Valentine’s Day is kind of a big deal! At least it is to kids: They’re out there making DIY Valentine’s Day cards (complete with Valentine’s Day mailboxes) for the class party, creating their own Valentine’s Day crafts and competing in Valentine’s Day games. They definitely deserve a little something of their own for all their effort! These Valentine’s Day gifts for kids will totally make them feel the love.
Mileage may vary depending on how much your child is into hearts, mushy stuff and the colors red and pink, so we tried to include some items that are seasonally thematic (the ones that would make cupid proud), along with a few items that don’t scream “Valentine’s Day.” It’s a good thing that surprise collectible toys are still a huge trend, since they’re often the perfect item when you need a little something to fill out a gift basket. Another trending item that’s here to stay: Family matching pajamas, which are no longer just the purview for the December holidays anymore. And don’t miss even more Valentine’s Day ideas: We’ve got Valentine’s Day gifts for toddlers, Valentine’s Day gifts for boys and Valentine’s Day gifts for teachers too.
