Looking for ideas for a Valentine Care package for two girls, ages 10 and 8; maybe four or five items. I have checked the site: "One Pretty Thing" and have seen a few ideas, but I thought I would ask if there are other ideas that you might have used.

I sent my 18-yo DD a package last week. It had a magazine, goofy lips candy, some lindt truffles, and hair scrunchies. She loved it!

When our girls were that age, dh and I bought each of them a real china tea cup/saucer and gave it to them for valentines that year.

They are now all in college, but I have so many precious memories of sitting around the table with my girls drinking tea/hot chocolate our of their "fancy cups'. They LOVED them, and will still have a cup of morning coffee in them when home on break.

There is something really special and "girlie" about drinking a hot beverage in a china tea cup!

Ideay pues?

Things I loved when I was eight: charm bracelets or necklaces, if their ears are pierced some costume earrings (age appropriate), a locket, hair bows/barrettes (do girls still use these?) A little purse/coin purse.

they have a pink metallic heart piggy bank at target. i got that for my 18 yr old today. i also got her a wax warmer and a block of wax (she wanted one but started mentioning it after xmas shopping was done).

a heart necklace? a watch?

i would rather get them one more pricey thing than a bunch of little things. we have always ended up with too many little things and they really never use any of it.

A little pocket-sized package of Valentine "Swankies" printed tissues is always a hit with my DD. Many gift stores and grocery stores sell them in their seasonal sections throughout the year.

I sent my college-aged daughter a locket with her sorority letters and a rose. She loved it!

When she was younger, nail polish, inexpensive jewelry, gift cards, truffles (something special she didn't usually get!).
