Steve Harvey let bygones be bygones with his ex-wife this Valentine's Day -- sending her the most ROMANTIC gift in the history of the universe ... a gag order concealed inside a box of chocolates.
His ex Mary Lee Harvey tells TMZ, she was served the Thursday after V-Day "with a box of chocolates, a Valentine's Day card, and a notice saying you are going to be required to come back to court on March 10."
As we first reported, Steve obtained the injunction against Mary earlier this month -- after she posted
a number of incendiary videos about him on the Internet ... accusing him of leaving her homeless, stealing her money, and turning their son against her.
We're guessing the V-Day prank really smoothed things over.
