As Valentine’s Day approaches, we wonder: Why is it that almost every holiday is associated with sugar? Halloween candy, Christmas cookies, Valentine’s chocolates… What do chocolate bars and candy hearts have to do with showing affection to our loved ones?
Similar to the Teal-Pumpkin movement around Halloween, we’re changing the way we celebrate Valentine’s Day. With the rise in childhood allergies and school-enforced restrictions on what kids are allowed to eat at school, we’re removing candy from the equation altogether.
Instead of sweets, how them you care with a little gift they’re sure to love. From Metallic Robot Pens to Cookie Coin Purses, Trick Gliders to Vintage Kaleidoscope Cameras, surprise the class with treats that will last longer than a lollipop. A token to spark their imaginations, not new cavities. Their teachers (and their dentists) will thank you.
BONUS for Mom: Free printed Valentine’s Day cards are included when you buy 6 or more of any item in our Valentine’s Collection. Now that’s truly something to love.
