Sweet token: 10 best Valentine's Day chocolates
Chocolate might not be original for 14 February, but the right box can make a thoughtful and delicious gift
Chocolatiers love Valentine's Day. At this time of year, the shelves and online shops are full of pink and red-hued boxes. Choosing the right one, which strikes just the right note with your nearest and dearest, can be a tricky path to navigate.
We've gone through the offerings and picked a selection of the most moreish and innovative chocs; from Ashby Treats’ beautifully presented With Love Truffle Stick to Amelia Rope's luxurious and elegant Pale Sea Salt Chocolate Cubes.

For chocolates and packaging that will surprise, we think East India Company's Spice Infused box is a winner if you're feeling extravagant. For just a taste of chocolate to go with a card or another pressie, the Charbonnel et Walker Mini Pink Heart Champagne Truffles are a sweet touch. And for an office pleaser come Friday, the box of Butlers Valentine Hearts work well for a single or attached crowd.
