If there’s one way to anyone’s heart, it’s through food.

With Valentine’s Day only coming around once a year, make sure you’re spoiling your significant other in the way they deserve. Not just any sweet treat will do – only the best for your bestie!

Who can resist luxurious chocolate or an extravagant hamper? Not me! That’s why I’ve come up with a list of my favourite foodie gift ideas so that you can treat your OH – and get to enjoy the treats yourself too!

1 Chocolate

Sometimes, sticking to tradition is best. Chocolate has long been the go-to gift for a beloved Valentine, and there’s a good reason for this. Chocolate affects your head and heart, with a rush of love following the sweet bite of a chocolate bar. Really, chocolate tastes as heavenly as it looks, and is (I would argue!) guaranteed to melt the heart of your darling. 

It doesn’t have to be the most expensive brand or the biggest box of chocolates – any type, flavour or size of chocolately gift will be happily received. You could even bake your own chocolate cake or biscuits as a personalised treat.

2 Cheese

To really spoil your sweetheart this Valentine’s, you can never go wrong with a luxe cheese board. Personally, cheese is my favourite treat at any time of year – so I’m definitely going to be putting together a special selection for Valentine’s Day.

Is there anything better than a charcuterie board or tapas selection to help you recall memories of a beautiful weekend getaway abroad? With camembert en croute, some cheese-stuffed peppers or sun-dried tomato hummus, you can make the perfect sharing platter to please your Valentine, and satisfy your tastebuds, too.

3 A steak meal

Whether you dine out, or attempt this dish at home, steak is the celebratory meal; making it the perfect centrepiece to a romantic Valentine’s menu. Here’s a recipe I’ve used before to make sirloin steak with boulangere potatoes. By gifting your Valentine a steakhouse style meal, you’re really showing how much love and attention you’re willing to put into the relationship – after all, cooking steak is no easy feat!

4 A bottle of bubbly

No Valentine’s meal is complete without the pièce de résistance – a glass of Champagne! Don’t just buy any Champagne, however. Buy your Valentine the really good stuff or, if you’re on a budget, a really lovely prosecco or English sparkling wine should do the trick.

5 Indulgent desserts

Of course, any dessert is a good dessert, but there’s nothing quite so romantic as a serving of Tiramisu or an indulgent cheesecake. Both options are lush, decadent and delicious; the richness of these desserts would be the perfect end to a Valentine’s Day dinner – luxurious, sensuous and loved by (pretty much) everyone.

5 Valentine’s Day meal hamper

There’s nothing better than sharing a meal with your loved one, this Valentine’s Day. If you’re spending the night in, why not have a Valentine’s Day meal kit delivered to your door. That way, you won’t need to worry about finding ingredients, or searching for complicated recipes.

A luxurious hamper gives your loved one something to unwrap on Valentine’s Day and provides the promise of an indulgent evening to come. A meal kit will have everything you will need to spoil your Valentine and satisfy your appetite in one fell swoop. In short, it’s the sure way to treat your Valentine right this year!
