Valentine’s Day is about 2 1/2 weeks away! Can you believe it!? The holidays were such a welcome dose of joy within the last year and I was honestly extra sad to see them go. I think that’s why I feel more excited for Valentine’s Day this year than ever before! 2021 also marks my first Valentine’s Day as a mother. Last Valentine’s Day, we knew we were pregnant but little Rowan still felt like something far off in the distance. I’m so excited to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my sweet little valentine this year! I honestly could not ask for a better Valentine’s Day duo than Edwin and Rowan. How did I get so lucky to have the two best boys?!
This year, instead of creating a Valentines gift guide for her, I decided to expand my gift guide and create a gift guide for Valentine’s Day for you and your littles! This post has everything from Valentine’s Day pajamas to dreamy home goods to creative crafts to sweet treats. I included lots of ideas for your kiddos to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember. I also have a handful of lovely ideas for you. Hint, hint: pass this post on to your love if they need gift ideas for you!
Valentine’s Day For You And Your Littles
I hope you enjoy my gift guide for Valentine’s Day for you and your littles! If you don’t have a little, don’t fret. There are a ton of items in this guide for you that I know you’ll love! What do you have your eye on for Valentine’s Day this year? I’d love to hear if you think I forgot anything! I’m still formulating what I should do for Edwin but I have a few ideas for little things around the house and yard that I think would bring a smile to his face. Share all your brilliant ideas!

My favorite bakery, Persephone Bakery, makes the most delicious sweet treats. I can personally attest to how wonderful their cookies are. These simple but sweet heart shaped cookies are a great little Valentine surprise for kiddos.

Valentine’s Day for you and your littles can be extra special this year, no matter what the state of the world is. In fact, Valentine’s Day is often thought of as a commercialized, fluff holiday but I really think it’s so much more than that. Sure, it’s a great excuse to treat yourself, your galentines, your love, or your littles to a nice gift. However, it’s really a beautiful opportunity to stop, slow down, and show some appreciation for the people you love most in this world. For me, that’s Edwin and Rowan. I can’t imagine living a single day without them.
This Valentine’s Day, I encourage y’all to not only shower your loved ones is sweet gifts but to really shower them in boundless amounts of love and endless hugs, kisses, and snuggles. Cheers to Valentine’s Day 2021! I hope you enjoy the holiday and I hope this Valentine’s Day gift guide gave you some gifting inspiration! When all else fails, Valentine’s Day pajamas are always a hit (just like the precious Valentine’s print pajamas Rowan and I are wearing in this post).
