Valentines Day Gifts from a*pour toi

My husband and I have been married for 16 years.  At this point, he knows the type of Valentines Day gifts I like to receive.  I do not want black lace, expensive diamonds or exotic weekends at spas.  What I do like for Valentines Day gifts are things that I can EAT.  Gourmet foods, especially sweets, are one of my biggest weaknesses.  Not great for my waste line but some days, fancy sweets are vital to my sanity.  I recently received a wonderful box of gourmet food gifts from a*pour toi and if you are looking for unique Valentines Day gifts, I really recommend you check them out.


Founded on the principle of giving with care, elegance and joy, a*pour toi literally means a*[present] for you.  It was founded by Julie Hasson, a sophisticated Parisienne who has lived in many parts of the world. She is committed to seeking out the finest things to bring pleasure into people’s lives.  As a busy mom, I can honestly say that I appreciate every single moment of pleasure in my very chaotic life!  What is a*pour toi?  Basically, it is a subscription box service that offers a box of gourmet treats every single month.  There are a few different types of boxes and subscriptions to choose from, depending on your budget and the selection you are interested in.

Gourmet Valentines Day Gifts from a*pour toi

valentines day gifts

AMOUR box is designed around the theme of AMOUR, which means LOVE, in tribute of Valentine’s day. A great choice if you are buying Valentines Day gifts for someone who deserves a little pampering!

ELEGANCE box selection change monthly. It’s a beautiful way for you to show your care and nurture your relationship with a monthly top of mind to your recipient by choosing our subscription offer.

GENEROSITY box is a highly generous luxury box for special occasions. Inside are 44 full-sized gourmets biscuits and savory, plus gorgeous French chocolate and some other delicacies, all from American, French and a*pour toi brands.


For my review, I received the Elegance box which was not only filled with delicious treats but it was packaged beautifully!  The box slides open and the contents are packaged in a handy reusable bag.  The box I received contained truffles, white chocolate covered pistachios, melon & muscat Gluten Free biscuits from Les Aristocades, 3 Butter horns, 3 calissons, chocolate vanilla swirl wafers, and chocolate dipped Almondina.


Delicious Valentines Day Gifts

One of the things I love about this subscription service is that a*pour toi really cares about the quality of the ingredients that are included. The look for products that contain only pure ingredients that are full of flavors.  Organic, non-GMO or raw ingredients are chosen as much as possible. They work with both small  and large producers that offer  quality rather than product shelf life.  The quality of the ingredients is definitely obvious when you try these delicious treats. My only wish is that there was more!  My children decided that this package was clearly meant to share so I couldn’t hoard everything for myself!  The butterhorns (shown above) were my all time favorite!  Sweet and tender, full of flavor and just delicious!  Of course, there was not a single item in the box that I didn’t like but that was definitely a favorite!

If you are looking for unique Valentines Day gifts, I recommend you check out a*pour toi.  Anybody who enjoys a decadent and sweet little treat now and then would definitely appreciate this!
