DIY Valentine’s Day Food Ideas + Giveaway!

I love surprising my loved ones with out-of-the-ordinary gifts that show them how much they mean to me. And there’s no better day to do that than on Valentine’s Day. Last year, I surprised my coworkers with their own Pet Rock Valentine Cards, based on an idea I found on Pinterest.


I love seeing their “pets” on their desk!

Everyone’s rock had their own (made-up) biography inside the card, with a special Valentine’s Day greeting too!

This year I wanted to pass on my love for all things creative and new by sharing some interesting food-related Valentine’s Day ideas I found online. And if you read all the way to the end, there’s even a chance for you to win a fun Valentine’s Day treat for your sweetheart. 


Clockwise from top left:

Long-Stemmed Chocolate Chip Flower Cookies: Chocolate chip cookies are always welcome, but to make them Valentine’s Day special, try presenting them the way you would a bouquet of roses. They’ll treasure them to the very last crumb.

Mini Heart Shape Pizzas: Everyone already loves pizza, so all you need to make a favorite dinner idea extra-special is to make ‘em mini and heart-shaped! Bonus points if you serve them with mini pepperoni hearts too.

Valentine’s Day Popcorn Pops: Red and pink candy help give these popcorn balls their Valentine’s Day look, and when you present them with cute labels – “You make my heart pop!” or “Have a Poppin’ Valentine’s” there’s no way they’re going to be able to resist saying, “Awww…”

Valentine Fruit Tags: I love this healthy Valentine’s Day idea. Just place your fruit of choice in clear or decorated baggies with fun tags like “You are the apple of my eye!”

Very Berry Dessert Nachos: These dessert nachos will help make your Valentine’s Day “berry good.” Put on a movie, snuggle up on the couch, and dig in!

Cupid’s Love Pies: Nothing says love like a heart-shaped pie that they can literally hold in one hand. Plus, they’re stuffed with chocolate hazelnut spread and strawberry jam, which is a lovely combination!

Bacon Bouquet: You read that right. A bouquet made out of bacon “flowers.” Need I say anything else?

Valentine Donut Printables: Package up your favorite store-bought donut holes or make-your-own (with some seasonal sprinkles!) Then, you can and add fun labels to them, like “I donut know what I’d do without you.”

Aren’t these all great ideas? If you want even more Valentine’s Day ideas, check out last year’s blog post or download our FREE eCookbook, Recipes for Romance: 30 Valentine’s Day Desserts and Drink Recipes.
