As we enter into the second month of 2021 (how is this even possible??), 529 is prepping for the best COVID-Valentine’s Day ever! Just because the kids are on Zoom, and most likely not exchanging those precious Valentine’s this year, doesn’t mean we can’t play cupid and make them feel the love! As a mom, I have tried to make things as “normal” as possible for my boys during the pandemic and Valentine’s Day is no exception.
I had so much fun curating a Valentine’s Day assortment fit for every little princess in town. Boy moms have no fear; as a boy mom myself I know the way to little princes’ hearts too. With help from my sweet Ashton (5) we have a super fun selection of toys and games.
I love to get my kids involved in buying for 529. It has inspired the older two to go into business. After their Zoom calls, they head out and set up shop in the neighborhood to sell “cool” vintage-inspired stickers that they purchased in bulk. One of the many silver linings of the past year is the creativity that the kids have been forced to find within.
We are so excited to show off our newest line: Tiny Treats & Zomi Gems. Based in LA, this women-owned, eco-friendly line brings every girl’s dream of carrying a Chanel bag to life. Their precious line of handbags are quilted or tweed and adorned with pearls, of course. They can be carried by the pearl handle or as a crossbody.
Every little gal needs a heart hair accessory. From acrylic headbands to sequins hearts and grosgrain bows, we are stocked with something for every style. They can look fabulous on their Zoom Valentine’s celebration and, of course, on your Instagram feed.
Valentine’s Day would not be complete without a heart print mask. D’maran, a local designer, has been keeping our 529 kiddos safe and on-trend for the past year. So naturally, she created a Valentine’s Day mask assortment that is no exception.
Now for the boys…
As a boy momma, I know it is difficult to keep these boys occupied while we are at home. So, as I said earlier, I turned to the toy expert in my family for help. Ashton created the most fun assortment, and I hope your little guys love the toys as much as Ashton does. We have everything from DIY RC trucks and airplanes that keep them busy for hours to the largest bouncy ball ever made!
Hang in there, mommas! Come see us at 529 and we will help make this Valentine’s Day special.
