Custom DIY Valentine’s Day Gifts With MY M&M’S

Our girls are involved in many activities and the one thing our middle daughter is passionate about is dance. Being a part of a team and dancing is something she enjoys and for her many of her closest friends she’s met at the dance studio.

Valentine’s Day is just a few short weeks away and I know that when it comes to her dance friends she’s going to want to give her friends at the studio their own special Valentine. She also spends a lot of time at her dance studio so it’s important that she also gives her teachers a little something to just say thank you for all that they do for her each and every week.

Having bought My M&M’S for a baby shower I knew they would be the perfect Valentine treat to give to her dance friends and teachers. Plus everyone enjoys M&M’S so why not make Valentine’s Day super special with personalized M&M’S.


Personalized M&Ms

What I like about My M&M’S is that they’re great for any occasion. You can easily create your own blends with 25 colors and add personal touch with your photos, messages and a clipart library for any occasion printed right on the candy!

So we created these custom My M&M’S with her dance studio logo and colors. We ended up picking out a 2lb custom bag of M&M’S and a set of 16 heart containers.

I am a busy mom of three so I don’t have time to over think things like Valentine’s Day and these treats are so simple to make.

Just check out this video – 

My girls like doing things themselves and since these are so easy to create I allowed them to do these. They had a lot of fun filling these heart boxes and I know their friends are going to love these!

    How neat that the M&Ms are personalized for the dance studio! I know so many people that would love to get some personalized M&Ms.

    M&Ms are always the perfect gift to give. That is especially true for Valentine’s Day. 🙂

  5. Crystal on February 2, 2016 at 12:09 pm

    Those are the perfect way to add in some personal flair. I would never want to eat them though.

    I use My M&Ms in the past and I am absolutely delighted with them! I will be using them again for my friend’s bridal shower. I think they really make great personalized souvenirs of an event! Thanks for sharing your post!

    My kids would love it fo sure, I absolutely love M and M’s ideas this coming Valentine’s Day. This is really cute and thanks for step by step of how to make it.

    These would be perfect for the gift baskets i make for Valentines Day. I will have to get some made with some cute sayings for the kids.

  9. Echo on February 2, 2016 at 9:26 am

    I have never ordered personalized m&m’s, but boy are they cute! I love the idea of using them as a Valentine! Awesome idea!

  10. Michelle on February 2, 2016 at 9:24 am

    I love m&m’s so much, they are my favorite snack. I bet my kiddos would love some made especially with them in mind. I love this idea.

  11. Brandy on February 2, 2016 at 6:57 am

    I love M&M’s, they make the perfect Valentine’s day gift for sure.

  12. Kiwi on February 2, 2016 at 12:27 am

    I love the custom M&Ms! I just want some for myself I am going to order some soon!

  13. Ora Lee Gurr on February 1, 2016 at 10:50 pm

    This is a fantastic gift for anyone to receive. I like giving small tins with individual small candies. Clear dishes with tops are so cute because the recipients can see how personalized M&Ms are designed just for them. Thanks for sharing this idea.

    I live outside of the US, so we don’t get a lot of the cool stuff I see on other blogs – and I am totally jealous of these! I had no idea that M&M’s were customizable now – I’ve got so many cool ideas I’d love to do. Your little plastic hearts are adorable, too – great idea for Valentines.

  15. Shobha George on February 1, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    This is the coolest valentine’s day gift ever! And you could even personalize it with your child’s name for valentines, although I think that takes away from the cards. I’d be sad if I ate all those M&M’s I’d want to keep one!

  16. Joyce Brewer (@MommyTalkShow) on February 1, 2016 at 9:23 pm

    Those containers are adorable. Great gift idea.

  17. Chantal on February 1, 2016 at 7:11 pm

    I am in love with m&m’s an had NO idea you could create custom ones! This is such a great idea for all occasions. Such a cute and easy idea to put them in little heart containers.

  18. Sicorra@NotNowMomsBusy on February 1, 2016 at 5:15 pm

    I love the purple M&Ms. They look so good.
    Everytime we go to Vegas we stop at the giant M&M store and spend a ton of money on all the flavors that you cannot get anywhere else.

  19. Toni | BoulderLocavore on February 1, 2016 at 5:09 pm

    I love My M&Ms! We did them one year for our kids birthday treats for school and they were a huge hit!

  20. Cat Davis | Mom by the Beach Blog on February 1, 2016 at 5:04 pm

    Oh how neat, I had no idea you could make custom M&Ms like that. I think that might be fun to do for our anniversary with our wedding colors. I could make a cake and decorate it with them!

  21. Marcie W. on February 1, 2016 at 4:49 pm

    Wow customized M&M’s are awesome! I can see them being great in team colors for game day as well as making the perfect party favors.

  22. Liz Mays on February 1, 2016 at 4:23 pm

    It’s so cool that these M&Ms are personalized for the dance studio.They’re going to be awesome gifts in those cute heart-shaped boxes.

  23. Tammilee Tips on February 1, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    I bet those are everyone favorite valentine that they get that day!! Those are adorable containers and love that you can personalize the M&Ms for the dance class! I will have to remember this for a next party they would be a great part few a centerpiece too!

    I like your M&M’s Valentine’s Day gift creations.
    I did not know M&M’s came in these different colors.

  25. Robin (Masshole Mommy) on February 1, 2016 at 1:53 pm
