5 Unique Valentine Ideas...

Just wanted to show you a couple of more unique things we have in our store right now for Valentine's Day...

#1 - The CHOCOLATE BOYFRIEND:  Box is 10" tall, with 4 oz of chocolate.  There are darling little quotes all over the box - one being, "If he gets any hotter, he'll melt!"   A must have for any single friends that are wishing they were dating...! ($10.99)

#2 - The LOVE BUG balloon:  4 donut or blossom shaped balloons attached together to make this love bug over 4' long... We can tie an oversized tag that says, "Will you be my LOVE BUG?"  Can you imagine how much your little girl/boy (what the heck - even your spouse!) would love waking up to see this in the living room?  ($13.99)

#3 - WIDE ROSE RIBBON:  This 4" wide ribbon comes in a dark red or a creamy ivory.  Seriously you could wrap a box of cereal in this and it would all of a sudden look like a gourmet gift!  I used it as a small table runner in my living room and it looks great!  I can imagine a belt, or a cuff bracelet, too!  If only I could sew...!  ($6.99 yard)

#4- CHOCOLATE COVERED CINNAMON BEARS:  If you've tried them, you know how good they are.  If you haven't - well, it's time to give them a chance!  They are by far our #1 selling candy.  We sold almost 27 lbs a day during the month of December... crazy huh!  People love 'em - We have them made up for friends ("Friends and Chocolate make life more BEAR-able"), sisters, teachers, grandmas - you can't go wrong!  ($2.99-$5.99)

#5 - CHOCOLATE COVERED GRAPES (& strawberries):  Yes, grapes!!  The Sweet Cherub in Highland are dipping grapes for us!  I've only heard that they are TO DIE for!  I like the fact that they are bite sized and pop-them-in -your-mouth ready!  Order a 1 lb box by this Saturday (Feb 11) @ 7 pm for pick-up on Valentine's Day!  ($12.00 per box - 1 lb of grapes or 6 strawberries - gift ready!)

Make sure and "like" us on Facebook to keep up with all the fun at Pioneer Party!
Call 801-768-3549 to order your treats and balloons!  We will have them ready to pick up and you won't even have to wait!

February Visiting Teaching Gifts are READY!

So if you're new to our store and blog, each month we make a Visiting Teaching Gift that goes along with the message in the Ensign from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  We started this 10+ years ago, because we had customers coming in every month asking, "I have to go visit teach - what can I take to give?"  We would stop whatever we were doing and help each customer come up with something to give.  After this continuously happened for a few months, we decided we should pre-make some for these certain guests of ours.  And that is how our monthly Visiting Teaching Gifts all started.  I really want to say that we (as far as we know) were the first store to do this sort of thing.  Since then, there are many that sell something monthly... but we are a little partial to ours!

Anyways, as time has gone on, the idea has grown and our store has grown - and we are making lots and lots of VT gifts each month!  It is awesome to see so many sisters go out of their way to buy and give a cute little gift that goes along with the message from the General Relief Society. Just as a reminder, the following message is printed at the top of the monthly message in the Ensign:  "Study this material and, as appropriate, discuss it with the sisters you visit. Use the questions to help you strengthen your sisters and to make Relief Society an active part of your own life."  We hope you use our gift to supplement your own visit and lesson as much as possible... but we also know that there have been numerous sisters contacted and blessed by our very own VT gifts left at their doorsteps when a visit could not happen.

One day, I will give you some details as to what the process is each month to get the VT gifts out to each of you!!  We love it!

This month's gift is a chocolate brown box filled with the following:  strawberry & creme salt water taffy (that is so delish!), chocolate kisses, tissue paper, the message from the Ensign printed on creme with pink and brown accents.  The box is wrapped with pink polka dotted paper, then topped with twisted twine, some fluff (aka tulle), a primitive heart, and a tag that reads, "You are the Heart of the Home."



After reading the message, that is what we felt really stood out:  That each sister truly is the heart of the home.  The following quote is from the message:

"You are the bearers of the children. You are they who nurture them and establish within them the habits of their lives. No other work reaches so close to divinity as does the nurturing of the sons and daughters of God.”


Another idea we thought would be great is to give the sisters you visit a copy of  "The Family:  A Proclamation to the World."  It is always a good reminder of how our families should be organized and what we should be doing.  A copy of that message can be found here.



To purchase the February Visiting Teaching Gift, visit us in our store in Lehi, Utah:  or online here.

Make sure and check out our Home Teaching Gifts, too!  A can of Pringles is covered with a darling wrap, reminding your families to "Pray Always:  So you "CAN" be blessed, gain a testimony, testify to others, develop a relationship with your Heavenly Father, and get answers."  The full message from President Henry B. Eyring, "Exhort Them to Pray" is also printed on the wrap.
