Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Her: French Macarons


I first fell in love with these beautiful French cookies at a boutique chocolate shop inside Rockefeller Center in New York City. Long before then I had a little obsession with how beautiful macarons are, and when I bit into the light, crispy shell and gooey center, I was a total goner. These French treats tend to come in beautiful pastel shades, so they're perfect to give to your Valentine, a daughter, or gal pal this holiday. Some of these are obviously best for gift giving to pals or daughters. Seriously dudes, don't come crying to me if you're dumb enough to give your wife tea towels or stationary for Valentine's Day, unless of course it's paired with a huge box of actual macarons.

These French cookies can be on the pricey side, but a great option to give a friend or relative a sweet little treat is The Memory of Paris Box of 6 by Leilalove Macarons. It has all 5-star reviews and is currently on sale at 25% off, marked down from $32.00 to $24.00. For something a little more substantial (for your special someone), give a larger assortment of macarons, like the 16-count box that comes with eight flavors in a beautiful gift box. If you need a gluten-free option, try these LeilaLove Macarons 10 Quantities 8 Flavors. These are all made fresh to order and have great customer reviews regarding shipping, presentation, and taste; any girl would be happy to get these on Valentine's Day.

Due to their huge rise in popularity in the US the last few years, macarons are not just for eating anymore. You can find cute gift items in the shape of a macaron, art and home goods printed with the cookie, and even macaron-scented beauty products.
