Valentine's Day is on the horizon, and no gift says "I love you" quite like food does—especially when said food takes the shape of a heart. Chocolate and flowers are always nice, but why not try and win your lover's heart by thinking outside the box and going the extra mile with treats like pizza and donuts? In the event that you're still on the hunt for some last-minute surprises for your S.O., your crush, or even your galentine(s), these heart-shaped foods have come along year after year, so chances are they'll be available again this year to make the ultimate gift on Valentine's Day.

1. Mrs. Fields' Personalized Cookie Cakes

If you're looking for a way to spread the love this year with a lot more sugar, you can head to Mrs. Fields where customers can purchase a gigantic (and I do mean gigantic) personalized cookie cake for $29.99.

2. Chick-fil-A's Heart-Shaped Box of Nuggets and Minis

Haven't you heard? Chicken nuggets are the new chocolate. If you want to go beyond the box of chocolates this year, head to Chick-fil-A, where you can typically pick up 30 Chick-fil-A Nuggets, 10 Chick-n-Minis, or six Chocolate Chunk Cookies in a heart-shaped container.

3. Papa John's Pizza

In the past, you've been able to get a one-topping heart-shaped Pizza for $11 with the promo code VALENTINE, or a one-topping heart-shaped pizza and a double chocolate chip brownie for just $16 with the promo code BEMINE, at participating locations.

4. Auntie Anne's Pretzels

The pretzel giant has put a twist (pun intended) on its original snack in honor of V-Day in years prior. Customers are typically able to order heart-shaped original and cinnamon sugar pretzels. Best of all, there has been a BOGO deal before, so you and your boo have the chance to get two for the price of one.

5. Dunkin' Donuts

Dunkin' had a selection of Valentine's Day donuts last year. The lineup included heart-shaped Boston Cream and jelly donuts, plus a new Cookie Dough & Brownie Batter Double Filled Donut. Yep, both fillings stuffed inside one giant square donut! It's likely Dunkin' will have something just as good if not better this year since they're always revamping their menu with the seasons.

6. Einstein Bros. Bagels

Previously, guests were able to pre-order heart-shaped bagels by the half-dozen or baker’s dozen, and could enjoy drop-in purchases of a plain, chocolate chip, or cinnamon raisin heart-shaped bagel at participating Einstein Bros. Bagels locations.

7. The Fresh Market

The winner for most original goes to The Fresh Market, which has, in the past, offered shoppers a heart-shaped rib-eye for $14.99 a pound.

8. Heart Pasta

This heart-shaped pasta is available on Amazon Prime, so if you happen to be planning Valentine's dinner last-minute, it works like a charm. For just $13, you can get two packs of the pasta so there will be enough leftovers for everyone you love.

9. Heart Macarons

Costco is selling the cutest box of a heart-shaped Valentine's Day macarons that deserve a place at your Galentine's Day dinner. At $11.99 for 25 macarons, this couldn't be an easier (or more budget-conscious) way to add a little flair to your celebration.

10. Heart Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnabon has had heart-shaped CinnaPacks full of cinnamon rolls for a limited time during the Valentine's Day season and thank goodness for that. Mall bakeries have had a heart pack with nine MiniBon cinnamon rolls for around $14.99 while Pilot Flying J locations have had 16-count BonBites packs for around $9.99. Something for everyone, no matter your cinnamon roll preference!

13. Conversation Heart Cookies

Conversation hearts have been popping in and out of our lives for the past few Valentine's Days, but luckily these sprinkled sugar cookies from Aldi are just as cute and probably taste wayyyy better too.
