25 Unique Valentine Gifts For Tweens For Under $25

When our kids were little we’d celebrate Valentine’s Day by baking a cake or making cookies. They were as happy as clams. But now, they are getting older and dipping their toes into the world of grown-ups. They know mom and dad buy each other gifts to show their love for one another. So, they want to explore what that’s all about.

As a family we don’t aim to make Valentine’s Day into a major gift giving holiday. However, we’ve found that getting our kids a small gift is a good way to model love and appreciation for one another. Plus, gifts are my love language.

In our house my husband buys our daughter a stuffed animal every year. She’s ga-ga for them and this has become a tradition between the two of them. He also buys her a rose. I purchase a small gift for my son, usually candy, to show my love for him as well.

You may have a different tradition in your house or perhaps you haven’t established one yet. It’s never too late to start. Valentine’s Day is a fun way to show your love with a gift and a good way to model selfless gift giving to your kids without breaking the bank.
