Chocolate is a Valentine’s staple, but if you want something different, this Non-Candy Valentine’s Day Gifts For Kids is filled with really great non-edible ideas.
To make sure you have the best holiday, be sure to read our other Valentine’s Day posts.
Valentine’s Day is in less than a week. Are you ready for it?
(Yeah, that Taylor Swift line was accidental. I promise. But still, are you ready for Valentine’s?)
If you still need to pick up a gift or two, don’t worry. You aren’t resorted to just buy chocolate or some other sweet treat. The kids will probably get enough of that at school anyway.
Instead, pick up something off our list of non-candy Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas.
We kept these ideas specifically for kids, and split this into two lists: one for girls and one for boys. Of course, you can shop off either list for your kids, but splitting the lists into genders worked really well for our Non-Candy Easter Basket Fillers For Kids list, so I thought it would work well here as well.
Of course, we are big fans of Valentine’s desserts too. If you want to make some, rather than buying them to give as gifts, check out our list of Easy Valentine’s Day Dessert Recipes.

Affiliate links are included in this post and Drugstore Divas may make a small commission if you use them.
We tried to keep these choices somewhat Valentine’s Day related so this didn’t just turn into just a random list of small toys you would gift for any occasion.
And, these are gifts that you would give to your kids, not as for a class Valentine’s Day party.
Valentine’s Day Ideas for Girls
LEGO came out with this very cool building set line that’s all flowers. There’s a bouquet of roses, a bouquet of wildflowers, and a few more. They’re absolutely gorgeous when they’re assembled.
So sure, you could buy your daughter flowers. That’s a great way to make her smile. Or, you can buy her these LEGO kits and spend time making them with her. That’s even better.
Pete the Cat: Valentine’s Day Is Cool Book
Pete the Cat is so popular (especially in this house, since Pete’s name is … obviously … Pete). This Pete the Cat: Valentine’s Day Is Cool Book is perfect sweet book for Valentine’s.
Pete the Cat doesn’t like Valentine’s Day, until he realizes that he has special cats in his own life (his friends and his whole family), which is maybe how your little kids are feeling this holiday.
Squishy Toys In Heart Shape Pop Bag
I love this Squishy Toys In Heart Shape Pop Bag gift idea because it’s so many things that are popular right now — squishy toys and a pop fidget. (Speaking of fidgets, check out our list of Fun Fidget Toys For Kids).
What’s great about it too is that the heart pop bag is the perfect shape for your little Valentine to carry on Valentine’s Day.
Star Wars Yoda One For Me Cute Valentine’s Graphic T-Shirt
If you watching The Mandalorian as a family, this Star Wars Yoda One For Me Cute Valentine’s Graphic T-Shirt is extra special for the little girl in your life.
It comes in five different colors (baby blue, cranberry, gray, blue, and pink) and sizes from 2T to kids large.
What little girl doesn’t want her own sunglasses? You can stop her from stealing yours by getting her a pair of her very own.
These Heart-Shaped Sunglasses are cool gift for Valentine’s Day because, well, they’re shaped as a heart. These are specifically sized for kids, making them perfect for your daughter.
Decorate-Your-Own Wooden Heart Box Craft Kit
If you want something crafty for your little girl’s Valentine’s Day gift, this Decorate-Your-Own Wooden Heart Box Craft Kit is a great idea.
It comes with everything your daughter needs to make the craft: the wooden box, glitter glue, white glue, colorful gems, four pots of paint, and a brush. And she’ll be able to keep it and think of her special Valentine’s Day gift all year long.

Design Your Own Water Bottle Kit
Decorating water bottles with stickers is such a trendy thing to do (in fact, we have a whole post about Using Stickers To Decorate Your Water Bottle).
If you don’t want kids to stick stickers all over expensive water bottles, this Design Your Own Water Bottle Kit — which comes with a kid-sized bottle and kid-friendly stickers — makes everyone happy.
If you have extra stickers, our 5 Fun Ways To Use Valentine’s Day Stickers will give you some ideas of how to use them.
Beaded Friendship Bracelets
A throwaway line in a random Taylor Swift song (that wasn’t even a single!) sparked an entire resurgence of friendship bracelets that Swifties are giving out at The Eras Tour and The Eras Tour movie.
If your daughter hasn’t gone to either (or even if she has), she’ll love this Beaded Friendship Bracelets set. It comes with seven Taylor Swift-inspired stacking bracelets, three of which say “LOVE”, “BRAVE”, and “BE YOURSELF”.
Hedgehogs Holding Heart Stuffed Animal
When I was young, I love stuffed animals so much. So my favorite gift on this list would have been this Hedgehogs Holding Heart Stuffed Animal.
This is perfect for Valentine’s Day because of the heart, and hedgehogs are so in right now. So this is a lovely gift idea.
Love Nursery Rhymes Sound Book
If you’re shopping for a very young girl, this Love Nursery Rhymes Sound Book is absolutely perfect.
It’s for young kids (the suggested age is a 1 to 4-year old). She or you can push a button to play one of six songs. That’s adorable.
For more books in this age range, we have a great list of the Best Board Books For Babies.
Disney Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck Best Friends T-Shirt
When kids are young, Valentine’s Day is about friendship, so this Disney Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck Best Friends T-Shirt is the perfect gift idea.
It comes in five colors (baby blue, silver, gray, pink, and purple) and in sizes 2T to kids large.
Valentine’s Day Ideas for Boys
V Is For Video Games Funny Valentines Day T-Shirt
If your son isn’t into Valentine’s Day, but he loves video games, this V Is For Video Games Funny Valentines Day t-shirt is the perfect gift idea.
It comes in five colors (black, two blues, and two grays) and in sizes 2T to kids large.
Soft Plush Blue Shark With “I Love You” Heart
If your boy is into Baby Shark (and really, who has escaped that Baby Shark song?), this Soft Plush Blue Shark With “I Love You” Heart is a good gift.
It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day too because of the “I Love You” heart attached to it.
Have A Smashing Valentine’s Day Graphic T-Shirt
If your son is a Marvel fan, he’ll love this Have A Smashing Valentine’s Day Graphic T-Shirt and it’s perfect for him to wear to school on Valentine’s Day.
The shirt comes in white, blue, silver, gray, or pink and in sizes 2T to kids large.
Decorate-Your-Own Wooden Car Kits Set
This Decorate-Your-Own Wooden Car Kits Set don’t have anything really to do with Valentine’s Day besides the fact that each set has red paint with it.
But these are really great sets and your little Valentine will have so much fun painting and then with the cars, so I think it’s a fun idea that makes the cut.
Scratch-Off Valentine Jokes
If your son loves telling jokes, this set of Scratch-Off Valentine Jokes is perfect. He’ll be able to read the joke and then scratch off the punch line — making himself laugh.
For some extra fun, he’ll be able to tell you the joke after.
Dinosaur “Rawr” T-Shirt
Boys love dinosaurs. And your boy will love this Dinosaur “Rawr” T-Shirt.
It comes in sizes 6 months to kids X-Large and the sleeves come in gray, red, or blue.
My First Valentine’s Day Crinkle Gift
This My First Valentine’s Day Crinkle Gift is for your littlest love because it’s for ages 3 months and older.
It comes with six Valentine’s Day themed toys, which are handcrafted with a superior quality stretch cotton that squeak, crinkle, rattle and jingle.
