We all know holidays are full of sweets, and Valentine’s Day is definitely no exception. Whether your kids trade valentine’s goodies at school or you surprise them with an after school chocolate heart, there is candy ALL around us on V-Day. While giving “gifts” on Valentine’s Day isn’t required, it can be a fun way to surprise your kids without the future sugar hangover.
For holidays like Valentine’s Day or Easter, I love to gift items I’d likely buy anyway – new swim suits, towels, goggles, etc. It’s a great way to let you kids have something fun to open without breaking the bank. I typically choose small items and bundle them together in a basket or new sand pail, and it looks cute and it’s also functional.
