10 Handmade Candy Free Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

It’s almost February y’all and it’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day.  Up until I became addicted to Pinterest, my children did the traditional, straight out of the box, Valentine’s for their classmates.  It was simple, didn’t take much time and my children didn’t seem to mind.

Now that I’m all Martha Stewart wannabe, I decided that my children and I would make handmade Valentine’s for their classmates.  Thanks to all the wonderful, inspiring ideas on Pinterest, I feel we can actually succeed!

Here are my 10 favorite handmade candy free Valentine’s Day gift ideas:

To each of these ladies who have come up with these unique and adorable Valentine’s Day ideas, thank you! With the rising obesity rates in children these days, it makes me feel good that I can still send a nice Valentine to school with my children without contributing any additional sugar or calories!

We’ve decided to go the with the Pencil Valentine because not only is it adorable, it will encourage children to write!  To me, it’s a win/win situation.

Which handmade Valentine’s Day gift idea is your favorite?

    those are great ideas, but the one with the paint samples bothers me. I am guessing they didn’t buy them just took them. that seems inappropriate to me. If they bought them then I’m OK with it.
