We’re overjoyed here at Delysia because every chocolate maker’s favorite holiday is back again: Valentine’s Day! It’s the one day where chocolate takes over — more than 58 million pounds of chocolate are bought during Valentine’s Day week — and gifts are shared between lovers across the world (that’s a beautiful thought on unity, isn’t it?). Chocolate is a no-brainer, but that still leaves you with the dilemma of what to pair it with to create the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift combo. Never fear, we’ve got your back: Take a look at this list of the best gifts to pair with chocolate we’ve put together and enjoy the pleasure of giving an awesome gift without the stress of having to figure out what that perfect present is.
Something edible and indulgent
The first ingredient in an indulgent gift pairing is our Lover’s Truffle Collection. This nine-piece slice of heaven that is comprised of rose petal (yea, rose petal), red velvet, and strawberry brut truffles is almost certainly guaranteed to blow the minds (and taste buds) of anyone who tries them. Pair these bad boys with some fancy champagne, some fresh strawberries, or wine (check out this wine and chocolate pairing guide if you need help) for a deeply decadent night of chocolate enjoyment. If your special someone is more of an early morning kinda person, gift your chocolate with some decadent coffee instead to make their favorite time of day extra special.
Something thoughtful and relaxing
This angle is especially great if your significant other has been stressed lately — and with the chaos that is the holiday season, who hasn’t? Pick up our out-of-this-world Sweetheart Collection truffles featuring raspberry, champagne, and dark chocolate varieties and pair that with something you know will relax your special someone. Surprise your babe with something like an audio book they love, a DVD or permanent download of a TV series they can’t get enough of, or a shiny new online streaming subscription and gift them a relaxing night of binging on their favorite form of entertainment with melt-in-your-mouth truffles in hand.
Something unique and active
If you’re boo is a yogi, health nut, runner, surfer or any other kind of awesomely active person, let their love for fitness take center stage in your Valentine’s Day gift this year. Start with our action-friendly chocolate and pair it with something like a cool new running app, a yoga membership, or a new tote or gym bag for hauling workout gear around. If you’re looking for a less “gifty” approach, simply pick some top notch trail mix supplies and whip up some homemade mix for your babe. Take this approach and that certain someone will think of you and smile every time they break a sweat.
