Valentine’s Day gifts for kids don’t have to revolve solely around candy and chocolate. Instead, consider getting your little love bug an inedible present. It will last longer than the sweet stuff and won’t wreak as much havoc on the teeth. Maybe even consider giving your tyke a NJ-inspired present to show off state pride or purchase something from a state-based shop.
Here are twelve fun and creative ideas to help create a heartwarming holiday.
