Gift idea: Belgian chocolate-covered potato chips

See also

Women who are world travelers know how hard it is to find a gift for a man -- a husband, boyfriend, father, co-worker, you name it. That's often because they pretend they don't need a gift or don't want one.

But when you strike it right and get them a gift they really love, you've truly achieved something. In fact, you can see it in their faces, so they don't even need to say anything.

That happened to this world traveler over Valentine's Day, as I gave an ultra indulgent gift of Belgian Chocolate Covered Potato Chips to my Valentine -- and he flipped over them. They were submerged in dark, milk and white chocolate and couldn’t have been better.

This somewhat unexpected delicacy is the perfect combination between decadent chocolate and crisp, salty chips. Basically, we're talking two sometimes-forbidden snacks rolled right up into one perfect savory and sweet combination. And for guys, who don't often worry as much about gorging themselves on chocolate or chips -- these chips are a very memorable gift. But they're not just for Valentine's Day – they would be perfect for any occasion – for a birthday or to celebrate making it through another work week.

You can find them for just $34.99 at GourmetGiftBaskets.com -- one of the fastest-growing gifting sites in the country, where there are literally hundreds of tasty items for men, women, kids and even pets.

And if the combination between savory and sweet is a hit at your house, GourmetGiftBaskets.com also has 72 flavors of popcorn – some with savory flavors and others that are sweet. So maybe that next gift for your guy could also include birthday cake popcorn or maybe even something more traditional like chocolate-covered cherries.

World travelers can take their gourmet chips on any flight out of local SFO International Airport. Deals can be found online.
