Gift Guide: Valentine's Day Gifts for Kids

With Valentine's Day just right around the corner, here is my final installment of gift ideas for kids.







Old Navy - PJs - On Sale $12!













Valentine's Day Plate Sets


These plates from Pottery Barn Kids are Aaaa-dorable!!!


Pottery Barn Kids Plates - $12.50




A fun activity to do with your kids on Valentine's Day is to take a cookie cutter in the shape of a heart and make pancakes with them. I like to place the cookie cutter on my pan, pour the batter in and let the bottom set up before removing the cookie cutter. I also like to add some fresh cut strawberries in to make it a little festive. Once they are done cooking, top with some whipped cream and strawberries for something a little extra!

Product Review: Mabel's Labels - Skinny Mini Labels

As a mom to a busy toddler, I am always trying to keep track of my daughters items and failing. It's especially hard when you go on a play date and everyone has the same drink cup or snack cup it's so easy to get them mixed up. That's where Mabel's Labels Skinny Minis come in to save the day. I was thrilled to receive these. Not only are they super cute but help me keep track of my daughters items. They are great for drink cups, snack cups, crayon boxes, books, and everything else in between. They are so versatile as they are both dishwasher and microwave safe.  

I love that you can customize your Mabel Labels with bright colors and adorable icons. This is a must have product for any busy parent and child. Not only does it help you with organization but it also helps your kids stay organized and keep track of their items. My daughter turns 2 this month and she already spots her items based on her labels. She takes so much pride knowing that it's hers. It's great for the both of us!



After trying out the Skinny Minis, I know I have to order more, I'm addicted already! They literally have a label to fit your every need, from clothing labels to shoe labels (genius) to sports equipment to household labels. Mabel's Labels was started by four moms and these ladies have really thought of it all. We have a trip coming up so I'm already anticipating on using these to label G's items. I highly recommend these products the quality is like no other.

They also offer free standard shipping in the U.S. and Canada. Who can pass up free shipping?! I love free shipping!

A few years ago we joined the Dollar Shave Club. They send out new razors every month for only $6! It's such a great deal and the blades do a great job. I even use them! Any guy would love this! My husband would always buy the cheap razors at the store because he didn't like spending $20 a month on razors. This solves the issue! Gift a subscription to this and you won't be sorry!
