The truth is, whether you’re talking about your wife, your kids, your gal pals or your coworkers, you can brighten anyone’s day with a sweet little (or big) something that says you care. So, with that in mind, here’s a roundup of online gifts, from traditional chocolate to nontraditional adaptogenic cocoa powder (don’t run away!), that you might want to surprise someone with this year!

1. For the special kids in your life: Lake Champlain’s The Kid’s Owl Valentine Chocolate Box, $14

A six-piece box of assorted milk chocolates becomes even sweeter when you add a happy owl asking “whoooo loves you?” to the front. The chocolates inside are organic and kosher, some shaped like hearts.

2. For the grownup chocolate lover: Organic Chocolate Box from VivaSense on Etsy, $25

What’s fun about this set of chocolate bars on Etsy is that it’s totally customizable. You get to pick which four chocolate bars to include in your box. Options include: 100% Virgin Dark Chocolate, 85% Virgin Dark Chocolate, 66% Dark Chocolate, Chocolate 58% + Quinoa, Chocolate 58% + Lemongrass + Quinoa, Chocolate 72% + GoldenBerries, Chocolate 72% + Mint and Chocolate 72% + Roses + Lemon (roses and lemon, what!).

3. For the chocolate connoisseur: The Larder Chocolate Flight from Brooklyn Larder, $49

OK, obviously, everybody enjoys a little chocolate, especially on a holiday that’s almost defined by it—but for the person who doesn’t just like, but actually l-o-v-es, chocolate, why not go big? Brooklyn Larder offers with an entire flight of delicious, unique bars, hand-selected by its team. This sampling showcases some of the most special chocolates in the market and comes with descriptions detailing what’s great about them.

4. For the woman who could use a little luxury in this long, cold winter: Joyaria Womens Bamboo Pajama Sleepwear, $36.99

The Polar Vortex took it out of a lot of us, and, whether your temps have since warmed up or not, cozy pajamas are always a welcome sight. For the girl who’s survived the dreary days of winter and could use a little comfort, why not order this cute matching pajama set? Someone on Instagram recommended it highly—and the 4.4-star Amazon rating’s not a bad sign, either. Bonus idea: pair it with some nourishing body butter from Nashville’s own Thistle Farms, perfect for knocking out the season’s dry skin woes.

5. For the health nut who likes to indulge in a fun treat here or there: Harry & David’s Organic Snack Box, $59.99

From your relatives who are health nuts to your coworker who’s a self-professed foodie, who wouldn’t love a bin of wholesome treats such as cranberry maple granola, Earl Grey tea and chocolate coffee bean bark?

6. For the animal lover with a sweet tooth: Vegan Sweet Treats from Chelsea Market Baskets, $65

This gift basket contains all vegan, and only vegan, snacks. From crunchy cookies to a HU chocolate bar (endorse!) to vegan gummies, each item has absolutely no animal products in it. 

7. For the stressed out, tightly wound: Cosmic Cocoa from Moon Juice, $30

Got a friend who’s coming off coffee and high on stress? Give the gift of adaptogens in cosmic cocoa from Moon Juice. Let him or her run a first-hand test of the claims that ashwagandha, shatavari and reishi can make a difference in daily anxiety!

8. For the wanna-be baker: Artisan Sourdough Made Simple, $14.95
