You might know their favorite candy bar or how they take their hot cocoa, but if you really want to impress your Valentine this year, then you'll need to step it up a little. Our advice? Save the classics for another occasion and surprise your chocolate lover with something completely unexpected. Think molten chocolate lava cakes, breakable chocolate hearts, chocolate truffles painted like works of art, etc. In fact, we've put together an entire list of the best gift ideas for chocolate lovers, including options for sweethearts with dietary restrictions.

Williams Sonoma

Treat your chocolate lover like true royalty by presenting them with a Bridgerton-inspired truffle tray. The delicate confections come hand-painted and served on an attractive (and entirely edible) gold platter. We're confident that even Lady Whistledown would approve of the scandalously delicious flavor combinations, like Chocolate Raspberry Ganache and Peppered Brie and Fig Jam.


Why settle for one sweet when you could spoil your chocolate lover with all of the options? (From a legendary pastry chef, no less!) Crafted and curated by James Beard Award winner Joanne Chang, this "Chocolate Champion" box features bestsellers from her very own Flour Bakery + Cafe. Think rich chocolate brownies, butter pecan blondies, rye double chocolate cookies and crunchy buttery toffee.

Harry & David

There's something deeply satisfying about breaking hearts and devouring chocolate. Get your Valentine in on the fun by supplying them with a handcrafted, hollow heart box of their very own. This "Break a Heart" set from Harry & David is our top pick because it includes six desserts decorated with edible glitter and filled with Belgian chocolate chips and chocolate candies. You can find even more breakable chocolate hearts down below.


If they dream about sipping decadent chocolat chaud at a café in Paris, then they'll love this pretty tin of La Parisienne Hot Chocolate. Inspired by creator Katrina Markoff's days working in a French pâtisserie, the tantalizing treat combines Madagascan vanilla bean with deep, dark chocolate. The result? A luxurious, handcrafted drink that transports their tastebuds to the heart of cafe culture.


Flowers are nice, but nothing beats a bouquet of chocolate-covered mini doughnuts. Obviously. Profess your love with these incredibly intoxicating and indulgent chocolate-dipped pastries. Twelve iced doughnut pops arrive in a beautiful gift box, wrapped in tissue and tied with a bow to impress your sweetheart. Can't get enough of the chocolate bouquet idea? See six more options down below.


Every chocolate lover needs an electric fondue set — for date nights, for dinner parties, for random weekdays when that chocolate craving hits. Deliver the goods this Valentine's Day with the small, but mighty Nostalgia fondue maker. The tabletop appliance includes a melting base, a removable melting bowl, a three-section tray and four skewers. You can break it in together.


Here's the scoop: You can never go wrong with chocolate ice cream. But if you've gifted a pedestrian pint or two in the past, then it's time to upgrade to artisanal flavors from one of the best ice cream shops in America, Humphry Slocombe. Their "Other Box of Chocolates" includes four crowd-pleasing creams, like Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple and Dark Chocolate Smoked Sea Salt. And if you want to sweeten the delivery? You can pair the V-Day gift with accouterments like chocolate sprinkles, hot fudge or bite-sized chocolate ice cream hearts.

Harry & David

If these molten chocolate lava cakes don't make your Valentine's heart melt, then nothing will. Crafted from world-class ingredients, each dessert features a moist base and a sweet surprise at its center. (Think ooey-gooey chocolate, raspberry or caramel sauce.) There are eight cakes in total, and they combine for one elegant, edible present.


Some Valentines like their chocolate with a hint of spice. Heat things up with these gourmet candy bars infused with limo chiles. Each bar is crafted with extra-virgin oil instead of cocoa butter, too, so they're unbelievably smooth and full of antioxidants. You can intensify the gift with chocolate cherry hot sauce, Mexican hot chocolate mix or even dark chocolate mango chili sticks.


Show your chocolate lover how much you care by keeping their pantry stocked with their favorite sauce. (Read: Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate.) You can choose any three of these scrumptious spreads and create a custom Valentine's Day present. They're perfect for ice creams, crepes, French toast and even steaming cups of coffee or milk.

Harry & David

You already know that you two go together like red wine and dark chocolate truffles. Now send the message to your partner with this exceptional Lucca & Sons Cellars gift set. The Valentine's Day-ready package includes a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, a bottle of Merlot and eight hand-painted truffles that you can enjoy together.


If they're a meat lover and a chocolate lover, then they'll get quite the kick out of this unconventional treat. Using fresh-baked shortbread cookies, smooth dark chocolate ganache and four types of hazelnuts, Chef Christian Petroni delivers a one-of-a-kind chocolate salami (that serves up to 20 people). Needless to say, it's whimsical and wonderful.

Williams Sonoma

Show your gluten-free sweetheart some love with twelve delectable (and dietary-friendly!) cupcakes. Inside the box, they'll find half a dozen cakes made from premium ingredients and topped with pretty orange fondant flowers. Need more gluten-free Valentine's Day gift ideas? Try the assorted truffles, chocolate-covered cherries, cookie sampler set or heart-shaped chocuterie board down below.

Compartés Chocolates

For the vegan Valentines out there, we suggest the Dark Chocolate Assortment Gift Box from Compartés. This baby is packed with apricots, pineapples, coconut clusters, orange peels, almonds and other plant-based provisions, all dipped in absurdly good vegan dark chocolate. You can further impress your S.O. with any of the vegan varieties down below.

Uncommon Goods

What do you get the chocolate lover who has it all? An experience, of course. Surprise your Valentine with "Nibs and Sips," a virtual chocolate and coffee tasting session with an expert instructor. They can choose the date and time that works best for them and soon learn how to pair their favorite flavors like a professional.
