Valentine’s Day is only just a few weeks away! Can you believe it? I’ve got you covered with your Valentine’s Day planning this year with this post on Valentine’s Day for You and Your Littles along with my post from last year on how to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a New Baby. Perhaps the most helpful though is my post on Classroom Valentines Ideas for your kids. Cutness overload!
The holidays were such a welcome dose of joy this year and I was honestly extra sad to see them go. I think that + having children is why I feel more excited for Valentine’s Day this year than usual! 2021 marked my first Valentine’s Day as a mother but this year feels extra special too because it is my first Valentine’s Day with Rowan AND Henry. My two greatest loves. Each Valentine’s Day feels like a new dose of love with my family. I’m so excited to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my sweet little growing valentinese this year and to show love to them in every way possible! I honestly could not ask for a better Valentine’s Day trio than Edwin, Rowan, and Henry. How did I get so lucky to have the best boys?
Valentine’s Day For You And Your Littles
Instead of creating a Valentine’s gift guide for her, I decided to expand my gift guide and create a gift guide for Valentine’s Day for you and your littles! This post has everything from Valentine’s Day pajamas to dreamy home goods to creative crafts to sweet treats. I included lots of ideas for your kiddos to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember with items that kids love. I also have a handful of lovely ideas for you. Hint, hint: pass this post on to your love if they need gift ideas for you!
I hope you enjoy my gift guide for Valentine’s Day for you and your littles! If you don’t have a little, don’t fret. There are a ton of items in this guide for you that I know you’ll love. What do you have your eye on for Valentine’s Day this year? I’d love to hear if you think I forgot anything! I’m still formulating what I should do for Edwin but I have a few ideas for little things around the house and yard that I think would bring a smile to his face.
Because moms deserve a little love too! These super soft pima cotton heart pajamas are so sweet for moms this Valentine’s Day. Little English made matching pajamas for little girls and babies as well as coordinating pajamas for little boys… so precious!
I can’t imagine cuter pajamas for my little ones than these heart embroidered pajamas from Petite Plume! They are incredibly sweet and classic for the holiday and always. Petite Plume pjs are done in the most exquisite cotton and made with the finest attention to detail. I can’t recommend them enough.
Every new season from D’Ascoli is filled with beautiful dresses and blouses that I can’t get enough of! This particular dress has my heart because it is the perfect pink paisley print that manages to be both boho and chic.
This gingham shirt is a wonderful way for moms to coordinate with their favorite little men this Valentine’s Day or to just get your boy dressed and festive for the holiday. A classic button-down that can go from school to the playground.
This timeless women’s swimsuit is an instant classic and so flattering! This one piece is effortless and chic for poolside with your littles or family time at the beach. I have it in a different color way and it’s my favorite!
Fit to perfection, with a large brim for plenty of coverage, these double-lined cotton sun hats are protective without being overbearing. They are finished with thicker ties for the perfect bow and come in a handful of colors and prints.
The perfect baby pant meets the sweetest fully button-up shirt. You can’t mess this up. Your little one is sure to be looking extra sharp. Rowan has these pants in multiple colors and this shirt in a different print and we both adore both.
A quintessential shirt for little boys, La Coqueta’s effortlessly smart stripe shirt is a must-have for adding a tailored touch to everyday styling. Done in exceptionally soft cotton, your little boys will love this top!
This 100% Peruvian Pima Cotton playsuit has a precious little crochet pink bow and an adorable Peter Pan collar. A sweet and seasonless gift for a baby girl (although extra perfect for Valentine’s day).
I love this classic Le Lion embellished sweater. The fit is a touch boxy, making it super easy to wear. It is adorned with Le Lion’s signature sequin heart. The most perfect sweater! P.S. It can be personalized or not.
The classic Roller Rabbit heart print is a Valentine’s Day must year after year. I just love that it comes in a blue and white colorway… perfect for boy moms! These are sure to be comfy for sweet snuggles with your littles.
The Hill House Home tummy time mat is a plush, heart-shaped play mat, perfect for baby to practice motor skills and hang out while awake. It’s compact for travel and cute enough to leave out all day, too. The prints are beautiful!
The darling heirloom lovies from Parterre could be for babies or kiddos but either way they are the perfect treat for your favorite snuggly little girls. They are handmade in a velveteen organic cotton with hand-embroidered details and meant to be loved by your little ones daily. P.S. They come in 3 beautiful prints.
We love all things Oso & Me in our house! This lightweight extra stretchy fine merino wool blanket is perfect for cozy wrappability and is comfortable in all temperatures + seasons. Bonus: it can be machine washed and dried, which is huge with kids items!
This is one of my favorite children’s books! I always loved reading it to my students and love that Rowan is starting to understand the meaning behind it. It is all about how our hearts can feel so many feelings. It’s a really beautiful book for littles! I also always recommend gifting classic books for any occasion, Valentine’s Day included.
Rowan’s two obsessions are cars and animals (mainly “doggies”) so you can imagine how a book series about these two very things is a huge hit in our house. The Valentine’s book within the Little Blue Truck series is just as sweet as all the others!
This book! Oh my goodness, trust me when I say this is a must-read! Read this book around Valentine’s Day and I promise you will feel inspired to spice up your love life. I read this book in two days and loved every single moment of it. You can thank me later for this recommendation!
I am currently reading this love story about Lucy and Gabe and completely devouring it! I love the point of view it is written from and their star-crossed lovers story. I can’t speak to the ending yet but so far, I highly recommend it!
Say hello to your new best friend! Bling Wipes are your simple solution to keeping your jewelry sparkling wherever life takes you. These make for a perfect gift addition to a piece of jewelry or a lovely little something for your Galentine’s!
If you’ve never had a cake from Caroline’s Cakes, then you’re in for the ultimate treat. They are the most divine cakes with the best flavor. This pink champagne cake is a Valentine’s Day match made in heaven. Is so light and airy, it pops! Four layers of pink champagne cake are iced with buttercream… yum!
Make Valentine’s Day morning and the month of February leading up to the holiday special for your littles with this mini heart waffle maker. I LOVE that it is mini so it doesn’t take up too much kitchen real estate. It would also be cute to bring out and use on birthdays etc.
Estelle Colored Glass makes the most beautiful colored glass available! I’ve gifted their stunning colored glass cake stands before and they were a massive hit! These champagne coups are so special too.
These striking beauties are the créme de la créme of table accents and joyfully functional. They are hand blown and hand cut crystal with sterling silver inserts. adjust strike your match on the bottom and voila!
This is such an amazing stackable crayon set. Each heart has a single colored crayon and is totally interchangeable from the rest of the set. Mix and match the 12 color hearts so you can make your own unique heart crayons.
Surprise your kids on Valentine’s Day morning with some sweet little decorations in the kitchen. This beautifully crafted garland can be used year after year to bring love to your house for the holiday.
Unwind colorful crepe paper ribbons and discover vintage-inspired toys, gifts and keepsakes! Deluxe Surprise Balls contain 12 prizes. Surprises vary by style and include: gemstone or crystal, vintage-inspired toy, charm, sweet, crown, temporary tattoo, confetti popper, your good fortune and more.
I ordered these Valentines for Rowan to give out to his little preschool classmates last year (tap ‘Shop Now’ to see the ones I bought this year). I am so excited about them! Rowan loves all cars, trains, and locomotives so I thought they were just perfect for him.
Valentine’s Day for you and your littles can be extra special this year with some of these sweet picks. Valentine’s Day is so often thought of as a commercialized, fluff holiday but I really think it’s so much more than that. Sure, it’s a great excuse to treat yourself, your galentines, your love, or your littles to a nice gift. However, it’s really a beautiful opportunity to stop, slow down, and show some appreciation for the people you love most in this world. For me, that’s Edwin, Rowan, and Henry. I can’t imagine living a single day without them.
This Valentine’s Day, I encourage y’all to not only shower your loved ones is sweet gifts but to really shower them in boundless amounts of love and endless hugs, kisses, and snuggles. I hope you enjoy the holiday and I hope this Valentine’s Day gift guide gave you some gifting inspiration. When all else fails, Valentine’s Day pajamas are always a hit (just like the precious Valentine’s print pajamas Rowan and I are wearing in this post).
