Whether or not you bought into the Hallmark holiday that is Valentine’s Day prior to becoming a parent, you’re probably more into it now that you’ve learned a love like no other: the one you have for your child. Even the least sentimental moms and dads can get behind the idea of taking extra time out of their day to celebrate the love(s) of their life.

From a sweet card to a beautiful board book to precious pajamas to a brand-new bottle set clad in hearts, here are some of our favorite gift ideas for baby’s first Valentine’s Day.

How do you celebrate baby’s first Valentine’s Day?

How you choose to celebrate your baby’s first Valentine’s Day is entirely up to you— and it may depend on how you or your family have celebrated Valentine’s Days in the past. You can choose to go big by purchasing balloons, chocolate (of course, not for your baby to eat!), flowers and the whole nine yards or simply keep things low key and focus on giving your baby lots and lots of kisses (after all, that’s what new parents do best!). 

What is Valentine’s Day for babies?

Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is a romantic holiday celebrated by couples, but it’s really just about love, which is certainly not exclusive to a significant other. If you’re a mom, the true love of your life is probably your child (or children), so it only makes sense to include them in the celebration. Valentine’s Day for babies might be any type of celebration you can imagine— big or small, all day or simply a quick moment over the course of a busy day.

When would a Valentine’s baby be born?

If you conceived on Valentine’s Day— like, that very night— your baby would have a due date of November 7th. Of course, due dates aren’t always accurate and your baby could be born earlier or later than that, but you could expect a baby due sometime around the mid-to-late fall.

How many babies are born on Valentines Day?

Believe it or not, there are a lot of babies born on Valentine’s Day— an estimated 11,636 babies, making it the most popular day to be born during the months between January and June.

Baby’s First Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day may be a Hallmark holiday, but it certainly serves as a welcomed excuse to buy something sweet for your littlest love— and, while you’re at it, maybe yourself too (after all, you know you deserve it for all the hard work you’re putting in to keep your kiddo alive and happy!). The gift doesn’t have to be expensive, elaborate or even well-thought-out—just a little something to help you and your baby celebrate this special day together.
