Valentine’s Day Bouquets That Are Good Enough To Eat

Elizabeth Buxton
·4 min read

Valentine's Day and its annual gifting conundrum of flowers vs. treats are back. But this year, we won't have a last-minute doubt in our minds what the right present should be. Because this year, we're gifting both in the form of one: the edible bouquet.

The double-edged sword of V-Day presents, edible bouquets are just what they sound like — take an artful floral arrangement and insert food in the place of blooms. Some are sweet and flower-shaped, while others are savory novel creations. Imagine everything from bacon blooms to a dozen dipped-donut pops, long-stemmed beef jerky, and Reese's bunches.

Ahead, these literally good-enough-to-eat bouquets and more that will earn you MVV (Most Valuable Valentine) status on February 14.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team, but if you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
