Made with UK ingredients, such as fresh Dorset cream and sea salt, these high-quality truffles are truly top notch. The selection includes new flavour combinations, including mure liqueur with bramble jelly, peach liqueur & marc de champagne with white chocolate ganache, and griottine cherry in a black pepper-infused dark chocolate ganache. To go the extra mile, pair the selection with a large milk chocolate heart (£14), decorated with hand-painted shimmery mini hearts.

Hotel Chocolat The Everything Sleekster, £23.50

Everything sleekster

A classic hit among chocolate lovers, The Everything Sleekster from Hotel Chocolat provides a great selection for a range of preferences. The name really befits the product, as there really is a bit of everything.

Charbonnel et Walker pink champagne truffles, £15

Pink Marc de Champagne Chocolate Truffles

What's more appropriate for Valentine's Day than strawberries and champagne? Booze lovers will enjoy these luxurious truffles infused with a warming alcoholic kick and a subtle hint of strawberry. These iconic treats are a cult classic for a reason – the rich and creamy ganache centre is covered in a white chocolate shell, then rolled in icing sugar for an extra special touch. If champagne isn't for you, try another one of Charbonnel et Walker's famous flavours, such as dark sea salt caramel or Sipsmith gin.

Available from:

Rococo milk chocolate hearts, £12.95

Rococo hearts

Heart-shaped chocolates are the perfect romantic gift on Valentine's Day. These high-quality milk chocolates are made with 20% cocoa solids, with a rich and creamy texture. The metallic gold foiled hearts are complete with a striking red ribbon and gift bag. As they're individually wrapped, they're also great for sharing.

Brigadeiro Gourmet gift box, £17

Brigadeiro Truffles

Mix things up this Valentine’s Day with these Brazilian-inspired truffles. Brigadeiros are a dessert made from condensed milk, cocoa powder and butter, with chocolate sprinkles covering the outside. These are rich with a soft, creamy texture. You can customise your selection to include flavours ranging from chocolate and lemon, to pistachio and coconut. We particularly love the dulce de leche flavour, as the cinnamon notes are distinct and the sugar coating has a great texture.

Available from Brigadeiro Gourmet (£17 for a box of 12)

Bettys champagne truffles, £21

Betty's Champagne Truffles

Perfectly decadent for Valentine’s Day, these truffles from Bettys make a fantastic gift. The chocolate ganache in the centre contains both Moët & Chandon champagne and marc de champagne for added luxury. The outer layer is made with Swiss grand cru milk chocolate, then coated in dried raspberry icing sugar. These silky truffles melt in the mouth and are bursting with flavour. The delicate boozy kick is subtle and warming. We also can’t help but love the ornate gift box they’re presented in. These are a standout gift for any chocolate lover.

Available from Bettys (£21)

Booja-Booja chocolate truffles selection, £9.99

Booja Booja truffles

Fan favourite chocolate brand Booja-Booja offers a selection of its classic vegan-friendly truffles for just under £10. The squares of organic dark chocolate are full of rich flavours, including roasted hazelnut, gooey salted caramel, toasted almond, stem ginger, tangy rhubarb, and bold Mexican coffee. The selection includes 16 truffles, each rolled in bitter cocoa powder to offset the sweet ganache centres. We think this selection is fantastic value for money.

Available from:

Love Cocoa salted caramel truffles, £13.50

Love Cocoa Truffles

For an extra-luxe gift, try these salted caramel truffles from Love Cocoa. The gooey caramel centres are infused with a subtle kick of sea salt, and the truffles are enrobed in a thick chocolate shell and rolled in bittersweet cocoa powder. We love that these handmade truffles are free from palm oil, and made with ethically sourced ingredients. For a boozy alternative, we also love the white chocolate raspberry champagne truffles (£13.50).

Crunchy hazelnuts sit in the centre of a creamy filling, all wrapped in crispy wafer and milk chocolate. With this many truffles, it's big enough to share with loved ones during a special celebration together.

Montezuma's Valentine's Day truffle selection. £14.99

Valentines Truffle Collection

Celebrate this romantic occasion with this truffle selection from Montezuma's. The set contains a mixture of dark and milk chocolate, with salted caramel and hazelnut praline centres. We love the creamy texture of the chocolate paired with the luxurious fillings. As an added bonus, the festive packaging is 100 per cent recyclable. A favourite among chocolate lovers, Montezuma's sets itself apart as a brand, consistently delivering high-quality treats.

Available from Montezuma's (£14.99)

Lindt Lindor milk chocolate salted caramel chocolate gift box, £4.99

Lindor truffles

The newest flavour in the Lindor range, these salted caramel truffles have proven to be a hit among chocolate lovers. These are definitely on the sweeter side but the subtle salty notes really bring out the flavour of the creamy milk chocolate. Perfect for just about any occasion, Lindor truffles come in a variety of flavours. If salted caramel isn't your thing, try hazelnut, coconut or mint. The pink strawberries & cream flavour would be a perfectly appropriate gift for Valentine's Day, too.

Available from:

Willie's Cacao milk chocolate praline truffles with sea salt, £7.95

Willie's Milk chocolate Praline truffles

This striking teal box is full of luxurious Sur de Lago single-estate milk chocolate. It's blended with roasted hazelnuts and Cornish sea salt, then rolled in single-estate milk chocolate and dusted in cocoa powder. These praline truffles are not only exciting to unwrap but they taste just as great as they look, too. The sea salt contrasts the rich chocolate and brings out the flavour of the praline filling. This is a mature pick, and perfect for adults with a sophisticated palate.

Available from Chocolate Trading Company (£7.95)

Green & Black's organic tasting collection, £12.99
