When I was a kid, Valentine’s Day was almost on the order of Christmas.  Nothing could ever reach the excitement of Christmas, but Valentine’s Day came the closest for me. My favorite shape was (and still is) a heart, and here was a special day that celebrates love and hearts and pinks and loving others!

 

My mom liked to give me some small Valentine’s-themed gifts on Valentine’s Day morning, like heart-shaped earrings, heart-themed paper and pencils, etc. I’d love to keep this tradition going with my kids.

 

So, I’m posting some fun ideas I found on Amazon that might help us with our kid (and adult) shopping.

 

Side Note:  The other thing I love about February and Valentine’s season is that the items for sale at Target or Walmart or Amazon are perfect for birthdays and other celebrations because they are full of happy, colorful hearts and other expressions of love.  So, after Valentine’s Day, I like to stock up on heart-themed paper and gift bags, since I can use those any time of the year. I’ve used Valentine’s Day gift bags for my husband on our anniversary, for example.

Now, on with the ideas for kids of all ages…

Dabbing Heart T-Shirt

 

I admit, it’s probably a little harder to find Valentine’s Day gifts for boys (or husbands) but my son would love this Dab shirt – what kiddo isn’t into the dab at the moment?

And, this one can last past  Valentine’s day because it has the cool-shades and cool-kicks factor.

Heart Pajamas for the Winter (Not just for Valentine’s Day)

 

My kids often have a pajama day at school, and this would be great for anytime during the winter, not just on Valentine’s Day!  (As you can tell, I love double-duty gifts for my kids)!
