Giving Food Gifts to Someone On an Specialty Diet

I have a gluten-allergy and ten years ago it was practically impossible to find any products on store-shelves that were gluten-free! However, now that gluten-free has become a bit of a fad diet and a more common food allergy there are hundreds more products available for purchase. I even found gluten-free toaster pastries the other day! My friends love to surprise me with new gluten-free products as gifts, and I think it's a great idea for anyone with a food allergy or who is on a special diet. Sometimes those products are more expensive than their "normal" counterparts, and it's very touching when someone remembers your dietary needs when giving you a food gift.

Make Your Own Box of Chocolates

Richard Cadbury invented the first Valentine's Day candy box in the late 1800s in Victorian England and now more than 36 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate are sold for Valentine's Day each year! Every brand, from all-American Hershey to gourmet European chocolatiers, creates deluxe boxes, in all shapes, of different flavored chocolate candies. Whether it be caramel, dark chocolate cream, raspberry, mint or classic vanilla, everyone has their favorite (and least favorite!) chocolate bonbon flavor in that box. Instead of grabbing any old box off the shelf this Valentine's Day why not make your own for your sweetheart! It's actually a lot easier than you think, and nothing is sweeter than a gift from the heart.
