When it comes to Valentine’s Day, chocolate is compulsory. You can’t avoid it, no matter how hard you try, so you might as well get the good stuff.

Comedian Jim Gaffigan once said that eating chocolates from a box is always a gamble. You could get caramel, you could get something that tastes like Aquafresh toothpaste. Or worse: you open up the box only to be attacked by a swarm of wasps.

Don’t wait until the last minute and buy a lesser box at your local drugstore in a panic. Choose a chocolate gift sets your boo will actually like.

1) Dove dark chocolate truffles heart gift box

Price: $11.86

2) Ferrero Rocher box
