Valentine Gift Ideas for Kids

If you know anything about us, we’re ALL about the holidays – silly or not. Valentine’s Day is one that can have a bunch of naysayers. Like, “ugh, another commercialized gift-giving holiday when one should show how much they care year round not just on February 14th.” “Yadda, yadda, yadda” is our response with a slight eyeroll for good measure. Of course people should show their love year round but, you know what, a day filled with even more hugs, more kisses and more “I love yous” never hurt anyone. Gift giving may not be everyone’s love language but it’s sure fun for those of us that it is!

But that being said, thinking of gifts can be hard. You’re coming right off of Christmas so ideas (and money) may be scarce. But have no fear, your dollar saving cupids are here. {insert Cupid Shuffle music}. And guess what!? Everything is under $15! You’re welcome!

  1. Love Monster Book -Searching for the cutest Valentine’s Day book ever? Look no further. Love Monster is beautifully illustrated and tells the story of a not-so-cute monster who searches for love and finds it when he least expects it.
  2. Melissa & Doug Water Wow Safari – My kids LOVE these. I think we at least have 10 different ones. You fill the little brush with water, “paint” each page and the colors magically appear and then as it dries the colors disappear so you can use it again and again. These are perfect for travel or quiet time, are mess free and affordable. Love it!
  3. Zing Air Hunterz Bow and Arrow – What’s Valentine’s Day without a little cupid running around? Made for older kids this is sure to be a real winner. One idea is to color the end of the arrows with washable marker. Make a large bullseye on white easel-sized paper to hang and see whose mark gets closest to the center!
  4. Play-Doh Pizza Party Set – Combine two of toddlers’ favorite things–Play-Doh + cooking–and you have the best gift ever. Teach your kids about food groups–dairy, vegetables, grains–as they top their pizza creations. Guaranteed fun for days. Or at least twenty minutes.
  5.  Wooden Teething Ring With Hearts – Our little teethers may not remember this Valentine’s Day in the years to come but they’ll still appreciate this cute teething ring to help their sore gums. The cloth part is removable and machine washable as well.
  6.  Crayon Rocks in Red Gingham Bag – Raise your hand if all your crayons are naked and broken? It’s a problem in our house too which is why I love crayons like these. No paper to be found shredded to bits on your floor and extra durable thanks to the rock shape. Win/win in my book!
  7. Munchkin Hearts Cups Bath Toy – Fill, pour, stack. Fill, pour stack. It’s my 15 month olds favorite game during bath time. These are much bigger than they appear in the picture above and with the different colors and numbers can be an educational tool as well.
  8. Scratch and Sniff Chocolate Cupcake Stickers – What’s Valentine’s Day without a little chocolate? Calorie free chocolate at that! My 3 year old daughter especially loves, loves stickers and so these scratch and sniff stickers will be the perfect treat for her to find this year.
  9. Love from The Very Hungry Caterpillar Book – Anything by Eric Carle is a winner but this board book is extra sweet. With snippets including, “You are the cherry on my cake” and “You make my heart flutter,” your little one is sure to feel your love after reading them this story.
  10. Nylon Bow Headband Set – This 3 headband set is as comfortable as it is cute. Nylon headbands are super stretchy and soft and can fit from infant to toddler. The 3″ bows are a cotton fabric.

Next week we’ll share a gift guide for him and a gift guide for her, so stay tuned!  Who else has valentine gift ideas for kids? Please share below in the comments!
