We’ve waved our goodbyes to January and just like that, Valentine’s Day is coming up fast! So, it’s time to embrace your inner romantic and find the perfect gift for your special someone.
Chocolate is a classic go-to for Valentine’s Day gifts – it’s sweet, safe, and perfect for sharing! Whether you’re shopping for a significant other, a best friend, a family member, or simply for someone special to you, chocolate gifts are sure to put a smile on the recipient’s face, and there are endless, heart-warming possibilities to choose from.
Let’s explore some of the top chocolate gifts for different recipients together in our list of Our Best Chocolate Gifts for Valentine's Day.
For Your One and Only
Valentine’s is a great opportunity to go the extra mile for the one who truly has your heart. And when it comes to choosing something special, we’ve hit the nail on the head. Our Gifts of Love Collection has been updated especially for Valentine’s Day 2023 to include a variety of irresistible and unique gifts like no other which really capture the essence of the romantic holiday.
The first to make it onto our Valentine’s Gift Guide is our new Sharing Hearts Chocolate Bar Set. This beautifully presented duo is an ideal treat for two to share, radiating both love and deliciousness in equal measure in the form of two hand-decorated chocolate bars. One bar bears a popping pink colour to catch their eye, and has been lovingly topped with white chocolate drizzle and freeze-dried strawberry pieces to win their heart (the key to true love is through the stomach, after all!). And it gets better!
The second chocolate bar is made from Cocoba’s exclusive Belgian chocolate recipe to give it a flavour like no other chocolate, complete with hand-piped white chocolate drizzle to give it an elegant finish. Available for just £9.95, our new addition to the Valentine’s range makes a great choice for complimenting any romantic date night plans you have in the pipeline with a touch of sweetness.
If you’re not convinced they’ll have it in their heart to share, our second sweet token on the guide is our Heart Marshmallow Hot Chocolate Bombe & Mug Gift Set. Designed exclusively for one to enjoy, this set contains the perfect pair for a hot chocolate enthusiast; a milk hot chocolate bombe bursting with heart marshmallows, and a Cocoba hot chocolate mug. If you’re lucky, they might allow you to take a sip and sneak a marshmallow at least!
For Your Galentine
What better way to warm the heart of your No.1 Gal than with heart-themed chocolate? If you’re all about Galentine’s Day on February 13th, our Love Collection is perfectly versatile, so you can easily find a gift for any recipient with no need to worry about searching for something less intense and couple-oriented.
Our Heart Shaped Hot Chocolate Bombes are new to the range, and they make the sweetest duo to share with your bestie. Each hot chocolate bombe is made from Belgian milk chocolate (so there’s no need to bicker over which flavour you want!) and perfected with a drizzle of which chocolate to create the perfect gift. Ideal for enjoying together, they’re an essential treat to indulge as a pair as you put your feet up and watch your favourite rom-coms this Galentine’s Day… after a cheeky takeaway and bottle of wine, of course!
Alternatively, if you’re going all out to celebrate this Galentine’s Day and hosting a number of your best friends, our Heart Marshmallow Hot Chocolate Bombes are a must-have to keep everybody sweet. Available in both single boxes and multi-packs of three, these hot chocolate bombes are incredibly moreish and loaded with love, so they make a perfect treat to surprise your guests with and enjoy together as part of your Galentine’s activities, or a loveable addition to a thoughtful hamper of their favourite things.
For Your Sweetheart
If the apple of your eye is someone you’re sweet on but you’re not quite at the ‘One and Only’ stage just yet, you want a gift that’s thoughtful and enjoyable without going over the top. This is where Personalised Chocolate Gifts can be a great help in keeping things playful and light-hearted. Why not add a witty element to your Valentine’s date night with a gift that bears reference to an inside joke that’s personal to the two of you? You can add up to 22 characters to our Personalised Hot Chocolate Spoon to surprise them with a treat that’s special and resembles your chemistry.
Alternatively, if you know they’re partial to a bar of chocolate, our Personalised Engraved Chocolate Bars can be customised with three lines of text, each with a 10 character limit, so you have space to write something as sentimental or as jovial as you wish to raise a smile this Valentine’s Day!
However, if you’re wanting to show the love for someone you have no romantic attachment to, such as a family member (or even your whole family), Valentine’s Day is the ideal occasion to express how much you care about them. The love we feel for our family is often just as important to us, after all.
Sending a thoughtful collection of treats for your loved ones to enjoy is a wonderful option to consider if you’re not able to spend the day together, so we recommend our Love Collection Gift Set if you’re keen to wow them with a lovely gesture from afar. It comes beautifully presented in a black gift box that’s sealed shut with a hand-tied ribbon to keep all the delicious contents safe and secure, and you can even add a gift message to your order to add a personal touch and ensure they feel appreciated when they unbox their treats.
Little Gifts that are BIG on Love
We also have a selection of little treats which are big on love if you’re looking to send a sweet token and keep to a budget at the same time.
Our Raspberry Champagne Truffles are a popular go-to at Valentine’s Day, adored by our customers for their moreish flavour and gorgeous presentation in our Cocoba Gift Tin. Likewise, our Heart Marshmallow Hot Chocolate Spoon is an irresistible gift idea for Valentine’s Day, praised for its heavenly chocolate flavour and loveable appearance which has made it a well-received gift for many customers.
Both options make heart-warming standalone gifts to suit smaller budgets, or they can easily be added to a homemade hamper of other goodies to build a thoughtful selection that’s tailored to your giftee and guaranteed to make them blush.
