Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Boys
Handheld Video Games: Handheld video games are fun for kids who like something they can carry to their friends’ houses and play on-the-go. The PS Vita is the latest handheld gaming device, and there are lots of games for it that are rated “E” for everyone. LEGO brand games and Angry Bird games are especially popular with little boys.
Sweets: Any boy would appreciate a delicious snack for Valentine’s Day. Chocolates and treats are not going to result in any complaints. Consider getting him a giant candy bar or a gum ball machine of his own. Get a decorative cookie jar and fill it with mixed candies, snacks, or baked goods. If you will be sending your valentine gifts long distance, choose a gift basket filled with candy that a kid would like.
Movie Collections:Get a large popcorn tub and fill it with fun items for a movie night. Add a DVD or two of his favorite children’s movies. Put in some microwave popcorn packages and candy. Add a small toy that relates to the movies you’ve chosen. Wrap it in plain red cellophane and tie a ribbon around it.
Cool Accessories: If you’re looking for something that will be treasured, a simple silver chain or a boy’s watch can make a great gift, especially for teenagers. You can also give more functional accessories, too. Beanies, scarves, and gloves are good gifts if it’s cold in February where you live. If he’s into sports, give him accessories he can use for that, like snowboarding goggles, skateboarding pads, or a bicycle helmet.
Treasure Box: Get a cardboard box shaped like a treasure box and fill it with fun games and treats to create a unique valentine gift. Like a gift basket, you can fill these boxes with whatever you think would be fun and appreciated. You might go with a theme, such as sports gear or art supplies. Alternately, you can simply fill it with a mixture of toys, such as action figures, small games, building toys, puzzle books, and comic books.
Bedroom Decor:His bedroom is his space to express himself. Look for children’s artwork to help him personalize his bedroom. He’ll love a bold art print that shows off his interests. New bedding can update his room, too; look for a set of printed sheets or a throw pillow with a fun character on it.
Fun Fragrances: Fragrances are popular Valentine’s Day gifts for adults, but did you know they make great gifts for kids as well? An eau de toilette is a lighter fragrance, and there are many EDTs that feature cartoon and video game characters. Include one of these kids’ fragrances in a treasure box, or spoil a style-savvy teenage boy with his first men’s cologne.
