Adults are great at making each other feel special during the holidays, but what about the kids? Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that sort of gets brushed under the rug for kids. However, this year I want to do something special for my kids and that’s why they will get Valentine’s Day Gift Baskets. We’ve all heard of Easter Baskets, so along the same lines, but with a twist. Here are 5 tips for creating your own Valentine’s Day Gift Basket for your kids.
- Make it Child Specific: One thing I’ve noticed with my kids is that they do not like getting the same thing as each other. I make it a point when I do something, especially for V-day, to make it child specific. What one child gets, the other one doesn’t need to get. This makes them feel super special.
- Get Creative with the Valentine’s Day Basket: I love that you can be so creative with a V-day basket. There is so much you can do or add to it. I brainstorm a few ideas for baskets before I execute the ideas on my kid’s basket. Pinterest is a great resource for brainstorming this sort of thing.
- Get My Husband’s Opinion: My husband is awesome at knowing what the boys in our family will like more than I do. I always ask for his opinion because I want it to be special and I want the kids to love it! He has always been great with this sort of thing.
- Go Crazy with Hershey’s Chocolate- There’s only one kind of chocolate we use around her for Valentine’s Day and that is Hershey’s There are so many treats to help create a beautiful gift basket for each child in your life. I can’t wait to add in Hershey’s Kisses Conversation Candies and Reese’s Conversation Cups too, these are new this year and I know my kids will love them. I plan on sending in the Hershey’s Kisses Conversation Candies and with their school treats as well. I encourage you to make this Valentine’s Day sweeter by surprising your kids with a Valentine’s Day Basket.
- Add in a Note: One thing my kids love from me is “love notes.” I will also add one to their Valentine’s Day Basket this year!
