And if you’re looking to surprise your significant other, teen, or bff, hey we’ve got you covered with the best Valentine’s Day gifts for them too!

Favorite Valentine’s Gifts for Kids on Etsy
Conversation Heart Crayons
Our love for Art2theExtreme runs deep, and this sweet Valentine’s gift for kids gives us one more reason to adore them. They come in rainbow colors or a mix of red, pink and purple; but reach out if you have something custom in mind for your little Valentine.
Handmade Wooden “Follow Your Heart” Kaleidoscope
This is such a creative Valentine’s Day gift idea for curious kids who don’t want the lovey-dovey stuff. Handmade and engraved with your choice of four sayings, this is a keepsake gift supporting a maker in Brooklyn who is unfortunately fighting a ton of counterfeits and cheap knockoffs..
($37.62, Dreamer Kids)
Personalized Wooden Tic Tac Toe Game
We love this so affordable, personalized Valentine’s gift for kids so much, we also included it in the best Valentine’s gifts for boys who aren’t into frilly stuff. But hey, get your daughter the blue or get your son the pink. They’re all beautiful.
($13.99, Bloom Owl)
Valentine’s Day Scented Play-Dough
Select a four-pack of handmade play-dough in yummy scents like strawberry, cinnamon hearts, chocolate cupcake, and candy hearts for a fun Valentine’s Day gift for kids from an Etsy Star Seller based in NY. Add personalization to the gift box too.
($22 for 4-pack, Play Hunters Way)
Personalized Heart Dishes for Kids
Made in the USA from food-safe plastic, this personalized collection of plates, mugs, and bowls are adorable for younger kids. Also featured in our guide to the best Valentine’s gifts for boys.
($27.95 each, Harper Livingston)
Handmade (Safe!) Wooden Slingshot With Felt Balls
Better than Cupid’s bow and arrow, this felt ball slingshot reinvents the old school handmade toy safely, replacing rocks with colorful handmade felted balls. Add a handmade wooden target, in case you’d like your kids aiming at something other than their siblings.
Wooden Love Bunny Puzzle
Instead of another stuffed anima, consider this adorable two-piece beechwood bunny heart puzzle. It will look so cute sitting on a dresser when not being carried from room to room — and doubles as fun Easter decor!
($16.80, IAmWooDen USA)
Personalized Valentine’s Cookie Gift Set for Kids
Six fresh chocolate chip cookies await, inside a tin with your choice of a dozen colorful, personalized labels. After the treats are eaten, your Valentine will have a small container to stash trinkets and treasures.

Valentine’s Day mailbox and mail
This mailbox from a small woman-owned Minnesota shop is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for kids, able to be personalized, and ready to stuff with individual felt “letters” for creative play. (Do kids even know what mail is anymore?) I love that you can use it through the year, surprising your child with little love notes when inspirations strikes.
($58, Happy Monster Company)
Personalized Paint Your Own Valentine Puzzle
Because each piece can be painted separate from the finished puzzle, it’s not just a cute Valentine’s gift for kids, it’s a good Valentine’s craft for younger kids who can be a little more enthusiastic with the paint.
($17.95, Partial P Co)
Valentine Donut Play Food
Do nut pass these cute felt donuts by if you’re looking for one of the all-time best Valentine’s gift for kids: A sugar-free treat that builds imagination. Whether you buy one or a whole dozen, it’s a perfect addition to your kids’ play food collection.
