Anyone with a sweet tooth will have a hard time eating just one of Baked by Melissa's delicious mini cupcakes. In our review of these petite treats, we were not only impressed by the moist and flavorful cupcakes themselves, but also the attractive and well-thought-out packaging.

The special Valentine's Day-themed "love box" is no exception (believe me, I just received it in the mail), with standout flavors like strawberry cheesecake, Chocolate Blackout, dulce de leche, marshmallow, and salty chocolate caramel. Baked By Melissa ships nationwide, too, meaning you can surprise friends and family far and wide with this pack of literal heaven.

2. This crunchy, way-too-addicting snack

Equal parts sweet, salty, crunchy, and delectable.

If you're planning for a more low-key date night in on Valentine's Day, you might as well go all-out with the best snacks. In our opinion, Harry & David's Moose Munch Premium Popcorn might just be the most drool-worthy option.

We deemed it "criminally delicious," so you and your S.O. should have no problem chowing your way through a Valentine's Day Bucket of the stuff, which, aside from the milk and dark chocolate Moose Munch, also includes milk chocolate and dark chocolate Moose Munch Bars and a heart-shaped crispy treat.

This basket is seriously so jam-packed with goodies—just imagine how much better it will make your movie night.

3. A gorgeous tin of chocolate-covered nuts

In a nutshell, they're amazing.

Those who can never seem to decide between sweet and salty can get the best of both worlds thanks to the Better Together Valentine Collection from Nuts.com. We're big fans of the site at Reviewed, as we found the assortment of nuts offered to be both fresh and tasty. It's also priced fairly.

This charming tin in particular includes sugar-toasted gold chocolate almond gems, Nutzittle crunch, dark-chocolate-covered pretzels, and butter-toffee mixed nuts—so there's a little something for everyone to go nuts over, pun intended.

4. This candy set that will make you want to pucker up

Everyone deserves a little sugar on Valentine's Day.

Luxury candy brand Sugarfina can always be counted on to deliver the most perfect holiday-themed sweets.

This Valentine's Day, for instance, the brand features Sugar Lips, aka soft and chewy gummies in fun, fruity flavors that are shaped like a kiss. If this box doesn't say "kiss me," we don't know what will.

5. These heart-shaped, frosted cookies

Just like grandma used to make.

Baked goods are the way to most people's hearts, right? Here's a little secret though—they don't have to be homemade to taste delicious. Cheryl's is a cookie delivery service offering an extensive collection of pre-packaged, made-from-scratch cookies that we found really do taste as good as they look.

Soft, chewy, and flavorful, these cookies might just be on par with Grandma's, if you ask us. This set of Heart-Shaped Cutout Cookies appear particularly scrumptious with their red and pink buttercream frosting, and QVC shoppers tend to agree, with one buyer noting, "Everyone seemed to love them and commented the frosting was just the right sweetness."
