Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching — we can tell because we’re almost out of Christmas candy. Our military kids are tough and resilient, and it’s always nice to give them an extra little love. These unique Valentine’s Day gifts for kids from Daily Mom Military are perfect for your littlest heroes, showing them that military life is tough, but they are even tougher. Some are perfect for when their service-member parent is away, but each one is great for a little extra love every single day.
1Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts for Kids with Budsies
Your child’s best bud is gone, but that doesn’t mean they can’t keep them close. With Budsies, your military kiddo can carry mom or dad’s likeness in the form of a stuffed doll. Each Budsie is created by transforming a picture of your service member into a doll that looks just like them — right down to the uniform they are wearing. If you’re looking for something a little different, Budsies can even recreate your child’s drawing into a stuffed animal — which is perfect for a Valentine’s Day gift or even as something to send to your service member while they are deployed to make them feel a little bit closer to home.
Military families can save 10 percent on any military selfie Budsies by using the code MILITARYFAMILY.

3Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts for Kids with Bond Touch
Valentine’s Day can be a rough holiday when your loved one is not by your side to celebrate it. But distance doesn’t have to mean you both have to spend the day without each other’s touch.
Bond Touch is a small, silicone bracelet that connects two people from anywhere on the planet by sending a vibrating signal when one person touches their bracelet. Through the use of a touch sensor, one user simply touches their bracelet twice and immediately, your partner will see an LED signal and feel a vibration on their own bracelet. At $98, you can receive a pair of bracelets — one for each of you — and start forgetting what it was like to miss your loved one’s touch. This is a perfect gift for the friend enduring a long distance relationship or a child wanting to feel her deployed parent’s touch from overseas.
