    I can never think of what to buy boys for Valentine's Day. Bath and Body had their small bottles of lotions and body washes on sale for a dollar, and mini hand gels 5 for 5 dollars...and since I only have 7 girls, I bought some. Dollar Tree had the puffs 2 for a dollar so I bought those. I never know what to give the boys...any suggestions?

    My son is in third and he always likes when he gets pencils. Now, a bunch of hearts is probably not what they would want, maybe you can find smiley faces or sports. Mini calculators are fun too and often available at the dollar store. I guess I'm just suggesting you pick up something fun that really doesn't have anything to do with Valentines Day but will be enjoyed!

    what about pokemon, bakuguns or Goku stickers? they often sell them at the dollar store. same with Pirates of Carribean stickers. My boys love 'em.

    They also like Army/camoflague pencils and pens or anything with WWE on it, even if the stuff is outdated and from the dollar store.

    I'm not a teacher so sorry for loging on here but you may help me with my delema.

    I'm serving in Kuwait right now and will be here for the next two months. I'm sending my wife flowers at work for V-day and my daughter flowers at School.

    My delema is this. I want to send my son something also to school for V-day but I have no idea what. He is in the 5th grade and while I was searching for Ideas this site came up. Hey you guys are teachers and know the kids better then most parents. So any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks.

    For dwolfe

    The florist shops also have stuff for guys. A basket of snacks or candy. A bouquet of balloons?

    All of my kids are getting candy bracelets that look like watches. I know a few of them will enjoy wearing them more than eating them so it should be amusing :)

    Of course, I'm only giving them out at the end of the day to save the other teachers hating me for giving the kids candy to play with and eat.
