20 Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts Your Kids Will Love

As I’ve mentioned before, on Valentine’s Day we like to have a special little family breakfast. Nothing fancy, I swear! But we’ll do things like set a cute table and make raspberry milk — and then we leave a small gift on each plate. A small treat, a note, a little trinket, it doesn’t have to be anything huge when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts for your kids.

I’ve put together a few fun ideas below to help you get inspired and maybe take a little bit of the pressure off. After all, it’s a holiday, right? It should be fun!
