Valentine’s Day is all about love — the perfect occasion to shower little lovebugs with pink and red cheer. But Feb. 14 doesn’t have to be all about chocolate and heart-shaped candies.

There is an abundance of adorableness to be found in apparel and gifts for children, from the newest babes to the big kids, too.
