They say the way to a woman’s heart is through the stomach, right? Gifts are great, but nothing says “I love you” like taking time out of your day to surprise her with yummy treats! Need some inspiration on where to start your gifting – or your snacking? Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up some Valentine’s Day treats that take little to no effort to get, but will leave your lover amazed at how much thought you put into make this day special.
Fair warning! These Instagrammable treats will have her obsessed with you all day long.
The Bagel Nook never fails to surprise us with their festive breakfast options. Their Valentine’s Day treats are also next-level. This heart-shaped bagel is a great way to start off her day and compliment any gift you give her. If you are rolling on a budget or not in a serious relationship, it’s still a sweet gesture to let her know you still thought about her.
If you’re not local to this bagel shop, no worries! Go to your local bakery or bagel shop to check if they make any Valentine’s Day bagels – and if not, call in advance and ask if they take special request. But make sure to get there nice early, since a lot of these specialty bagels sell out fast.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
We loved this arrangement of chocolate covered strawberries by home-based business owner Daniella Lamothe. You could never go wrong with a beautiful display like this, and almost every super market or bakery will carry their own version. Luckily for you, if you don’t want to splurge you can easily make this at home and customize it to your liking.
Not a fan of chocolate? No problem, these beautiful geometric heart-shaped cookies are a great Valentine’s Day treats to end your romantic dinner with.
Heart-Shaped Chocolate Pizza
The Chocolate Pizza Company has created the sweetest gift imaginable for your sweet-toothed girl. Your words on their heart-shaped chocolate pizza, that is filled with rich milk chocolate or decadent dark chocolate, and blended with homemade English toffee from a local recipe will make this a Valentine’s Day gift to remember.

Cupcake Flower Bouquet
Say goodbye to sending her red roses at work, and get her a bouquet of cupcakes! We all know flowers are beautiful to look at, but we also know that she won’t water them and get much use out of it. Why not surprise her with a bouquet she can look at and eat too! You know that the money spent won’t go to waste and she’ll still get the satisfaction of having flowers delivered to her.
Check for a local Mr. Cupcakes near you and place an order in advance to customize the cupcakes to her favorite flowers. It will surely be a gift she will never forget.

Valentine’s Day Donuts
Dunkin Donuts. Simple, sweet, and accessible; yet it’s always beautifully decorated. You could never go wrong with a box of heart shaped donuts and coffee to keep her morning going.
