While I'm not overly fond of the term foodie, because I think it's overused and ill-defined, I am a lover of food. I look for items that are made from great, organic, and local ingredients. Gift giving for a “foodie” is easy – there's an element of practically and lust associated with food gifts. Okay, maybe lust is a strong word, but if you're a foodie, you'll understand.

Four Affordable Valentine's Day Foodie Gifts

I've picked a few of my favorite and most affordable American made products for a tasteful Valentine's Day gathering for anyone.

Some of the most luscious Valentine gifts are American Made. (via USAlovelist.com)

Sweet and Simple

If you're looking for art in a bottle from a great craft distillery, I suggest OM organic ready-made cocktail. I’ve tried other pre-made concoctions and none of them comes anywhere close to being as great as OM. It’s strong – you can actually tell that there’s vodka in the mix. OM is the first of its kind, boasting a USDA certified organic label and high-quality 30 proof vodka-based cocktail crafted from American grown organic grain. Sweetened with organic agave nectar, OM cocktails contain no preservatives or artificial flavors and are gluten-free. Even the coloring is fruit- and vegetable-based and non-GMO. The Wild Cranberry Orange is a perfect pairing for chocolate. Go ahead, give it a try. Organic Premade Cocktails from OM made in California

Give Her Roses

I think one of the most meaningful trends is locally sourced everything.  I hope it's a trend that's here to stay. If you're looking for a great sweet treat, I'd suggest the Willamette Valley Confectionery's Basket o' Roses Pâte de Fruit. While the company uses traditional European methods to make its pâte de fruit. The fruit is sourced locally from the Willamette Valley in Oregon.

Nuts About You

Who doesn't love nuts? What better way to tell someone you're “nuts about them” than with Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter? {That was over the top. I might be going a bit nutty myself!} Unlike the popular, Nutella, Justin's nut butter starts with nuts as the first ingredient in its butter, making it the best nut butter I’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting. Plan a romantic picnic. You will not be disappointed! All Justin's butters are made in Boulder, Colorado.
