A Garden Full of Love
At Chasing Fireflies, you can get a Heart Garden for $12. It comes in a heart shaped container, perfect for Valentine’s Day gifts, and contains seeds, soil, and instructions.

Another option is the Wish Upon a Seed set from Uncommon Goods. At $19, this kit includes 8 different types of flower seeds.
Personalized Photo Gifts
If you spent hours trying to solve the Rubik’s Cube as a child (or cheated and moved the colored stickers!), a Personalized Photo Rubik’s Cube from Personalization Mall will be a fun way to share with your child. For $30, 6 photos can be placed on a working Rubik’s Cube. Kids will enjoy trying to solve the Rubik’s cube and fix the pictures. There are other fun options for Valentine’s Day gifts, including customized magazine covers and Photo Puzzles.
Junior Chef Gear
A junior chef will love the Playful Chef Cooking Kit. It costs just under $40 at Amazon and contains an apron, 10 cooking tools small enough for kids to use, recipes, and color coded measuring cups and spoons. Have baking supplies on hand so the kids can start baking immediately!
Ice Cream Fun
The Smooshed Ice Cream Set is a fun way for kids to make their own customized ice cream, just like ice cream shops. It comes with a marble board and two mixing scoops. At under $15 on Amazon, this makes an affordable Valentine’s Day gift for kids. The Ice Cream Ball is another fun gift idea for children. Available from Sports Authority for $35, it comes in many colors and allows kids to make their own ice cream by rolling and shaking it.
Digital Photo Key Chain
With many options available under $20, a digital photo key chain is a fun Valentine’s Day gift idea for children. Amazon carries a heart shaped photo key chain for $19. It holds up to 56 photos so your kids can always have pictures of their favorite things close to them.
A personalized book is a great way to make reading more fun for kids. At Personally Yours Books, you can enter information about your child which is integrated into the story. Each book is only $15.95. You can also make your child feel special with personalized music CDs.
Stuffed animals are always a hit with kids. Build-A-Bear allows you to either build the stuffed animal at the store or order from their website. Their pink Hugs Fur You Monkey is a great pick for Valentine’s Day.
