If you are looking for a simple yet fun tradition to do for Valentine’s day with your little ones, you will enjoy this Valentine’s Day basket for kids. In this article, you will get ideas for what to put in the basket, when to give the box, and why it is such a special tradition for families.
If I’m honest, I didn’t care much about Valentine’s Day before having kids. Trying to get a dinner reservation was almost impossible and it always felt a little contrived. But now that I am mom, I love Valentine’s Day (pun intended). It’s a great time to teach children about love, friendship, and kindness.
And I enjoy making themed baskets for my kids. Valentine’s Day is no exception. BUT since Easter is right around the corner I try and keep the basket to more semi-practical but cute items. I typically give my girls the basket on the first of the month, so they can enjoy the gifts all month long.
If are looking to make a Valentine’s Day basket and want ideas, here are some items that I’m including this year:

Crocodiles Needs Kisses Too Cutest little story and beautiful illustrations.
Monty and the Poodles Book I just received this book and it is so darling. I also think the story is fun and my 4.5 will love it.
Heart Card Valentine’s day cards are not just for significant others. I plan on writing my girls a note to let them know how much they are loved.
Pink Girls Scrunchie These scrunchies are soooo soft. I love this mama-run company. She has the cutest bows and headbands too.
Valentine’s Bath Bombs My girls are obsessed with bath bombs. But the problem is they are often filled with ingredients I don’t trust. Not these.
Valentine’s Coupons These printable Valentine’s coupons for kids are filled with fun activity-based coupons that your little one can redeem. My favorites are “family movie night” and “game night”. You can also customize and print your own coupons.
Piggy Paint Nail Polish I love this brand of nail polish because it’s completely non-toxic and safe for little fingers.
Personalized Tote I first heard about this from Tami O’Malley and ordered a set for my girls last year. They are the perfect size for little ones and are so reasonably priced. I ended up ordering another as a birthday gift for my niece.
I really love celebrating holidays with kids. I hope this article inspires ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your littles.
