The Best Kids Valentines Day Ideas



Valentine’s is almost upon us and it’s time to spoil the apple of your eye. With classic pink and blush tones to precious little heart printed dresses and tees, your kids are going to feel the love this Valentine's Day. Pair function and fashion with our incredible Valentine’s Day range.

What does Valentine's Day celebrate? 

“Valentine’s Day occurs every February 14. Across the United States and in other places around the world, candy, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine.” -

Valentine’s Day is commonly thought of as the celebration of love and is the perfect opportunity to teach your little ones about love and how to give and receive it.

Teaching Kids the Meaning Of Love

What is love? Whether your answer is “don’t hurt me” or “a smoke made with the fume of sighs” or “blind”, we all know explaining love is hard. And we all know how easy it is for our little curious kids to ask hard questions. So it’s important to be prepared on how to describe love in a way your kids will understand. 

As with every explanation, the KISS method is the perfect way to explain love - Keep It Simple, Stupid! “The key is to use words and concrete examples they can understand and to recognize that the child’s model for love is how you treat them,” explains Scott Carroll, a child psychiatrist and physician. 

The first step is to start with what your kids know best “Love is when you really care about someone or something,” Carroll suggests as an opener, “so you try very hard to take care of them and keep them safe, just like how I take care of you and keep you safe.”

Conversations should center around care and expressing love through action.
