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.
Rainbow Heart PJs
Valentine’s Day is almost synonymous with Primary’s rainbow-heart PJs. The tops and bottoms are sold separately, and you can also get it in a footie PJ for the littles.
Customized Stuffed Animal
With their name embroidered on their new animal friends, your kids will know these stuffies’ hearts belong to only them. There are four animals to choose from.
S.W.A.K. Kissable Key Chain
Give them a kiss they can take with them! These groovy lips are cute keychains, but if you hold one up to your cheek, it makes a kissing noise! The longer you keep it there, the longer the kiss lasts. Ages 5+
Tie Dye Lounge Set
Tie dye is huge, and if your kid is a fan, they can wear it from head to toe with this set. It comes in five different color combos, from black and white to pastel pink and blue. Pick up one of Rah Love’s “Love Always” t-shirts to go with the pants, and you can get two looks into one V-Day gift.
Chocolate Covered OREO Cookies
Okay, so you didn’t DIY these heart-decorated, chocolate-covered Oreos — but we’ll never tell. They’ll be gobbled up before anyone has a chance to ask.
Musical Crossroads Jumbo Puzzle
Kids will love spreading this out across a huge area of the floor — the 72-piece puzzle is a whopping 21″ x 14″. And the musical motif may inspire them to dance, too. Ages 5+
Pink Heart Chalkboard T-Shirt Kit
Kids can add a personal touch to their Valentine’s Day outfit with this shirt, which comes with a chalkboard heart and stencils to help make a design. After February 14, they can wipe off their design with a wet cloth and make something new. Ages 4+
