Valentines Gift Ideas for the Home Cook

Sharing is caring!

Today’ I am sharing some fun Valentine’s Gift Ideas for your loved one, friends or relatives that love to entertain or cook. These are items I have enjoyed personally or have purchased for others.  Even if you do not need to give someone a gift, these items are fun to use for serving and cooking just to enjoy the season. 

We have more suggestions in our gift guide for home chefs.

Good Morning Friends! Can you believe that next week is Valentine’s Day already? Today I am sharing some fun gift ideas for that person in your life that loves to cook or bake.

These are also fun gifts to buy yourself if you are the one in the family I am talking about. I often buy a piece of serverware or dinnerware if it is something I can use often. I am all about celebrating the Valentine’s Day season with heart-shaped items and pink food, just for fun.

Valentine Gift Ideas – for the person who Entertains or Loves to Cook

Heart candy bowl

Heart-Shaped Candy Bowls

These little heart ramekins are perfect for holding candies or nuts on a table. I like to use them as part of my tiered-tray decor.

Heart Waffle Iron

This non-stick waffle maker will make 4 adorable heart-shaped waffles for a sweet presentation on your plate. You’ll know when the waffles are ready by the handy indicator light. This waffle maker stores easily with a vertical stand-up storage profile. 

heart baking pan

Heart-Shaped Pan

Perfect for baking a small cake or brownies, this Heart-shaped baking pan is adorable. But I also like this small heart pan to use year-round too! Perfect for Brownies, muffins or rice-Krispie treats. 

Personalized Cutting Board
Surprise your valentine with this personalized bamboo cutting board. Customize it with your choice of size, design and name. Perfect for use as a cutting board or as a serving platter for cheese, sushi, breads, or pizza.

Le creuset small pot


Le Creuset Small Pot

If your valentine loves quality enameled stoneware, consider this mini heart-shaped cocotte, perfect for single-serve desserts or casseroles. It is also oven, freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe. Available in your choice of colors and perfect for dinner for two. 

Hershey’s Kisses Chocolate Salt and Pepper Shaker Set
For the person who appreciates whimsy, this adorable set of salt and pepper shakers would make an excellent gift. Shaped like the iconic Hershey’s kisses chocolate candy, this set mimics their classic silver-toned foil look, complete with a “tag” on the top. Cute!


fondue set

Cuisinart Electric Fondue Maker

This brushed stainless steel fondue set makes it easy to create chocolate, cheese, oil or broth dipping ingredients for a wide range of recipes. It comes with a base stand, bowl, temperature probe, 8 fondue forks, and a fork rack.
They have updated the style a bit from the one in my photo.

Quick Marinator

Thanks to its vacuum sealing process, your valentine will be able to quickly marinate ingredients on the fly. Perfect for those nights when you’re in a rush to get something tasty on the table. This marinator is great for grilling and is BPA-free.

Love You Most Kitchen Apron

Let your valentine know how much you love them and their efforts in the kitchen with this poly-cotton blend apron. This red, white, pink and black apron features a sweet romantic theme of love with hearts, a tree, a bicycle and flowers,

I like the small heart shaped bowls. You can use those for so many other things if you don't cook a lot. Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty

Some lovely ideas here. I love Le Crueset ovenware. But my favourite are the heart ramekins!

CUTE! I love the heart waffler best because heart shaped food is top-notch, and breakfast is my favorite meal. Cassidy is a bit of a home cook and would certainly enjoy at least most of these.
