Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and we all know what that means. Either you will be running to the nearest drug store to snatch that last heart-shaped box filled with chocolates or sending the typical roses and a teddy bear. Not this year! Listen up and take note, not everyone wants to receive below-average heart-shaped candy, even if it does come in a “cute” box. Jewelry or a new tie may still be viable options, but the best way to a person’s heart is through their stomach. If your sweetheart loves food, there are plenty of affordable, delectable gifts that will let them know you care. Your originality might even earn you extra brownie points. Pun intended. Here are my top 5 V-day gifts for your foodie lover:
1. Ladurée Macarons
These macarons are irresistible. Not only are they practically world-famous, but they are also magically delicious. Yes, I just quoted the Lucky Charms leprechaun. I was not a macaron lover before, but after trying these, I am definitely changed. Skip the traditional sweets and opt for an original, yet tasty treat. Order them here!
2. Georgetown Cupcakes
Georgetown Cupcakes are the best cupcakes you can buy. And appropriately, these are even garnished with XO hearts. So why not gift your foodie with a present that will really make their taste buds tingle? Order them here!
3. Holey Donuts
I heard about these amazing gourmet donuts from my mom. These donuts are low fat, which is perfect – your sweetie can indulge and not have to worry about all the calories on your special night. Order them here!
4. 5-pound Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar
I know I said no chocolate, but this is not your typical boxed chocolate. A whopping 5 pounds of chocolate means your valentine can enjoy this treat for days.
5. Cooking Class
If your foodie happens to be on a health kick, why not offer them a chance to learn how to make their own healthy dishes with a cooking class? This gift will show them you truly care and would make for a perfect date night.
