Best Valentine’s Day meal kits 2024: 8 romantic meals to share at home

Normally, the ultimate trick up your sleeve come Valentine’s Day would be to have secured a table at one of the UK’s best restaurants. But for any last-minute bookers out there, or even couples who prefer the comfort of their own home come the 14 February, our round-up of the best Valentine’s meal delivery kits to buy in 2024 is the next best thing.

These cleverly created Valentine’s meal boxes take all the pressure off when it comes to your culinary offering and guarantee to help woo that special person. These are a lifesaver for those not blessed with cookery talents or just wanting to concentrate on the other lovey-dovey touches such as over the top table décor, heartfelt poem-writing or big gesture gift-sourcing.


The best Valentine’s Day meal kits are carefully designed to sweep someone off their feet, so you can expect some pretty impressive results. In most cases, we found three or more courses included in each kit, with some spreads hiding little extra treats like chocolates or even bottles of bubbly to set the mood. A handful of these Valentine’s deliveries are more like a takeaway – bringing a ready-made hot meal to your door – while others are in DIY format, where they just need heating and assembling. You’ll also find a tapas date night hamper and a gorgeous afternoon tea box, with something for every mood and preference.

While traditionally Valentine’s Day is of course for lovers, when it comes to enjoying delicious food, we say that anything goes. Fancy treating yourself and having leftovers for tomorrow? We’re backing you. Or maybe you want to send one of your best buds a lovely gift? You go for it. What we’re trying to say is that these delicious dinners shouldn’t be reserved only for those in the throes of romantic love. You do you.

These are the best valentine’s meal kits we’ve found so far for 2024, but we'll keep you updated here with all the latest meal kits as they become available.
