Not Sure What To Make on Valentine’s Day? Let These Meal Kits Help

Brittany Loggins Feb 2 , 2021

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and we think it goes without saying that no one wants to celebrate the romantic holiday cooking any of the same meals they’ve had on rotation for the last year.

If you’re looking to switch up your cooking repertoire and want a fun activity for you and your significant other, friends or just yourself this Valentine’s Day, these meal kits have you covered. No matter what you have a taste for, there’s something on these menus that will leave your mouth watering in anticipation of an absolutely delicious meal.


Blue Apron is great at putting together delicious meals with fresh ingredients, and we love that you always feel like you’re trying something new. For their Valentine’s Day menu, they’re allowing you to choose between two servings of a delicious scallop and mushroom risotto or four servings of a scallop and mushroom pasta. The two piece meal comes with chocolate-pistachio truffles, and the four piece comes with mixed nut and chocolate truffles. They are even offering delicious wine pairings!

$9.99 per serving 

HelloFresh is offering a full three-course meal as part of their Valentine’s Day menu. It will include a delicious bruschetta chicken entree, a honey ricotta crostini appetizer and a chocolate lava cake for dessert. All will be ready in just 45 minutes, so don’t worry about spending a lot of time on meal prep or planning.


To call this meal a treat would be the ultimate understatement. It includes a well-marbled steak of your choice as well as a choice of succulent lobster tail halves fresh from Maine, shrimp or salmon. Don’t worry, they didn’t sleep on the side dishes, either. The meal comes with a choice of scalloped potatoes, stuffed baked potatoes, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, creamed corn, spinach or green beans. You can also choose between a raspberry cheesecake (in the shape of a heart, of course!), chocolate souffles or caramel apple tartlets.


If seafood is the way to your heart, look no further than this delicious sampler box from Fulton Fish Market. It includes options like Kvaroy Arctic salmon, dry sea scallops, fresh white gulf shrimp, four dozen Blue Point Oysters, four dozen live littleneck clams and two pounds of frozen cooked cocktail shrimp.


If your idea of a perfect dinner looks like a well-crafted cheeseboard, Curdbox is for you. It includes three artisan cheeses, three specialty food pairings, an accompanying Spotify playlist, an episode of an accompanying podcast and a pairing card for those looking for wines. It feeds two for dinner or six-to-eight people as an appetizer.


In the mood for a salmon-focused meal? This Vital Choice sampler is your best bet. It includes two 6-ounce, skin-on king salmon filets, two 6-ounce silver salmon skin-on filets and two 6-ounce sockeye salmon skinless, boneless filets. Whichever you choose, make sure to top your fish with the company’s signature salmon seasoning to ensure a delicious meal.
