Fortune Cookie Valentines allow for a bit of spreading of love and good fortune. Valentine’s Day is a day dedicated to celebrating love and affection. It often brings up images of heart-shaped chocolates, romantic dinners, and heartfelt gestures. While the holiday has traditionally been associated with romantic love, it’s also a wonderful time to express appreciation and affection for our friends and loved ones.
One creative way to do so is by crafting personalized Fortune Cookie Valentines. So, today, I’m sharing about fun Fortune Cookie Valentines, along with a free printable download.
Fortune Cookies: A Tasty Tradition
Fortune cookies have long been a favorite treat in Chinese-American cuisine. These crisp, golden cookies are often served as a sweet conclusion to a meal at Chinese restaurants, and they hold a hidden surprise inside – you know, that tiny slip of paper with a fortune or piece of wisdom.
While the origins of the fortune cookie are debated, one thing is certain: they bring joy and excitement to those who crack them open. I always look forward to reading my fortune.
As a matter of fact, I have a small jar full of my fortunes from over the years. One day, I hope to repurpose some of them.
Homemade Fortune cookies in the market? Yes, please. I never really thought about the mass production of fortune cookies. Random, but cool!
Why Fortune Cookie Valentines?
Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to share heartfelt sentiments with friends, family, and colleagues as well. Fortune Cookie Valentines offers a unique and fun way to do just that.
A personalized message tucked inside a homemade fortune cookie can be tailored to express appreciation or love for anyone in your life. Whether it’s a close friend, a family member, or a coworker, a Fortune Cookie Valentine is a thoughtful gesture that will surely bring a smile to their face.
Here are two options to consider when deciding how your Fortune Cookie Valentines will come together.

This option allows you to add custom fortunes. Take some time to write heartfelt messages or quotes you’d like to include in your fortune cookie. Basically, these can be anything from compliments to expressions of gratitude or even inside jokes.
Two: Store-Bought Fortune Cookies Valentines
When time is of the essence, using store-bought fortune cookies for your Valentine’s can be a convenient and fun choice. These ready-made treats still carry the charm of surprise messages inside, making them a quick way to share love and appreciation with friends and loved ones on Valentine’s Day.
Obviously, you’ll need to buy the fortune cookies. They can be purchased from Amazon, a local store, or a Chinese food establishment. Once purchased, place the cookies in a treat bag and add a personal touch by attaching a festive bag topper to the top.
It’s a thoughtful gesture that shows you care, even when you’re short on time.
I’ve created a printable bag topper to make your Fortune Cookie Valentines even more unique. This download features a darling design with the words “Fortunate to Be Your Friend.” You can use this to accompany your cookies.

- After that, attach it to your packaged fortune cookies in the treat bag using a stapler or double-sided tape.
- And gift it! Someone is now fortunate to be your friend (wink-wink).
