A bag of … RED



I recently shared my new role as spiritual mentor to a young lady who is going through an 18-week Confirmation Class at our church. I am responsible for modeling Christian living, encouraging her to make wise and sound decisions, and being available when she wants to talk or ask questions. Though it is not required, gift-giving is one of my love languages and most favorite way to surprise someone. I’m making it a priority to give her things I think she will enjoy or that will make her smile. Since February is the month of love and Valentine’s Day, I decided to give her a bag containing all things RED.

To create a bag of RED, one doesn’t need to spend a lot of money. Kamden and I had a blast walking through the aisles of the Dollar Tree picking up knick-knacks, candy, pens and paper, and seasonal items with a Valentine theme. Since every cool human likes Chick-Fil-A, and because their packaging is red, I got a gift card. And, because I’m a frugal and resourceful mentor, I put the gift card in Kamden’s empty nugget box!


This bag of RED contains:

  • Trident gum
  • Kit Kat bar
  • jewelry cleansing wipes
  • Coffee mug with hearts
  • a bag of Doritos chips (nacho cheese!)
  • milk chocolate candy hearts
  • headbands
  • Twizzlers
  • M&Ms
  • bath sponge
  • Chick-Fil-A gift card
  • greeting card
  • gift bag with hearts

Color-themed gifts are unique and you can spend as much (or little) as your budget allows. I spent $31 for everything in this bag of RED, including the gift card. It was super fun to put together and doing this during seasonal and holidays is simple. Kamden was excited to pose for the camera and hold the bag full of RED goodies we got for our confirmand student!
