Inspiration for your Valentine’s Day Gifts

Vanessa StoicovFeb 8, '21

Traditional Valentine’s Day gifts often involve dinner at a fancy restaurant, flowers and a box of chocolates – but this year, why not do something a little different. At iPantry, we stock unique, locally made food alternatives and artisanal product lines that are perfect as gifts for your beau – conveniently delivered right to your door.

This Valentine’s Day, we’ve got gifting options to make your life easier and impress your date at the same time. Are you ready to get inspired?

Choose a pre-made gift

Our gift boxes are a great place to start because they give you the best of both worlds: a themed gift plus a range of tasty treats. We all have our own preferences when it comes to food, so gifting a box full of delicious foods is a simple way to say “I think you’re awesome”!

To get you thinking, check out these amazing pre-made gift boxes:

  • iPantry Something Special Box: Featuring Houghnuts, banana bread and a range of other goodies, perfect for that someone special.
  • Brunetti Hamper 2: Includes some of Brunetti’s signature products, like coffee beans, it’s one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for him.
  • iPantry Sweet Tooth Box: Gift donuts, Rocky Road chocolate and more, ideal for any sweet tooth!
  • Brunetti Chocolate Box 12 pc: When it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts for her, you can’t go past this classic box of artisanal chocolates. 

Create a personalised gift

For your nearest and dearest, you can build your own box of personalised food gifts and even add a sweet custom message to let them know the depths of your love. Our gift boxes can be delivered to their home or office, so you can bank on the element of surprise and really make their day! Let’s take a look at a few savoury and sweet items – you can also cater to your beloved’s preferences with gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options.

Savoury gift ideas

Building out a gift box with the right savoury products for your Valentine starts with snacks. We love Genoa Foods Cashews Roasted & Salted 500g and a bag of Serious Popcorn Sea Salt 70g to kick things off (salty snacks are delicious!).

A crowd favorite is always cheese and crackers. We’re big fans of LOKA Italian Cheese & Herb Low Carb Crackers 160g and you can explore our cheese range to find the right cheese for you. But for a great vegan option, check out The Vegan Dairy Persian Feta 225g – it tastes divine on a slice of Noisette Olive Baguette 450g

Pair your savoury finds with a bag of iconic St. Ali Feels Good Organic Espresso Blend 250g Whole Beans or the aromatic Chai Spice Authentic Ground Chai 200g. Your gift box will smell amazing and tickle the fancies of any lover of savoury foods.

Sweet gift ideas

Looking to assemble a variety of Valentine’s Day gifts for a sweet tooth? From classic Italian desserts from Brunetti to light and fluffy donuts from Daniel’s Donuts, plus a range of vegan products and desserts supplied by our restaurant partners – we’ve got your back.

Let’s start with chocolate. Melbourne made with a cult-like following, you might like to add a bar of Pana Organic Sour Cherry & Vanilla 45g into your gift box. We also love this Chocolate Truffle Ball - 4 Pack, especially when it's coupled with a slice of Brunetti Tiramisu.

When it comes to cakes, you can keep it simple with a scrumptious 6 pack of Strawberry Cupcakes. Add in some elegance with some Brunetti Mixed Bigne 4pc or even sneak in a Houghnut Raspberry (Gluten Free, Vegan Doughnut)

You might like to then round out your gift box with some Koko Black Salty Cashew Crunch Milk 250g and Koko Black Roasted Toasted Almonds Milk 100g for that perfect sweet and salty combo.

Struggling to choose? Grab a gift card!

Gift cards are a great option if your partner is picky or you’re having trouble deciding on what to get. You can also add a gift card to any of our boxes so they can treat themselves to more tasty treats in the future.
