Teddy Bear & Chocolates Valentine’s Day Gift Basket

Sample sent for feature


My son is 8 and loves the holidays-any holiday. He will bounce in from school with MLK facts in January and Easter projects in April. He knows Valentine’s Day is next week and he loves to hand out Valentine’s cards to his classmates. When he gets home they are all over the floor as he sorts through them. I also leave a treat on the breakfast table for him to wake up to from us. I did the same with his older brothers too.

Valentine’s Book for Kids – Groggle’s Monster Valentine

Groggle’s Monster Valentine

by: Diana Murray & Bats Langley

It is always a lot of fun finding a special gift for the kids to wake up to on Valentine’s Day. Better yet, a gift like a Valentine’s book can become a tradition to read each year. Because it is available on Amazon Prime you can have it in 2 days and ready for a special surprise on Valentine’s morning.

In Groggle’s Monster Valentine, his impulses get in the way of creating the perfect Valentine for his best monster friend, Snarlina. Like a child who can’t finish baking cookies because they devour the icing and candies before the final project is done, Groggle can’t complete his card for her because he devours it at the end. It is a fun story as your child watches Groggle make several cards. Will he finally complete one he can gift to her?

On Valentine’s Day I like to have small gifts or treats on hand for the kids. My son will wake up and love coming to the breakfast to see what is waiting for him and then will get packed a treat in his lunchbox and then we typically have a fun dessert after dinner.

My husband and I celebrate Valentine’s Day for each other but I don’t forget about the kids. They are our greatest love. The Sparkler™ LED Jump Rope with Kinetic-Powered Lights is a fun gift for the special day.

Geospace jump rope

The Sparkler™ LED Jump Rope with Kinetic-Powered Lights works without any batteries. It lights up as you jump creating energy that powers the LED lights.

The jump rope is built with a durable design. The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box besides it not being your typical jump rope was that the material is rugged and will last a long time. Geospace has a lot of fun toys that encourage active play.
