Let me preface this little gift guide with this disclaimer. At the heart of your family's celebration of this holiday of St. Valentine which is brimming with bright red hearts and so much sweetness, should of course be love– your love for one another, your love for others and the sense that the most important accomplishment your kids can achieve as a person living on this planet will be their ability to secure and maintain loving relationships and friendships.
Of course, once you've established that fact, a few goodies, to sweeten the deal and reiterate this celebration of love– can never be a bad thing– and here are a few of our favorites!
