filed under:

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: my Valentine’s Day with Kids Gift Guide along with another oldie but goodie post, 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 now than I ever did before having children! 2021 marked my first Valentine’s Day as a mother but every year since then has felt extra special too because my children understand the joy in celebrating those that they love more and more with each year. I love it too – the opportunity to celebrate my greatest loves, Edwin, Rowan, Henry, and our baby on the way. 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 them love 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? P.S. Look how little Rowan is in this old Valentine’s Photos from over the years… heart melting!

Valentine’s Day With Kids Gift Guide

Instead of creating a Valentine’s gift guide for her, I decided to expand my gift guide and create a Valentine’s Day with Kids Gift Guide to include your littles! This post has everything from Valentine’s Day pajamas to dreamy home goods to sweet treats to creative crafts (it’s time to break out the construction paper and paper hearts!).

There really are so many items with a fun twist like surprise balls (here and here), gorgeous jewels (here and here), little joys for baking like heart shaped cookie cutters, conversation hearts, and heart cookies (here, here, and here), books for you and your littles (here and here), clothing to wear for you and your littles (here and here), tabletop loveliness (here and here), and more. 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 Valentine’s Day with Kids Gift Guide! 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. Honestly, at this point in our lives, nothing beats exchanging love notes and relaxing with a lovely movie night at home after our boys go to sleep.

Share all your brilliant ideas!

Valentine’s Day for you and your littles can be extra special this year with some of these sweet picks. In fact, 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).
