Whether you’re single or taken, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to spread a little extra love. And the best way to do that? Send your friends, family or significant other a sweet Valentine’s Day treat that shows how much you really care.
Whether it’s cookies, mini cupcakes, or the classic box of chocolates, you can’t go wrong gifting someone a sweet snack. Keep in mind, if you’re sending these treats rather than gifting them in person, you’ll want to do a bit of planning ahead.
These days, the shipping process is taking longer. For any procrastinators out there, you can always send food — whether it’s dinner, dessert or drinks — via food delivery apps. You can send same-day celebratory eats from GrubHub, Postmates, Shipt and more.
But if you have the time to plan, these are some of the best Valentine’s Day treats to send to your loved ones.
1. Milk Bar
There are many sweet options at Milk Bar for making someone feel special, from cookies and truffles to cakes and pie. Founder Christina Tosi started Milk Bar with her original Milk Bar Pie with an ooey-gooey center encased in a seriously delicious oat crust. Send your friend a pie, or try one of the bake shop’s Valentine’s Day treats like a red velvet cake, red velvet cake truffles or a combination of the two.
Baked by Melissa makes the perfect, bite-sized cupcakes in delicious flavors. For a special Valentine’s Day surprise, the bakery offers packs of three, six, 25 and 50 cupcakes. The cupcake packs include classic red velvet cupcakes mixed with seasonal flavors like strawberry cheesecake, chocolate blackout, dulce de leche, marshmallow and salty chocolate caramel.
3. Mrs. Fields
Send your loved one a classic heart-shaped cookie cake with a special message. If they’re not one for giant cookies covered in frosting (weird, but OK), you can also send special Valentine’s Day gift sets of cookies, brownie bites and more.
Chocolate lovers will be excited about any gift you send from Godiva. Some good Valentine’s Day options include chocolate-covered strawberries, assorted chocolates in a heart-shaped box, cherry cordials or a gift box of dark chocolate truffles with a soft Godiva throw blanket.
For the classic candy lover, Dylan’s Candy Bar has it all. For Valentine’s Day, check out its tackle boxes filled with an assortment of gummy, sour, salty and chocolate candies. If you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day, the Candy Is A Girl’s Best Friend Bucket is the perfect gift.
If you’re looking for beautiful sugar cookies to send someone, Cookies by Design is your spot. Choose from a selection of special Valentine’s Day gifts like a cookie bouquet that resemble conversation hearts or a box of colorful mini cookies. If you’re a procrastinator, the company also offers same-day gifts for sending at the last minute.
6. JARS by Dani
These aren’t your ordinary cakes. JARS by Dani cakes are packed into a jar with icing and toppings for eating with a spoon. It’s less mess with lots of flavor. The jars ship nationwide and come in flavors like fudge brownie, cake batter, cookie dough, strawberry shortcake and more.
