Instead of yet another plush animal, or a huge supply of sugary candy, why not buy a totally cute, yet practical pair of shoes for the kids? These carefully selected styles make wearability beyond February 14th a priority. This way the money you spend is worth it, and the kids won't look silly after the "lovely" holiday has passed.
Solid red or pink shoes are kept to classic brands -- because even in bold colors these styles keep their cool factor. Other shoes showcase only a pop pop of Valentine color, a nod to the eye-catching color palette, without making the shoes too numbingly Valentine-y.
If you can't resist, line the shoes with red tissue paper and fill with dark chocolate (or just throw a few pieces in the box), then let them burn off the extra sugar by running around in their new kicks.
Clicking the pictures will take you to a site for purchase.
