Looking for non-candy Valentine’s Day gifts for kids? Then check out these 15 awesome Dollar Tree Valentines gifts for kids that are easy and cheap.

Dollar stores have such a big selection of items and are a great place to stretch your family budget, especially for extras like little Valentine’s presents.

We try to be judicious with candy for our kids (otherwise the 2-year-old literally yells “candy!!” when we try to serve meals….). I’m also a frugal person so finding Valentine’s day gifts at the Dollar Tree is a perfect solution for us to make Valentine’s Day fun on a budget.

Shopping at the Dollar Tree is one of our family’s budget strategies, and I love the selection of non-clutter consumables like bath finger paints and crayons that are perfect for kids’ gifts.

Below you’ll find a list of easy kids’ Dollar Tree Valentines gifts to save you money. With each gift, you’ll also find cute examples of Valentine’s cards to use with them, to make Valentine’s gifting even easier.

Let’s make some Valentine’s!
