Top 5 Alternative Valentine Gifts

Valentine’s day is right around the corner! Your little ones might be overwhelmed with candy, stuffed animals, and little Valentine cards from their friends. Those things are sweet and fun, but ultimately get eaten, thrown away, or donated within the year. I went on a hunt to find better alternatives! Inexpensive gifts that your kids will love that will actually last! Check out my top 5 alternative Valentine gifts!

1.Wooden puzzles

Get your child something that will last, is fun, and helps them work on motor skills! I love these ones because they have small hearts on them so they are cute for Valentine’s Day, but they will still be cute and fun in June!

2.Insect/flower Garden

This adorable garden comes with a carrying case so you have a place to keep all the pieces! It is a fun twist on getting your child flowers for Valentine’s Day because these ones are fun and will last a long time! They can get creative and make many variations of their own flower garden, the options are endless!

3. Alphabet Matching Dinosaurs

My kids love these! They are so fun to take apart and put back together, plus they can learn while doing it! This is a super fun alternative to a Valentine theme stuffed animal that will quickly be forgotten about. Grab a set of alphabet dinosaurs instead!

4. Toddler Camera

This is another one of my kids’ absolute favorite toy! This thing keeps them occupied for hours and they get to express their creativity! I love looking through the pictures they take and seeing the world through their eyes. It is truly a gift that we all enjoy!

5. This I Know by Clay Anderson

This is a great alternative to a traditional Valentine’s Day book. It is great to read all year long and it focuses on how much God loves us and the ways in which we know that is true! A great read for little hearts. While it is wonderful and important that friends and family love your child, how much greater is it that the creator of the universe loves your child?!
