So if you asked me what I most certainly do not want (or need) for Valentine’s Day, you know, other than a pair of red leather chaps, it would have to be a 100 billion calorie box of chocolates. 

But the organic artisan chocolates from Lilliebelle Farms found at Kate’s Caring Gifts could absolutely make me change my mind. Handmade using fresh regional ingredients, it’s the perfect something special for a culinarily adventurous valentine (or anytime lover). How can you resist passionfruit caramels, macadamia nut chews with ginger, or the hot bonbon of 2008 – a lavender caramel topped with a sprinkling of sea salt? Yum.

If you’re not a cordial person (heh) click around the site which, as its name might indicate, has an entire category of organic and fair trade chocolates. Suddenly I’m able to justify those calories so much better. -Kristen
