Valentine's Day is all about celebrating the people you love the most. And since your kids are probably pretty high up on that list, it's impossible to celebrate the holiday without buying them things to prove your love. Just kidding. Sort of.
But seriously, if you're planning on buying your kids gifts for Valentine's Day (because Christmas and Hanukkah just weren't enough), make it count with something they'll use and will probably ask for eventually anyway (aka anything tech-related).
Here are some ideas for kids of all ages:
The cuddly, talking bear from your childhood is back and better than ever. At first glance, he looks just like the Teddy Ruxpin you knew and loved (or were possibly afraid of?), but now he's tech savvy. And since kids basically come out of the womb knowing how to swipe an iPad, they'll totally be able to figure out his cool features, which include telling stories, singing songs, and expressing emotions. Of course, he connects to an app to enhance the experience even more.
Purchase from Amazon for $58 (the best deal we've found).
Video of the Day
Fujifilm Instax Mini 9
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 is perfect for kids who love photography. Specifically, instant photography.
Amazon's Echo Dot
Kids ask a lot of questions—probably plenty you don't know the answers to. So, why not get them their very own Echo Dot so Alexa can answer them accurately? You know, without all the guessing.
Buy it on Amazon for $50.
Emoji Gumball Machine
OK, technically, this one is tech-adjacent. But kids love emoji almost as much as they love gum. And no kid has ever been mad about a personal gumball machine.
Buy it on Amazon for $12.
LuvaBella Baby Doll
LuvaBella is a robot doll that your kids will love taking care of (and it's crazy popular right now). The more your child plays with her and takes care of her, the more she learns. Her movements are pretty realistic (albeit, mildly creepy), so it's just like having another baby around the house. (One you don't have to feed and send to college.)
Available on Amazon for $78.
iPhone Charger Sticker Face Set
There's nothing older kids love more than charging their phones—aside from actually using their phones. Help them spice up their chargers with this cool iPhone charger sticker face set.
