Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Kids

We love sharing a small gift with the kids on Valentine’s Day. It’s a fun way for us to celebrate the relationships that are so important to us and show love in the way that someone with the love language of gifting does — by giving gifts. In addition to some classic candy conversation hearts and a few other sweet treats, we like to put together a small gift or gift basket. We also have floating shelves in the kids’ bedrooms that we love to decorate with them for Valentine’s Day, but the floating shelf decorations are just a bonus.

For the Picky Eater

Gifting picky eaters has never been more fun. We love this gift because it’s fun and practical and has your toddler’s name written all over it. We wrap these plates up with some quirky cups and bowls to complete the gift but these fun plates easily stand alone.

Other gifts we love for picky kids: thisdino plate set, this Instagram-worthy lunch plate set, thischeckered lunch bag for school-aged kids, or thissuction bowlfor babies.

For Little Readers

Findthis book on Amazon

One of our favorite go-to gifts for Valentine’s day is a picture book about love and a matching stuffed animal or pair of snuggly pajamas (or both). This year we’re wrapping upLove is a Truck with thesecute striped pajamas. To find the perfect book for your little learner, head to a local book store or secondhand bookshop for ideas, and when in doubt, the internet has you covered.

Here are a few of our favorite book/gift pairings:

ThisLola Dutch book all about love and these really cutewhite and pink pajamas

This book,I’ll Love You Till the Cows Come Home, and aJellycat cow stuffed animal

This cute book all about feelings and thesesuper soft pajamas from Primary

ThisValentine’s Day book from the Llama, Llama series and this darlingstuffed llama

For the Baby Builders

We love curious kids and any toy that helps them learn, explore, and experience the world in a new way is a win in our book. We work in a woodshop building floating shelves, so it makes sense thatthis toolbox would have our name all over it — but you can find all sorts of interactive toys that encourage imaginative play. Start by thinking about what your kid is naturally drawn to (ours likes taking things apart) and see if there are toys that help encourage play in that same area.

Other toys like this that we love: This cute,matching tool belt, thisDIY woodworkers kit for older kids, thisclassic wood train set, thiscrazy cute tea set, and this wooden farm set from Melissa and Doug.

For Future Adventurers

If you’re looking for a bigger gift for Valentine’s Day this year, play tents are a great place to start. If you’ve got a little one who loves the outdoors (or loves to build blanket forts indoors) play tents are a great gift idea. We love this one from Crate and Barrel because it folds down for easy storage, but you can easily find something similar for under $50. We love the idea of stocking the tent with things a little explorer would need: bug-catching nets, magnifying glasses, adventuring attire, or a cozy cot or sleeping pad for nap time.

Other tents that we love:this one from Amazon,this one from Pottery Barn Kids, and this playfulpolka dot tent from Target.

For Creative Kids

Gift set from Uncommon Goods

Putting together an art or activities kit is a go-to gift for us — not just for Valentine’s Day. We love art and activities sets because they are activity-based and can be assembled on any budget. If you want to DIY the whole kit, head to a local craft store and grab some fun art basics that your kids will love using. You can also purchase a pre-made activity kit or art box. We love that these kits come premade for kids of all different ages and skill levels.

Kits we love:This drawing kit for older kids,this book filled with mommy and me art ideas, this mess-free coloring kit for little kids, andthis nostalgic spiral art kit.
