Deciding on a gift for Valentine's Day can be quite challenging! What do you get for the person who has everything? Do you choose something useful and risk being boring? Or maybe something fun?  Food gifts for Valentine’s Day can be a great choice!

Why? If you make the food gift yourself, you are putting forth time and effort to make the perfect treat for your valentine. Also, holidays are typically times when people feel as though they can indulge in sweet treats. It can be a great way for someone to have their favorite dessert, without feeling guilty. Another plus side is some food gifts aren't that hard to make or that expensive to buy. You can pick something your valentine can enjoy without taxing your skills... or your wallet.

Here are some simple treats that are perfect for Valentine's Day:

  1. Fudge - Fudge requires only a few ingredients and comes in many different flavors. Also, many candy stores and bakeries offer fudge if you don't have the time to make it. The simplest recipe consists of melting 2 cups of chocolate chips, mixing the melted chocolate with 2 1/2 cups of chocolate frosting, and then you pour into a pan and chill until firm. Of course there are more advanced recipes for those who are daring...
  2. Chocolate dipped fruit - Another popular choice that can be done on your own or purchased. It is healthier than a box of chocolates, but very tasty. It is seen as a very romantic gift and one not often enjoyed during the rest of the year!
  3. Cookies - Heart-shaped sugar cookies are easily found in stores. Some stores even offer unfrosted ones. Whether you make your own or purchase them from a store, they can be a sweet treat. Consider purchasing some icing so you can decorate the cookies yourself. Can't write small? Maybe make giant cookie cake, then you can write your sweet messages, or love quotes so much bigger.
  4. Pre-made edible bouquets - The great thing about these are they can easily be made as healthy or non-healthy as you want. This is great for people who have allergies or can't eat certain foods. There are fruit bouquets, candy bouquets, etc. These are creative and fun!
