What better way to say "I love you" than with the gift of breadsticks?

Forget the flowers and chocolates. Hudson Valley lovers now have a new way to share their true feelings this Valentine's Day. The Olive Garden is offering up bouquets of their legendary breadsticks, and we can't think of anything more romantic.

You can visit any local Olive Garden, pick up an order of breadsticks and tastefully arrange them in a printable bouquet wrapper available for free online. The wrappers have several messages on them like "Love at First Bite," or "Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue, Here's a Bouquet of Breadsticks I Made For You." Our favorite has the words "My Love For You is Never Ending" imprinted across them. I mean, who wouldn't be swept off their feet by someone who compares their love to the endless amount of breadsticks available at Olive Garden?

You can download the wrappers and get your breadsticks at the Olive Garden on Route 9 in Poughkeepsie, North Galleria Drive in Middletown or Kings Mall Court in Kingston.
