Valentine Ideas for Kids

Favorite Valentine Ideas (in addition to our own)

By Isabel Kallman

We love Valentine’s Day over here.  For years we have been creating and gathering ideas for easy Valentine’s Day cards for kids, homemade Valentine’s Day gifts, and fun Valentine’s Day projects.

But I also love what I see out there on the web and want to share some of my favorite Valentine’s Day gift ideas for kids (which I have been obsessively collecting on my Pinterest board).

Candy Valentine Ideas for Kids

Candy Valentine Ideas for Kids

Clockwise from top left:
1) Ring Pop by Martha Stewart. Even though this idea is from a bridal shower, I think it’s a great gift for Valentine’s Day for kids especially if your young son, like mine, has a certain school girl he wants to make feel extra special.
2) Lollipop Valentine by Design Mom.  I copied my friend Gabby last year and made a series of these but used heart-shaped lollipops.  It was surprisingly easy to execute with my photo printer.
3) Cherry Lollipop Valentines by Les Petits Presents.  Love the simpleness of this Valentine.
4) iPhone Valentine by Living Locurto.  Do your kids and their friends all want an iPhone as much as my eight-year old son does?  Let’s make their dreams come true with this easy printable that you attach to conversation hearts.  Okay, candy is a good second.

Valentine Sweet Treat Ideas for Kids

Clockwise from top left:
1) Candy Necklace in a fancy jewelry box by Martha Stewart.  This is another bridal shower favor but also a great idea I think as a Valentine’s Day gift for kids.
2) Chocolate Rice Krispy Heart Pops by Korean American Mommy.  YUM.
3) Lollipop heart flowers by Family Fun.  A nice simple and sweet gift.
4) Lips & Mustache Lollipops by Blonde Designs.  So clever and fun.

Non-candy Valentine Ideas for Kids

Non-Candy Valentine Ideas for Kids

Clockwise from top left:
1) Wild Valentine Cards by Design Mom.  Gabby knocks it out of the park again and she shares her printables so that you can make some too.
2) Valentine Pencils by One UpDesigns.  These sayings are too adult for kids, plus they’re sold out already.  HOWEVER, you can still order your own personalized Valentine pencils for the entire class from Explicitly Yours (I’ve used and like them thanks to Jordan‘s recommendation) and then put packages together for the class.  You can use positive phrases and compliments  like “You’re a Great Classmate” and “You Make Me Laugh.”
3) Pirate Valentines by MerMag.  I think these are great on their own and Meri provides the printable for you to use.  You can also attach a candy as well.
4) Why I Love You Valentine Card by Small Notebook. Perhaps too personal for class valentines, but something you can make for your children or have your kids make for a parent or sibling.  I made one for my son one year and he loved it.
