Like many of you, food is my love language and the kitchen truly is the heart of my home. While roses and chocolate are nice Valentine’s Day gifts, I would much rather have a new Kitchen Aid mixer to help me create even more love in my kitchen throughout the entire year.
And I don’t know who needs to hear this, but Valentine’s Day isn’t just about waiting to receive a gift from someone else. It is also about loving yourself and appreciating all of the amazing skills and love you bring into this world. So if you need a new mixer, or covet one of the gifts featured below, you just go ahead and buy that for yourself. Because I think you deserve it.

1. Heart Dinnerware Collection
I love love love this Heart Dinnerware Collection at Williams-Sonoma. While it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, you could really use it all year long. Maybe you don’t need an entirely new set of dinnerware, you could just get the appetizer plates for desserts, snacks, or an afternoon tea party.
2. Cuisinart Hand Mixer
Kristen featured this Cuisinart Hand Mixer in her round-up of gifts inspired by Jennifer Garner’s Pretend Cooking Show this holiday season, and it is one of my very favorite kitchen tools. It’s fantastic for those “smaller” baking projects that don’t require the stand mixer and help make the How to make the perfect whipped cream for Valentine’s Day treats.
3. Red Heart Inlay Double Old Fashioned Glass
4. White Marble Heart Coasters
These White Heart Marble Coasters are also from World Market and add the perfect touch of festive to your table or coffee table while protecting it at the same time.
5. Olivewood Heart Spoon
6. Heart Towels
One can never have too many kitchen towels, and these Heart Towels from Williams Sonoma at Williams Sonoma are made from 100% twill-woven cotton which means they will last more than one day in February.
7. Marble and Brass Heart Spoon Rest
This lovely Marble and Brass Heart Spoon Rest from Williams Sonoma will add a touch of heart-shaped beauty to your kitchen and will help keep the space next to the stove clean all year long.
8. Olivewood Heart Cheese Board
This gorgeous Olivewood Heart Cheeseboard from Williams Sonoma is the perfect prop to create the ultimate Valentine’s Day cheese board. Just please don’t spread butter all over this board. If you must spread things on a board, consider the Marble Heart Cheese Board so that flavors and oils don’t ruin the olivewood.
9. Red Cast Iron Fondue Set
My kids love when I break out the fondue pot, and this Red Cast Iron Fondue Set from Crate&Barrel is perfect for a Valentine’s Day cheese fondue party (which is the best kind of party).
10. Le Creuset L’Amour Soup Pot
This Le Creuset L’Amour Soup Pot is exclusive to Williams Sonoma and is such a beautiful version of the cast iron essential. Maybe there isn’t a need for a new soup pot in the kitchen, there are these individual Le Creuset L’Amour Mini Round Cocottes that are super versatile and so cute.
11. KitchenAid Artisan Series, Matte Dried Rose 5-Quart Stand Mixer
This 5-Quart KitchenAid Mixer in Matte Dried Rose is swoon-worthy, and perhaps the one gift that will lead to all kinds of extra special loving.
12. Be Mine Valentine’s Day Apron
This handmade Be Mine Valentine’s Day Apron says I love you as much as I love the clothes you wear when you are working in the kitchen.
13. Red-Fluted Melamine Batter Bowl
14. Dash Heart Mini Waffle Maker
Personally, I think this Dash Heart Mini Waffle Maker makes a perfect gift for the tweens and teens in your life. It’s super handy for making individual waffles for breakfast, or even a little grilled cheese for an afternoon snack.
15. Harney & Sons Valentine’s Tea
Nothing speaks love more than a warm cup of tea on a cold February day, and this lovely Harney & Sons Valentine’s Tea joins chocolate and rosebuds is a perfect gift for the tea lover in your life.
16. Bean Envy Milk Frother
17. Creamy Little Heart Icon Mug
Skip the commercially produced mugs, and gift your loved one a handmade, wheel-thrown mug like this Creamy Little Heart Icon Mug from Woon Clay Art on Etsy.
18. Slow Burn Candle from Boy Smells
Boy Smells is one of my very favorite candle makers because they smell amazing, and last a long time and the wax is an all-natural formulation that includes no paraffin at all. This Slow Burn candle perfectly captures the scent of smoldering love (and helps cover up the scent of whatever it was your teen left sitting in the sink overnight).
19. Spark Romance in a Box Matchsticks
For a little fun, keep a box of these Spark Romance in a Box Matchsticks in the kitchen to keep things spicy. They are not real matches, but each is printed with a prompt and activities to inspire conversation and connection. Maybe they will spark a little fire that will take things out of the kitchen (if you know what I mean).
