Stumped For A Valentine’s Gift? We’ve Got You Covered With Some Great Classic Ideas

Here are some of our favorite candies that are only available from roughly the second week of January to February 15th, when they are wonderfully half price! Who cares if you have someone to give to or not, they are delicious. One time I got a Valentine gift of candy from a customer when I worked in fast food and it made my day. Do something special for anyone this holiday, the least expected is always the best.

The Chocolate Rose

Nothing says classy like a balled-up Kleenex shaped hunk of chocolate being wrapped in red foil and presented on a stick.

Red Hots

The little guys are cinnamon-flavored candies that are hard to find 11 months of the year. It’s a sure way to set your love’s mouth on fire! [Bonus: Check out a recipe for Red Hots Cupcakes on Cupcakeblog.com.]

Red Lollipops, preferably heart-shaped, preferably with white writing on them

These are an old standby that used to come attached to Valentines. Most of the year you’d throw a crappy treat like a red lollipop away, but in February, you will probably hold onto it just long enough for your conscience to feel OK about throwing it away. But it’s the thought that counts right?

Heart-Shaped Box of Chocolates

Sure, you can get chocolates all year long, but can you get them in a heart-shaped box? Maybe even get clever and hide little notes under each one, maybe lines to a sappy love poem that would leave them looking forward to the next tasty bite.

Conversation Hearts — the classic Valentine’s Day candy

Conversation Hearts
NECCO

The rest of the year, they are just NECCO wafers, which no one seems to like, but for a few weeks, they are compressed into heart shapes, branded with flirty messages, and we can’t get enough of them! It’s like a Facebook present you can give in real life. They probably don’t want it but everyone’s doing it so why not?
