Surprise and impress your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day with an extra special present. Instead of the usual box of gourmet chocolates for Valentine’s, send your love a unique selection of traditional Middle Eastern sweets. These delicious pastries are refreshingly different from traditional Valentine’s gifts and can make a nice Valentine’s present for both men and women.
Baklavas are delicate Middle Eastern sweets consisted of healthy nuts, honey and other wholesome ingredients. A perfect Valentine’s present for him or her, who loves and appreciates unusual gift ideas. Some types of baklavas that can be sent for Valentine’s are:
Bird Nest – a beautiful baklava made with multiple layers of paper thin phyllo dough and baked until crispy golden. The sheets form a half blossoming flower-nest shape and the center is filled with whole nuts, sweetened to perfection.
Mini Rose – true to its romantic name, mini rose baklavas have seemingly countless petals of golden, fragile phyllo dough, layered with a variety of nuts. A red rose and a box of mini rose baklavas will be both a romantic Valentine’s gift and show your creativeness.
Ballorieh – imagine a square shaped, thick, soft pastry, with delicious stripped dough on the outside and a rich chopped nuts filling on the inside. If you are looking for a quick and easy Valentine’s dessert, a box of ballorieh can certainly be that.
