It’s almost Valentine’s Day - a day to show love and appreciation for those you care about.
Sure, you can give flowers to your significant other. And, we get it: candy is a great go-to for kids. But, what if you want to give children something that promotes well-being and love - in a creative way?
We’re here to help you out with 6 last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts for the children and teens in your life. Take a look.
1. Plush Bouquets
While regular floral bouquets may not appeal to kids, plush bouquets sold by ThinkGeek will certainly make the cut! The concept is simple: stuffed toys of different themes are presented in a bouquet style. This idea is not only adorable, but thoughtful too. Kids will be thrilled to receive their own special bouquets. With 12 themes to choose from, you are bound to find one that your children will like.
2. Get Crafty With Valentine’s Day Slime
Slime-making is a very popular activity among kids these days. Fortunately, it is very easy and (fairly) mess-free to make! Your kids will have a blast creating and playing with Valentine’s Day-themed slime. This gift idea provides both a family-oriented activity and a fun keepsake for children to play with and enjoy afterwards.
3. Chocolate-dipped Pretzels
We know that chocolate isn’t always healthy but on a special occasion - like Valentine’s Day - why not serve up chocolate in a way that’s fun and tasty?
With this in mind, we suggest a Pretzel Kids Valentine’s Day, complete with chocolate-dipped pretzels! You can make and decorate your own treats and even buy healthy pretzels in the natural food aisle of your local grocery store. You can even mix it up by dipping strawberries, bananas, kiwis and other fruits of your choosing.
4. Pretzel Kids!
What's better than celebrating Valentine’s Day in Pretzel Kids style? We offer special events and can bring a Valentine’s Day themed class to your child’s school, scout troop, daycare center or anyplace else! This experiential gift is bound to bring joy and fun into your day of love! Check out our website for more information.
5. Heart Eyes Emoji Pillow
Nothing says “I love you” like a good ol’ heart eye emoji - well, at least your kids will agree with this! In this day and age, emojis are extremely popular with kids. By giving them an emoji pillow, you will be showing them love in the text-talk language that they’re familiar with.
6. Let’s Hear it For Books!
Here at Pretzel Kids, we love books! There are plenty of Valentine’s Day themed-books available for kids but to get a jump-start, check out The Day it Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond, Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink by Diane deGroat and Happy Valentine’s Day, Mouse by Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond.
