So, what are you getting the KIDS for Valentine’s Day?
Here are some ideas to get you started on shopping for your kids, nieces, nephews, grandchildren or other children in your life.
There are some really cute ideas around the mall this year — of the heart theme and others that are fun gifts from the heart. I’m leaning toward pairing the quadruple Hearts Lollipops from Crate & Barrel (Level 2) with a find at Brookstone (Level 3) for my 7-year-old son (I’ll reveal it later in this post) and likely something from Justice (Level 3) for my 5-year-old fashionista.
At Justice, you’ll find a ton of Valentine’s Day themed gifts for little girls and tweens. Take a look.
In the video, I mentioned that everything is 40% off. Here’s how you can get the discount. Through 2/8, mention that you follow this blog and give code 287 when you’re at the register. Then, starting on 2/9, the entire store will be 40% off for a limited time. To give you an idea of the deals you can get, the lip gloss set in the video is regularly $11. The discount brings it down to $6.60. The discounted price on the Happy Nappers and Pillow Pets, also seen in the clip, is $19.20.
With every $50 you spend at Justice between now and 4/8, receive two coupons, each for $25 off a $50 purchase, to be redeemed during designated time periods in the spring.
For the rest of my son’s gift, I bought a Paper Jamz guitar at Brookstone. They are 50% off right now and run just $4.99. Each of the six different styles has three built-in songs. You can also make your own music. Really. I had to read the product description twice… It almost seems too good to be true. The “paper-thin stringless guitar uses circuit-embedding technology that allows you to make and play real music.” This gift is sure to strike a sweet chord!
HEXBUGs are always a hit at my house and make a cute gift for your love bugs! Brookstone carries a wide variety of these battery powered robotic creatures. They range from $7.99 – $24.99.
Build-A-Bear Workshop (Level 3) has some beary cute Valentine’s Day friends. The Kisses for You Puppy and Kitty are both $18 and Hello Kitty is $23. Clothing and accessories are sold separately.
Gymboree (Level 3) is also a great source for Valentine’s gifts. Your little girl can wear this heart necklace ($10.95) on Valentine’s Day and to make a sweet statement year-round. There is also a matching bracelet ($9) and other heart themed accessories.
If you want to stick with the heart theme for your little boy, how cute are these Ahoy Matey pjs from Gymboree ($14.49).
At Papyrus (Level 3), you’ll find a fun spread of Valentine’s gifts as well as some general puzzles and small toys. A sweet bear holding Godiva chocolates ($25) caught my attention.
Back at Crate & Barrel, I have a final find to show you. Consider kicking off Valentine’s Day with a hot chocolate for the kids and mochas for mom & dad. Crate & Barrel has matching heart themed mugs in regular and small sizes. The adults ones are $4.95 each. The child size ones are $3.95 a piece.
