Valentine’s Day is one of the holidays I don’t go crazy with. Not with my significant other or my kids. But I do like getting my kids a few small gifts as a special way to say “I love you.” I usually get them the usual – candy, a card, and a stuffed animal – but I always pick out something small that’s personalized for them too.
This may be a holiday that’s meant for spouses, engaged couples, and people in relationships, but I know other parents like myself who place the focus more on their kids. Especially single parents who still want to celebrate the holiday. There’s no better Valentine, in my opinion, than the little ones!
But V-Day is tricky when it comes to gifts for kids because it’s so centered on couples. If you don’t want to leave the kids out of the V-Day loop, then check out the list below for some adorable (and even gross, if your kids like that sort of thing) Valentine’s Day gifts for kids.

How cute are some of these Valentine’s Day gifts for kids? I especially love the “You Are Amazing” sign that could work for a boy or girl’s bedroom to remind them every day of how awesome they are.
If your budget is tight, you can always make a card and write how you feel about your kiddo. It will mean more than any gift you could possibly give. Or, get crafty and have a fun day of making Valentine’s Day crafts together!
