Valentine’s Day is a holiday that many people choose to celebrate. I love doing special things with my family on Valentine’s Day because it’s my way of showing I love them. The kids really enjoy sharing Valentines, goodies, and gifts with friends at homeschool co-op.
Basic Gift Ideas For The Special Children In Your Life
As you start planning gifts and surprises, consider what your kids enjoy most. What color is their favorite? Is there a special activity or sport they enjoy? What are their favorite foods and treats? There are so many options and the possibilities are endless! Also consider some of the following:
Experience Gift: This could be something unique or something familiar, depending on how adventurous your children are. (I’ve got 4 who LOVE roller coasters and thrills and then 1 who is terrified! So while I can surprise the kids with some excitement, I need to keep in mind that one won’t enjoy most of the same things as the others.) Consider a waterpark hotel stay, escape game room, or even just a movie they’ve been wanting to see.
Food Gift: Create a basket of all the sweet treats or goody favorites you may limit on a normal day and have a ‘sugar day’.
Matching Pajamas: Coordinating clothes are so much fun, especially when you can enjoy the experience with your family. Matching pajamas are especially sweet! (We’ve got a discount code for you below so keep reading.)
A Card To Remember: No matter what you settle on, be sure you include a card your honey will be talking about for a very long time! You can find some of the best over at Lovepop! Kids and adults alike LOVE these cards!
