Valentine Gift Ideas for Kids – all under $10

It’s almost Valentine’s Day! I like to get the kids a little something but I don’t usually want to add to the sugar rush. Between the school parties and pink heart cookies… there are enough sweets to last until the end of February. No I prefer to give fun and (maybe even practical) Valentine’s gifts. Did you see the Stocking Stuffer Ideas for kids I posted last month? Anything from that list could easily be used as Valentine gift ideas for kids too, but I wanted to give you a few new ideas. Add your favorite Valentine gifts for kids into the comment section. (That helps me with shopping too!) This post contains affiliate links. By ordering from these links you are helping to support Thanks!

Great list of Valentine gift ideas for kids! Love that there is no candy on the list!

10 Valentine Gift Ideas for Kids

Mad Libs. We introduced M and M to Mad Libs over Christmas break. They loved every minute of it. I can’t wait to get them each their own book! Check out these four different versions (you can find Mad Libs for almost any interest)! Happily Ever Mad Libs, Dog Ate My Mad LibsMad About Animals Mad LibsMad libs from outer space. The bonus of course is they are practicing reading and writing while they laugh!

Books. Books are always high up on our gift list. Some of our favorite reads so far this year are Penny and Her DollThe Case of the Case of Mistaken Identity (Brixton Brothers), and Fancy Nancy: Nancy Clancy Sees the Future.

Accessories for their favorite thing. Valentines is the perfect time to add to a little something to the toys they already love. Maybe it’s a few special Lego pieces from the Pick a Brick Shop or a new bag of Polka Dot Bands for the Rainbow Loom.

New Card Game. We love Phase 10 Card Game and Uno Card Game. (I’ve heard Spot It is great but it’s a little over $10. ;))

Cute stuffed animal. This Love Monkey is adorable! And for the dog lovers… Valentines Sloth.

Mini photo album to keep pics of all the people they love! These mini brag books come in a variety of colors and cost less than $5!

Playdough. Make some red, white and pink homemade playdough (we have a favorite Kool Aid Playdough Recipe) or buy Play-Doh Pack.

A brand new art tool! Have you tried Paint Pens? We haven’t and Valentines just might be the best time to introduce them!

Strategy Puzzle. ThinkFun Adams Cube and IQ Twist both have great reviews.

New Music. How about a new CD? Kidz Bop and Best of the Laurie Berkner Band are two we love!
