Great boy stuff for Valentine's Day? Reader Q+A
I always find so much cute stuff for girls, especially for Valentine's Day, but I don't know what to give the boys. -Shannon
As a mama of a son, I am definitely on the lookout for great boys' items for Valentine's Day. And while you had a great idea for a handmade gift in the comments of our post about handmade Valentine's crafts for girls
, you inspired me to look for even more items for the little guys in our life. Hope you find something in what I've dug up for you! -Christina
Want a project the whole class will love to make? Get them involved with these easy-but-fun Monster Cards
(also seen at top) to make for a special adult in their lives. I am certain my son would cover that dude in about 15 googly eyes.
I love these little handmade robotic treats that Shim + Sons
made together. The barcode font put on little stickers is such an awesome idea! Plus, what child doesn't want to get a little candy with their Valentine?
My kindergartner has a serious crush on all things Lego. I love this little Love You Lego set
which spells out the sweetest message. (Though it will be more fun to see what else he tries to spell.)
Looking to send a little scary note that boys would love to give or get? I like the Personalized Monster Cards
from Delightfully Noted, maybe tucked beside a sweet treat to show that these monsters really aren't bad guys.
Olligraphic's super-personalized Superhero card
(match hair color! eyes!) makes me smile with its little "This card will NOT self-destruct" message. Get the printable version and you can take care of the entire class in a few minutes. (And psst, mamas of girls, there is a version
for you too.)
"Free" and "printable-at-home" are music to my ears, which is why I'm eyeing these Rock-n-Roll Printables
from Living Locurto. I would include the sweetest photo of my son that I can find, but if I don't even have time for that much, there is a photo-free version. Love.
