 Kitchen Valentine’s Day Gifts at Amazon Under forty dollars tout


You can say Valentine’s Day gifts are pretty synonymous with chocolates and flowers, but ask any food lover and they’ll tell you — there’s so much more. That’s great news for you because it opens up a whole world of possibilities when it comes to gifting your partner, gal pals, and any other person you simply love. And if the recipient is a big fan of cooking, we’ve got you covered with the best options to shop at Amazon

Thinking outside the box when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts isn’t hard, you just have to get a little crafty. Unsure where to start? Amazon has an entire Valentine’s Day section filled with on-theme cards, decorations, and more. And of course, that includes gift ideas, too — some we’ve even tested in-house. And the brands are so good. We’re talking fun options from Rabbit, Lodge, Truff, Dash, Nordic Ware, and more with prices starting as low as $10.

A candlelight dinner is so romantic, but it’s even nicer if you’re the one doing the cooking as a Valentine’s Day present. You can enlist these gift ideas as tools for the big night or wrap them up with a bow if your loved one is the designated chef. Either way, the receiver will be very impressed. 

One extremely popular gift idea is this Secura wine opener that unscrews corks automatically with the push of a button. It forgoes the need for a tedious manual corkscrew opener, which can leave bits of cork in the bottle, ultimately ruining the entire thing. All you need to do is remove the foil off the wine bottle, place the Secura on top and watch the cork pop out.

Another fun find is this extremely popular Dash mini waffle maker. It’s an Amazon bestseller and is also a shopping editor-favorite. But for Valentine’s Day, the traditional round waffle just won’t do — on February 14, you’ll need this on-trend option that delivers heart-shaped waffles in a matter of minutes. It doesn’t just make traditional waffles though—you can make truly anything including red velvet waffles, hot sandwiches, hash browns, and cinnamon rolls according to shoppers.

And if your loved one loves hot beverages, but can’t seem to drink them fast enough, you have to get them this coffee mug warmer. It keeps tea, hot chocolate, and lattes piping for up to four hours thanks to its three heat settings. While this doesn’t come with a mug, look at it this way: It’s the perfect accessory for their tried-and-true favorite. This doesn’t come with a mug, so all they’ll need is their own to get started.
