20 Baby Valentines Gifts
Valentine’s and Love Themed Books
I always like to gift at least one book on Valentine’s day. There are so many cute Valentine’s versions of some of our favorite stories.
A board book is perfect for both a baby girl or baby boys. We celebrate with these board books every year as I swap them out in a book basket for them to peruse. They’re all great options!
- Babies Love Valentines: A Lift-a-Flap Board Book for Babies and Toddlers
- Love from The Very Hungry Caterpillar (The World of Eric Carle)
- I Spy With My Little Eye Valentine's Day: A Fun Valentines day books for kids, Toddlers and Preschoolers
My kids love books and typically because I use these year to year, I can reuse the same books from last year in this years basket, maybe just adding one new one for novelty’s sake.
Pajamas are one of my favorite things to buy for my boys. I am obsessed with cute seasonal prints.
I love Burt’s Bees for baby pajamas because they are organic cotton!
Heart-Shaped Baby Sunglasses
Babies in sunglasses has to be one of the cutest things ever. Heart-shaped sunnies are a fun way they can wear the mood!
Heart Shaped Plate and Utensils
Okay, I am immediately obsessed with these dishes for little ones! They are made of food-grade silicone for safe eating. I love this for baby’s first valentine – you can bring it out every year!
These stacking rings come in the perfect Valentine’s day colors but are perfect for all year long.
A Cute Valentine’s Outfit
I love a cute Valentine’s day outfit. These picks are adorable!
Slumberkins are stuffed animals along with a book that were created by a therapist and educator to help kids learn social emotional skills.
Each focuses on a different animal and story that teaches kids positive affirmations and emotional regulation. This is such a sweet gift and they are also machine washable!
Yum Earth Lollipops
I am all about candy that does not use artificial dyes and limits sugar. One of my favorite brands is Yum Earth. My kids are OBSESSED with their lollipops.
A Sweatshirt For Spring
As we approach the transition to spring, get them a cute new sweatshirt that matches the season.
New Rain Boots

A Customized Name Blanket
This quilt is heirloom quality. It will look perfect in your little one’s nursery and bedroom over the years.

Instead of going personalized, pick something specifically Valentine’s themed to brighten up these dreary months!

What To Keep In Mind For Valentine’s Day Gifts For Babies
As much as I love Valentine’s day… we do have to keep in mind that it is just one day per year. Realistically we can stretch out the celebration for 2-3 weeks until it’s time to move onto the next holiday.
Think of how long you can use the items for. If you’re buying books, consider that you can use them for multiple years.
If you’re buying pajamas, remember that they can wear them for months or even up to a year if you buy stretchy bamboo.
Even if toys and items are cute, it’s nice to keep in mind that you can gift them things that aren’t specifically Valentine’s themed that they’ll still love.
For example, my oldest is obsessed with Paw Patrol, so I’m going to find him a small Paw Patrol toy to include in his basket!
Gift Art Supplies
The gift that keeps on giving – art supplies are fun for most kids and you can give them a Valentine’s themed craft that you can all do together.
This is perfect for significant others and kids of all ages too! It’s an easy way to bring the family together.
You can also take this time to gift something that has sentimental value. Maybe a special stuffed animal or blanket that they can use for the next few years but also keep as a special gift forever.
You can also find personalized gifts like picture frames, diaper bags, or a baby blanket from etsy sellers but you’ll need to order advance to make sure you get them on time.
Final Thoughts: Baby Valentine’s Gifts
Baby gifts are a great idea this time of year. You can do a lot with a valentine gift basket that can contain books, educational toys, and a few cute valentines-themed pieces they’ll love.
Don’t get overwhelmed! There are plenty of great gift ideas here for your little love and remember – you are a great parent whether you get them everything or nothing from this list. The good news is that they know you love them, and that is enough.
