We love making the holidays fun and festive around here, and we always pick up a few little gifts for our five kids for Valentine’s Day. Even though the kids range from ages 4-14, we try to keep the budget the same for all five of them, and we keep it around a $20 limit for each kiddo for Valentine’s Day gifts. Enjoy! ?Thanks for watching!?
