It’s time to start thinking about Valentine Gifts since Valentine’s Day is just under a month away!
Isn’t it funny how quickly the holidays come and go once Halloween hits?
This year, I finally get to do some crafts with Rosie and make her classmates some Valentine gifts. I can’t decide if I want to do something with candy, games or something educational. I am leaning towards something educational but maybe I will throw all three into the mix!
MAJOR MOM POINTS.
Although I only recommend items I really love, I may earn a commission on purchases made through links from my site.
Rosie’s class is practicing letters and every week they have to bring in an object that starts with the letter they are learning about. One week it was “F” and I had her bring in a stuffed animal flamingo. If you can’t tell… I like to make this a challenge and I know the teachers enjoy it because they said every other kid brought firetrucks.
Not this mama!
I love to be different. My husband and I make a game of what object Rosie should bring in next.
Oh, the joys of parenting…
So now that we are planning on making 16 small gifts for her classmates, I browsed through Pinterest and found some seriously adorable Valentine gifts that would be perfect for her classmates.
BONUS: Most of them have free printables!
1. Valentine Donut Printable
Ok but for real, who doesn’t love donuts?
These would be fun with assorted flavors of donuts like a strawberry donut, a chocolate donut dipped in a pink frosting or a classic donut with pink sprinkles!

Ok, I think this is such a cute Valentine gift. Rosie just got a bunch of these today and she is obsessed with them.
You could do them in all pink and red if you wanted to get super into the Valentine spirit.

How cute is this?!
So many of Rosie’s friends are obsessed with dinosaurs.
I am a fan of Valentine cards that have something other than candy and this is the perfect toy!

I think out of all Valentine gifts listed on here, this is one of my favorites.
I remember loving these pens as a kid and I think it’s such a great gift to give other little kids.
They can practice drawing, practice their colors and just have fun doodling!
Amazon has a great deal on the shuttle pens here!

5. Valentine Hershey Kisses Labels
Let’s be real… there’s no candy that says “Happy Valentine’s Day” like Hershey kisses and Hershey hugs.
The labels on the bottom of these are super cute too!

Coloring is Rosie’s favorite activity to do ever. Well, that is beside playing outside, dancing, and popping bubbles
This is a super cute activity for the kids in her class! I would just get the large 64 count crayons and divide them among the class.

I feel like this Valentine card was made for me. I have a serious obsession with chapstick and an even more serious obsession with EOS.

10. You A-MAZE Me Valentine

Oh, these mazes bring back memories from my childhood.
I loved playing with these and I could sit there for a good 20 minutes trying to get the ball through the maze.
Sounds like a nice (quiet) distraction for our kids, huh?
I couldn’t find heart mazes but I thought these smiley faces were too cute to pass up!
Still, heart ones would be super cute with the Valentine theme.

11. Valentine’s Day Bookmark

These aren’t printables but an adorable DIY gift you can do with your kid.
Grab a ton of these free paint color samples and hole punch hearts in them.
Add some cute Valentine’s Day colored ribbon to the top and TA-DA… bookmarks!
I might combine this gift with one or two others. How can I pass up an easy gift like this?
12. Unicorn Lollipop Valentine Printable

As I was writing this blog post, Rosie came to sit on my lap for a minute before bedtime.
She immediately saw this picture and went, “OHHHHH!!! Mommy, what is THAT!?!” She was so excited about this unicorn. Specifially, the lollipop.
So, I think it’s only fair to say that this is probably her favorite Valentine Day gift out of all the ones listed.
I wish I saw this sooner because her first birthday party was unicorn and rainbow themed! I could’ve made invitations just like this.
P.S. Isn’t her rainbow skirt from her party just the cutest?
