5 Valentine's Day Gift Basket Ideas For Kids

We usually don't celebrate Valentine's Day but I decided to go the extra mile this year and I made my daughter a Valentine's Day gift basket! (Plus giving gifts is my favorite way to show someone I care about them.)

Here is what we put inside as well as some other suggestions your kids may love. 

1) Blind Boxes or Blind Bags

Surprise toys are all the rage these days and there are so many of them that you're sure to find one your child loves, or perhaps add to their already-started collection.

2) Playdoh

You can usually find single tubs of Play-Doh for under $1 at most superstores, like Target or Walmart. I went with pink as it's Valentine's Day and our daughter doesn't have a color preference, but you can always pick your kid's favorite color instead! 

3) Socks

Target has cute Valentine's Day-themed socks in their dollar spot. Socks weren't originally on the list, but they had dinosaur ones and our daughter loves dinosaurs, so for $1 I thought why not?

4) Chocolate and Candy

What's Valentine's Day without some chocolate and candy? I went with a Kinder Egg, Kinder Bueno, a Pez dispenser, and an M&M plastic heart. I figured she would love the plastic heart for putting her toys in later, so it was two gifts in one.

5) Sticker or Coloring Books

These work great as a larger backdrop and are inexpensive. Get a Valentine's Day-themed one or just pick one based on your child's current interests.
