Gluten-Free Valentine’s Day Ideas, Recipes & Party Crafts
Gluten-free on Valentine’s Day? Is it even possible?
Nearly a decade of gluten-free Valentine’s Days has left me 100% convinced that celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and any other medical condition that led you to a gluten-free diet (it was celiac for me) can’t take the sweetness out of Valentine’s Day.
This year, you’ll discover how easy it is. By the time next Valentine’s Day rolls around, you’ll be the one reassuring the gluten-free newbie!
This Go Gluten Freely Valentine’s Day Guide will walk you through the details, from my family’s favorite gluten-free traditions to giftable, gluten-free desserts and craft ideas for your Valentine’s party.

Each of the following recipes is gluten-free, but, as always, it’s important to check your actual ingredients to make sure you select gluten-free products.
There are two ingredients that you’ll see pop up frequently: nuts and chocolate. Here are gluten-free recommendations for both:
Gluten-Free Nuts – While nuts are naturally gluten-free, they are often processed on the same equipment as gluten-containing foods. Nuts.com is a trustworthy source of gluten-free nuts. Be sure to buy specifically from the gluten-free selection of products.
