Valentine’s Gift Idea for a Child

We usually get our kids a small heart-shaped box of Russell Stover’s because (it’s a classic, and) that’s what my mom always got my sisters and me. But if you do that too, and want to put something with it, or are looking for a non-candy gift option, I came across something I think would make a great Valentine’s Gift for a child.

My son, Charlie (5), loves – I mean LOVES – sweets of any kind. He’s also quite the entrepreneur, but more on that in my next post. Back to candy – he’s like a bloodhound. If you go in another room and open a piece of candy, I guarantee you he would hear the rustling of the wrapper or smell the sugar and come see what you have. And the kid loves cake like nobody’s business.

For Christmas, Charlie got a Cake Decorating Melissa and Doug Sticker Book.


It has a pad with pages of cakes, cupcakes and ice cream cones…




and several pages of stickers with which to adorn them.


Cute, right? He got it out to play with it the other day and I thought:
Well, this will last all of 5 minutes!

An HOUR AND A HALF later, he was still going. He decorated nearly every page in the book in one sitting and had a ball.


It occurred to me as I watched him do it, that this would make a great Valentine’s Day gift – assuming it’s reasonably priced. So, I looked it up at the store it came from and it’s only $4.99 (shipping is $2.50). So for $7.50 you can have a really cute gift to put with some chocolates that comes right to your door. Winner winner chicken dinner!

So, do you get your kids a heart box or some other candy for Valentine’s Day, or do do something else?
