Valentine's Day is the one day a year dedicated solely to showing your love for others (though I think you should express your love during the other 364 days of the year, too). Some people choose to make it all lovey dovey, while others (like me) could care less about romance but still want to celebrate the holiday. No matter which group you're in, you'll need at least one good gift for that special someone. Whether you're gifting yourself something or are shopping for another, these 15 edible Valentine's Day gifts are the thoughtful gift you've been looking for.

1. Tie-Dye Ice Cream Cone Cake Pops

If Starbucks can mass produce several different holiday cake pops each year for their several locations, then you can totally make these tie-dye cake pops for your significant other. If you're telling me that you can't take an hour out of your life for the one that you love, you need to examine your priorities in life.

2. Brunch in Bed with Homemade Mimosas

This would be great for your mom or dad. The amount of times they changed your diapers, made you food, and made sure that you had everything and anything that you could ever want is incomparable to what you could do in return for them.

Since they've made you breakfast every day for at least 18 years of your life, you can return the favor by making their favorite brunch dishes with homemade mimosas on the side while they get to relax in bed.

3. Boozy Milkshakes

All you have to do is buy a handful of ingredients, invite some friends over, and make some boozy ice cream milkshakes together to show them that you're always there for them and that they don't need a significant other in order to be loved.

4. Cake-in-a-Jar

Rachel Davis

Since you'll probably be at work on Valentine's Day, make this cake in a jar for your coworkers who commiserate.

5. Pasta with Wine

Just because you're not dating anyone doesn't mean you're not entitled to practice self-love on Valentine's Day. Sometimes you need to be able to love yourself before loving anyone else, which is why making pasta for yourself with a glass of wine on the side is one of the best edible Valentine's Day gifts you can give yourself. If you're tired of plain spaghetti, try one of these 17 pasta recipes. 

6. S'mores

chocolate, oatmeal, sandwich, peanut butter
Danielle Chen

If you and your S/O love outdoor adventures, make s'mores at home while reminiscing on all the fun times you've had together. If a bonfire isn't an option, roast the marshmallows under the broiler in the oven for a minute or so. 

7. Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

Put a few chocolate-covered pretzels into cute baggies to give as gifts to your classmates. Most, if not all, of you are going to be hungry in your class, and your classmates will probably show you some form of love for giving them free food.

8. Any Spiked Warm Drink

If you live with a roommate, they might be a little lonely and cold on Valentine's Day, too—after all, it's in the middle of February and wintertime. Help them heat up with their favorite warm drink with the added benefit of some booze. Make them one of these 10 spiked hot chocolates or one of these 11 hot cocktails.

9. Nutella Pancakes

11. Salad 

lettuce, spinach, salmon, lemon, cheese, tomato, pepper
Josi Miller

Make your healthy friend a salad, because there's no better way of telling them that you love them then by supporting their love of healthy food. If you want to take your gift up a notch, meal prep a few different salads for the week. When your friend eats their cute mason jar salad, they'll think of their favorite Valentine. 

12. A Jumbo Margarita

Definitely spend time making your law school friend a jumbo margarita with their favorite alcohol to show them that you love everything that they do for you.

14. Sushi Burrito

Make your sushi loving friend a sushi burrito, not because you enjoy feeding them, but because you know that they'd rather be eating sushi than engaging in human interaction—including you.

15. Pizza Night
