The viral pandemic may make it hard for couples with kids to celebrate the day of love but with some fun simple gifts, Valentine's Day can be a day for a family celebration. The Valentine holiday may have been created as a way for people to show affection for the one that they love but this can be a day for your family to spend time with each other.

 It can be a wonderful day to exchange gifts or just a day for doing something special as a family. Since Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday this year, you can forget about work and online school and make it a fun family day. Start the day with some healthy chocolate pancakes and then, later on, make a heart-shaped pizza. Some other fun ideas for this fun family day is baking cookies or making doughnuts in the air fryer. If the weather is nice, you can get outdoors and enjoy a day at the park. Maybe your idea of a fun day is staying in and watching tons of movies. This stay home holiday can a time for the family to turn off those electric devices and show love to one another with some fun gifts. I created a list of Valentine's gifts for the whole family. This list has a wide variety of gifts and most of them are affordable gifts that won't break the bank. So have fun checking out my favorite gifts for Valentine's day.

Gifts for the whole family

10. SHASHI Cool Feet Socks 

 I hate tight bulky socks and when the weather is warmer, I prefer to go barefoot inside my house. So when I do have to wear socks, I want them to be ultra-comfortable and feel like I am not wearing socks. My favorite style of socks is no-show socks as I hate tight socks around my ankles. So when I discovered SHASHI socks, I just had to try a pair.

 Designed by women for women, SHASHI Cool Feet Socks are a fashion-forward and functional patented mesh grip sock designed as an alternative to the unimaginative, bulky socks on the market. Wherever you wear your SHASHIs, someone is sure to ask, Where did you get those socks? These socks are perfect for everyday use - from at-home workouts, lounging around the house,  at work, or even at the gym. These unique socks have a patented mesh top panel with COOLMAX® moisture-wicking fabric for comfort. I love the left and right foot design for a custom fit and the large grips for stability. With so many styles and sizes to choose from, there is a pair of SHASHI socks for every member of the family.

14. Sweet Chaos Popcorn

 Popcorn is a great holiday snack that can be enjoyed while watching your favorite Valentine's Day movie. When these popcorn snacks arrived at my house, my boys wanted to indulge in them right away as the flavors all sounded amazing. I had to hide the bags of popcorn until I was able to take pictures. Once the bags of Sweet Chaos were opened, my family could not stop snacking on the delicious popcorn. 

Sweet Chaos Popcorn is available in so many sweet and savory flavors. My favorite flavors of this delicious popcorn are Honey Chipotle, Kettle Corn, and Sea Salt. These three flavors are dairy-free so I can enjoy the yummy popcorn. My family said all the flavors of Sweet Chaos Popcorn were bursting with flavor. I really love how much popcorn is packed into the bags so there is plenty to share.
