Sure, you’ve just put the holiday lights away and the gravy boat back on the top shelf, but February 14 will be here before you know it. And if you’re feeling out of ideas for Cupid’s favorite day, no worries, we’re here to help. For a little gifting inspiration that goes beyond the usual flowers and chocolate, dig into these 6 delicious food gifts for Valentine’s Day. They’re sure to liven up the flavor of any romance.

1: Breakfast fixings – served in bed

Who doesn’t love pancakes with all the fixings? Even if your loved one is more of a waffle maven, you can’t go wrong with a rich assortment of pancake mix, jam, syrup, and maple butter. Present it in a pretty basket or double down by making them breakfast in bed. Imagine — a scrumptious spread of fluffy hotcakes topped with berries and a steaming demitasse of espresso served bedside.

This is one of our favorite food gifts for Valentine’s Day, and easily pulled off thanks to great offers from Stonewall Kitchen. The brand — known for its quality ingredients and single batch runs — is offering up to 70% off on gourmet foods & fine home goods.

2: Passion-infused tea

To complement your loved one’s 2021 wellness regime, get them a selection of fine organic teas from Harney & Sons. Whether it’s classics like Earl Grey or signature blends like Hot Cinnamon Spice, Matcha, or Bamboo, Harney is passionate about great tea.

If you’re looking for something really special, try their line of Blooming Art teas, like the Double Calendula Blossom. When steeped in hot water, the tea leaf cluster at the bottom of the cup unfolds to reveal deliciously fragrant tea, as well as an actual flower blossom. If that isn’t romantic we don’t what is.
