Valentine’s Day Student Gift Ideas & Gift Tags
There is just something special about celebrating Valentine’s Day with young children – the excitement of giving and receiving special valentines, all the talk about love, kindness, and friendship, and just the overall wonderful feeling of having an extra special day to celebrate your love for them. This is why I like to add an extra touch to my student Valentine’s Day gifts.
I like the students to feel special and that their gift was truly from the heart so I don’t give the same gift from year to year or from class to class – I like to “mix it up” each year! Here are some of my favorite Valentine’s Day student gifts & gift tags. They are simple yet touching, giving you a quick, inexpensive way to send a special valentine to your students. The trinkets are merely suggestions, you don’t have to attach the tags to gifts, simply personalize and print them to give as valentine cards.

I also like surprising students with a little extra treat on celebration days making them feel special and making the day more memorable for them. Here are some of my favorite St. Patrick’s Day student treats & gift tags. I really enjoy using Rolo candies to represent the pot and Skittles to represent the rainbow, Peppermint Patties, or Lucky Charms cereal as treats but you can use any treat you like.
