What’s a Love Basket?
The idea behind this little gift is to start the holiday fun and build excitement for Love Month with a basket full of seasonal goodies that my kids will be able to use and enjoy leading up to Valentine’s Day!
This is actually the first time I’ve made a Love Basket (or 3)! After seeing the tradition spread among some of my creative Instagram friends for different holidays over the years, I loved the idea of giving these seasonal finds to my kids ahead of the holiday!
For each of my children, I chose a pair of heart covered pajamas, a festive outfit or two, a new book, arts & crafts, and a few other little seasonal finds. In my case these are things that I usually get each holiday, but this time collected in a cute and curated crate ready to give to my big, middle, and little littles on February 1!
Here are all of the cute things I found to add to my kids’ Love Baskets! Some of the specific things I added may be sold out, but you can check out this entire Valentine’s Day Shopping Guide for more options!
Valentine’s Gift for Girls
My biggest girl, Harper, is 7 years old and her Love Basket is full of heart covered loungewear, nightgown, a sweet water bottle, a book from her favorite series, and some arts & crafts.
Valentine’s Gift for Boys
My middle, Ethan, is a 5 year old boy. He has a little bit of a truck theme going on with some sweet construction pajamas, wooden truck sign to paint, and Little Blue Truck’s Valentine. I also added in a love themed tshirt and the absolute cuuuuuuutest tiger wearing sunnies sweatshirt.
Valentine’s Gift for Toddlers
My little Josie-girl is 1 and I filled her love basket with jammies, romper, cozy socks, heart crayons, sunglasses and a cute book that we’ll be able to keep out year round!
Be sure to grab a cute bin or basket to put it all in, scroll through some of my favorite choices (I love using something that is reusable like these acrylic boxes I used this year)
What do you think? Will you be creating your own Love Basket tradition?
