Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating the one (or ones) you love, whether that’s a significant other, friend, parent, child, or even yourself. Gifts of flowers and chocolates are customary, but if you want to go above and beyond, a gift basket is a swoon-worthy treasure chest of sweet surprises that will dazzle any lucky recipient. From chocolate-covered strawberries to sparkling wines to heart-shaped brownies, we’ve collected some of the very best Valentine’s Day gift baskets.
Hickory Farms Love & Blooms Valentine's Day Gift Box
Flowers and hearts are common Valentine's Day motifs, but this gift box from Hickory Farms puts a twist on both. In terms of hearts, this beautifully packaged set has sour peach heart gummies and a big heart-shaped sugar cookie with XOXO written on it in icing. For flowers, the gift set includes a lovely flower-scented candle and an adorable wildflower seed bomb you can plant and grow.
On top of all that, you also get two cupcakes in jars from Wicked Good Cupcakes, which you may recognize from "Shark Tank." The Cupid's Confetti option has vanilla cake and pink frosting with thematically colored sprinkles throughout. The Valentine's Velvet cupcake jar is made with rich red velvet cake with white frosting and has an adorable frosting heart at the top.
Hickory Farms sent a sample to our writer Allison, and she fawned over the presentation. "Everything about it was cute. From the heart-decorated box to the idea of planting wildflowers with a loved one. I'm also a huge sucker for anything red velvet, so I devoured the cupcake in minutes."
Our editor Taylor also received a set, the Perfect Match, which is essentially an upgraded version of the Love & Blooms box, with extras including a box of long matches to light the candle and a bottle of California rosé. (The seed bomb is substituted for a seed pop here, too). Taylor echoed Allison's sentiments about presentation and loved the buttery cookie. The cupcakes, especially the red velvet, were incredible, and both she and her friends ate the peach gummies in one sitting. The wine, on the other hand, is very fruity and sweet, so if you're going for the upgrade, make sure the recipient isn't a fan of drier varietals.

What to Look for in a Valentine’s Day Gift Basket
Part of the fun of opening a gift basket is exploring all of the goodies inside, and a nice variety can elevate a selection from good to great. As an example, some gift baskets like to balance out rich sweets with salty or savory eats, such as cheese and crackers or charcuterie. That said, most Valentine’s Day gift baskets do focus on candies and chocolates, but even then you can find variety. There could be numerous different flavors, various types of candies, or several kinds of fruit dipped in chocolate.
A Valentine’s Day gift is meant to be special, so you probably want to avoid giving your special someone a low-quality or stale gift basket. Keep an eye out for “fresh” or “made to order” in the product descriptions to make sure you’re getting quality treats. Anything “handcrafted” is also a bonus since it adds a special touch.
When it comes to time-sensitive gifts for holidays, pay close attention to shipping information. Look for shipping time estimates, how soon a gift is shipped after the treats are made, delivery time expectations, and any warnings about delays. Some sites will allow you to select a specific delivery date, while others might promise delivery on or a day before February 14th. Be sure to grab and save the tracking number, too.
What should I put in a Valentine’s Day gift basket?
Valentine’s Day has a number of classic treats associated with the romantic holiday. Traditional items can include chocolates, wine, chocolate-covered strawberries or cherries, candies, heart-shaped cookies, or cupcakes. The benefit of a gift basket is that it lends itself to variety, so feel free to also include savory options, such as cured meats, artisan crackers, gourmet cheeses, and various accompaniments to make a nice charcuterie board.
What is a good Valentine’s Day gift?
When people think of Valentine’s Day, they often imagine things like roses, teddy bears, chocolates, wines, and sweets. Those classic gifts are wonderful ideas, but a great gift is thoughtful—it comes from the heart. Look for a gift basket that caters to the recipient’s palate. Do they have a sweet tooth? Do they prefer salty snacks? Are they head-over-heels for a specific flavor, like raspberry? Some even have gifts like flowers or teddy bears, too.
When should I send a Valentine’s Day gift basket?
Valentine’s Day falls on February 14 every year. Most gift basket sellers will have preorder options available so you can purchase a basket beforehand and have it delivered on the holiday. We advise acting sooner rather than later to avoid popular gifts selling out or running into shipping delays.
