It can be a hassle to go out to eat on Valentine’s Day, so why not stay in? Light some candles, set the mood, and order a delicious meal… or the makings for one! Here are some excellent choices for a dinner to share with your sweetheart.

Some options come ready to eat, and some require prep and cook time. Take a look and see which level matching your cooking comfort level, and order away! Some delivery services even offer wine. Don’t forget the flowers, though.

Famous Chef Choices

Chef’d specializes in meals created by renowned chefs, such as Food Network stars and acclaimed nutritionists. There are also vegan, Atkins, Weight Watchers and diabetic-friendly options, and you can choose the level of difficulty, from 45-minute “gourmet” meals to quick 20-minute repasts.

The six Valentine’s Day selections range from $20 for two for Creamy Polenta to $65 for Australian Prime Strip Steak. Dessert is covered: a complimentary red velvet Nothing Bundt Cake is included in this year’s orders.

Date Night Kits

A lot of PeachDish’s meals have a Southern bent, such as red beans and rice,  Tex-Mex black bean and blue corn tortilla soup, or “Comfy Chicken,”  but delivery is available across the continental United States. 

Best of all, no subscription is required (although subscribers do get better pricing and free shipping). For an extra down-home touch, meal ingredients are packaged in reusable organza bags.

Sweetheart's Strip Steak

Meal delivery service HelloFresh has a special meal kit planned for Valentine’s Day. During Valentine’s Day week (Feb. 10-16) they’ll have Sweetheart’s New York Strip Steak with Sweet Potatoes, Brussels Sprouts, and Blood Orange Sauce as a dinner option. 

Even newbies can cook this festive meal! Order a week’s delivery (3 meals is the minimum order) and choose the special Valentine’s dish, as well as two other delectible options.

Pizza My Heart

Steal your beloved’s heart with a heart-shaped pizza pie!

For Valentine’s Day, Hungry Howie’s is serving up heart pizzas ($6.99) and heart-shaped cheesy bread ($6.00). Or go nuts and get both for $12.99! It’s only available on February 13th and 14th so snap up this heart-shaped meal while you can.

Classic Valentine’s Meal for Two

This quality Valentine’s meal can be delivered in an hour or less from FoodKick. 

They have ingredients for Valentine’s Day classic surf and turf — lobster and filet mignon — at the ready. And don’t forget the wine; FoodKick delivers that too.

Postmates is doing a promo with Halo Top Creamery for Valentine’s Day and Single’s Awareness Day (yes, that’s a thing).
