Before I begin, I must apologize for the poor picture quality. The finished product looked much nicer in person. BB had discovered my hiding spot for the gift and had played with the present 5 minutes before DH was due home. I threw the present back together and snapped a quick pic right before I gave it to DH.
My hubby is hard to shop for without going to a video game store. I wanted to get him something more personal than a new game for Valentine's Day, so I copied the candy bar bouquets you see at the grocery store this time of year. Mine isn't as fancy as the store-bought ones, but I easily could have added some fancy paper. I knew DH wouldn't care about that, though, so I saved myself the trouble. I used one of our large drinking glasses, placed a glass votive holder inside the glass to add more weight to the cup, and then filled it up with red marbles. I then took assorted candy bars, taped them to skewer sticks, and stuck the sticks in between the marbles. To finish it, I added some shredded tissue paper on top and tied some extra ribbon I had around the glass. Since I used so many materials that I already had on hand, the total cost of the present was only $4! DH was very impressed with my creative frugality!
