There are a few gifts that, no matter what, never fail to please—we're talking chocolate. And right up next to fresh flowers, chocolate gifts reign supreme when it comes to holidays, hostess thank-yous, and special anniversaries. You can call them classic or tried-and-true, but they’re anything but boring, and our roundup of the best chocolate gifts is all the proof you need.

Get ready to dig into an array of mouthwatering presents, spanning all price points and all starring everyone’s favorite treat—chocolate. While we have the quintessential heart-shaped boxes of truffles, of course, many of these totally Instagrammable (and did we mention yummy?) gifts showcase their main ingredient in unique ways. Think banana foster chocolate bars, chocolate-covered bacon, and chocolate wine pairings. There’s even a chocolate pizza you can give to your sweetheart—along with a pizza your heart. We’ll show ourselves out…

Here, the best chocolate gifts.
