Whether you adore the red and pink romance of Valentine’s Day, or despise its cynical commercialism – you’ve still got to eat. Why not kill two birds with one stone, and keep everyone happy in the process?
7 edible Valentine’s Day gifts
These edible gift ideas should help.
1. Doughnut bouquet
Flowers are nice, but a bouquet of doughnuts definitely says, ‘I love you’ better.
2. Valentine’s tic tacs
In a brand new relationship (or a very old one) and want to show you care without going overboard? Valentine’s Tic Tacs are the answer.
3. Heart-shaped beef Wellington
You’ll have to go and eat dinner at Harrods for this (or attempt to make it yourself), but beef Wellington is always worth making an effort for – especially when it’s heart-shaped.
4. A personal fondue pot
You might not want to share this Dark Chocolate & Raspberry Fondue Pot from Fortnum & Mason (£16.95).
5. Heart-shaped pizza
Pizza may not technically be an aphrodisiac, but it’s definitely a total joy for all involved. See if your local pizzeria is willing to make yours heart-shaped.
6. Chocolate button trees
Scrap the lovey-dovey card and order your beau a personalised chocolate button tree instead (they do Haribo ones too), from gettingpersonal.com (£24.99).
7. Heart-shaped waffle maker
Fun to make together, tasty to eat, and essential for soaking up all that Valentine’s Day wine the morning after.
