How to decide what to get kids for Valentine’s Day

Kids can be tricky to buy for, but when it comes to Valentine's Day, all you really need is to make them feel special. Whether it's through a pack of lollies or their favourite toy, it's not hard to find something that will bring a smile to their faces.

Bonus points if you get something love-themed or red, but if you're struggling then there are three key points that you need to consider when planning which gifts to buy for Valentine’s Day.

1. Budget

This is a huge factor when choosing the gifts your kids will love. We all want to give our kids the world, but let's be honest for a second: the world can be a pretty expensive place.

Determine your budget for each gift so that you have a guide on which item to buy without draining your pocket, and if in doubt, make a list of the available alternative gift options if your desired gift is out of stock.

Remember, making impulsive selections is due to a lack of ideas or inability to compromise within your allocated budget.

2. Personality

Just because your child is a boy doesn't necessarily mean he's keen on trucks and sports, and not all girls are interested in dolls. You know your child better than anyone, so incorporate their personality into the mix when it comes to choosing their present.

If your child is shy, perhaps they may enjoy a book or something to do while solo. But if they've got a rip-roaring, larger than life personality... Well, they may not be so keen on the idea of quiet time.

Make a judgement call based on what you know your child enjoys.

3. Age

As kids get older, their preferences change faster than you'd expect. One day they're obsessed with building blocks, while the next you couldn't pay them to play with them. Keep an eye out for what has been catching their attention and try to think ahead.

It's also important to consider age when it comes to safety and appropriateness. If you have a young child, you won't want to gift them a present that has smaller pieces that they could choke on.

Remember to use the recommended ages on all toys, and you should be in the clear.
