Valentine Gift for Daughters

I was just trying to think of a good gift for my husband and I to give our daughters for Valentine's. One is 15 and the other is 6. Thanks for the ideas!

What can I do next?

So What Happened?™

Thank you all for the wonderful ideas! We decided to do a special family dinner with our favorite dishes. We gave gifts from your suggestions, and still have great ideas for the next few years. We loved the special ideas for fathers! Happy Valentine's Day to you all.

What about a mani/pedicure combo gift certificate? My daughters love when I take them to the nail salon after school sometimes!

Every year, my husband gets our daughters a small box of candy, a single rose, a cute teddy bear for the lil ones, & jewelry for the older ones. They look forward to getting their gifts from daddy & love it! Then, we all get dressed up & daddy takes his girls out to eat.

We gave our 4 & 6 yr old girls Hannah Montanna perfume and some jewelry from Libby Lu. They thought it was pretty cool.

I would get the 16 a spa say at Seventeen Spa and Salon. I'm not sure what your 6 year old enjoys. We got our 10 year old Webkinz.

We gave our 17 yr. old daughter a box of candy (I know, original) and our 6 yr. old daughter a small box of candy and a couple of books.

You could always do a gift card for your oldest from one of her fav. stores, and maybe a kid's purse or stuffed animal for your little one.

Growing up, my mom always got me pajamas for holidays like Valentine's or Easter. One time when I was in junior high, my godfather sent me flowers to school and I thought it was the best thing ever. The 15 year old might enjoy getting flowers, but I don't know the rules these days on deliveries to school.

Do they like going to see movies? Movie tickets might be fun!

Not sure what you want to spend, but here's what I did-- I have two girls, 13 and 9: My 13- year old likes the "Pink" line of sweatsuits and underwear targeted to teens at Victoria's Secret. Underpants are 5 for $25 right now, and several kinds (not racy) are only $1.99. Their giant "PINK" plastic water bottles are on special for $5 as well. So I got her a bunch of panties and a water bottle, and the store put it in one of their pink shopping bags with tissue paper. She loved it. The 9-year-old got mock Crocs (pink swirl, $8) from the Target shoe department, pink bubble gum lip balm from the Target dollar spot, and Hello Kitty underwear. I also bought them heart-shaped pink frosted donuts from Kristy Kreme-- the store will have them all day today.

Something we do with our son is "The 7 days of Valentines". Not as popular or well known as the "12 days of Christmas", but fun. We do it with clues and special little trinkets, treats etc each day. Doesn't have to be expensive, but fun little creative things - builds up to one nice valentines present. This year it started with a little valentines card setting the stage for 7 days of fun and mystery and it just had a small package of sweet tarts in it. A couple other days are skittles and other little candy treats along with coupon for a couple fun things as a family, a bike ride with Mom and one for a driving range day with Dad. Then a package of Webkins trading cards the next day with clue card in the morning ($2.95 for the cards I think), an I-Tunes music card for his I-POD ($15) and we are ending on valentines with a Webkin stuffed animal.

At the age of 15, if your daughter doesn't have a special ring from you - a nice one from Mom & Dad to remind them the love that is always there and never ending. (hard because the 6 year old may feel left out, but it means different going to a 6 year old than a 15 y/o typically)

Also, from growing up one of the best memories I have is that my father always brought my Mom, my sister and I boxed chocolates and flowers (for "his girls") Remember the laced trimmed boxes of brachs chocolate? now my palet for Chocolate has matured but at that age - it was such a special treat. (I think it also set the tone for the way I felt I wanted my boyfriends and later my husband to treat me - special)

I have an 8 year old and a 5 year old. They are really into Webkins. There is a Love Frog Webkin at any Hallmark. That is what we got for both of them and they love the. Only about $15. I am sure your 6 year old would love it... espcially if she has computer access to register it afterwards.
As for the 15 year old... I would get her a choker necklace that fits her style. They are very popular right now, and it is something special she can wear from y'all. This is one holiday that I would refrain from buying clothes... it just isn't personal.

My husband always bought my daughter a piece of clothing (usually a top) with pink somewhere in it. It was a practical item and yet "Valentiney". It was something she could wear the year round. And it was always from HIM, not me.

He passed away almost 5 years ago. She is 18 now and I carry on her daddy's tradition. She knows it was HIS tradition, but always looks forward to her "pink" item. She loves them all, but especially values the ones he bought her.

I got my six year old a t-shirt to wear to school tomorrow, a balloon, and a small box of chocolates. I got the balloon from dollar tree for just a buck. I got my 10 year old a Jordan hat he has been wanting and a balloon as well. I will put it on the table in the morning when they are eating breakfast. If I had a teenager maybe a gift card to Best Buy.. they are always buying CD's or a I-tuness gift card!

For the 6 year old, maybe some of the personalized M&M candies in her favorite color--you can order online at mms.com (I think that's the right website anyway).

R.:

One of the things my dad did with my sister and I is ask us for a date. Just him and I. He made a formal invitation card and gave it to us on Valentine's Day. We each had our own separate dates to be with Dad on our own. Dinner was our choice (which means your husband may have to endure a round of Chuck E. Cheese or McDonald's with your youngest). We would get all dressed up for the date (when we were younger it included a splash of Mom's perfume) and Dad would ring the doorbell and have a single flower for me and a small box of candy. Then off to dinner we'd go. The whole evening he was the ultimate gentleman which taught me how a man should treat a woman. It was a wonderful time with just me and my Daddy. I truly believe that girls having a good relationship with their Dad's is crucial in their future choice of a boyfriend and spouse. Dad taking the time to do that taught me what it was like to be cherished by a man.

My husband always takes both of us to dinner.

For my daughter, when she was younger, he gave her a box of candy. When she turned 11 he gave her a very pretty ring with a pink stone and small diamond. At 12 he gave her a special locket with a small diamond on it.

My daughter's school sold carnations for the students to give to each other and for parents to "secretly" order for students. Our daughter will get a bouquet of carnations. She is not getting jewelry this year because she is doing very well in the orchestra program and we just bought her a new very expensive violin last week. She was thrilled with the violin.

When she gets older, he will give her some diamond earring studs that I wore as my first pair of diamond studs from him. Later on, we have a diamond ring for her that I got from my dad when I was 16.

I bet you've already come up with something, but for future use, I would try something personalized/monogrammed. Maybe a bag with her name on it. I have some neat things for my children that are monogrammed. We have a lady who has a business and does that, we'd be glad to give her name if you are interested.

We have a craft book that shows a really neat frame with hearts on it that you make with a darning needle/paper-card stock and you make the hearts with the darning needle. It is beautiful, maybe something hand made would be neat. I'm sure a craft store like a Hobby Lobby, Mardel's or Michaels would have books or craft items that you could paint or make yourself ahead of time. My Mom made several things handmade (she's very talented and loves needlework/needlepoint/crewel), so I really treasure the gifts she has given me that have been hand made. I know not everybody can do needlework, however there is a lot of easy crafts that you can make at home too.

One time I got a small heart shaped cake for my husband. You could do something like that or get a kit to make heart shaped cookies,etc... Just a few ideas.... Hope this helps, C.

Since I was around 6, my daddy always gave me a single rose with a nice card. I still cry why he sends me the card (now that I am 35… he doesn’t include the rose). It was always so touching to know he cared and could show a sensitive side :-)

Happy Valentines Day!
