Movie basket

Initially, when BT and I first met, we had lots of family on his side that lived in the local area. With time, sadly, many families have moved away. He does have a few cousins left in the area, however -- one who lives less than 5 minutes away.


We do not take advantage of said cousin in terms of babysitting, etc., although she is one of those people that kids naturally gravitate towards. Occasionally she helps out with Hank, and we find things to help them out with as well.


I wanted to give them a little thank you gift this Valentine's Day. This gift was prompted by the mini bottle of sparkling cider I found at 99 Cents Only. Isn't it the cutest thing ever?! I didn't intend to put together a whole gift from the dollar store, but the plastic cups were two for a dollar, the candy heart has a movie theme, and the microwave popcorn (wrapped in scrapbook paper to make it more festive) was name brand.


A $5 credit for the couple's favorite movie rental place (Redbox) rounded out this little gift for some of our favorite people.
