With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the perfect gift to give to your Valentine. Valentine’s Day gift giving can sometimes be tricky so if you’re unsure of what to give, you can never go wrong with any of these tasty treats:
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Right up there with red roses, chocolate is a Valentine’s Day staple. If you’re accustomed to buying your loved one a box of chocolates, why not step it up a notch this year and give them chocolate covered strawberries instead? Strawberries can be covered in milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate. Special Valentine’s Day strawberries are decorated with pink and red frosting and sprinkles. Yum!
Chocolate Covered…Anything Else!
Outside of chocolate covered strawberries, there are plenty of other chocolate covered items that make lovely Valentine’s Day gifts for chocolate lovers. If you prefer fruit you can purchase chocolate covered apples, raspberries, cherries, blackberries, blueberries, grapes, and pears. Other popular options include chocolate covered potato chips, pretzels, graham crackers, cake pops, and cookies.
Maybe you’re looking for some variety in a tasty Valentine’s Day gift basket? If you’re looking for something salty instead of sweet, how about a popcorn tin filled with three different kinds of gourmet popcorn? If your Valentine’s Day date consists of spending the night in watching movies, a gift basket filled with both popcorn AND candy is perfect for someone with a serious sweet tooth.
If you’d prefer to give a gift of the “liquid dessert” variety, how about a wine gift basket? No matter what your sweetie’s preference (red or white, sweet or dry) there is a gift basket to meet your needs. Wine gift baskets come with other treats included such as peanuts, crackers, cookies, chocolates, pretzels, pasta, sauce, and more, depending on which basket you purchase. Baskets with champagne are also available.
Any beer aficionado out there would be appreciative of a special Valentine’s Day beer bucket that includes an assortment of microbrew beers such as Samuel Adams Seasonal, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Magic Hat #9, Leinenkugel, Long Trail Seasonal Ale, and Smuttynose Old Brown Dog. Since beer must be accompanied by snacks, these gift baskets (buckets) include those too. Dipping pretzels, beef jerky, crackers, popcorn are all included. A larger version of the beer bucket includes Newcastle, Sapporo, Stella Artois, Guinness, Red Stripe, Corona, Grolsch, Blue Moon, Kirin Ichiban, Molson XXX, Tsingtao, and Samuel Adams and cheddar cheese.
Is your mouth watering yet? We thought so! If you know that the way to someone’s heart is via their taste buds than one of these gifts is the perfect choice. (And hopefully your Valentine is willing to share!)
