Happy Valentines Day! Low Clutter Children’s Gifts

For many people, the traditional children’s gifts or tokens at Valentine’s Day are plush toys and chocolate. This year, I was particularly challenged as my 13 year old daughter has given up chocolate for Lent. We no longer accumulate plush toys as she has purged her collection down to her few very favourites. My solution is to bake a (vanilla) cake for the family and yes, it will be pink or red(ish).

Do you have suggestions to offer the readership? What do other people use as clutter free, candy free gifts or tokens to the kids?

Add you comments below and let us know your solutions.

Hi Carolyn, If you're looking for a food-free gift for your teenage daughter, you could get her an inexpensive bottle of red nail polish or, if you're up for it, black nail polish, which is very trendy!

Anything consumable - like bubble bath for a six-year-old - is good, I say. It eventually gets used up!
