    27 Best Chocolate Gifts For Valentine's Day

    Chocolate and flowers are a classic Valentine's pairing but rose petals taste awful and the thorns can scratch your beloved's throat. Stick to these chocolatey prezzies instead.

    1. Hot chocolate with heart-y marshmallows to inspire cozy fireside snuggles after you've stirred them into a hot cup of milk, be it soy, almond, rice, get the idea.

    2. Chocolate peanut butter cups from Belgium for a sweet taste of a European vacation you can do from the comfort of your garage.

    3. An assortment of exotic heart-shaped bonbons to introduce your loved one's palate to novel taste combinations — like yuzu and hibiscus — Trojan horse-style.

    4. A chocolate and a book subscription to remind someone how much you love them on Valentine's and every month — or at least that they should read more.

    5. A chocolate and a ritual pack for that special someone in your life who needs more self-love (i.e., nearly everyone).

    6. A chocolate "kiss" to put your gifting money where your mouth is. Or is it the other way around?

    9. A "Choco-lot of Love" 10-bar pack that sets the bar for the chocolate-lover in your love life. Bar none!

    10. Chocolate chip cookies that swallowed smaller sandwich cookies for mouthfuls of yum more complex than the relationship-building exercises your couples' therapist recommended.

    11. A dozen solid milk chocolate roses for two traditional Valentine's Day gifts mashed into one edible bouquet. (But, again, do not eat the stems.)

    12. A single-origin dark chocolate bar to gift the essence of chocolate to your essential person.

    13. A turtle brookie which — you're confused. Let us explain: A brookie is a hybrid cookie-brownie. The turtle brookie is made with classic turtle ingredients, i.e., pecans, caramel, and chocolate. Of course, these don't look like turtles the way the original candies do, but that's what makes you special — or at least what makes these Valentine's Day chocolate gifts special.

    14. A chocolate bar that's even good for you, especially if you have hair, skin, or nails. These sugar- and dairy-free bars of free-trade dark chocolate contain pearl collagen and Rhodiola to help your body combat stress — like the stress of not having a Valentine's Day gift ready on Feb. 14.

    15. Double chocolate espresso cookies for a buzz-y Valentine's treat that will keep you up. All. Night. Long.

    21. A heart-shaped chocolate pizza with a mallet to metaphorically and literally break a heart. Cathartic if you're suffering your own broken heart or just really hate large novelty baked goods.

    22. A box of chocolates for someone to inevitably reference that classic Forrest Gump line, "He got a daddy named Forrest, too?"

    24. Cleanse-approved chocolate, in case you weren't able to get to it in January.
