This Valentine’s Day, be sure not to leave out the young ones! Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers and romance, it’s about love in all of its forms! Valentine’s day gifts for kids can sometimes be a stumper, but they don’t have to be.
Candy and sweets tend to be a given on this lovey-dovey day, but there’s a lot of awesome Valentine’s gifts out there that can really wow kiddos with delight and surprise.
So whether it’s a fun little gift for your own children, your grandchildren, the neighbor’s kids, or your cousin in-law’s twice removed nephew, here are some adorable options for those cutie pies.
25 Fun Valentine’s Day Gifts for Kids They’ll Love
1. Love Pup Flower Basket
This Love Pup Flower Basket is too adorable for words! Alright, we’ll come up with some anyway: sweet, clever, whimsical, cute, awwwww-inspiring. Those and more all come to mind. Your little one will love this puppy that is made out of white carnations.
A super sweet option from Daddy to daughter.
2. I Cerealsly Love You Bowls
If your kiddo is a cereal killer (get it?) then they will love these witty bowls! The only way to make them cuter is to personalize them with their names… Oh wait, they’ve done that, too!
Kids love having their own names on things, so these will be a huge hit. And don’t limit them to cereal — they make great ice cream and popcorn bowls too.
3. Lego Valentine Bear
This cute Lego Valentine Bear is just right for the Lego lover! They’ll love putting together this totally adorable bear with you, or all on their own as a “big kid.”

4. Valentine Tattoos
Let them “tat” up with these fun Valentine tattoos! The boys will love flexing their (invisible) muscles when they have a cool looking tat on them, and the girls will feel like showing off, too.
A fun (and easily removable) way to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
5. Valentine’s Day Ice Cream
We think every holiday deserves a little ice cream, and Valentine’s is no exception! Yummy, cold treats in delicious flavors — what’s better? Well, if you ask the kids maybe some sprinkles or whipped cream, so plan accordingly!

Keep them wrapped in your loving embrace, even when you’re not there in person, with this super cute and lovable blanket! The kids will appreciate the sentiment, and it is sure to be their favorite companion while doing homework, watching movies, or reading a good book. Fun to take to sleepovers, too!
