I’m famous for last minute everything. From law school applications to preparation of dinners to gift buying or making, I’ve never been the type to have everything done weeks or even days ahead of time.
Some might call me a procrastinator. I prefer to think of myself as one of the “last minute people.” We’re a proud breed, even though some of us occasionally try to reform. Still, dashing around today, I’ll acknowledge that it can get dicey as a holiday approaches and we’re nowhere near ready.
In the spirit of comradeship with my fellow last minute Valentine’s Day gift givers, here are five food-related gift ideas. These do not involve a lavish display of financial prowess or wowing someone with the latest, greatest anything. Call me hokey, but if the gift reflects a true understanding of what brings a smile to your Valentine’s face, then you’ve got a winner.
