Great boy stuff for Valentine’s Day? Reader Q+A

I always find so much cute stuff for girls, especially for Valentine’s Day, but I don’t know what to give the boys. -Shannon

As a mama of a son, I am definitely on the lookout for great boys’ items for Valentine’s Day. And while you had a great idea for a handmade gift in the comments of our post about handmade Valentine’s crafts for girls, you inspired me to look for even more items for the little guys in our life. Hope you find something in what I’ve dug up for you! -Christina

Make and Takes monsters

Want a project the whole class will love to make? Get them involved with these easy-but-fun Monster Cards (also seen at top) to make for a special adult in their lives. I am certain my son would cover that dude in about 15 googly eyes.

Shim + Sons robots

I love these little handmade robotic treats that Shim + Sons made together. The barcode font put on little stickers is such an awesome idea! Plus, what child doesn’t want to get a little candy with their Valentine?

Lego I love you

My kindergartner has a serious crush on all things Lego. I love this little Love You Lego set which spells out the sweetest message. (Though it will be more fun to see what else he tries to spell.)

Personalized Monster Cards

Looking to send a little scary note that boys would love to give or get? I like the Personalized Monster Cards from Delightfully Noted, maybe tucked beside a sweet treat to show that these monsters really aren’t bad guys.

Olliegraphic superhero valentine

Olliegraphic’s super-personalized Superhero card (match hair color! eyes!) makes me smile with its little “This card will NOT self-destruct” message. Get the printable version and you can take care of the entire class in a few minutes. (And psst, mamas of girls, there is a version for you too.)

Rock n Roll printable Valentine's Day cards

“Free” and “printable-at-home” are music to my ears, which is why I’m eyeing these Rock-n-Roll Printables from Living Locurto. I would include the sweetest photo of my son that I can find, but if I don’t even have time for that much, there is a photo-free version. Love.

For more Valentine’s Day goodies, don’t miss the great licensed-character-free Valentine’s Day cards Kristen found!

    Not just for boys! I’d love to do a monster iron-on applique with googly eye for my daughters! Great ideas.

    Thank you!!!!!!! I’m all over the Legos for my son! Too bad they are a too expensive to pass out to the whole class. The robot and monster valentines are fabulous.
