisses from Sadie and Charlotte!ย  lol. I was pretty proud of myself for thinking up something semi-original-at least in my mind it was…sooo.

bonus: the leftover piggies are pretty tasty….and I don’t even like gummies!

Last year I made these I “dig” you valentines…and I’ve seen such cute ideas all over Pinterest lately! I just love Valentine’s Day! It’s the only day where eating a ton of chocolate is almost socially acceptable.
And hey, just for my bloggy friends, (aka whoever wants ’em) I also made up some little tags, or cupcake toppers, that you guys can download here.ย  Print, then punch them out with a 2″ circle or scalloped punch. ๐Ÿ™‚
P.S. I’m so bummed that Picnik’s closing! ๐Ÿ™
P.P.S. Anyone else totally OBSESSED with Downton Abbey? I love it!


  1. abbey? and, yes ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Ahh, the staple diet of every UK child whose mother visits Marks and Spencers is Percy Pig gummies, they’d be prefect for this (he has a whole pile of friends too, I’m sure you could get an easter one our of as well… hmmm…)

  3. Your Valentine ideas are adorable!! I love “Hogs & Kisses.” I am obsessed with Downton Abbey too! I just watched the first season last week. Started the second season last night. Thank goodness for online streaming!

  4. First of all, your Valentines are really cute. Second of all, the printable tags are really cute. And, third of all, I am equally devastated about Picnik closing. I mean, I have Photoshop elements and I (sort of) know how to use it, but I just prefer Picnik for some things. I will miss it for sure!

  5. Totally agree with your P.S & P.P.S I’m totally bummed and completely obsessed!! Thanks for the cute printable. You’re awesome!!

  15. This idea is adorable! I love your blog also. I was wondering if you would consider sharing the tag that you did for the treats themselves? Thanks so much!

  18. Cute Valentine’s treats. And I’m with you on picnik, although it seems like google plus has similar features. I am a bit miffed with blogger picture uploading right now. It’s created like a million albums! haha

    Downton Abbey = Amazing! I fell in love with it last year and was SO EXCITED for Season 2! It’s been so good so far!

  19. Oh, oh,oh where did you find gummie pigs ? I have an 8 y/o who is obsessed with pigs, she’d love those.
