Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Cooking Enthusiasts

Updated on December 30, 2007

Does your sweetie love to whip up special treats in the kitchen? Valentine's Day is the perfect day to let the special person in your life know just how much you love and respect his or her hobbies and individual preferences.

Gift Idea #1: Cooking Class

If your sweetie adores nothing more than whipping up special meals in the kitchen, it's likely that he or she will really enjoy a gift of pre-paid tuition to attend a local cooking class. Of course, what will make the gift even better is if you prepay for two seats to the class. What could be more romantic than attending an evening filled with learning how to make gourmet delights with the love of your life?

Gift Idea # 2: Romantic Dinner Out

This gift idea may seem strange at first glance, but pay careful attention to the reasoning before you skim ahead to the next suggestion. Keep in mind that people who enjoy cooking sometimes don't like it so much when it's expected of them, as often happens for special occasion meals.

If you expect your sweetie to prepare meals for ever special occasion that comes along, her or she might come to feel somewhat taken for granted at such times. The last thing you want to do on Valentine's day is allow your sweetie to feel like preparing an elaborate meal for the two of you. Instead, plan a romantic dinner for two at a local restaurant that either holds special sentimental value for the two of you, or is someplace that you have never been to before.

Gift Idea #3: Gourmet Cooking Supplies Basket

True cooking enthusiasts have a real affinity for high quality cooking ingredients and supplies. Most cooking hobbyists would regularly splurge on the best quality spices, extracts, sauce bases, etc. if only their budgets allowed. A lovely basket, or even high quality stock pot or serving dish filled with extravagant, yet useful, cooking supplies is sure to put a smile on the face of anyone who loves cooking.

Gift Idea #4: Wine and Chocolate

Nothing says "Valentine's Day" to a cooking enthusiast better than a gift of wine and chocolate. Sharing a bottle of red wine, paired with decadent, rich, dark chocolate is a romantic gesture that, strangely enough, is also beneficial to your physical heart health (if you believe current medical research).

Any of these Valentine's Day gift ideas is sure to bring a smile to the face of the cooking enthusiast in your life. If you have additional suggestions on how to say "I Love You" to the foodie in your life on February 14, feel free to post them in the comments section below!

PS - You can always add diamonds, gold, and/or flowers! :->
