The great thing about having kids is with a little craftiness (or a clear set of crafting instructions) you're covered pretty much any time you need to give a holiday gift to someone in your family.

Press a baby handprint on some canvas, write "I love you, Daddy," and bam! You just created a thoughtful Valentine's Day gift that will bring tears to the eyes of the receiver.
