When I was a kid, my mom would leave Valentine’s Day gifts for me to find at the end of my bed when I woke up on Valentine’s Day every year. The presents were usually a cute, new casual outfit and a small, heart-shaped box of chocolates. These surprises always made me feel special and loved.

These days, I like to leave little heart-themed trinkets for my girls in their Valentine envelope-shaped chair backers that my aunt gave us a few years ago. I typically find fun goodies like cups and pencil toppers in the Target Dollar Spot to fill their chair backers every morning of the second week of February. Watching a kid’s eyes light up when they see their surprises, as mine did, is so fun!
