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

The outsides are lacy and crispy; the insides are light and fluffy. No, they aren’t Liège Waffles. These are Frasvåfflor or Scandinavian Crisp Waffles from ‘The Nordic Baking Book’ by @magnusfaviken This book is a true experience! They are amazing. They are so easy to whip up (unlike Liège Waffles) But one ingredient isn’t for the faint of heart! I’m actually a little scared to tell you what the main ingredient is. 🤭🤫 Check out my Stories, and let me know if you don’t mind me sharing a ‘not super healthy’ recipe! . Tapped into my stash of frozen currants for a topping. As well as some cherries. Thank you, freezer. . Have a grand Sunday all ☺️ . #waffles #crispwaffles #frasvåfflor #breakfast #brunch #swedish #scandinavian #thebakefeed #sundaymorning #heartshapedwaffles #mypinterest #BHGfood #cuisinesworld #dailyfoodfeed #eattheworld #feedfeed #F52grams #foodgawker #shareyourtable #mydomaineeats #huffposttaste #imsomartha #cratestyle #tastingtable #RSlove #lifeandthyme #mywilliamssonoma #nordicware

Fun to make together, tasty to eat, and essential for soaking up all that Valentine’s Day wine the morning after.
