There’s that saying that having a kid is like having your heart walk outside of your body. So if you’re a mom, it’s only natural that you think of your little ones on Valentine’s Day. Before you make that fancy schmancy dinner reservation or hunt for hubby-friendly Valentine gifts, browse the options below for gifts that range from cute to quirky.
Clothes are the easiest and arguably most adorable way for little ones to sport your heart on their sleeve. Go festive with this Cupid’s Little Helper Shirt that comes with free personalization and bright colors for boys and girls alike. Or, opt for a subtle approach that’s festive but can be worn long after the 14th, like this Personalized Heart T-Shirt, or this mod-styled I Love You Sign Shirt that they’ll rock out in. Got wee ones? Cute bibs will leave anyone who sees them lovestruck, like this Heartbreaker Bib or Most Eligible Bachelor one.
No love-centric holiday is complete without a cuddly friend. Stick with a classic teddy bear that’ll grow with them; this ultrasoft bear sports a heart sweater while this one, personalized with their name, is twice as nice sporting a balloon. Looking for the nontraditional route? How about a heart-bellied gorilla, uber-popular Pillow Pet, pink sock monkey or even rubber duckies?
Go ahead; spoil them with some sweets (besides, that means you can sneak in a bite or two). Eschew boring boxes of chocolates for fun, kid-friendly creations. Decorated dipped crispy rice pops combines the best of all worlds: fun dipped decorations on a treat they already love, all on a stick. This tic-tac-toe (X’s and O’s, get it?) chocolate lollipop is adorable, and is personalized with their name. Finally, treat the whole family to a dozen heart smiley cookies. In the name of “sharing is caring”, of course.
