I have also had great luck going to the craft store and simply buying foam stickers and letting kids make what they want over a covered shoebox!  You don’t even have to craft holiday themes for it to turn out cute. Michaels also sells kits for some pretty cute Valentine boxes, they come with everything you need to make a cute box. But do go early they sell out.
