Finding Tatum’s Purpose: Valentine’s Day


By Tatum Sorrelman
Business Management Major, Colangelo College of Business 

Valentine’s Day is traditionally reserved for couples in love. But who says single girls can’t celebrate Valentine’s Day too? So, I decided to show my friends how much I love them by putting together little gift bags filled with candy. I had an idea of what I wanted to do and I looked at examples on Pinterest.

I headed to the dollar section at Target because they have really cute items at a cheap price. The Valentine’s Day section in Target is awesome. It’s filled with candy, decorations, cards and lots of stuffed animals. I picked out Valentine-themed felt envelopes and the best candy. I looked to see if I could find any other cute containers to put all of my candy in other than the envelopes that I found in the dollar section. But I decided the envelopes were the best way to go and the fact that they were only $1 really influenced my decision. I left Target with all of my supplies all under $10.

As soon as I got back from Target I put together my gift bags. Creating gift bags for friends was so much fun! Not only because I got to give them gifts, but because I got to keep some of the candy too!
