Chocolate Covered Oreo
Before you even think about getting a gift for your child, consider their age and preferences. All kids differ in many ways. Younger kids are less likely to notice the present, but older ones will.
Chocolate covered Oreos will be great to start with as they suit kids of all ages. This is also a chance for you to get creative and explore your cooking skills. You have probably been watching many YouTube tutorials on how to make the best treats Valentine’s Day treats for your kids. This would be a great time to put this knowledge to use.
Kids are really simple and will appreciate anything made for them with love (and sugar). As you work on creating the chocolate covered Oreos, add some heart-shaped sprinkles on top.
Your children will remember how special you made their Valentine’s Day for a long time even if they don’t act like it’s a big deal right now.
Take them Shopping
This would work perfectly for most little girls. Have you promised them a shopping trip where they can get whatever they want (within reason)? Well, this Valentine’s Day is a perfect holiday to do it!
Make sure they do not see it coming so that the surprise works. Pick out a few stores that are likely to have some of their favorite items.
Plan a surprise lunch date with them after the shopping spree. Consider it a mom daughter’s date. It is one of the best presents you can get your teenage daughters. Use your time out with them as a bonding opportunity and get to understand their interests at a deeper level.
Also, don’t forget to pop a few Sunday Scaries gummies yourself to keep you chilled and relaxed throughout the shopping spree.
Little kids love creativity. It is even more impressive when they get to keep it for a long time. If you are a hands-on mom or dad, then consider making a great Valentine’s Day gift as a DIY project.
You will have to be very careful so that the kids don’t find out what you are making for them. A good idea would be to cut out heart-shaped photo frames and put your favorite picture with them.
You can also add a few personalized messages that describe why each of your children is special to you. This may seem like a simple thing, but you will be surprised how much they treasure such a gift (especially when they get older).
Are you a busy mom, and the idea of crafting a gift does not fit anywhere in your schedule? Well, do not sweat it.
You may also have no time to bake decked out cookies or cakes on that day. But that does not mean that you should not get your kids something special. Visit the nearest supermarket after work and collect PJs for all of them.
Choose those with cute little hearts on them, and make sure to go for each of the kids’ favorite colors. You can be sure that your little ones will be thinking about you when they go to sleep.
The most important thing is that your kids know how much they mean to you and that you will always do everything possible to make them happy.
Bath Bombs with Suprise Toys
Some kids aren’t a fan of baths and getting clean in general but you can change that with toy bath bombs!
Joyin creates fun seasonal products, toys, and party supplies that put a smile on your face. This 8 piece bath bomb kit features wonderful smelling bath bombs that each have a little surprise inside.
Seriously, the scents are strong and they immediately whiff into your face as you open them up. There are fruity scents like grape, orange, peach, strawberry, apple, and watermelon. Then, also, a sweet candy scent of marshmallow and relaxing lavender.
Each bath bomb has moisturizing coconut oil and shea butter and is made of natural ingredients. They make your skin feel nice and soft!
These toy bath bombs quickly fizz to reveal a cute little toy and change the water a fun color. The tiny toys are just the cutest too!
My son likes to take a bath and then place the toy somewhere to surprise me. I just love this little unicorn he placed on my keyboard. It watches me while I work and makes me smile every time I look at it 🙂
It’s a Valentine’s Day gift that your kiddos will love and plus you can say goodbye to boring baths!
Have Dinner Together
Come home early that evening and prepare something special for them. Every parent knows what makes their children smile.
Take the time to prepare all their favorite dishes and set the table beautifully. Have them dress up for dinner and let them enjoy the meal. While at dinner, you can take time to affirm your love for them.
Remind them that you will always be there for them. Once everyone finishes with dinner, give your kids little gifts you prepared in advance.
Choose the gifts based on their personalities because all children are not the same. Sometimes a simple storybook is all your little bookworm needs, while the extrovert will appreciate a colored lipstick more.
Kids are all unique and deserving of love. Most of these little ones also understand the love language you communicate. Being valentine’s day, make sure they know that you value and appreciate them.
A gift does not have to be expensive, as long as it is meaningful and valuable. Your kids will enjoy you going the extra mile to show them your love.
