Valentine’s Day Gifts For The Whole Family That Aren’t Candy


VDay Gifts 2018

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and so it is time to start brain storming about gifts. Candy and flowers seem to be the go-to for just about anyone, but does everyone really like that? For me personally, I am on a diet so candy is a no go, and flowers die too quickly in my mind. I put together some items that would make great gifts for the whole family. Each item on this guide was personally tested and/or approved by Mama’s Geeky or her family. This guide may contain affiliate links.

    I love to give my hubby movie tickets or a gift card to go out to eat on Valentine’s Day. My kids are allergic to peanuts, so we mainly steer clear of candy for Valentine’s Day for them…. I like to surprise them with a new movie, balloons, or something like a small Lego set. They love it!
