Cute-But-Easy Card (+ Non-Candy) Gift Ideas That Won’t Cost You a Fortune
If you have a preschooler and you’re in need of some fun but inexpensive Valentine’s Day gifts for their preschool classmates, you’re in luck!
I’ve scoured the Internet for some of the cutest Valentine’s Day cards and gifts that won’t cost you a fortune — and your preschooler’s classmates will absolutely love them.
The ideas I’m sharing with you are incredibly simple and, best of all, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home to buy the supplies. Simply print the cards, order the gifts for delivery, and put it all together.
Ready to learn more? Let’s begin!
Note: The first couple Valentine’s cards on this list are my own designs, and the rest belong to other Etsy shops. You can view my entire collection of printable Valentines here.
Dino Coloring Valentine
If your child loves dinosaurs and coloring, then this Valentine’s card is perfect! You can either attach a couple crayons to the back of the card with washi tape or tape the card to a small box of crayons, depending on your budget.
Purchase, download, and print the “coloring dinosaur Valentine card“.
Print as many copies as you need — there are four cards AND eight cards per 8.5″ x 11″ sheet (there are two different size options). There are eight different designs.
Cut out the cards and fill out the “to” and “from” spots, then tape the crayons to your cards.
“Color Your Heart Out” Valentine Card
This is a different spin on the crayon/coloring Valentine. You’ll want to grab some heart-shaped crayons for this one (or make your own if you’re crafty!).
Buy, download, and print the “color your heart out” Valentine, then cut out the cards.
There are four cards per 8.5″ x 11″ sheet, so you can print the number of pages you need.
Fill out the card, attach the heart crayons, and gift them to your kiddo’s classmates.
Visit HeartAndPaperPress on Etsy to see more of my own Valentine’s card designs.
“Heart Pop” Bubble Valentine
What kid doesn’t enjoy bubbles? Your child’s preschool classmates will love this one!
- “you make my heart pop” bubble Valentine
- small bubble tubes
- washi tape (optional, but adds a fun touch)
Purchase, download, and print the “you make my heart pop” bubble Valentine.
There are four cards per 8.5”x11″ sheet, so you’ll need to cut them out, but you can print as many as you need for your child’s classmates.
Take some small bubble tubes and tape them to the cards using patterned washi tape (or clear tape if that’s all you have!).
Fill out the “to” and “from” — and you’re set!
Scented Marker Valentine’s Card
This is another fun Valentine’s Day gift idea for preschoolers! Give your kid’s preschool classmates each a scented marker with their Valentine’s card.
- “you’re scent-sational” Valentine
- washable scented markers
- washi tape (optional, but adds a fun touch)
You’ll receive two high quality downloads: one is editable in the “from” space and the other is for kiddos who like to hand-write their own name.
Print your marker Valentine cards on 8.5”x11″ cardstock, cut, and tape on a scented marker of your choice. You can either use colored washi tape or clear tape.
Sunglasses Valentine’s card
I’m in love with this adorable Valentine’s gift! It’s so simple, but fun for kids of any age.
When placing your order, add your child’s name to the notes section and you’ll receive the download with the “from” name already filled out.
There will be four glasses Valentine cards per sheet. Print on heavy duty 8.5”x11″ cardstock, then cut out each card.
Attach the glasses using either clear tape or by punching a couple of holes to thread the glasses’ arms through.
Play-Doh Valentine Cards
Play-doh is so much fun, and these cute cards come in a few different designs:
- Doh you want to be my Valentine?
- You are a-doh-able
- You are doh best!
- I hope you have a doh-riffic Valentine’s Day
Buy and print the play-doh Valentine cards onto 8.5”x11″ cardstock and and cut them out.
Trim out the inner circle, sign the cards, and place the play-doh inside.
And that’s it. Easy peasy!
A-maze-ing Card With Pencil
Many preschoolers are just starting to get into mazes, so this is perfect for that age. It’s a heart-shaped maze that you can give with a Valentine themed pencil — they’ll love it!
Purchase and download the a-maze-ing” Valentine and open up the pdf file. Edit the highlighted fields — you can even change the font, text size, and text color!
Then print onto 8.5”x11″ cardstock (there will be four cards per sheet), cut, and insert the pencil.
Glow Stick Cards
“You light up my life.” Glow sticks are always a big hit with kids, and these glow stick Valentines are sure to light up their faces!
Purchase and download the glow stick Valentine template and make any edits, then print the cards on 8.5”x11″ cardstock.
Cut the cards along the dashed lines and insert the glow sticks (or you can leave as-is if desired).
“Sip, Sip, Hooray!” Straw Valentine
Every kid loves drinking with a crazy straw! Consider this fun Valentine’s Day gift idea for your kiddo’s preschool classmates.
Buy the printable straw Valentine template, download and print onto 8.5”x11″ cardstock. Cut them out and fill out the “from” spot with your kiddo’s name.
Punch a hole towards the top and one at the bottom of each card, threading a straw through each one.
