I always like to get my kids a little something for Valentine's Day. My mom did few special things for us as kids, but this was one of them. Even if it was just a little stuffed animal or a special kind of candy, it made me feel loved. I wanted to carry on the tradition with my kids.

I'm curious if others get their older kids V-Day gifts. Sometimes I'll get them something cute, corny, funny. This year I got them each an I-tunes gift card.

We like to celebrate things in our own way here. Especially all the "Hallmark Holidays". I have 3 kids: DS17, DD14, DD9. We always go out and by discounted chocolates after the fact. But for the day itself, we:

-Make heart shaped pizzas for dinner.
-Hide color-coded "love" notes around the house to find.
-Make small gifts for each other. (regifting is okay too)

This year I have made them all ID Elvish...

That's cute. I always make my famous heart-shaped meatloaf. Neither kids will be home this year, but H knows to expect it. I'm always so proud of it!

Mine are not adults, but older teens. I get up early and make heart shaped pancakes and get them each a little something. I don't see that ever changing. Same thing with Easter baskets.

I used to give DS a video game and a box of choclate covered cherries for Valentine's Day. He will always be my valentine

Sent AJ and his GF a card and gift card to Bed, Bath and Beyond.

Normally he would have gotten a card, some candy and a gift card to eat somewhere, but he's growing up, dammit!

Time to share the love!

We seriously need a pic of the heart shaped meatloaf.

Mine's an early teen. She doesn't like candy that much. So she is getting a top and matching scarf she wanted. I ordered it right after xmas, so it was a great deal.
