I’ve gathered some great ideas from around the web–Pinterest and several of my favorite bloggers are great resources–and I’ve compiled them here so you can sort of browse through and see what really appeals to you and what you think your child would like.
Cool Valentine Box Ideas
Since it’s especially hard for some of our boys to get into the fun of a Valentine’s Day box, these cool Valentine box ideas are perfect–especially as they get older. Be creative and help your son make a box that expresses who he is and what he likes to do. (They all want their friends to say, Cool! when they arrive at school with their Valentine’s box.)

You’ll find some great ideas for your Valentine’s boxes from Susie J. on her blog. My favorite is probably this Basketball Hoop Valentine’s Box.
