Saying I Love You With Valentine Cookies

(Source: Michele Bery)

Valentine’s Day is a day of love – a day set aside to tell the people around us how much we care. Be it a spouse, a friend, or a parent, we show our loved ones how much they mean to us by delivering them with sentimental cards, flowers, candy, and gifts. It is the one day of the year when all out romanticism – in all its forms – is expected and accepted. When it comes to Valentine’s Day we all seem to have our own ways of celebrating. For some that means a special dinner at a restaurant. For others, it means tickets to a show. And for still others, it means a special Valentine’s Day treat that we wait for all year long. Valentine cookies are here just prior to and on February 14th – and gone the day after. So for many, buying or making these sweet treats are part of their celebration of love.

Valentine cookies come in all shapes, sizes, and flavors. You can simply head to your local grocery market where you’ll surely find cookies of all kinds packaged and ready to be bought. This is a perfect idea for those classroom parties for which you’ve been asked to supply treats. Most often these are simple sugar cookies decorated with all manner of Valentine decorations – from frosting to sprinkles. This certainly makes any parent’s job easier; you can just pick up a couple of trays of Valentine cookies and you’re on your way with cookies that will surely please every picky eater.

Of course the bakery is another place to find your Valentine cookies. Here you’re likely to find a more high-end cookie with better quality ingredients. If you are presenting the Valentine cookies as a gift – or bringing them to someone’s home – this is a great place to get them. The bakery can wrap the cookies in a tray or box them in beautiful wrapping. Either way you’re giving a lovely – and sweet – gift.

There are even online resources where you can find unique and creative Valentines Day cookies that you can box and ship to whomever you choose. Some companies will even do personalized messages on large Valentine cookies – from ‘I Love You’ to ‘Will You Marry Me?’. This is a wonderful personal gift for the cookie lover in your life.

Valentines Day cookies are another sweet way to let someone know you care. No matter what kind of cookies you choose, it is guaranteed that the person to whom you give them will be thrilled with such a gift.
