These Lego DIY frames are a hot item right now. They're already sold out at a number of top retailers, so you'll want to grab them before they're gone. Your littlest valentine will have a blast putting together their own frames and then displaying their creation and adding a special photo with friends or family. The set comes with three frames that can be connected or used individually.
Matching family PJs were a popular purchase in 2020, but the comfy trend doesn't show any signs of slowing down. If you're planning on spending Valentine's Day cozied up on the couch, you'll want to get a pair of these Old Navy pajamas for everyone in the house. They have a bunch of festive prints and colors for dads, moms and little ones — and they start at just $10 for the kids.
Instead of a bouquet that will wilt in a few days, gift your loved one a plant that will brighten their home. The Sill will deliver gorgeous, low-maintenance plants straight to their doorstep, and they have plenty of beautiful options for Valentine's Day. Depending on the pot and plant, they range from $20 to $98. The Hoya Heart plant is great for those who are still developing their green thumb (it only has to be watered every two to three weeks!), while the Knock Out Rose is perfect for your seasoned plant parent friends.
If you're skipping your usual restaurant reservations, treating your significant other to breakfast in bed will make your at-home celebration feel extra special. Harry & David will send you a complete spread, with pancake and scone mixes, so you can whip up a delicious spread for your loved one. We also love this option from Wolferman's Bakery, which includes pre-made loaf cakes, English muffins and more and comes in a stylish tray that you can keep and use for future breakfast spreads.
