Giving your Valentine “chocolates for love” is a romantic, decadent way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. These gourmet chocolate gift ideas range from chocolate perfume to mangoes dipped in dark chocolate…
Before the tips, a quip:
“Chocolate is a divine, celestial drink, the sweat of the stars, the vital seed, divine nectar, the drink of the gods, panacea and universal medicine.” ~ Geronimo Piperni.
This chocolate lover probably hadn’t heard of chocolate perfume — which I didn’t know existed until I started researching this article about Valentine’s chocolates for lovers! If your partner loves chocolate, surprise him or her with Delicious Chocolat Eau De Toilette Spray (it’s for men, too).
The rest of my tips for a gourmet chocolate Valentine’s Day are a bit more traditional and delicious…

Valentines Chocolates for Love – 7 Gourmet Chocolate Gifts
Sizzling chocolate bacon bar. Does your Valentine love bacon? Mine does…and he’d be intrigued by Chocolate.com’s Sizzling Bacon Bar. This chocolate bar contains popping candy, which gives you the efffect that the bacon is sizzling in your mouth. It’s made of 41% milk chocolate, apple wood smoked bacon, smoked sea salt and popping candy. This gourmet chocolate bar has won many awards, including “Best Flavored Bar” at the San Francisco Chocolate Salon.
Gourmet chocolate caramels or popcorn. This is a more traditional gift — a Valentine’s Day Chocolate Gift Tower. It includes gourmet caramels including Golden (vanilla), Chocolate and Espresso. It’s a nice break from “just” a chocolate Valentine’s gift — I prefer the dark chocolate caramels, myself. Another idea is chocolate covered popcorn; I prefer homemade over store bought. Homemade popcorn tastes fresher, and gives you the chance to perfect a chocolate recipe for Valentine’s Day!
Chocolate dipped kiwis, cherries, strawberries, and mangoes. I think chocolate covered fruit — especially blueberries and cherries — are the cat’s meow when it comes to Valentines chocolates for love! They’re a bit on the pricey side because they’re not “just” chocolate, but they’re worth it. Chocolate.com carries a wide variety of gourmet cchocolate covered fruit, such as Chocolate Dipped Dried Pear Halves, Chocolate Brandied Cherries, and Dark Chocolate Covered Orange Peels. The beauty of chocolate and fruit isn’t just that it tastes delicious…the fruit is also healthy and full of antioxidants! Yum.
Chocolate soap, bubble bath, and shampoo. How about a gourmet chocolate for love that you and your Valentine can enjoy in an intimate way? Soap each other up with chocolate fudge shampoo and bubble bath — and you also get the luxury of chocolate without the calories! The gourmet chocolate cupcake soap is both practical and fun way to say “I love you.” If your Valentine is into body lotions, Amazon.com also carries organic dark chocolate mocha body cream.
Gourmet chocolate gift fountain. The last New Year’s Eve party I went to featured a chocolate fountain and heaps of fresh strawberries, apples, and bananas. We also dipped breads, pretzels, cookies, and marshmallows. This is quite the decadent chocolate Valentine’s Day gift — but it sure would be fun! It’s a great idea for a Valentine’s Day party, or even just a romantic chocolate fondue for a couple in love.
Valentines chocolate lovers’ bouquet of roses. This is the most gorgeous gourmet chocolate gift for lovers! A chocolate flower bouquet lasts longer than a bouquet of real roses (maybe, depending on how much your chocolate lover loves chocolate!). It’s one of those romantic gifts that one hates to eat, but can’t resist.
Personalized messages on chocolate bars, hearts, or cookies. For my 30th birthday, my best friend gave me a cake with two pictures of me on it. It was so cool — it was the best birthday cake I ever saw and tasted! Personalized Valentines chocolates are a great way to express love to your sweetheart; just click the roses to go to Chocolate.com. Or, if your Valentine likes M&Ms, consider giving personalized M&M’S®. The Mars chocolate experts will put your lover’s photo or a write “I love you” on their little bits ‘o chocolate bliss.
