We've put together some of our favorite Valentine's Day gifts for kids and parents. Show your little one some love with a special lunchbox that carries love notes or help mom unwind with a set of celebration glasses from Bohemiarts.


Boy Sees Hearts by Eric Telchin

Seeing Red

On the Boy Sees Hearts website, there are various six-word interpretations of their mission: "Seeing a heart transforms your day"; and "There is magic in the mundane" are two that resonate. The story: Founder Eric Telchin saw a heart in a puddle of melted ice cream, then went searching for the shape in everyday objects - now you can purchase eye-catching artwork that inspires smiles. Fine art prints, gallery wraps, customizable greeting cards, and framed prints are available, starting at $10.50).

Love Notes

Make Valentine's Day the first of many days where you tuck tiny bits of Mommy- or Daddy-love into your kids' lunch boxes. Reminding them you care has never been easier: The Good Bites Sandwich Box ($5.99; www.mominventors.com) is BPA-free and dishwasher safe - and it has a clear pocket on top to slip in a Iron Man lunchbox; lunch tinPost-It-sized reminder.

 

 

And this lunch tin ($35.95; www.kindnotes.com) actually comes stocked with mini envelopes and "KindNotes" that you can either craft yourself or choose from an array of preprinted options ("You know what I love about you? Everything!").
