Staying away from food-related treats on Valentine’s Day, especially when kids are concerned, can be difficult. You may be interested in this for a variety of reasons such as allergy issues or needing multiple Valentine gifts for a variety of children.
If you’re looking for some fun no-treat Valentine’s gifts that are still kid-friendly, here are a few ideas.
If you have just a few children to buy for, then heart-shaped earbuds may be an ideal Valentine gift option. These can be purchased at most dollar stores as a novelty item for Valentine’s Day. If you have a kid that spends a lot of time on their tablet or listening to music, this can also be ideal. For boys, the hearts may not be that ideal, but you can find other options like solid red earbuds or something similar.
Red Jenga Games
If you have a technology-free game night, or you host a technology-free game day, then a Jenga game may be an ideal option. This game requires some skill and it can be ideal for two or more kids. If you can’t find a red Jenga game, consider getting a Jenga game and painting it red. This gives a Valentine’s Day theme while giving a treat for kids that is not food-related and challenges their minds.
Pajama Movie Night
This Valentine gift idea can be for the whole family, but especially for the kids in your family. Choose a family movie that you all love. This does not have to be a romance movie. It just has to be a movie that you all love. Now, pick out some pajamas for the special night. The pajamas should be themed for Valentine’s Day.
For girls, they can have pajamas with hearts, cupids, lips, or anything that fits the theme. For boys, they can have pajamas that are all red or something similar. If you have older kids you can turn the day around and go with a horror movie theme for the night. Make it a “broken Valentine’s Day,” and pick a horror movie. Turn the movie night into something fun that flips the idea of Valentine’s Day a bit.
You can combine these gifts into gift bags as well. The idea is to keep it fun and entertaining so the kids forget about the treats and goodies that they may be used to on this special day. When it comes to kids, think outside of the box. Think of the things they love and bring that into the theme of the day.
