9 Clever Non-Candy Valentine's Day Ideas

You're my main squeeze. 

Tie this free printable from Funky Polka Dot Giraffe around your kid's favorite kind of squeeze pouch.


You are the apple of my eye. 

Pair this printable from Craftaholics Anonymous with a whole apple, an Apple Pie LARA bar, or a snack bag of dried apple rings.


You are awesome sauce.

In case you didn't have enough apple-related options already, Craftaholics Anonymous offers another adorable saying to stick onto a cup of apple (or other flavored!) sauce?!


Orange you glad we are friends?

As part of Eat Healthy Designs Valentine's Bundle printable pack, choose any number of tags to put with cute, non-candy ideas. I love the idea of adding this one with an easy-to-peel clementine or two.


I think you're a-doh-able.

Put mini Play-doh containers (in the Valentine's sections at Target or any main grocery store) through this printable by Grace and Good Eats for a kid-friendly option that appeals to many ages!


You blow me away.

Pair this printable from The Girl Creative with a little container of bubbles. Almost everywhere around seems to have inexpensive options with heart-shaped wands (I have seen them at Hobby Lobby, Target, the Dollar Store, and Party City to name a few).

You color my world.

How fun to put this printable from Crazy Little Projects with a box of crayons/markers/colored pencils. Toss in a Valentine's themed coloring book for any extra-special friends.

Monster Valentines.

This would be such a hit with young girls, tweens, and fellow mom friends alike! Print these printables from The Idea Room with an EOS lip balm. You can buy a big pack at Costco to cover all the special ladies in your kids life!

I love you a latte.

For all those who love yon our littles (think teachers, bus drivers, Childrens ministry staff, etc.), give this free printable from Simply Noted with a gift card to Starbucks or your favorite local coffee shop. For the extra crafty type, this DIY cozy tutorial (also from Simply Notable) is a super cute added touch!.


Here's to helping all little ones go home with a bag of Valentine's Day loot that both parents and kids can love. Please share in the comments below any other non-candy Valentine's Day ideas you and your kid have or plan to hand out this holiday.
