Do you have a “kahit ano” partner? The one who says “kahit ano” when asked about the things they want? The one who would appreciate whatever you give them, as long as it’s sent with love? 

While people like such are extremely lovable and charming, finding a gift for them is no easy feat. Of course, you’d want to make sure it would put a genuine smile on their face. 

Valentine’s Day is coming up. Do you have a gift yet? If you’re still on the hunt for a thoughtful present for your significant other, remember that you can never go wrong with food. Here are some ideas that might help.

Let's start with this cake from Patisserie Le Choux-Colat. Who wouldn't love it? Just look at its eye-catching details! This limited edition offering is “handcrafted to perfection”—from the edible white chocolate rose to chocolate flavors and textures that are highlighted in its entremet cake. 

Speaking of cake, Butternut MNL’s Cupid’s Strawberry Chantilly Crème Cake (P390/P1,950) gives off Valentine’s feels from the inside out. We’re talking layers of delicious, milky sponge that’s very much like tres leches, decked out in perfectly balanced berry icing, and then topped with lots of berries and flowers, making it perfect for the occasion.

Is your loved one into crepe cakes? You can never go wrong with Paper Moon Café. Its Valentine's offerings include the guava Mille crepe in medium (P1,500) and large (P2,750) as well as guava cheese tarts (P450/box of three). The best part? If you opt for one of its Guava creations on the menu, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Assumption Mission Schools and communities across the country.

If your partner doesn’t have a sweet tooth, but loves Jap food, get them a sushi package from Sushi Nori instead. You may opt for its sushi rose cake (P1,599) that has seven salmon roses, oboro, tamago, Japanese mayo, tanoki, kani, and teriyaki sauce or its sushi heart platter (P1,399) with 30 pieces of California sushi rolls.

Thinking of something romantic and fancy for the foodie in your life? Go for Meatropolis MNL’s charcuterie bouquet (P1,899) that comes with cold cuts, cheese, fresh fruits, dried fruits, olives, crackers, assorted nuts, and a bottle of wine. 

How about a present that can add excitement to their favorite food items? The TRUFF Variety Pack (P3,500) comes with original, hotter, and white truffle hot sauce that can spice things up—and easily hit the spot, depending on their desired heat levels. 

Express your love for your significant other with Sebastian’s Ice Cream. Surprise them with the “Matinong Boyfriend” flavor (with fresh banana slices dipped in Nutella, Nutella fudge, banana ice cream, and crispy banana chips) or the “Matinong Girlfriend” variant (with vanilla malt ice cream, peanut butter ribbon, chocolate dipped peanut butter-filled pretzels, and gooey fudge ribbon). 

Krispy Kreme’s Dreamy Valentine’s Collection could leave your partner not only with a happy tummy, but also a happy heart. Available only until Feb. 14 for P59 per piece, it has three variants designed for the time of love and romance: strawberries & kreme heart, blueberries & kreme heart, and white chocolate & almonds heart. 

Does your loved one's favorite pick-me-up involve milk tea and dark chocolate? They will absolutely love Macao Imperial Tea's collaboration with Auro Chocolate: The Auro Series. You can choose among three variants: Auro Hot Dark Chocolate, Auro Iced Dark Chocolate, and Cream Cheese Auro Dark Chocolate.

Is your Valentine a big fan of FRIENDS? Go for Dough-Nagi's You're My Lobster gift set (P350), which comes with an adorable lobster keychain and a heart-shaped tartlet inspired by Monica's "Mockolate." This offering, however, is "made of premium Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate ganache filling with buttery graham cracker crust."
