If you’re thinking of buying your sweetheart something for Valentine’s day, then you’re already considering indulging the long-standing tradition of choosing between stuffed animals, flowers, jewelry, or, yes, candy. While you could always opt for the candy heart, we recommend going a little grander. It’s tradition to spoil your loved one, so don’t hold back.
Here are the top five best Valentine’s Day candy gift ideas to delight your Valentine this year:
1. CollegeBox Valentine’s Day Care Package
Available in 30 and 50 count versions, this Valentine’s Day candy gift is positioned as a care package. That shouldn’t stop you from giving it to your sweetie, but it will also make a great choice for kids away at college or anyone you can’t be near on the romantic day. In addition to Sweet Tarts, chocolate hearts, Hershey’s Kisses, and Airheads, you also get some non-candy snacking options like crackers and cookies. There’s also a little plush dog for added fun.

Featuring some classic throwback candy options, this “time capsule” option has 55 pieces of candy for even the most dedicated sweet tooth. There’s black taffy, candy necklaces, root beer hard candy, and my favorite, Mr. Goodbar. This also includes a note you can personalize with a message.

3. ‘I Love Your Guts, Valentine’ Zombie Candy & Toy Gift Basket
Is your Valentine more of a Halloween fan? If you’ve giving a gift to someone who can’t get behind all the red hearts and stuff, consider this off-beat choice. It comes with a zombie plush teddy bear, a zombie apocalypse gun (of the water pistol variety), and a variety of other zombie-themed toys. All the candy in this basket are zombie-related, too, which should be enough to please anyone who’s not big on Valentine’s Day.
