The Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Serious Chocolate Lovers
Not all chocolate gifts are created equal. Sure, our cocoa-dusted almonds make a wonderful gift for someone special. And a selection of Charbonnel et Walker’s truffles never fails to please. But when it comes to impressing the serious cocoa buff on Valentine's Day, you may want to think outside the box.
So, what do you gift someone who's love language is chocolate? The answer lies in our Chocolate Hall, which is (ahem) choc-full of artisan creations to impress the connoisseur. Read on to discover just a few of our most luxurious and indulgent treats.

The Harrods Chocolaterie: Valentine’s Day Collection
Willy Wonka’s got nothing on our chocolatiers. In The Harrods Chocolaterie, they hand-make bonbons, mendiants, stuffed slabs, topped bars and more using our exclusive couverture. Build a bespoke box, tailored to their taste, using items from the fresh chocolate counter with the help of our in-house experts.
In the latest launch for Valentine’s Day, you’ll find our signature Bread & Butter Slab, that’s made using toasted and caramelised sourdough crumbs, mixed with caramelised white chocolate – all sandwiched between two layers of rich, 41% milk chocolate, and topped with a heart. For the true chocolate devotee, get hearts racing with a box of bonbons, featuring our limited-edition Valentine’s Day flavours – think raspberry and Tahitian vanilla caramel, manuka honey, Sicilian pistachio and orange, and morello cherry.
Farhi Chocolate-Coated Fruit and Nuts
Filling our cupboards with tempting chocolate for the past 20 years is Farhi. The fruit and nut selection boxes and beautiful hand-painted bonbonnières are an after-dinner or coffee table must-have. The latter also make the perfect keepsake to be refilled and treasured, ideal if you’re looking for a Valentine’s gift that’s delicious and can stand the test of time.
To’ak Dark Chocolate
When you’re advised to eat chocolate with wooden tweezers so that the oils on your fingers don’t interfere with the taste, you know you’re in for a gourmet experience. The creators of To’ak view the making of their bars like the making of fine wine, investing as much time and attention to cultivating cacao, highlighting the flavours of a harvest year and ageing chocolate as the world’s more prestigious vignerons.
To’ak started from a rainforest conservation project in Ecuador, the birthplace of chocolate, where it works with around 13 small-holder farmers, paying them the highest prices in the world. The precious dark chocolate comes from the rarest and most prized cocoa variety on earth, Ancient Nacional, which traces its genetic lineage back at least 5,300 years. The result is exceptional single-origin and single-harvest chocolate, which, paired with a tasting guide, expresses the unique terroir from whence it came.
