Valentine’s Day is upon us, and while candy has traditionally been the go-to gift (especially for kids, and TBH, me), it’s time to think outside the chocolate box. This year, parents are ditching the predictable sugar rush for more inspired last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts for kids that will have them forgetting all about those heart-shaped sweets.
The focus is on presents that spark joy, creativity, and maybe even a bit of learning (subtly, though, so the kids don’t catch on ). From cuddly companions that promise endless hugs without the sticky fingers to gadgets and gizmos that ignite young minds with excitement, a new trend is emerging. It involves scouting for last minute Valentine’s Day gifts and creative activities for kids that promise to be a hit, far beyond the fleeting pleasure of a candy binge.
So, if you haven’t scored a V-Day gift for your littles ones just yet, Betches has got you covered. From viral Squishmallows, to games, silly putty, and even an early grooming kit for the boys, these are the best last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts for kids. And don’t worry, they all offer 2-day shipping so you’re in the clear.
