How to Celebrate Valentine’s Day With The Kids

Who says Valentine’s Day is only for adults and couples? Chocolate, flowers, hearts… the 14th of February is a visual delight for humans of any age! After all, kids can feel affection and will surely enjoy spreading warmth and receiving appreciation, too. Let the children join in the Valentine’s fun by surprising them with one of the cute little V-Day photo gifts listed below, or help them customise a unique Valentine’s treat for a loved one of their choice such as Granny or their beloved pet.

Matching Keyrings

Have them pick a favourite photo of them and their best friend and customise a matching pair of keyrings to share. Or use them as personalised school bag tags.

Cushions & Blankets

Customise a blanket with pictures and add some coordinating cushions printed with their pet’s name to make their bed feel extra inviting and cosy.

Personalised Tin

Fill a personalised tin with their preferred chocolates or sweets. This idea could also be really fun to create with them as a lovely surprise for an older relative such as a grandmother, grandfather, or godparent.

Customise a bunch of pin badges for them so they can add some style and flair to their backpack or coat. Again, you could also have your child customise matching badges for themselves and their friends.

Magic Mug

Similar to our personalised tin idea, you could fill this ‘magic’ mug with hot chocolate mix and some marshmallows for your child. This heat sensitive photo mug could also be fun for your child to customise and fill with treats for their grandparent or godparent.
