Whether you’re single or taken, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to spread a little extra love. And the best way to do that? Send your significant other, friends or family a sweet Valentine’s Day treat that shows how much you really care.

Whether it’s cookies, mini cupcakes or the classic box of chocolates, you can’t go wrong with gifting someone a sweet snack. Keep in mind that if you’re sending these treats rather than gifting them in person, you’ll want to do a bit of planning ahead.

These days, the shipping process is taking longer. For any procrastinators out there, you can always send food — whether it’s dinner, dessert or drinks — via food delivery apps. You can send same-day celebratory eats from GrubHub, Postmates, Instacart and more.

But if you have the time to plan, these are some of the best Valentine’s Day treats to send to your loved ones.
