A box of chocolates really is a wonderful thing. It can say "I love you," or, "you rock mom!" or even, "something to battle the Tuesday blues," depending on who you gift it to.

Chocolates and Valentine's Day are a tradition that go as far back as 1861, according to Gourmet Live. Back then the Cadbury Brothers successfully marketed the world's first boxed chocolates, and today more than 36 million boxes are sold every February 14th.

So whether they're for your mom, your boyfriend/girlfriend, fiance, cousin or bestie, we've prepared a list of places in-state where you can pick up that delicious taste of a "Happy Valentine's Day."
