Just because they can’t have a box of chocolates doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate your baby’s first Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Day is usually focused on romance, and that’s great. We’re all for romance and reconnecting with your partner. In fact we encourage it (just check out those romantic Airbnbs!). Of course, that doesn’t mean we’re skipping our baby’s first Valentine’s Day! It’s still a milestone and there’s nothing we as parents love more than celebrating our little one’s firsts. Even though they won’t remember their first Day of Love, we can’t resist these adorable baby V-Day goodies!
We’ve put together the perfect list of baby-ready gifts for February 14th. Things to build, friends to snuggle, and adorable little love-themed outfits to wear in pics (that you’ll be sharing to your Tinybeans album, of course!). No matter how little (or big, actually), our babes have the biggest pieces of our hearts, so we’re making sure they know it. Baby’s first Valentine’s Day gifts are right here!
Wooden Heart Blocks
This is even better than a box of chocolates (for babies, anyway). Each sweet block has been stained with water-based, non-toxic dyes, and sanded down to smooth rounded corners, so they're even safe enough for them to teeth on! They'll be able to play with this adorable puzzle for years.
Valentine Koala by Melange Collection
What's better than this cute koala to celebrate your little one's first Valentine's Day? Knowing that he's handmade by knitting artisans in Lima and in remote rural villages in Peru. They work closely with organizations dedicated to empowering women through income-generating projects. Artisans enjoy a safe work environment and earn a living wage with respect for their cultural traditions. That's one special koala!
