A Valentine’s Day chocolate present for your girlfriend or wife is thoughtful, but you may worry it’s not an exceptional, out-of-the-box (pun intended) gift. Don’t get us wrong, we adore handcrafted, gourmet chocolate, especially blended with our homemade English toffee. We simply can’t get enough of the stuff! Even so, we realize that if you want to make her feel special come February 14th, you might want to consider going with some truly unique gourmet chocolate instead of her usual go-to candies.

So, why does she crave chocolate gifts? Here are three reasons the extraordinary women in your life love chocolate for Valentine’s Day – and will continue to do so, especially if you get creative with your gift ideas.

Make Her Feel Special with a Whimsical Gourmet Chocolate Pizza

The attention that goes into purchasing a gift, and how that gift matches her personality, says a lot about the gift giver. Why not make her feel extra special on those romantic holidays (Valentine’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries) with some gourmet chocolate instead of her habitual candy choices? Luckily for you, Chocolate Pizza excels at creating fun and personable desserts as exceptionally gourmet chocolate gifts meant to delight and amaze.

Our signature chocolate pièce de résistance, for which our company is named, is our Chocolate Pizza®. Starting with homemade English toffee (made on-site with a 100-year-old recipe), which is blended with gourmet milk or dark chocolate, we build the rest of the pizza from there. Next is an array of delectable toppings, ranging from peanut butter treats like on our Peanut Butter Cups and Candy Chocolate Pizza to pizza pies covered in almonds, caramel, pecans, pretzels, and walnuts like our Drumstick Chocolate Pizza.

If you really want to demonstrate how much you care, you can make a statement of love with a personalized Chocolate Pizza designed by you and built by us with a bespoke romantic message for her written across the pizza pie in scrumptious white chocolate. A build-your-own Chocolate Pizza makes for a spectacular gift of holiday chocolate for a girlfriend.

The Science Behind Why Chocolate Gifts Are Bound to Please

If you’d like to know why she loves Valentine’s Day chocolate gifts, you ought to learn a little about the science behind chocolate’s universal appeal. First off, chocolate in general and specialty chocolates like Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips or Caramel Nut Drumsticks covered with gourmet milk or dark chocolate contain sugar (and in these instances, salt as well). And while raw sugar is used everywhere these days, once upon a time, it was quite rare, which is why our body still craves it so.

Sugar puts glucose into your bloodstream quickly and can help reduce stress, hence our cravings for sweet treats. Add delicious chocolate to the mix, which melts on your tongue and feels incredible to eat, and those good feelings increase even more.

So, mouthwatering chocolate tastes wonderful, reduces stress and gives us a warm feeling akin to love. Is it any wonder why so many people on the planet go head over heels for chocolate, or why we choose it as a Valentine’s gift for her?

Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her

In addition to our Chocolate Pizza®, we offer other distinctive Valentine’s Day gifts for her. The uniqueness of your romantic, edible present will help keep your Valentine’s Day chocolate tradition alive. Woo her with our one-of-a-kind salty-sweet Peanut Butter Wings, or perhaps a one of our specialty chocolates, like our velvety Caramel S’mores (a tasty explosion of caramel, chocolate, and marshmallow poured over graham crackers) or rippled Sea Salt Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips.

This Valentine’s Day, or on any special occasion, gift chocolates with a cheerful and creative spirit imbued in every bite, with an attentive eye focused on satisfying and surprising the woman at the center of your adoring heart.
