No gifts. No way.
Cards for his classmates: all of his classmates.
Maybe some really strong/spicy heart candies.
I cant remember if I gave a gift last year. If I did it was probably a book.
I will do the same I guess this year. A new book will be exciting to DS. We have made a few Valentine's Day crafts and talked about how it's a day to tell people how much you love them.
I will probably also try and be super crafty that day with his snacks and lunch b/c he loves that.
DD -- 5YO
DS -- 3YO
My mom always got us a little something (and still does) so I do the same and will continue to indefinitely. It's usually under $10. This year DS2 is getting a book and DS1 is getting a Dinosaur DVD that he's been asking for. I also got them both a package of I U Peeps.
I'll also probably do some special heart shaped food.
My twins are 5! My baby is 3!
DS#2 - Allergic to Cashew, Pistachio, Kiwi
DS#3 - Allergic to Milk, Egg, Peanut, Tree Nuts and Sesame
This was the only occasion my Dad ever got in on. I always got a small box of chocolates every year.
I don't know if I will get DS#1 a box of chocolates, but he will get a candy of some sort. The baby, I am not sure. In general, I plan to give them a small candy each year.
It's just a special treat, not an over-done present - so I don't see the big deal at all.
we don't give gifts - maybe a card, or a cookie... no presents. don't want my kinds thinking that every holiday is all about presents.
We give books on Valentine's Day, and starting this year we'll also give DD1 some candy (which she'll most likely forget about by the next day, just like her Halloween candy). DH gives DD1 a single rose and will do the same for DD2 now. DD1 and I will make Valentines for DH and the grandparents, and we'll make heart-shaped cookies and pink pancakes and all that jazz.
Growing up, my parents always gave us cards and candy. I like the tradition!
We give DD a card (usually one with sound because she loves those) and we make cookies....I don't think she needs more "stuff" and I don't want her to expect presents for everything. I would rather she understand that some days are special just because and not because you get presents.
