Sure, some people might see a box of chocolates as a last-minute gift idea — one you revert to when you can't think of anything else— but those same people are dead wrong. A really amazing collection of treats — like the best assorted boxes of chocolates, below — are the gift that keeps on giving. Every time your lucky gift recipient places a piece of mouth-watering goodness into their mouths, they'll think of you and your act of kindness.

Seriously. Chocolate is always a good idea.

Since there are about a billion options when it comes to boxes of chocolates, it's a good idea to get a sense of what your friend or mom or friend's mom likes in terms of cocoa extravagance.

If they're into a colorful assortment of milk, white, and dark chocolate, we've got plenty of eclectic options on this list. Chocolate truffles are always a favorite, as are sought-after British chocolate candy bars and praline cremes from Germany. We had to include chocolate and peanut butter candies from Reese's, and there's even a gluten-free option, too.

These chocolate gift boxes make for sweet gift ideas for anyone on your list. And the ones below are among the best you can find.
