Valentine’s Day 2024: Gifts that will win your loved one’s heart (and palate)
Feel the love
Some say every day should be as special as Valentine’s Day, but what’s wrong with a little extra love on February 14? This Valentine’s—or Galentine’s—Day, shower your loved one with extra words of affirmation, quality time, acts of service, or whatever your love language may be. If gift-giving is yours, we’ve got the perfect guide for you.
FOR THE GOURMAND DATES
For a partner whose love language is food, an edible gift is peak romance. Pizza fans will love the novelty of Phil’s Pizza’s heart-shaped pies, available in Margherita and beef pepperoni variations. The pizzas are available for both pick-up and delivery, so they will fit right into your plans for the night. Plus, if you’re looking for a date idea, everyone who pre-orders this pizza gets free seats to a screening of The Notebook on Valentine’s Day at REXKL.
For those with a penchant for sweets, Huckleberry, Lachér Patisserie, and Dou Dou Bake will get you sorted. Huckleberry’s red velvet heart cake is an adorable treat perfect for sharing between you and your date, complete with sprinkles and irresistible frosting. If your Valentine happens to be a fan of raspberries and Earl Grey tea, then Lachér Patisserie’s tastefully-made creation should be your go-to. A combination of Earl Grey, Madagascan vanilla, raspberries, and Valrhona Jivara chocolate, The Valentine’s Cake promises to impress your date.
Lastly, Dou Dou Bake’s gift set—called “Love in Routine”—will charm your date with its delicate pavlova and gorgeous bouquet. The pavlova is made with a mixed fruit compote, whipped cream, and a delightful passion fruit jam. Meanwhile, the bouquet comprises preserved Casphia Purple, Cashia White, Hyacinth Bean, and Pink Papas flowers.
FOR THE OLD SCHOOL LOVERS
Sure, chocolates and flowers might be a little overrated on Valentine’s Day—but who cares? For anyone who can’t say no to some cheesiness and romance in classic forms, these gifts are sure to put a smile on their faces and some flutters in their hearts. Godiva has curated a collection of gift boxes, filled with the brand’s signature truffles and chocolate bites. Similarly, gourmet chocolatier Venchi has put together its collection for the occasion, including a heart-shaped gift box packed with bonbons and sweet bites.
Royce’s limited-edition Valentine’s Day collection will fit right into your day—especially for those who have a liking for Japanese chocolates—including the one-kilogram box loaded with 80 pieces of chocolates. Alternatively, if your Valentine would appreciate nothing more than a simple hot mocha, Ralph’s has a raspberry white chocolate mocha that would fill their heart and tummy
FOR THE HOMEBODY
Forgoing a date night out and choosing to stay in instead? Make your time at home a tad more special with sweet scents from Lilin+Co. candles or flowers from BloomThis. Lilin+Co.’s brand new Rose and Geranium candle arrives just in time for Valentine’s Day, promising to add soft floral scents and calming aromas to your home. For the date who prefers flowers, BloomThis’ series of bouquets and arrangements for the occasion is the answer to your gifting questions, including the Casabella pink hydrangea bouquet.
