Delicious Valentine's Gift Ideas

When it comes to romance, we’re most comfortable showing our love in the kitchen. But treasures to have and to hold? That’s a little more complicated. We asked our pals at Etsy for a little help sorting out gift options this Valentine’s Day.

We’ve paired our tasty recipes with unique gifts from Etsy for a match made in heaven! Wow your sweetheart with a thoughtful one-of-a-kind treasure and a plateful of something delicious.

Breakfast in Bed

Serve your sweetheart Heart-Shaped Egg-in-Hole and a tall glass of Cherry Almond Smoothie on this gorgeous breakfast tray by Etsy Seller grayworkdesign.

Cozy Up with Cocoa

Baby, it’s still cold outside! Wrap your honey’s hands around Etsy Seller LoveArtWorks’ sweet personalized mug of our creamy Homemade Hot Chocolate.


DIY Aromatherapy / Spa Experience

Lavish your loved one with the soothing scent of DIY Lavender Rose Potpourri and the silky embrace of a luxurious robe from Etsy Seller Angela Friedman.


Candlelit Dinner

Twirl this tasty Spinach Fettuccine with Artichokes and Sun-Dried Tomatoes around Etsy Seller MilkandHoneyLuxuries’ custom-stamped forks for a special dinner for two.


Room for Dessert

Don’t forget dessert! Red Wine Strawberries and Cream will make your taste buds sing a perfect toast as you clink glasses decorated with these charming accessories by Etsy Seller kraze4paper.

The All You Need Is Love mugs are perfect for making Valentine's Day special. We have known the very talented artist, Kris Love, since she was a young girl. Everything she designs is special and unique. Whole foods is our favorite place to shop.
