It’s just a few weeks until Valentine’s Day. W’ll be posting some special gift ideas that catch our eye.

First up are these heart-shaped cheesecakes from Harry & David:

  • The New York-style cheesecake sits atop a chocolate cookie crust.
  • It’s topped with a layer of semisweet chocolate and a white chocolate drizzle.
  • A couple can split one of the two 12-ounce cheesecakes for dessert, and the second one for breakfast.
  • Or, freeze the second cheesecake for future nibbling.
