1. Plants

Candy and treats are gobbled up and gone within minutes. Giving a plant to a child as a Valentine’s Day gift is a way to make the holiday last for years. Not only will a plant brighten her room with a pop of green, if you pick certain types (such as spider plants) it will help purify the air inside the room! Personalize this green gift in a terracotta pot that you or your child can decorate and add a card or label: “Thanks for helping my love grow.”

2. Bubbles

Show me a kid who doesn’t love bubbles. They’re fun and inexpensive (and can be made at home if you prefer). Add a label on top of the bottle or wrap a homemade Valentine’s Day greeting around the bottle for a personalized touch.

3. Recycled Crayons

Let a small child know that they “color your world” with these recycled crayons from Ivy Lane Designs. Or pass along this fun Valentine’s Day treat to their chums at school: give classmates a small package of crayons or purchase a bunch of recycled crayons and parcel them out on the special day. There are a variety of shapes and sizes, including, of course, hearts!

4. Books

Tiny tykes might not grasp the message of Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean they should miss out on the fun. Baby Lit’s series are cheeky, fun takes on classic love stories and offer lessons such as counting (Pride and Prejudice or Romeo and Juliet), weather (Wuthering Heights) and opposites (Sense and Sensibility). For slightly older kids, this favorite book series features a Valentine’s version.

And, unsurprisingly, we have plenty of recommendations for the whole family for books with an eco-friendly message.
