Valentine’s Day is coming up, and if you have kids in your life, you’re probably wondering what to get them for this special holiday. We ofen show our love for our children by the gifts we give, however, it’s okay not to go overboard for Valentine’s Day. After all, Christmas was just a couple of months before, and you might still be recovering from holiday spending. There are a lot of interesting gifts that you can give to kids for Valentine’s Day that will show them that they are loved, and will still be fun for them, without having to spend a ton of money. Check out some of these ideas:
Subscription boxes are all the rage right now. They’re easy to give, and they pack a lot of fun surprises all inside of an easy to store box. Many subscription boxes are specifically geared toward kids. Some of them include toys and games, or personal care products. Other boxes are crafty or educational. Little Passports is a wonderful and educational subscription box for kids, which sends them on a journey to a new country or continent each month. The box includes a mat, passport, and lots of fun activities for your child to enjoy as they learn about the world. You can do a one time subscription, or subscribe monthly for a gift that keeps on giving. Right now, you can save $15.00 on a 12-month subscription to Little Passports.
Take a family trip to the zoo or to a museum. If you live in an area that itsn’t too cold this time of year, why not pack up the family and take them to the zoo? An alternative for cool weather areas would be to go the museum. Pack a few special snacks for the car (maybe some heart shaped cookies and juice boxes), and plan to spend the day together as a family. You could also bring along a picnic lunch, and enjoy heart shaped sandwiches. Have fun touring the zoo or the museum, and if your budget allows, you might even let your kids pick out a souvenier from the gift shop to take home.
Make a coupn book for your kids. You can find free printables online to make your own coupon books for Valentine’s Day. Make one for each child, or make a combined book for siblings, if you like. Include special coupons for things like ‘Lunch Date with Daddy,’ ‘Trip to the Movies, ‘Go Out for Ice Cream,’ and whatever else you might like to include. Make it as unique as possible, so your kids will have fun looking through it, and earmarking the coupons they want to use first. This is a special gift that gives your kids more of your time and attention.
Sweet treats make great gifts, too, but don’t overdo it. It could be fun to make up a sampler of some of their favorite candies, or give them a taste of the candies that you used to get for Valentine’s Day when you were growing up. Don’t forget the Conversation Hearts! See’s Candies has an incredible selection of Valentine’s Day candies that kids will love! Their gummy hearts and chocolates are delicious, and you can get $5.00 flat rate shipping on your order when you spend $35.00.
The best gift you can give, though, is your love. Spending time with your kids is what they’ll want more than any toy or piece of chocolate, and it’s what they’ll remember most in the future.
