Valentine’s Day is the silliest holiday, but I love using it to show my kids just how much I adore them! Heart-shaped waffles, strawberry milk, a cute outfit for the day, and an on-theme toy or book is how we like to start our Valentine’s Day mornings.
Last year I printed these cute Valentine’s placemats from Lil Luna. I filled them out with things I love about my kids, and even did one for my husband, Andrew!
We also made cinnamon rolls in the shape of hearts which was super easy and delicious.
Today I’m sharing several cute gift ideas for toddler girls and boys. All these items are either things we have or that I’m getting for the kids this year, so I can vouch for them. Without further ado…
Valentines Day Gift Ideas for Toddler Girls
- Red & White Applique Heart Sweater, H&M – My sister got this adorable sweater for Annabelle. It fits true to size and is adorable on! There is also a matching skirt if you’re really feeling the love..
- 2-Piece Sweatshirt Set in Light Pink/Dotted, H&M – This was another outfit my sister gifted Annabelle. (She is the best at choosing cute kids clothes.) It’s super cozy and washes well.
- Lola Dutch, I Love You So Much, Amazon – Annabelle got the first Lola Dutch book for Christmas and we’ve read it every night at bedtime since. A modern Madeline, reschool girls will fall in love with this sweet, adventurous little lady. I’ve already tucked this title away for her for Valentines Day.
- Chuck Taylor Double Strap Sneaker in Pink, Nordstrom – Who doesn’t love a kid in Converse? These tiny Chuck Taylors tickle me pink!
- Gaston, Amazon – My brother-in-law Taylor gifted Annabelle this sweet book, and it’s one of our favorites. With beautiful illustrations and a lovely cadence, Gaston teaches children that it’s okay to be a little different than the rest of your family.
- Pink Gingham Art Smock, Amazon – We have this smock and it’s perfect for keeping our little artist’s clothing clean while creating her masterpieces. Unlike other plastic smocks this is made out of flexible fabric that allows her to move more easily. It would be super cute with a big monogram!

Heat them in the microwave and your kiddos will love snuggling up with them before bed. They also help calm upset tummies and ouchies.

- SmartMax My First Dinosaurs STEM Magnetic Discovery Animal Set, Walmart – My friend Cadie got this for Callahan for his first birthday and it’s been a hit with both kids. The kids love to mix and match the dinasaurs and it’s been a great way to teach them about magnets and force.
