For the record, I am a man, and I love quality chocolate, and would be more excited about it than another book to add to the millions I have, and no time in which to read it. There are assortments and ways to give it that are professional, not romantic. Maybe check some of the manufacturer's websites and order online-easy. Scharffen-Berger and Ghirardelli come to mind. Seems like an easy, inexpensive, popular gift to me.
