Are you getting your LO(s) Valentine gifts?

I bought Audrey a canvas picture for her room of a baby bird, That is her nickname.

I think I am going to get Violet some giant animal figures off amazon.

Oliver is getting cash because he is saving up for a Nook/Kindle.

Re: Are you getting your LO(s) Valentine gifts?

  • No... we're saving money for a basement remodel and Brooke is way too young to understand anyway.  We will just give extra hugs and kisses.

  • I will probably get her a musical V-day card, from that funny article HA posted!

  •  I think we will probably get something for SD from us and Nora.  SD already gave something to Nora.  It was a kitty pillow she was able to color in for Nora.

  • I love an excuse to do some extra shopping for gifts.  No idea what I will get yet but we like to do some kind of "treat" to recognize all the major holidays.
  • No, but her grandparents will.  She'll probably get a new book or a cute shirt from them. 

    When she's older I'll give her a card or note and a special chocolate or something, but nothing more than a couple bucks.

  • will get DS something but I am not sure what. I have been wanting to get him the Melissa and Doug dairy foods so maybe I will just get him that for V-day.

  • Probably just something very small for each kid, like a book or something similar.  DS' bday is the week after, and he's going to be getting a ton of gifts from family/friends, so we'll be very modest with V-Day.

  • No. While love my boys, I am not their girlfriend. Vday is for lovers.

  • Yes, the Little People school bus.  He is obsessed with it and I would probably buy it anyway so it's a good excuse for a gift! :)

    My mom likes to get the grandkids little gifts and I know she is getting A a musical pusher/roller.  

     

  • We don't celebrate it. Hallmark holiday.

  • We were talking about this last night. DH wants to get him a stuffed animal, but I figure he has enough stuffed animals.  I'm pushing for a book.

    I grew up in a home that recognized that Valentine's Day is a day to show everyone who is important to you how much you appreciate them.  It's not a romantic holiday.  I still exchange Valentine's Day cards/gifts with my family.  I love looking at it this way because then there's no excuse for sadness or bitterness!

  • No, but I bought heart shaped sip cup to give to his cousin (we'll all be on vacation together on the 14), and I got some Elmo valentines to give to my sisters and mom "from" G.

  • Lillian loves mylar baloons and flowers, so I figured I'd get a very cliche V-day gift for my toddler.  I am not even sure what to get DH.

  • We'll get him something small. I'm thinking finger paints and a smock or a book. Maybe a puzzle. I'm not sure yet, but nothing too crazy. 
  • We'll probably do something small. I saw a cute veggie tales valentine DVD I might pick up. Last year she got a sophie giraffe. I can't imagine spending over $15 or so.

  • I wasn't going to, until I saw the Little People Garage on clearance.  Also, C flipped his shiz when he saw it in the store.  So, in order to rationalize yet another toy, I'm saving it for Valentines Day.

  • I'm probably going to make A some cookies. I'm making pink heart rice krispie treats for MH.  Our valentines day traditions usually consist of me making some sweet treat that we don't usually have and a fun dinner.

    I feel the same way about the purpose of Valentine's Day.  It's about love of all kinds, and a great chance to show everyone in your life how important they are to you.

    And I like the idea of a book.  My mom did stuffed animals for each of us (including my dad) for years.  None of us liked stuffed animals except her.  It was such a waste.
