The best Valentine's Day hampers are just the right mix of extravagant and practical - with plenty of wow factor when delivered. Whether you're sending a little something to make your 'Galentine' smile or lavishing love on your one-and-only, these are the best Valentine's Day hampers money can buy.
By now you've probably shopped for the best Valentine's gift for him (opens in new tab) or dropped a few clever hints about the best Valentine's gift for her (opens in new tab). You might even have picked up a few Valentine's gifts for kids (opens in new tab) this year and are thinking about what Valentine's messages (opens in new tab) or Valentine's poems (opens in new tab) you're going to write. But what about spoiling the one you love with the ultimate treat; a Valentine's Day hamper. With any luck, you'll get to samples its delights too. And don't forget your gal pals - treat them to a hamper or something from our pick of the best Galentine's Day gifts.
The best Valentine's hampers aren't necessarily wildly expensive. They're thoughtfully curated to suit the tastes of the lucky recipient. Some people love a decadent hamper stuffed full of luxury chocolates and expensive booze, but others prefer a more practical Valentine's hamper containing choice items for a lazy, romantic breakfast in bed or a selection of tasty after-dinner treats.
'From luxurious chocolates and romantic jewellery to posh biscuits and fine fizz, it's possible to send Valentine's Day hampers containing almost anything these days,' says Goodto.com family editor, Stephanie Lowe. 'To get it right, think about how you want the recipient to feel. Lavished with love? Treat them to a breakfast hamper and offer to serve it to them in bed. Utterly indulged? Go for a hamper of premium treats like Belgian chocolates or a special bottle of fizz. And if you just want to put a smile on someone's face on Valentine's Day, choose a low-key hamper of practical items they really love, like coffee or biscuits. That's sure to let them know you care - without embarrassing them in front of the postie.'

2. Percy Pig Letterbox Gift
Love him or hate him, Percy Pig is practically a national institution. And if the object of your affection is a serious Percy fan, they'll be delighted to receive this wacky gift bag of Percy Pig-themed treats, including Phizzy Pigtails and Percy party sweets alongside a soft character toy of the pig himself - all neatly stashed in an exclusive reusable tote bag.
'When this arrived, I thought it was letterbox flowers - and was so surprised when I discovered the treats inside,' says Goodto.com's Editor, Anna Bailey. 'Although you don’t get the ‘wow factor’ you might have with a traditional hamper, I loved the convenience of the letterbox delivery - and not having to knock on my neighbour's door to retrieve yet another parcel! Every treat was delicious. Any good intentions I had about saving some for later went out of the window. Once this was open I was a goner - my boyfriend’s lucky he got any at all!'

5. Best of Thorntons Hamper
This lovely hamper contains some of the most popular Thorntons treats from their Classic range, including Continental chocolates - with their delish European-inspired flavours - and some satisfyingly chunky Chocolate Blocks in Mint Crunch and Honeycomb Crisp flavours. Everything you need to make a Thorntons fan feel suitably spoiled on Valentine's Day.

6. The Send A Hug Gift Set
This is a really classy Valentine's Day hamper option. It contains a variety of tasty Cartwright & Butler treats including, among other things, the Butter Oat Crumbles, Chocolate Wafer Crispies, and a bottle of Bottega Rosé. It's all presented in a very stylish grey box with a black ribbon and pink 'with love' sleeve.
We think this is incredible value for money for a cute hamper that contains some truly delicious treats. Everything was utterly delicious but the Chocolate Wafer Crispies were to die for and were instantly hoovered up by kids and adults alike. The Butter Oat Crumble biscuits were also exceptional - and very moreish!

If your budget can stretch a little further, these are the hampers that will wow your beloved.
7. Hotel Chocolat Straight from the Heart
This isn't technically a hamper but it's such a perfect pressie for Valentine's Day that we just couldn't leave it out of this roundup. The show-stopping heart-shaped box contains 35 of Hotel Chocolat's most coveted creations. If you want to lavish some love on a true chocolate lover, you could even make up your own hamper with this deluxe box of chocs as a fabulous centrepiece. (Hint hint, husband.)
'I loved the classic presentation of this box - who wouldn’t want to be presented with a giant pink heart-shaped box wrapped up with a bow on Valentine's,' says Goodto.com's Editor, Anna Bailey. 'You can definitely taste the high quality of these chocolates - I just wish there were more. Unlike a lot of chocolate boxes, there is no surprise extra underneath. Fruit centres are my favourites, so I loved the raspberry and banana smoothies. I left about a third of them, as they contained coffee or alcohol flavours, which I try to avoid - though it wasn’t hard to find someone to share those with.'

8. Swizzels Love Hearts Sweet Hamper
Forget fancy hampers full of extravagant, expensive stuff. We'd actually be delighted with this fabulous sweetie Valentine's Day hamper. Items include strawberry bonbons, heart-shaped fruit gummies, Love Hearts (of course) and - our absolute fave - Love Heart dips, proving the way to the heart really is through the stomach!

9. The Taste of Whittard Hamper
Sometimes you want to send something special to someone special on Valentine's Day but without too much flowery fuss. This is what you need. It's not cutesy or overtly love-themed but it's sure to make the recipient feel loved and thought of all day long. There's a tin of full-bodied, flavour-packed Chelsea Breakfast tea and some Chocolate Chip shortbreads for elevensies. Chase that with a luscious cup of Whittard House Blend coffee and at bedtime, round off the day of love together with a soothing mug of delicious Whittard luxury hot chocolate.
This is another show-stopper, according to our reviewer. It all comes luxuriously packaged and the hamper itself is delightfully authentic with proper straps to unfasten - it looks like something you might find filled with chocolate frogs under a bed at Hogwart's! It's a beautiful gift basket that you can re-use when you've scoffed the contents. We especially loved the delicious hot chocolate - now that we've tasted this, no other kind will do!

10. The Luxury
This indulgent Valentine's Day hamper ticks all the boxes if you're looking for a luxe gift for the one you love. It's the perfect mix of savoury and sweet all presented in a beautifully stylish grey willow basket that you can reuse once the treats inside have been scoffed. From Moores Chocolate Chip Biscuits and decadent Chocolate Cake to the Sweet and Salt Yorkshire Popcorn and a bottle of rather lovely Robert & Reeves Prosecco, this has everything the two of you need for the perfect romantic night in.
This was one of our absolute favourite hampers when we put them to the test. The popcorn disappeared in minutes, as did the decadent chocolate cake, but the items that our testers raved about were the hickory smoke seasoned almonds - wow - and the Extra Mature Cheddar and Caramelised Red Onion bites; both things you probably wouldn't pop in your grocery shopping every week but they taste incredible. Ditto the scrumptious Rosemary & Sea Salt Crisps. We were genuinely said when these items were gone.

14. Love Cocoa Valentine's Day Luxury Chocolate Hamper
A premium version of the 'For Her Valentine's Chocolate Gift Box' from Love Cocoa which we mentioned earlier, this luxury Valentine's Day hamper includes some special extras like the Lovingly Dipped Chocolate Caramel Hearts, a beautifully-packaged tube of Double Chocolate Chunk Biscuits and a bottle of Prosecco, amongst other little luxuries.
Our Editor, Anna Bailey, loved the decadence of this hamper. 'It’s so beautifully presented - it definitely has the ‘wow factor’,' she says. 'The packaging is such high quality, it feels like you’re unwrapping a collection of special gifts. For me, the biscuits were the star of the show - deliciously buttery with huge chocolate chunks. And, you can’t go wrong with a bottle of Prosecco and champagne truffles on Valentines!'

15. The 'For My Sweetheart' Hamper
Everyone knows you can't go wrong with a hamper from Fortnum & Mason - the historic food emporium is the Queen's grocer and has provided food for the Royal family for generations, after all. In this hamper of delights you get an extraordinary selection of chocolates, sweet treats and tea, all presented in an absolutely beautiful wicker basket. And the price of a Fortnum’s hamper is always less than the cost of buying its contents and the basket individually.
For major wow factor, this glorious hamper wins overall. The hamper itself is an adorably cute and authentic picnic-style Mini Huntsman Wicker basket with separate sides. Delving through it to find the treats concealed within was truly exciting. Tea lovers will appreciate the Rose Pouchong tea in its pretty pink tin - peek inside for truly beautiful tea leaves! The Chocolate-Covered Raspberries were so good that we had to ask someone to hide them from us after we'd sampled a couple. But the chocolate chip shortbread was our favourite item of all - buttery, crumbly and oh-so-chocolatey!

16. Chocolate & Fizz Hamper
Here's another cracking gift box from Cartwright & Butler. We've included it because you can personalise the sleeve on the packaging to create a memorable Valentine's Day gift - just upload an image and two lines of text to make it extra special. From smooth Ultra Thick Chocolate Salted Caramel biscuits and Belgian Chocolate Fudge to nutty Hazelnut Truffles and Drinking Chocolate - and even a bottle of Prosecco - it's bursting with the essentials for an unforgettable day of love.

If you want to send something r-e-a-l-l-y special to someone special, go for this fabulous gift box from Pierre Marcolini. If you want to lavish your love with a suitably extravagant token of your affection, this is it. It's literally stuffed full of the kinds of chocolates you see in children's storybooks. There's the Five O'Clock Pleasure Tablet which is milk chocolate with nougatine slivers and pieces of caramelized almonds. Honestly, who cares what else is in there? We're already sold.
