Show the Earth Some Love this Valentine’s Day

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, here are 5 items you can score from your local Salvation Army Thrift Store for packaging up your sweetheart's gift. Bonus - they are all great options for reusable packaging!


The easy peasy option is to find a box. I lucked out with this box since it had hearts all over the top. It's perfect for jewelry!



You can always find a basket at your local Salvation Army Thrift Store in all shapes and sizes. Take that extra step by restyling it for Valentine's Day! Fill it with flowers, a yummy selection of foods for a romantic picnic or turn it into a go to spa date with bath salts, candle, etc.


Mason Jar

Refashion a Mason jar and fill it with DIY bath salts or hot chocolate mix. Fill it with your love's favourite candies. Maybe fill it with love notes that your sweetheart can read every day for a month or even a year.


Take a thrifted t-shirt and simply turn it into reusable packaging by cutting it into a square. You can use Sharpies or fabric paint to jazz it and customize it for Valentine's Day. Then wrap up your gift.

Gift Card Holder

Upcycle a thrifted find into a gift card holder. You can easily repurpose a wool sweater into a gift card holder by cutting it into one long piece of fabric then stitching up the sides. You can stitch designs on the front or use a Sharpie to stencil a pattern. 

Happy Valentine's Day!
