Valentine’s Day calls for sugar, of course, but what if the object of your affection doesn’t go for the traditional stuff? When you’re looking for something sweet to offer that non-traditional person in your life—specifically if that non-traditional person likes his or her treats organic, vegan, gluten-free, fair-trade or all of the above—it can be difficult to distinguish between the amazing and the... cardboard-y. This guide is here to help.

Intense Anatomical Hearts, Lagusta’s Luscious
Nothing says “I love you” like a box full of edible vital organs. New Paltz, New York, chocolatier Lagusta Yearwood makes this cheeky bonbon with 66 percent dark chocolate and paints it with completely natural dyed cocoa butter. To amp up the intensity, the chocolates also contain coffee, cacao nibs, black sea salt and dried cherries, which add the perfect dose of sweetness. A less intense Valentine’s Day option from the shop is the non-anatomical My Heart Is a Blood Orange and It Belongs to You, which features layers of blood orange caramel and white chocolate ganache, all enrobed in dark chocolate and garnished with a slice of candied blood orange. $15 for 8
