You get a Valentine, you get a Valentine, everyone gets a Valentine!

OK, so maybe I've seen that Oprah meme one too many times, but seriously, I love Valentine's Day. And whether you are spending the eternal day of love pregnant, cuddling with your little one, or enjoying a romantic date night at home while you pretend you can't hear your older kids resisting bedtime, we've got a whole round-up of fun Valentine's Day ideas for the whole family.

For Baby

Show your little one some lovin' with this adorable wooden rattle, perfect for all the ways your baby loves to, well, chew and drool on stuff. I love that you don't have to worry about harmful plastic chemicals with this rattle, too.

For Little Girls

I've never been able to resist seasonal outfits for my baby — especially if I can snap a picture of the adorableness to share with the world via my legions of adoring fans on Instagram.

OK, so it's just mostly so I can look back in a year and say awwwww when I am past the baby stage, but that's just as important. I think this onesie is festive enough for the Love Holiday, but still versatile enough to get some good use year round, too!

For You

I'm a teensy bit obsessed with coffee mugs, and I'm always on the hunt for that perfect mug that just speaks to my soul — and will also hopefully speak to me through some delicious, steaming coffee.

How cute is this heart mug, perfect for V-day and all year long?

P.S.: It's personalized, so you can spell out anything that makes your heart soar.

For the Gals

Must.resist.buying.all.the.heart.things.

But I mean, really. This is too cute for words. Perhaps a strategically placed link to your husband wouldn't hurt just this once?

For The Whole Family

I think that games are a wonderful way to bond as a family, so I make a point to always have a new game on rotation in our home. For whatever reason, games don't seem to last that long in our house, unfortunately. (Goodbye Candyland, we had a good run …).

But regardless, I think it's important to just spend time together as a family without a screen. This heart-based memory game that we had a chance to try out has absolutely become a staple in our home, and I just got my butt sorely kicked by my 3-year-old in it last night, as a matter of fact. Good times, good times.

For the Fam

Finally put those conversation hearts to good use with a little whole-family Valentine's Day bingo action. (Seriously, does anyone actually like to eat those things?)

For the Sweet Tooth

You need an easy, fast, and delicious dessert that will look gorgeous but still taste good, and these Oreo Truffles Valentine's Day hearts are sure to not disappoint. I say sneak them once the kids are in bed, and maybe if you're feeling generous you, could even save one or two for the kids the next day.

Or you could just sneak them again. Either way. Get the recipe here.
