Valentine's Day food cook gift guide

Chocolate gets all the attention at Valentine's Day: chocolate fondue, chocolate ganache torte, chocolate champagne truffles ... and we get it! Any one of those homemade sweets would be a decadent way to show your love this holiday.

But if sweets aren't the way to your Valentine's heart, how about a special-something for the kitchen instead?

From a gorgeous enameled cast-iron braiser to a top-of-the-line pepper mill, here are five excellent gifts for the discerning and enthusiastic cook in your life.

  • Set of Tapas Bowls

    These hand-dipped porcelain tapas bowls are not only pretty, they're super practical, too! You can use them for snacks, appetizers, or even just a bowl of ice cream or yogurt.

  • Glass Storage Containers

    These modular, stackable glass food storage containers are a beautiful and durable way to organize the pantry — a major upgrade from plastic containers and bags.
