Chocolates are often a welcome Valentine’s gift, but why not switch up this classic gift?

Made from coarsely ground cacao, sugar, and cinnamon, these discs also typically contain chiles, nuts, and spices. There are so many different varieties out there, so pick up this Chocolate Organic Mexicano Sampler. It has eight different flavors, including chipotle chili and guajillo chili.

Trying to find the perfect gift may be as simple as picking up a few brews. These days, plenty of brewing companies have started making variety packs. Think of it as a heart-shaped box of chocolates, but with beers instead. Local stores are sure to have a few variety packs on the shelves, or go straight to the source and check with local breweries near you. Bonus points if it’s from his favorite! If all else fails, retailers like Total Wine & More offer shipping to eligible addresses.
