If you ask me, there’s nothing as cheerful as shopping for Valentine’s Day gifts for babies. Necessary? No! Adorable? So much yes. And as a mom of little ones who really needs an excuse for some cheer and celebration — especially with no date night in sight — I’ve had a great time rounding these up with my own year-old daughter in mind.
Yeah it may seem a little more frivolous than finding Valentine’s gifts for kids who are a bit older. But I think we’re craving the celebrations that help create normalcy during very abnormal times, and help us to have something to look forward to.
(Hint hint, to grandmothers, aunts and godparents!)
So hit your local drugstore, make your own keepsake card, or browse these special Valentine’s Day gifts for babies that I found. I think they’d be lovely for younger babies, toddlers or even expecting moms — as long as you get her something just for her, too.
Ideally something in the carb family.

I’ve been all about sustainable wooden toys lately, and so these wooden stacking hearts at Little Ones Wood Co. instantly caught my eye. Protecting the planet and supporting a small Etsy shop with a cute Valentine’s gift for babies? Sold.
He may be busy training with (spoiler alert!) Luke Skywalker these days , but I still can’t get enough of baby Yoda. (Nope, not calling him Grogu, sorry.) Snag these baby Yoda pajamas at my all-time favorite kids’ pajama source Hanna Andersson for a Valentine’s gift that’s as practical as it is cute.

Take it from a mom with small children, practical gifts are VERY much appreciated. Especially if they’re as sweet as this heart-shaped silicone bowl by Chicco with the all-important suction base that makes clean-up for mom so much easier. It’s really a gift for her too.
Note that Chicco is currently the sponsor of our 2021 Best Baby Gifts Guide but we just happened to like this cute bowl.

Baby mobiles are another gift people don’t always think about, but they make such a cute decorative touch and really do keep the babes entertained. I love this handmade hearts + rainbows mobile at Craftspring.
Whether you use it as a drool napkin or fashion accessory, this heart bib for babies is so perfect for Valentine’s Day. I like that it’s gender-neutral, too, making it a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for babies who are already here, or even one on the way. Check it out at The Blooming Indigo Etsy shop.

You can never own too many swaddles; we use ours as breastfeeding covers, spit-up towels, and impromptu shade for hot days. This heart print baby swaddle from The Tot looks especially luxurious in a soft, organic cotton. And hey, maybe if the baby gets a little extra sleep in that swaddle, you might have a more traditional Valentine’s Day after all. But probably not.
