Valentine's Day gift for New Daddy

It's our first Valentine's Day with our first-born little girl. We are starting a tradition that Daddy takes his two girls out on a "date" and he will give our daughter her first Build-a-Bear with other little gifts. Our intentions on making it a family holiday rather than a Mommy and Daddy holiday (besides that's what our wedding anniversary is really for) is to celebrate our love as a family, and also show our little girl how men are suppose to treat women on Valentine's day.

But I'm stuck on his gift!!! I have NO clue what to get him "from" her. She's 10.5 months old. I already got a card and had her "sign" it. I don't know what else to get. I'm not opposed to buying or handmaking something.

Any suggestions will be helpful!

  • You can see some kid activities for Valentine's Day here   I like a picture frame, the two of you making his favorite cookies/dessert,  an "I love you daddy" book so they can read together....see some here

  • You can do a picture collage for him of her to put up at work, with one of her toys as a remember me while working type thing, a way for him to keep a piece of her with him al the time.

  • Oh, I would get him a "World's Greatest Dad" mug or mouse pad for his office, and have his favorite picture of her added to it--maybe soon after she was born--when she was all snuggly cute?! :o)

    Better photo finishing centers do this, and it's not that expensive. Here's a center that I use in eastern PA to give you some other ideas...

  • You could make some clay with a recipe online or from a craft store. Then take her feet and make them into a heart, heels together. Or her hands palms up and fingers together at the bottom to make the point at the bottom of a heart. Then you can write that poem, sorry I can't remember it all correctly, but something like a father holds his daughter's hand for a while but her heart forever.
