Small Valentine Gift Ideas For Kids:
Valentine’s Day is a great day to show your love for those who make your life more fun! One way of doing that happens to be to give little gifts. I don’t think you need to go all out for Valentine’s Day gifts for kids, but it is fun to give them a little something special that lets them know you are thinking of them and appreciating them on this special day to celebrate those we love. Here are five Valentine gift ideas for kids that will stay in a budget but that your kids will treasure long after Valentine’s Day has passed.
1. A Journal or Stationery
Kids love to write and draw. Encourage their creativity and manners by getting them a fun but useful gift like a journal and/or stationery. I love seeing the funny things my daughter writes in her journal (when I happen to find it laying about and I just can’t resist- she is only 9 but it is full of insight!). My son doesn’t really keep a writing journal on a regular basis yet but his drawings of made up battles and football games are pretty cute. Letter writing an art that is becoming neglected and some cute stationery can change that in a hurry.
2. A Book
A fun Valentine’s Day themed book is a great gift. It will become a tradition to read those books together over and over each Valentine’s Day. Of course, any children’s book can be a fabulous present too. It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day themed but that does make it a little extra fun!
3. A Framed Photo
Another fun Valentine Day gift idea is a great family photo or a photo of you and your child framed in a cute LOVE frame that they can add to their room decor. The framed photo will call to mind both the time you made the memory in the photo and the memory of receiving it as a gift.
4. A Potted Plant
You can decorate a terracotta clay pot with hearts and give your child either a potted plant or some seeds to plant in the pot. They will have fun watching it grow and learning to care for it.
5. A Stuffed Animal or Plush Character
I don’t know what it is about stuffed animals but my kids just can’t get enough of them! They love naming the stuffed animals and cuddling with them at bedtime. They love dressing them up and playing pretend games with them. A stuffed animal is a great small gift that lasts for a long time and gets a lot of love.
Hallmark itty bittys are a unique line of small plush characters available in a wide variety of exclusive collections featuring some of the most iconic characters from film, comics and television. There are classic itty bittys like Lady and the Tramp and just in time for Valentine’s Day, Hallmark has released five brand new collections:
- Frozen – Elsa and Anna
- Pixar – Nemo and Dory; Woody and Buzzlightyear
- Muppets – Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and Animal
- Peanuts – Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy and Linus
- Star Wars – Hans Solo and Leia
Yes. I said Star Wars. I know that just about every mother is thinking, “My son would love that!” (And maybe your husband would love the Star Wars plush character too!) My lucky son got the Star Wars plush characters and he was so excited! He loves playing with them.
