Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to let your loved ones know you care, so if you’re looking for a treat for your littlest sweethearts, consider one of these five picks. From an adorable picture book to an indoor ziplining adventure, these Valentine’s Day gifts for kids will help make the holiday extra memorable.


Maria Baer, owner of The Baer Minimalist:

“I have followed Nicole Lewis, the owner of Art 2 The Extreme, for a number of years and am continually impressed with her creativity (but also her turn-around time, her packaging, and her ability to catch Oprah’s eye)! Her name crayon sets are the perfect Valentine’s treat for the littles in your life, and the ‘Classroom Crayon Stix’ are the most adorable valentine your kiddo could package up for their class. I mean, ‘I’m Drawn to You,’ and ‘You’re So Sharp’ imprinted on crayons. It doesn’t get any cuter than that!”
