How to Make Special Valentine's Day Memories

Making memories with your loved ones on Valentine’s Day is just one of things that makes this holiday so sweet! We’ve put together the perfect way to commemorate this special day with a cookie recipe, Valentine’s Day cards, and outfit guides for every Valentine’s Day occasion.  

  1. Bake something sweet 



What’s a better way to show your special someones you love them by baking them a special treat! This recipe is so easy to follow and creates beautiful and festive cookies to be enjoyed by everyone. These cookies can even be the Valentine’s Day treat your children brings to school for their classmates. 

Our Valentine’s Day Jammies are just the thing you need for a fun family night in baking! Our Red Hearts Jammies and Playsuit will be sure to make your girl feel special and the Tugboat Jammies and Playsuit are just the playful print your boy wants.

  1. Make homemade Valentine’s Day cards 


Homemade Valentine’s day cards are a great way to say “I love you”. The effort and creativity that goes into making a card surely beats a store bought card and they will be something you will treasure forever! We've attached three Valentine's Day card templates to for your little ones to color and decorate for the big day. 

 For a day of crafting, check out our play-friendly Applique T-shirt in Tugboat Hearts or our Applique Romper in Tugboat Hearts. Each feature red and white stripes with an adorable applique tugboat. For girl, we love our Annie Diaper Set in Hearts. It will be sure to make you feel festive with their red heart motifs. 

  1. Take Family Photos 


We are a huge advocate for taking family photos for every opportunity. Capturing those precious memories will always be worth the time and effort and your little ones will love having sweet photos to admire when they are older. Planning a Valentine’s day family photo can be easy too! You can stage it in front of your stairs, by the fireplace, or it can be as casual as at the kitchen table before school. Didn’t quite make the deadline for Christmas Card photos? Share a snapshot from your family’s Valentine’s Day festivities with your loved ones instead. It can be a new family tradition!


For little boy, the Applique Peter Pan Pant Set in Tugboat Hearts is the perfect outfit for a family photograph. This all in one outfit, makes dressing for the occasion easy. For baby boy, the Applique Bubble in Tugboat Hearts is an adorable option. It makes for a sweet coordinating sibling look.


For little girl, the Hearts Smocked Peter Pan Dress is just the thing to make this Valentine’s Day sweet. This dress features a peter pan collar with embroidered hearts and smocked hearts at the chest. For baby girl, try the Hearts Smocked Peter Pan Bubble. Both the dress and the bubble have a cute sash in the back for added detail.
