Go ahead and bake those cookies with a little bit of extra love into them why don't you.
If you really want to show how much you love your special someone how about going the extra mile and getting a custom made selfie cookie cutter.

Copypastry has a pretty awesome idea when it comes to their process, you just send them your photos and they hand draw a caricature based on the photos. Then the hand-drawn caricature is made into a 3D model and 3D printed in PLA (handwash only), with average product dimensions of 100 mm x 150 mm x 9 mm. The cookie cutters can ship anywhere from Budapest, Hungary, where they are lovingly made. With pricing starting at $20 for a person or your loving pet to $70 for two love birds, these cookie cutter are definitely something you don't want to miss out on.
Nothing But Chocolate
Back in 2014, Harvey Nichols, a department store in the United Kingdom that sells fashion collections for men and women, fashion accessories, beauty products, wine and food gave shoppers the chance to create 3D chocolate ‘selfies’. You step into their eight-sided 3D scanning booth that is covered with 48 digital SLR cameras and bright light and within seconds a fully rendered 3D model is create to use for the delicious treat
The concept is the result of a collaboration between Rococo Chocolates, the award-winning British luxury chocolate brand, and iMakr, a British 3D printing firm. The idea was for Mother's Day but the same treat applies to Valentine's Day. At the time they were creating these chocolate busts they were selling them for £99($125 US) for six solid chocolate miniature busts and £169($210 US) would buy you 12, pretty expensive for some custom 3D scanning chocolate busts but that was back in 2014 can you imagine the cost of them now that it's 2017?
Let's not forget that they were selling just one 6in fully chocolate statue at an incredible £1,000 ($1,250 US). Surprisingly enough they have orders pouring in from runway models all the way to international celebrities. It’s clear that there is huge potential for other 3D chocolate designs from Mother's creations to edible Valentine’s selfies to Easter designs and lastly the weekend project doers that just love chocolate.
Lollipop, Lollipop, Oh Lolli-Lolli-Lolli!
Candy Mechanics is a start-up company based in London offer a chocolate lollipop modeled off of your head. Barely a year old these chocolate connoisseurs are turning chocolate heads left and right. That's the interesting twist with Candy Mechanics, they create ridiculously awesome stuff using their heads, literally. Creator Sam Part and Ben Redford with chocolatier Will Leigh had a six week trial in a local shop in London and blow everybody's mind with what they could do.
One of the things that we love about Candy Mechanics is that they use the Sense 3D scanner for 3D scanning there faces, it's the perfect reason to use the Sense 3D scanner while also not having to really worry about the depth quality when it comes to 3D scanners. For those that have a Sense 3D scanner or even a DIY 3D scanner this is the perfect weekend treat for Valentine's Day!
