Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (no really, it’s only a few days away!). After almost a year of pandemic life, we’ll look for almost any excuse to get a bit festive, so this Valentine’s Day feels more special than ever.
With many businesses pivoting to online sales, we’ve tried some of the top-rated baked goods, candies, and edible gift baskets that can be delivered to your doorstep. But let’s be honest, this holiday is really all about one thing: chocolate. Our editors collaborated to assemble this list of our favorite places to order chocolate and other cocoa-packed gifts online.
1. Raaka Organic Chocolate Gift Box
If your giftee is a fan of organic chocolate in unique flavors (think: Vanilla Violet, Rose Cardamom, Tahini Swirl, and more), you surely don’t want to miss out on Raaka, a small Brooklyn-based chocolate company. Our Kitchen & Cooking editor Madison Trapkin loves Raaka chocolate so much that she’s tried almost all their flavors; she even gifted a Raaka chocolate subscription to her stepdad for Christmas!
In this gift box, each bar comes with detailed information about its origin and flavor profile. Plus, it includes The Pink Sea Salt Bar, which is Trapkin’s favorite because it strikes a perfect balance between sweet and savory.
2. Blondery Red Velvet Variety Box
Blondery is a direct-to-consumer virtual bakery that specializes in artisanal blondies, as pastry chef Auzerais Bellamy has spent more than 10 years fine-tuning her blondie recipe. Available to ship nationwide, Blondery features assortments of homemade bite-sized blondies in different flavors like gluten-free Brooklyn Blackout, Strawberry Rosé, and the extremely giftable Red Velvet Variety Box.
3. Condor Chocolates
This Athens, Georgia-based small batch chocolatier sources cacao from Ecuador, home to some of the finest cacao beans in the world. Condo Chocolate’s online shop offers a range of chocolate bars, truffles, drinking chocolate, and even expertly sourced coffee. Our editor Madison, who went to college in Athens, can testify that all their chocolates taste amazing.
4. Andre’s Confiserie Suisse
If you’re last-minute shopping for Valentine’s Day, Andre's Chocolate is your one-stop shop. Not only does the third-generation family-owned business produce some of the highest quality chocolate made in the country, but it also has a collection of Valentine’s Day themed chocolate gifts on offer, including this shareable Valentine Rocher Heart and this Date Night gift box.
5. Taza Chocolate
Somerville, Massachusetts-based Taza Chocolate has been a local favorite for some time now, and the chocolate confectionary business is expanding. This Hearts on Fire sampler contains eight chocolate Mexicano discs—a Taza specialty—with flavors ranging from Salted Almond to Guajillo Chili.
6. Baked by Melissa
If your sweetie likes their chocolate in the form of baked goods, you may want to try the delicious mini cupcakes from Baked by Melissa, a New York-based bakery that sells bite-sized mini cupcakes that our editors love. They’re the perfect size for people with a sweet tooth who don’t necessarily want to indulge in a full-sized treat every time they reach for a cupcake. We were impressed with the effective packaging, as every individual cupcake has enough protection without using too much packing material.
7. Stick with Me
Even if you aren’t a dessert person, you’ve probably seen these gorgeous bonbons all over Instagram. The patisserie behind these bonbons, Stick with Me, is a small, women-run business based in New York. Each box looks like a book, and the 12 delectable bonbons inside are of different flavors, including Macadamia Rice Puff, Passion Fruit, and more.
