At this time of year, our high streets are lined with red love hearts, cupid decorations and heart-shaped boxes of chocolates in celebration of Saint Valentine’s Day. Said to be the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day provides us with the perfect excuse to show how much we love someone and it seems that we are not just talking about our partners.
After reading several surveys about Valentine’s Day, I was surprised to learn that the majority of gifts purchased for Valentine’s Day are for teachers, our pets and our children, so if you would rather treat the kids than anyone else this year, then it seems you are in good company!
So what is a suitable Valentine’s gift for children? Well, with the half term holidays, birthdays, and Easter just around the corner, I think something small and meaningful such as one of our Moomin Mugs would make a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift for any child. The aptly named ‘Love Mug’ from the Arabia Finland collection features two of our favourite Moomin Characters, Snork Maiden and Moomin himself, and is just perfect for that cup of hot chocolate before bedtime.
If your little one has only just arrived in the world, how about a great new all-in-one sleep suit such as those in our Bob & Blossom collection. Cute, colourful and extremely comfortable it would make a wonderful Valentine’s gift for any newborn.
Finally, if in doubt go for a super soft toy such as our gorgeous bears by Australian brand FLATOUT. Adorable cuddly creatures that every child will love to own, they would make a wonderful Valentine’s gift for your much-loved children.
So if your kids have been on their best behaviour why not treat them to their first ever Valentine’s gift – the look on their faces will be worth every penny!
