Fun No-Treat Gifts For the Kids on Valentine’s Day

Staying away from food related treats on Valentine’s Day, especially when kids are concerned, can be difficult. You may try this for a variety of reasons including avoiding allergies or having to purchase multiple gifts for a variety of children. If you are looking for fun no-treat Valentine’s gifts that are still kid friendly, here are a few ideas.

Heart Shaped Earbuds

If you have just a few children to buy for, then heart shaped earbuds may be an ideal option. These can be purchased at most dollar stores as a novelty item for Valentine’s Day. If you have a kid that spends a lot of time on their tablet or listening to music, this can also be ideal. For boys, the hearts may not be that ideal, but you can find other options like solid red earbuds or something similar.

Red Jenga Games

If you have a technology free game night, or you host a technology free game day, then a jenga game may be an ideal option. This game requires some skill and it can be ideal for two or more kids. If you can’t find a red jenga game, consider getting a jenga game and painting it red. This gives a Valentine’s Day theme while giving a treat for kids that is not food related and challenges their mind.

Pajama Movie Night

This gift idea can be for the whole family, but especially for the kids in your family. Choose a family movie that you all love. This does not have to be a romance movie. It just has to be a movie that you all love. Now, pick out some pajamas for the special night. The pajamas should be themed for Valentine’s Day. For girls they can have hearts, cupids, lips, or anything that fits the theme. For boys, they can be all red or something similar. If you have older kids you can turn the day around and go with a horror movie theme for the night. Make it a “broken Valentine’s Day,” and pick a horror movie. Turn the movie night into something fun that flips the idea of Valentine’s Day a bit.

You can combine these gifts into gift bags as well. The idea is to keep it fun and entertaining so the kids forget about the treats that they may be used to on this special day. When it comes to kids, think outside of the box. Think of the things they love and bring that into the theme of the day.
