What Kinds of Valentine's Day Gifts are Good for Kids?

Valentine's Day gifts for kids can be fun and whimsical. It is a chance to give your son, your daughter, your grandkids or your favorite child a little present and share how much you love him or her. While you can buy Valentine's Day gifts for kids, you can also make them yourself. They need not need be expensive, either.

Stuffed Animals

A special stuffed animal would make a great Valentine's Day gift for children.  These are easy to find and come in all kinds of sizes and price ranges. It will be one that s/he will love and cherish. My own children still sleep with the "stuffies" their Daddy gave them years ago.

Pillow Pets Are a Popular Gift

Pillow Pets have been a hit for the past several years. This red one has a heart shaped nose and like the others, is machine washable.

If you child prefers cats, these are also feline friends available.

Candy is a Treat

Valentine's Day Conversation Hearts
There are all kinds of ways to give candy as a Valentine's Day gift.

You can fill a special cup, coffee mug, or dish full of your child's favorite candy. Wrap it up in cellophane and top with a red bow.

Make your own candy gift basket with your child's favorite candy inside. This is something that I have done for my own children and they love it.  Not only do you know that it will be a hit with the, it also shows your children that you pay attention to all the details in their life, even the little ones. 

Another idea for a Valentine’s gift basket it to create a theme.  For example, place only red candy or heart shaped candy inside the gift basket.

A bouquet of heart-shaped lollipops is another sweet Valentine's Day gift for kids.

Fill a plastic bag or party favor box filled with Hershey Hugs and Kisses. Make a heart shaped card and write that the box is filled with "hugs and kisses".

Special Valentine's Day Pez dispensers are available for gift giving, as well as heart shaped candy necklaces and bracelets. You can give these in a little wooden box from the craft store that look like jewelry boxes.  Tuck a note inside written on a heart shaped piece of paper for an extra added surprise.

Valentine's Day Craft Kits

Many children love to create things. Buying craft kits is an easy gift to buy your favorite boy or girl. Model airplanes, paint your own piggy banks, Model Magic, and design your own pockets are some of the many craft kits you can purchase for this holiday.

Valentine's Day Movies for Kids

This classic Peanuts film has Charlie Brown once again pining for the affections of the little red haired girl. Apparently, this character is based upon a woman who rejected Charles M. Schultz' marriage proposal many years earlier.
