Cute Non-Candy Valentine’s Day Ideas for Kids! | South Wake Raleigh Moms

Feb 13, 2020 | Mom Life

Candy and cards are a classic combo for class Valentine’s gifts, but with more school’s broadening food bans (from peanuts to wheat to, in some cases, all sweets), non-food related choices can be a safer bet. Even if your school is still cool with candy, other parents will likely appreciate the variety.

“I Dig You” Shovels
These adorable beach toys are the perfect thing to give with spring break just on the horizon.
$27 for 24, Amazon.com

Custom Cards
We’re not going to judge a Paw Patrol or Elmo note, but the whimsical artist-designed ones from Minted are truly next level.
From $25 for 20, minted.com (use priority shipping available by 2/13)

DIY Bubble Gift
We love these “You Blow Me Away” labels from And We Play. Pair them with some inexpensive bubbles, and you have a cute and functional gift.

 

Festive Bookmarks
Encourage love—of reading—with these simple bookmarks available with Amazon Prime (attention, last minute shoppers!).

Stick with Slime
What kid—boy or girl—doesn’t love slime? Use these playful “Slime Yours” printables and add store bought or homemade slime!
