It’s baby’s first Valentine’s Day, and maybe you want to make it special, despite the fact that they won’t remember it at all. February 14 is not just about romance; it’s about love, and it includes your least love. But what do you give your main mini-squeeze when it’s too young to enjoy (or chew on) fine chocolates? And when reservations at a good restaurant (not that you can make it now anyway) are impractical / your dear baby would probably cry over dinner?
Do not worry. There are still many gift options for a baby on their first Valentine’s Day. Just because your little Cupid can’t hold a rose without trying to eat it doesn’t mean he should be missing out on all the fun. Whether it’s falling completely into heart shaped toys or just simply loving the color red, these gifts are totally perfect to make your baby your Valentine’s Day. And more importantly, many of these gifts can be used at any time of the year so they don’t go to waste.
Coming up, we’ve rounded up some great gift ideas to help you celebrate baby’s first Valentine’s Day, from faint-worthy outfits to useful baby outfits you both will love. And if you’ve got older kids, be sure to check out these Valentine’s Day gifts for kids at Target and Walmart.
