For our family, Valentine’s Day has become more of a kids holiday than one for us adults. They know they’ll wake up to chocolate and a sweet little treat, and we usually have themed goodies around the house in the days and weeks leading up to the holiday. This year, I’ve specifically been in search of budget-friendly valentine’s gifts for kids.

Being a total Amazon Prime mom (duh), you know I’ve been hitting up my favorite marketplace in search of new valentine’s gifts for kids that go a bit beyond chocolate and teddy bears—without going beyond my budget!

Pete the Cat: Valentine’s Day is Cool

valentine's gifts for kids: Pete the Cat BookThe first time my kids heard about Pete the Cat was when we took a Saturday morning trip to the local kids playhouse downtown. Now, Pete the Cat has become somewhat of a household tradition! We’re always on the hunt for new books about this funky little cat.

Sweetheart Smencils

valentine's gifts for kids- Sweetheart Smencils Like most trending kids toys (Fingerlings, I’m looking at you), I don’t understand why smencils are so popular. I guess they’re pencils that smell yummy? Obviously, I’m officially not a cool mom anymore, but at least I can still understand my kids’ lingo and know what they think is cool.

Pandora Style Bracelet

valentine's gifts for kids- Pandora Style Charm Bracelet My girls love nothing more than to wear things similar to what they see on their fashionista great-aunts (because they certainly don’t see it most days on this yoga pants wearing momma #coolwithit). The aunts regularly go bracelet charm shopping, making this a perfect valentine’s gift for kids who love jewelry.

Crayon Rocks

valentine's gifts for kids- Crayon Rocks Valentine's Day Gift Bag Perfect for little hands, crayon rocks make a particularly good valentine’s gift for kids of the tiny variety (use only with supervision).

While I was shopping around for valentine’s gifts for kids, I also found some insanely cute alternatives to traditional paper valentines. Bonus: they aren’t really any more expensive, either! My kids will love passing out these Valentine bracelets or Valentine critter bookmarks to their friends.

What’s your Valentine’s Day tradition for your kiddos?

    We just made Valentines decorations today! These are really good gift ideas. I got my daughter a teddy bear necklace off Amazon during Christmas time. It was a hot deal!

    I love the books idea!! Unfortunately v-day was never celebrated much in our relationship as there was a bereavement on that day, but by making it a family thing I think it takes the pressure off! Great ideas!!

    I love the “You’re super” book, it always brings a smile. The design your own headphones was a cool new treat that steers away from the average cookies and cupcakes for Valentine’s Day.
