valentine gifts for kids
Finding Valentine gifts for kids can play tricks on your mind and your wallet. Most retailers gear up for the day by stocking plenty of candy and stuffed animals which no kid really needs more of. You can come up with great Valentine gifts for kids without even going to a department store.
It is important to try to take your budget into consideration before you set out shopping for the perfect Valentine gifts for kids, especially if you have more than one child. You can go broke on little stuff alone, let alone the larger items typical of the Valentine gift giving experience. Set a price limit for each child and stick to it to avoid going broke.
When you think of your kids and what they enjoy, try to see if you can include yourself into their presents. If you have a theme park or amusement park nearby, consider buying tickets for the whole family to go together the weekend following Valentine’s Day. Make a full day of it by going out for breakfast together, packing a cooler with lunch and snacks and heading to the park when it opens to get the most out of your entertainment dollar. When the park closes, think of yourself and avoid doing dishes by grabbing a quick dinner at a fast food joint on the way home. You will have spent a whole day with your family, which is great for you. Your kids will have had the chance to do something they enjoyed and they’ll love that you did it for them.
If you have artsy craftsy children or younger kids, consider a day at the ceramics shop as Valentine gifts for kids. You can book times at ceramics shops to pick out pre-formed ceramic items, paint them however you like and have them fired. When the day is over, you will have spent time with your kids and you’ll all have a token of a nice day you spent together that can serve as a memento of Valentine’s Day.
Whatever activities your kids enjoy, they’ll enjoy them even more if you try to do something with them. Valentine gifts for kids don’t always have to be stuffed animals and candy. Boys would love a day at a college sports event while girls would enjoy a shopping day at the mall. If you have a little fun with your kids, you’ll have the perfect Valentine gifts for kids.
