Good Morning Ladies,
When I was little my Mom would always give us some type of gift for Valentine’s Day. Sometimes it was a card and candy, other times it was a toy or shirt. It was always a nice start to my day.
It was a tradition I wanted to pass on to my kids.
It doesn’t have to be anything super expensive, you can even make a gift if you desire. Just a simple little something for your kids in the morning.
Kids love new pajamas. I know I did when I was little. Pajamas can cost as little as $5. They are of use and they can be worn the night of Valentine’s Day.
Aria has so many stuffed animals but she loves them. She is currently obsessed with Beanie Boos. We get ours at Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon. They are simple but fun little gifts to get on Valentine’s Day.
Goldfish & a Card
What kid does not love goldfish crackers? I love them as an adult. Aria loves the original flavor, as well as the cupcake flavored ones. There are so many cute phrases that go along with them.
Straws and Cups
For some reason, kids always lose their cups. We buy a million and can’t find any of them by the end of the month. Gifting your kiddos a cool cup and straw is a fun gift that works out for you and them.
There are so many cute fabrics that you can make a blanket for your kids, or there are some really soft ones you can buy. I made Aria a bunch of blankets for under $8 and she loves sleeping and building forts with them.
Crayons and a Coloring Book
This is a great gift for independent play, and for something quiet they can do while you shower. Coloring is often therapeutic to kids, especially kids who enjoy alone time and quiet time.
Movie and Popcorn
We usually keep this gift for a Christmas Eve gift, but when we find a movie she likes on sale we use this as her Valentines Day gift. Target always has cute family-friendly movies for cheap. Popcorn is never expensive you can often find it in the dollar section pretty much at any store.
Tshirt and Candy
Candy is usually a last resort for us, but when I find a cute shirt on sale from Old Navy I pair it with a box of conversation hearts or goldfish.
If you are on a tight budget you can make a card. Kids love the sentiment and its good for them to know simplicity when it comes to holidays.
