Since having kids I am definitely more tempted to make every day a celebration. I tend to want to do something special for the major holidays throughout the year to teach them about these special days, even if they are still a little young to “get it.” I try not to do too much, something simple, to mark the occasion. Most of what we do is talk about what makes each holiday special and do activities to point to a major concept for each special day.
But on Valentine’s Day we do like to get our sweet ones something special for the day. A simple little basket with a few special things is perfect for letting them know this is a fun day! I have been on the hunt for cute things for our kids’ Valentine’s baskets and I came up with some ideas for Baby’s First Valentine.
These are sweet things for your sweet little one on their first Valentine’s Day:

This BumKins bib has very wide sides that can catch most of the mess our little ones can make! And the cute hearts nod to Valentine’s but can be used throughout the year.
A heart-shaped food cutter is perfect for beginning self-feeders. Cut fruits into hearts to show her how much you love her while teaching her early shape concepts.
This super sweet heart-shaped teether is always a welcome gift for baby. It seems like babies are always drooling and teething at some point, so why not give them a little love to soothe those sore gums.
We have a little ones obsessed with yogurt melts! I have to keep my bigger kids away from them to save them for baby! They are a perfect snack for on the go. I think these strawberry and mixed berry puffs are just right to melt your little one’s heart for Valentine’s day! (Sorry, I had to – I couldn’t resist!)
This book, The Day It Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond, is ADORABLE! We love books around here and are still trying to teach our youngest to sit still and “read” with us. This is so cute, I think she will enjoy looking at it, even if she isn’t interested in what it says!

I hope you and your little one have a wonderful and FUN Valentine’s Day!
