Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts for Kids

Looking for unique Valentine’s Day gifts for kids? You’re in luck! I’ve listed 20 Valentine’s Day gift ideas for kids in this post to help you get creative with it.

Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday to teach your kids about kindness and love. It is also a day to share joy with others and make everyone feel special. Plus, it is an excuse to shower your kids with extra love too! Here are some of the best Valentine’s Day gifts to give your kids this year!

Unique Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Kids

1. Books

I know I may be biased because we love books in our family so much, I but I really do think they make great gifts! When you show children that reading is fun and not a chore, it really does become a gift. Especially if you read-aloud together and enjoy that quality time making memories with a good story. You might want to look at this list of Valentine’s Books for Kids to give you some ideas. Activity or puzzle books are another fun choice!

2. A Craft Kit

There are plenty of craft kits all over the place, especially Valentine’s Day-themed ones. Kids love being creative and making something all on their own. You can buy any kind of craft supplies, and they would be happy! Try to find a kit you can make together to make it extra fun for both of you. My daughters enjoy all kinds of crafts, but especially pipe cleaners and counted cross stitch kits.

3. Quality Time with You

Give the gift of an experience and take each of your children out for a special time alone with you if you can. You can go get their favorite dessert and talk, or go on a different adventure with each one. These gifts are often the best to give kids and the most memorable. You don’t have to do this activity on Valentine’s Day, especially if you have multiple children. Instead, create a fun coupon or picture to show them what you plan to do and when.

4. Sugar-Free Candy

We all know that candy and Valentine’s Day go hand-in-hand, but you can make a healthier choice that won’t cause a sugar crash or bad moods. There are many good tasting sugar-free options that kids will love, like these.

5. Open When Letters

“Open When…” letters are another fun gift you can give your kids. These letters are personalized for each child and will help them throughout their life. Some examples of “Open When…” letters include:

  • Open when… you had a bad day
  • Open when… you are feeling sad
  • Open when… you reached your goal
  • Open when… you are missing me
  • Open when… you are X years old
  • Open when… you go on your first date
  • Open when… you had your first kiss
  • Open when… you need a pick me up
  • Open when… you need advice
  • Open when… you are embarrassed
  • Open when… you need a hug

Make sure to write both happy and sad letters. This will show your child that you are there for them during the good times and the bad times.

These are gifts that will last for years and create special memories!

6. Diffuser Teddy Bear

If your child loves stuffed animals, try out a diffuser teddy bear! Aromatherapy stuffed animals are basically the same as normal stuffed animals but will usually have a felt spot that helps keep the essential oil smell present. Add a drop of essential oil like lavender to your little one’s bear, and they will be more relaxed in no time! Most kid diffuser animals come with a kid-safe essential oil as a bundle, but if not, make sure to grab some kid-safe essential oils.

7. Positive Affirmation Cards

Positive affirmation cards help kids practice self-love and give them the confidence and happiness they need. Saying affirmations daily will also help them know their worth, excel in their studies, and be able to adapt and work through challenging times. Grab them a fun card deck they can say each morning!

8. Coupons From You

If you want to make something for your kids for Valentine’s Day, make some fun coupons to give them. Most of the time, kids give their moms coupons during Mother’s Day, so they will love to receive them from you! You can give vouchers for a bubble bath with a bath bomb, a date to get ice cream with you, a movie day, have a spa night, or make their favorite dinner meal. (You can also buy premade coupons if you’re feeling short on creativity or time.)

9. Hot/Cold Stuffed Animal

Another great stuffed animal is the kind that can be heated up in the microwave or cooled down in the freezer. When your child gets hurt, you can help them feel better with their stuffed animal instead of a regular rice pack! These are great for earaches, growing pains, and bruises.

10. Matching Jewelry

If you have a child who loves jewelry, try finding a matching set to share with them. There are plenty of mother/daughter bracelets and necklaces that would make for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. It would also be fun to make your own set together!

11. What I Love About You Book

This is another gift that kids most often give us, but kids always need to hear how much we love them. Creating a “What I Love About You” book will help your child see themselves through your eyes. They will find this book precious and turn to it often when they struggle, even if you never see them read it.

12. Customized Toys

There are plenty of customized toys you can get your kids to make them feel special. If you have younger kids, you can find name crayons or give them a puzzle with their names spelled out. For older kids, you can find plenty of personalized jewelry, keychains, posters, and so much more. Try to find things that you know your child will enjoy, making it much more special.

This Valentine’s Day, do something other than chocolate, flowers, and a card. Make this year more special with personalized gifts you know your child will love. While these 12 items will make a great gift for your kids on Valentine’s Day, ultimately, you know your child best. Make this year the best Valentine’s Day they have ever had!
