From the indulgent scent to the silky-smooth texture and decadent flavor, it's tough not to love chocolate—which is exactly why it makes for a solid gift for every occasion, whether it be Mother's Day or Valentine's Day. You can never have too much (who can resist a good chocolatey ice cream or grocery store guilty pleasure?), and it's almost universally beloved by all ages. In short? From a traditional box of chocolates to truffle cake pops, giving one of the best chocolate gifts is always a good idea—especially from our list below.
As chocoholics ourselves, we scoured the market to bring you the tops in a range of categories. We focused on meeting a variety of needs—from allergy-friendly sweets to presents of all sizes (ranging from gift sets that will satiate the whole office to smaller, luxe boxes for your closest friends). We also ensured they met specific criteria: They're relatively affordable, high quality and come packaged in ways that make them perfect for gifting. We also took things like allergies and shipping details into consideration—there are even some choices that will be suitable for people with a laundry list of dietary restrictions. Check out the cream of the crop below.
