February 14th is around the corner, and store shelves are already stocked with Valentine’s Day candy.
Instead of a box of chocolates this year, why not pick out something unique to tell that special someone in your life how much you love them?
Try one of these delectable choices, and don’t worry – they all pair nicely with a nice, thoughtful card!
Gifts for Him, Her, and the Kids
These homemade caramel-covered apples will have you saying goodbye to Edible Arrangements. While they’re a little pricey, once you’ve tasted one, you’ll understand why.
You can buy one apple with the topping of your choice (starting at $28.99) or opt for a larger gift basket. Mrs. Prindables also offers chocolate-covered pretzels ($17.99). So many delicious options; you’ve got to try one of these!
Goldbelly is making it possible to enjoy a date-night dinner or dessert by shipping in food from hot spots in many U.S. cities. You can try something like a heart-shaped Chicago-style deep dish pizza ($77.99), or a cheesecake from Texas ($75).
Or how about a Piecaken (chocolate pecan pie, vanilla cheesecake, and red velvet cake all layered together with strawberry – champagne buttercream.)?!
From America’s top chefs, from extravagant cakes and chocolates to gourmet meal kits, plan the best dinner date of your life — from the comfort of your own home!
In addition to gifts for your loved one with a sweet tooth, 1-800-Baskets is also offering savory gift baskets as well as thoughtful presents to pamper that special someone.
Baskets like the My Valentine Bear and Sweets Basket ($34.99) or the Hedgehugs For You Sweets Box ($39.99) make it simple by combining adorable stuffed animals with scrumptious treats in an embellished box overflowing with the finest gourmet delicacies, creamy chocolates, heart-shaped cookies and more.
You can also opt for flowers or one of their spa gift baskets.
With three delicious flavors (Caramel, Cheddar Cheese & Kettle Corn) any snack lover is sure to enjoy this gourmet 2-gallon tin with fresh popcorn. This would probably last 2-3 days (at most!) in our home.
Other Valentine’s Day gifts that will touch them
Perfect for a long-distance relationship or friendship, these lamps ($210 for a set of 2 or $105 for a single) will keep you in touch no matter how many miles away you are.
Simply touch your lamp and your loved one’s lamp will light up at the same time as yours. All you need is to connect both lamps to WiFi and an app on each partner’s smartphone. What a great new way to let someone know you’re thinking of them!
For a nostalgic gift, gather your favorite photos of you and your Valentine and order a Reel Viewer ($29.95) and watch as they click through the memories.
The childhood gadget comes in four colors and you can order additional reels of photos once you’ve purchased your first one. Such a unique gift!
