Who can resist Peeps? It is the one item item that we can’t wait to find in the candy aisle during each holiday. Did you know that you can buy Peeps apparel and other accessories as well? They make great Valentine’s Day gifts for kids and adults that can’t get enough of Peeps! Plus, you can get creative and use Peeps for many Valentine’s Day dessert recipes, crafts, and more.
Valentine’s Day Gifts for Kids
Valentine’s Day is by nature a sweet holiday – in many ways. I enjoy giving my kids their favorite candies during holidays and don’t think there is anything wrong with indulging every now and then. However, it is also a great and practical idea to give gifts that can be enjoyed much longer as well. Peeps has a rather large assortment of gifts for all ages that would be excellent anytime of year, and perfect as Valentine’s Day gifts for kids.
My daughter is modeling the Peeps Chillin tie dye tshirt. It says “Chillin with my Peeps” on the front with a few Peeps on the front. It is too adorable, available in pink, orange, and navy for boys and girls. This is a fun gift that will be enjoyed for much longer than just candy!
My kids are both on swim teams, so a Chillin with My Peeps Beach Towel is an excellent kids Valentine’s Day gift or for anytime of year. It is super soft with vibrant colors of either blue or pink. It is a great size for the pool or beach for kids or adults at 30″ x 60″. Again, all of the holiday candies will be long gone while your kids will still be enjoying this kids Valentine’s Day gift!
Peeps gifts are super sweet and kids love them! Peeps also offers a variety of gift items both with and without the sweet Peeps candy. See below and shop on the Peeps website for your sweetie!

If you are looking for a special Valentine’s Day Dessert recipe, check out Peeps Valentine’s Day Recipes. These desserts would make excellent Valentine’s Day school party desserts, Valentine’s Day party, or just a special dessert for your family on Valentine’s Day.

I think I’ll make the Chocolate Strawberry Tart dessert and add it to my kids lunch for Valentine’s Day. It is small enough since it uses mini tart shells – I’m sure my kids will get a kick out of it!
Peeps Valentine’s Day Crafts
Peeps also has a couple Valentine’s Day craft ideas that you can make with your kids.
You can make a Valentine’s Day frame using Mike and Ike or Hot Tamales for a deliciously hot frame this Valentine’s Day! Just be sure kids know it is not to eat!
The Peeps Valentine’s Day favor bags look easy enough for kids to help make for Valentine’s Day school party favors. Use clear cellophane bags tied with ribbon and fill with Peeps Marshmallow Hearts and Bear and other candies. This would make for a great Valentine’s Exchange gift item as well.
