You’re the Spoon to My Jar Valentine Gift {with Printable}

Last year my workmate, Rachel, gave me a jar of Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread for my birthday. Several plastic spoons later it was all gone.

I didn’t eat it all in one day, but what a perfect gift it was for a nut butter fan such as myself.

Can I get one of these for my birthday every year?  That’s a long time in between, let’s add Mother’s Day, Sweetest Day, Valentine’s Day…!

Do you know someone who likes to certain foods straight from the jar with a spoon? Until I read this Huffington Post article, I didn’t realize that there was a whole list of comfort foods that people eat with a spoon right out of the jar.

Maybe you partake in this ritual or maybe you have a Valentine who does, so here’s a Valentine jar gift idea that might be sweeter than a box of chocolates to that special someone.
