Tomorrow’s Valentine’s Day and that means I can finally give the kids their little goody bags! I always find it fun picking out little things for them. I’ve gotten good at this! Here’s what I came up with this year:
1) Lego Friends – Both Ellie and Lauren are into Legos so I decided to include a small set for each of them. You can find this at Target.
2) Unicorn Stuffed Animal – I was SO not going to get them any stuffed animals but of course I failed at this goal.
3) Mailbox – Since the girls love drawing pictures and writing sweet notes, I thought they could place their notes into these miniature mailboxes.
4) Snacks – Goldfish and M&M’s. Aren’t most kids fans? 😉
And while we’re on the topic of little Valentine’s Day gifts for kids, here’s a peek at what I put together for Ellie and Lauren’s classmates. For Ellie, there’s a sticker sheet, small toy, and an eraser. For Lauren, I put together felt stickers and a lollipop.
We all know that Valentine’s Day isn’t about the gifts, flowers, or chocolate. It is about expression. If there’s one thing I try my best at, it is expressing my love to my kids each and every day. That said, I feel no guilt in buying into the whole thing about giving them little presents for a Hallmark holiday like Valentine’s Day.
What do you think about getting little gifts for kids on Valentine’s Day? Whatever your plans are for Valentine’s Day, I hope you know that you are LOVED! Happy Valentine’s Day weekend, lovely readers! Xoxo, Tee
