Looking for a romantic, nut free Valentine’s Day gift to give your nut-allergic special someone? Keep reading.
When your valentine is allergic to peanuts or tree nuts, picking up a regular set of boxed chocolates at your local grocery store is a BIG no-no. Many commercial boxed chocolates will include nuts as an ingredient inside their recipe. Which will make it hard to find the exact product you’re looking for.
But even worse, a product that omits nuts could lead to a false sense of security as it isn’t automatically safe. Even if a product omits peanuts and tree nuts from its recipe, you could unknowingly purchase something that could induce an allergic reaction from cross-contamination if the product in question has been made in a facility that processes other products that include nuts, or if that company uses shared conveyor belts in their processing factory.
Unknowingly purchasing the wrong thing and making a mistake can cause your Valentine to have a severe allergic reaction, as food allergies can often be severe, which is the absolute last thing you want to happen when you’re trying to plan something special for the person you love. Don’t know where to begin? It’s okay. It’s serious stuff, but don’t get overwhelmed. We’ll. walk you through it.
These Valentine’s Day gifts ideas are all certified nut free, and will offer safe ideas for your favorite nut free sweetie. But, it’s important that we still give you a disclaimer. Please check all labels on the respective websites regarding allergen information before serving it to a guest.

Summary for These Nut Free Valentine’s Day Gifts
I do my best to provide our readers with product recommendations they can trust, but checking in person is still an important step that can’t be skipped when dealing with severe food allergies, as over time companies could change their manufacturing policies without notification. This can be verified easily by referencing their ingredient labels as these companies should include a “nut free,” or “made in a dedicated nut free facility” label on their products.
The extra effort you’re putting towards finding your nut-allergic special someone the perfect nut free Valentine’s Day gift will show. Your nut-allergic valentine will probably feel extra loved that you’ve put some time aside to read this article to ensure the avoidance of their offending allergen. When giving any of these items as gifts, it might be a good idea to hold on to the wrapper or the box it comes in so if your valentine has any questions they can read the label and assess it on their own.
