Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I am so excited! It has always been one of my favorite holidays. What is better than celebrating love with the people you love?!
When you were growing up, was Valentines Day a big deal in your house? Or was it more of a holiday you just kind of had at school but that is it? Was it something that was just for adults? What about in your current home? For me, when I was growing up, my mom made holidays so special for us. Valentine’s was no exception! I think that plays a big part in why I still love it so much today!
We had the best Valentine’s tradition! So today I thought it would be fun to share one of our traditions + some simple Valentine’s Day gift ideas for the whole family! Every year we would make yummy treats + Valentine’s Cards so we could package them up for the neighbors. Instead of delivering them like a normal gift, we would doorbell ditch them with the little surprise. We LOVED it and thought it was the best thing ever as kids. Fast forward to my time as a parent bringing this tradition to my little family. I had NO IDEA this was not the norm. My naive self literally thought it was something everyone did for Valentines Day! I couldn’t figure out why nobody ever did it to us in return!
My little people love it so much, that I had to keep the Valentines tradition alive, and I even do something similar for them. I package up a little gift, and some yummy treats. Then I doorbell ditch them with their own Valentine’s Day surprises too! It has been so fun!
Now let’s talk ideas! Since my kids cover every stage from just out of toddler (cue the tears) to teen, I have rounded up gift guides for both boys AND girls in every age group! So be sure to check them all out below and let me know your favorites!

We hope these little ideas help you out and you enjoy your Valentine’s Day with your crew! Sending extra love from our team to you for your support and being part of this community too!
