Valentine’s Day chocolate gifts
Chococo valentine selection box, £18
Treat your partner to this showstopping selection box full of handcrafted luxury chocolate truffles. Made with local 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, decorated with hand-painted shimmery mini hearts.
Brigadeiro Gourmet gift box
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 lace flavour, as the cinnamon notes are distinct and the sugar coating has a great texture.
Betty’s champagne truffles
Perfectly decadent for Valentine’s Day, these truffles from Betty’s 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.
Booja-Booja chocolate truffles selection, £9.99
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.
Love Cocoa salted caramel truffle box, £8.50
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. To make things even better, the gift box is letterbox-friendly to ensure your delivery is as simple as possible. For a boozy alternative, we also love the white chocolate raspberry champagne truffles.
Ferrero Rocher chocolate set box, £11
Who wouldn’t love opening a box of Ferrero Rocher on Valentine’s Day? This giant gift set is any chocolate lover’s dream, as it’s packed with 42 truffles, all wrapped in the iconic gold foil with the signature logo on top. 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.
Charbonnel et Walker pink champagne truffles, £15
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.
Montezuma’s Valentine’s Day truffle selection. £14.99
Celebrate this romantic occasion with this truffle selection from Montezuma’s. The set contains a mix 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.
Lindt Lindor milk chocolate salted caramel chocolate gift box, £4.99
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.
Divine chocolate hearts, £4
Looking for a budget-friendly option? Look no further than these mini chocolate hearts from sustainable chocolate brand Divine. Available in smooth milk chocolate, 70% dark chocolate and creamy white chocolate strawberry, these moreish bite-sized treats are perfect for snacking on during your romantic night. Our favourite of the three varieties is the milk chocolate hearts. They’re silky smooth, and you can’t go wrong with the classic flavour.
PlayIn Choc JustChoc boxes, £5.95
Vegans (and those with dairy, gluten and soy allergies) needn’t miss out on high-quality chocolate this Valentine’s Day. We love these silky, dairy-free chocolate pieces (available in milk or dark) that come embossed with little hearts. The packaging it completely compostable, too! Our editors rank this chocolate time and time again. The small pieces are the perfect size for snacking when a sweet tooth strikes. Coming in under £6, these are a great budget-friendly Valentine’s gift.
Willie’s milk chocolate praline truffles with sea salt, £7.95
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.
Hotel Chocolat The Everything Sleekster, £22.95
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. Flavours range from caramel cheesecake and Eton mess, to raspberry smoothie, peanut butter, billionaire’s shortbread, carrot cake, and more. The set includes 27 truffles made with white, milk and dark chocolates. It’s a good choice for those who prefer variety in their chocolate selection.
Green & Black’s organic tasting collection, £12.99
If you’re not keen on truffles, these mini chocolate bars make a great alternative. This tasting selection provides a great chance to sample the extensive range of flavours offered by classic chocolate brand Green & Black’s. Treat your partner to a variety of flavours, including toffee, ginger, almond, sea salt and hazelnut & currant. We particularly love the butterscotch flavour, which is full of toasty, sweet notes. The gift box includes a larger dark chocolate bar, tasting notes, and recipes to use your chocolate.
