Whether you're a mom extraordinaire, favorite auntie, awesome sis, or (fairy?) godmother, you strive to get your munchkins the best gifts possible. There's no better feeling than seeing kids smile, but since you went all out for the holiday season, try one of these more budget-friendly gifts for the kiddos in your life this Valentine's Day!
1 - Marshmallow Shooter ($15) Though we're a non-violent bunch here at Outblush, we think this shooter is an exception to the rule. Kids plus marshmallows plus automatic rapid fire setting equals one heck of a fun afternoon!
2 - Personalized Frog with Heart Cookies ($27 for 3) Keep the box of chocolates all to yourself and hand out these cutesy personalized froggie cookies to the kids. They'll get a kick out of munching but won't be too overloaded on sugar.
3 - Sweetheart Sunnies ($12) Umm, can't you just see your favorite toddler looking ahhh-dorable in these? Just make sure the camera is glued to your hand when you hand over the glasses. The photo ops will be endless.
4 - Trend Lab Dr Seuss Velour Cat In The Hat Chair and Ottoman ($128) Encourage quiet time and reading with this comfy chair and ottoman set. The bookshelf is already full of Dr. Seuss books, it's time to curl up and enjoy them.
5 - Kirby's Epic Yarn Wii Game ($40) Coveted by game-playing kids everywhere, Kirby's Epic Yarn is hours of fun. It has a storybook format and creates a great dreamworld-like adventure for your favorite gaming kiddo!
6 - Make Your Own Kaleidoscope Set ($34) Get creative with your kids by helping them put together their own kaleidoscope. This kit comes with everything you need--from glitter to glue!
7 - Converse All Star Hi-Top Shoes ($30) A pair of Converse will make any kid instantly awesome. They're durable, retro, and come in so many fun kid-friendly colors (though we just looove the classic red!).
