Valentine’s Day Gifts

Valentine’s Day is next week! So today I’m sharing my go-to Valentine gifts for teachers, classmates and the men in your life if you need some ideas!


Last year Caroline gave her classmates mini boxes of raisins as Valentine gifts. This was so easy and fun that I’m recycling this idea again this year for both kidddos.

When the kids were in the infant class I gave their teachers cute socks. The infant class is a “shoe-less” room so they liked this gift.


Another teacher gift idea I recently through together — a jar of hugs!

Printable created in word (not saved, sorry!)

And another candy idea — except this gift comes with the possibility to win some moneyyyyy!

Last year for both kids’ teachers we did bags of Boom Chicka Pop and it was a huge hit. The teachers loved this little treat because who doesn’t love this delicious popcorn?! You could also add a redbox code to your card if you wanted to add a little more to the gift.

On to the much harder gift — the dudes…

First, I can’t thank everyone enough for their gift suggestions on this post. I decided to scrap the MyPillow idea after reading all of your reviews! Instead I picked up this (which is kind of joint gift for at home date-nights) and a pair of these (currently on sale) for Matt. I can’t say much more because he reads here but I just have to give a fair warning that the reviews on the second gift are absolutely hilarious and sold me immediately.

Also had to share this Moscow Mule gift basket I did one year for Valentine’s Day. I think this has been one of Matt’s favorite gifts! This kit is really so easy to put together too. In a basket I threw in some Tito’s vodka, a ginger beer, a lime and a copper mug!

Lastly, since Valentine’s Day is all about LOVE I have to share my most favorite gift — The Meaning of Marriage! Matt and I love this book and it was such a good read for us!

PS – I haven’t even though about gifts for the kids. Think they’ll notice if we skip this year? Ha!

    I love the comment on the reviews for the 2nd gift item. My husband and I always throw a few pairs of these type of things into our stockings for Christmas, and I can't tell you how many reviews I read this past year. >Insert crying emoji face<

      Yes! I was laughing so hard in bed trying to order these. Matt kept asking me what was so funny and I couldn't tell him. The Amazon reviews in particular were my favorite.

    If you have train lovers in your house you're going to LOVE "Ticket to Ride!" We don't have the board game, but we play it for free on Amazon Fire TV. If you have Amazon Prime and the Fire TV/Fire Stick you can play the U.S.A. version completely free and the best part, no board game pieces to pick up afterward! My husband, son, and I play the computer "guy" and see who can beat him by a higher score. You can also play 'local' and if you have other smart devices you can all play together. We play on an iPad, Kindle, and the Fire TV. We've played the board game too-friend's house-and it's just as much fun! Great pick!

    We love that game! We have couples over for dinner and play that game. It is so funny to see people get so competitive over it. Enjoy!

    Thank you for the board game idea for a Valentine's gift! My boyfriend is the hardest person to buy gifts for, but loves his board games, so I'm hoping it will be a hit!

    As my fiancee says 'Saxx changed my life'. Randomly got him a pair about a year ago & he is hooked – like full on addicted. I've found some at TJX / Marshall's as well as sales all over Amazon. They are well worth the retail, but my best find were $8 clearance at TJX.

    I've been a long time reader, but I've never commented before. Well, I just had to comment when I saw that you bought Ticket to Ride. It's so addicting! It's our favorite game. Plus, there are plenty of expansion packs — so you have automatic stocking stuffers for next year!
