Get in the Kitchen
The kitchen is a natural place for a gentleman like yourself. That's so many of the great chefs in the world are men. Prove how sweet you are by making a delicious dessert. An easy way to pull this off (if you're not a pro by birthright) is buying premade chocolate chip cookie dough and putting it inside the Wilton Non-Stick Heart Cake Pan. Bake that according to its directions and let it cool. Then cover it in icing and M&M'S Valentine's Milk Chocolate Mega Size Cupid's Messages Candy. The result will be the most delicious sustainable gift that will tantalize her taste buds (and probably yours if you're lucky).
