If you're anything like us, you're probably still scratching your head on choosing a Valentine's Day gift. We've already shared our ideas for the perfect date night spots to celebrate Cupid's birthday with a special someone, but now you're covered if you prefer a more traditional gift instead. Below are five romantic and tasty gifts, perfect for you and your date to celebrate the other 364 days of the year.
Via Carota Craft Cocktails - Negroni Set $99
One Classic Negroni and one White Negroni, with two Italian-made lowball glasses.
Is there any better way to celebrate love than with a cocktail? Italian hot spot Via Carota makes it easy and elegant for anyone to look like mixologist of the year with their set of craft cocktails. Bottling the "warmth and relaxed elegance of the beloved restaurant", these cocktails are the perfect addition to any festive occasion.
Caviar Russe - Essential Collection for 1-2 $145.00
50g of Caviar Russe malossol caviar of your choice, house made crèpe blinis, crème fraiche and serving utensils, fork, knife and spoon, all packed together with a signature insulated Caviar Russe Gift Bag.
Aptly named the “Essential Collection”, this set from MICHELIN One Star contemporary restaurant Caviar Russe contains all the necessary basics for the perfect and elegant bite. With seven different options (ranging from Pacific Sturgeon to Caspian Platinum Osetra, to name a few) and nationwide availability, the only thing left to do is figure out who's worthy to join in the celebrations.
Momofuku - Noodle Lover’s Box $49
5 serving packs of Soy & Scallion, Spicy Soy, and Tingly Chili — plus Momofuku chopsticks, all in a limited-edition gift box.
While we'll be dining out this Valentine's Day, we won’t blame you if you prefer to stay in. And for the budding MICHELIN Guide chefs-at-home, Bib Gourmand Momofuku Noodle Bar makes it easy to look like a pro with their noodle lover’s box. Filled with three tantalizing flavors and a pair of chopsticks, these easy to make noodles are the quintessential ingredient to a romantic night in. And with a total of 15 servings, there'll be plenty for later.
Jean-Georges - Valentine's Day Chocolate Boxes $58
Each box of 12 includes two of each flavor: Raspberry Rose, Alfajor, Passion Fruit, Amaretto Caramel, Orange Blossom, Praline Crunch. Each box is custom made to order and non-refundable.
Valentine’s Day and chocolates. Groundbreaking. While the gift isn't anything new, there is chocolate and then there is chocolate. Two Star Jean-Georges's offering falls into the latter with these handmade and organic single-origin made-to-order chocolates.
Daniel Boulud Kitchen - Bake At Home Valentine’s Day Sugar Cookie Kit $85.95
Each kit makes 20 cookies and includes, heart shaped cookie cutter, raw cookie dough (4 lbs.), and royal icing in pastel colors (each approx. 6.5 oz.).
Earn some extra brownie points (ok, they're cookies but we won’t tell if you don't) and bake the night away with a special someone with these bake-at-home sugar cookies from Daniel Boulud Kitchen of MICHELIN Two Star restaurant Daniel.
