Great ways to say Happy Valentine's Day with food

See also

Valentine’s Day food is a fun way to say “I love you” without going overboard on novelty gifts or greeting cards. You can turn your ordinary breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert into a Valentine’s Day gift and the great thing is, food gifts work for all ages. Whether you want to serve a romantic breakfast in bed, give a gift to someone you haven’t known long, brighten the day of a single friend, or tell your kids how much you love them, everybody can enjoy a Valentine’s Day gift of food.

Food gifts are affordable and can be a lot of fun as long as you choose something that looks appealing. Nobody wants leftover macaroni and cheese that you tried to form into the word “love,” but curly cinnamon roll hearts or cookies that look like actual conversation hearts candy are a totally different story. Whether you choose a light breakfast or hearty heart-shaped burgers, there are some really cute ways to say “I love you” with food.
