1. Fresh Fruit
Treat your loved ones to a new kind of valentine this year. Here are seven sweet ways to say "I love you" that don't require a trip to the candy store — or the dentist.
2. Fish Crackers
Turn these no-fail snacks into a V-day treat by bagging up a school of these cheesy fish crackers and tagging with a note. Think "You're a great catch," "You're too cool for school" or "I'm hooked on you."
3. Chocolate Milk
A carton of the good stuff presented with a loopy straw and the tag "You don't suck" is guaranteed to appeal to a certain grade-school demographic.
4. Snack Mix
Small bags of trail mix — spiked with fruit-flavored cereal for color — make easy DIY classroom favors when they come with notes like "Let's hit the trail together" or "You're a trailblazer."
Do up this go-to snack favorite with just two words. "You're awesomesauce" says it all.
Whether you make it yourself or leave a microwave package out for a big kid's after-school snack, popcorn served with a note — "My heart went pop when I first saw you" or "I love you, cornball" — shows you care.
