I never thought I'd be that mom complaining about sugar intake while searching for candy-free Valentine options, but here I am! It feels like candy is constantly sneaking it's way into the house and the sheer volume of it is overwhelming. When I was a kid, we might have received conversation hearts of Hershey kisses with our Valentine's Day cards, but my kids come home with goodie bags filled with candy.

I don't want to add to the cluster of candy coming home on Valentine's Day this year so I took to Pinterest to find an equally enjoyable candy-free Valentine gift my kids friends will love! When I saw friendship bracelets surface with adorable Valentine tags, I knew I was on to something great!

Take a look at today's video to find out if I decide these candy-free Valentine gifts were a Pinterest win or a Pinterest fail!:
