Non-Candy Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Kids!

Non-Candy Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Kids!

 

 

I have been on the lookout for some cute ideas for Non-Candy Valentine Gift Ideas for Kids.  My kids got enough candy in their Christmas stockings (from grandparents) to seriously last 6 months!  I’m pretty sure they have candy from Halloween that still hasn’t been eaten. The last thing I want to turn around and give them this Valentine’s day is more candy! So here is a list of some cute and frugal gift ideas for your kids that are not candy, with some personalized ideas to make your gift more meaningful as well!

This isn’t just any Valentine, though, and it has to be perfect—it’s for Snarlina, his beast friend in the whole wide world.  This is a very cute book that the boys will love since the valentines are filled with slime and spiders – perfect for a Monster valentine!  🙂
