Believe me when I say I love candy, but sometimes you want to give something other than a sack of sugar as a Valentine’s Day gift for kids. I always give my kids boxes of those conversational hearts, but here are some other non-candy ideas for this year.
Webkinz Plush Stuffed Animal Love Monkey
O my goodness this little stuffed monkey is one of the cutest! For a child over 3, this could become a best-loved huggable. It’s a Webkinz product so each animal comes with a unique SECRET CODE. With your supervision, you go online to Webkinz World where kids can care for their virtual pet, answer trivia, and earn KINZCASH to do other fun things online. So the Webkinz concept is kind of an old idea, but even if you never fuss with all the Internet stuff, this cutie will be a well-loved special stuffed animal.
Melissa & Doug Sweet Hearts Bead Set
This is a great value for your kids, ages 4 and up. Contains over 120 wooden beads and 5 cords for stringing. Everything is packaged in a sturdy wooden tray, like the quality you would expect from Melissa & Doug.
Ready to design some jewelry or make some patterns with these beads?
Valentine’s Day T-Shirt
Too cute! This is a quality cotton shirt, available in a variety of sizes.
Cool Change Valentines Straws
They change colors! This is a set of 12, reusable straws. When used with a cold beverage, the straws magically change colors. The temperature of the beverage causes the color change. Your fun will last far beyond Valentines Day!
There are so so so many fun ideas out there. Take a look are some more gift ideas from other moms around the Internet.
Don’t miss the point of Valentine’s Day. Love well. Be present. Enjoy!
