How to Make a Gift Basket for Valentine’s Day

Whether you’re a new couple or have been together for years, getting your romantic partner a gift for Valentine’s Day can be quite a challenge, but not buying one can be close to fatal, in some cases.

Making a Valentine’s Day gift basket shows the recipient that you thought of them and devoted time to create something special. Normally reserved for lovers, Valentine’s Day gift baskets can also be sent to family members and platonic friends. It is, after all, a day of love, so why not celebrate all forms of it? If you are struggling to find inspiration (remember: Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!), check out these Valentine’s Day gift basket ideas!

What Do You Put in a Romantic Gift Basket?

Time to get creative! There are various signature Valentine’s Day items that can make up your romantic gift basket. You just need to know what the recipient likes to put together the ideal gift basket. 

Candy and/or Chocolate

Some people love only candy, only chocolate, or both. You may also find that your partner prefers some brands over others. Can’t remember which ones? You can phone a friend or family member to get this information, but make sure to swear them to secrecy.

Boodles of Baskets offers Valentine’s Day gift baskets that contain nut-free items, allowing people with allergies to participate in the celebration of love. Cupid’s Bounty lets you show your partner that you’re thinking of them. It includes Fundip, Skittles, Nerds, Jelly Belly jelly beans, an Aero bar, a Mars bar, and Gobstoppers candies presented in a grab-and-go tote.


There are lots of other options out there, such as edible arrangements of fruits and wine gift baskets.

Depending on the fruits they love to eat, you can sit the entire fruit, like a pineapple, in the basket or cut the fruit into perfectly shaped cubes, placing them in a decorative container in the basket. 

Valentine wine gift baskets are another idea: include wine with fresh grapes and various cheeses. Wrap the entire basket in cling film or saran wrap to keep it fresh. Crisis averted!

Stuffed Animals

Does your partner love stuffed animals? Are they a collector? This can be a nice addition to your gift basket, promising to melt their heart when they receive it. 

Our Valentine Sending Love triple-tier gift tower comes with an 8” cuddly red and white holding a heart to wish you “Happy Valentine’s Day.” Enjoy the delights inside the tower, including cocoa dusted chocolate truffles, white chocolate shortbread, Laura Secord fudge, and Swedish Berries.

Extra Valentine’s Day Basket Gift Ideas

With your gift basket of snacks all done, you can have other items accompany it. Some couples like to present several gifts to their partner throughout the course of the day.


Red roses are a staple of Valentine’s Day, but you can also opt for red carnations and other red or pink flowers. Some people will go outside of convention and choose white, purple, or blue flowers. Remember: Knowing your partner’s allergies is vital.


There’s something about balloons that makes everyone get into the celebration spirit. If your partner is outgoing, include several balloons to show the world how much in love with them you are. If your partner is an introvert, one balloon with the Valentine’s Day gift basket will be enough to show your love for them without causing embarrassment. 

Choose a Valentine Delight from Boodles that includes a large 15″ (sitting) white Valentine bear with a Happy Valentine’s Day sash, a box of cocoa dusted truffles and a helium filled heart balloon..

Don’t forget to wrap the basket with Valentine’s Day paper, red or pink ribbons, and bows. You can also add a heartfelt message or poem when presenting the gift basket.
