This is a no-pressure post, parents. You’ve got a lot going on and Valentine’s Day might not be on your priority list this year. We don’t ever want Valentine’s Day gifts to feel like an obligation, one more stressor for your winter schedule, especially this year — so if your palms are getting sweaty, click on over to something that will make you happy instead. We’re hoping this list will help those who get stumped every year when it’s time for their kids to hand out (or send out, if they’re remote) those Valentine’s Day cards to the class. And for those of you who relish this task every year, maybe we’ve come up with an idea or two you hadn’t thought of.
Of course, you can definitely go with the tried and true V-day gift options: heart-shaped candies and store-bought cards. Kids love them! But if you’re hoping to avoid handing out candy, or if you just find it more entertaining for yourself and your child to be more original, there are so many creative options out there that’ll last longer than a tasty piece of chocolate. We’ve got everything from temporary tattoos to sparkly keychains. There are even a few gift options that your kids can customize and make their own. Just make sure you get enough Valentines, because your kids are definitely going to want to keep one of these gifts for themselves.
While you’re at it, pick up a little something for yourself this Valentine’s Day, too, why don’t you?
