Valentine's Day can be tricky.

First of all, you have to remember it. Consider this your reminder.

Luckily for you, we've compiled a cheat sheet of great products that are sure to win the hearts of fellow food and drink lovers. Click here to see our picks.

For the figurative thinker, there's Spanish saffron, pound for pound the most expensive flower money can buy. For the literal thinker, there are chocolate truffles flavored with elderflower and tea, produced–surprisingly–in Wisconsin. For the person who has everything, there's caviar powder, an addictive new way to add a dash of luxury to the everyday. And for the one who makes you laugh, there are Black Valentine beans from Napa's Rancho Gordo.

Good luck and godspeed.
