Almost everyone likes chocolate. Fortunately, it's a confection that lends itself well to being made into many different gastronomical delights that come in infinite shapes and sizes. The tradition of a heart-shaped box of chocolates as a gift to a sweetheart on Valentine's day has always been gender neutral, but chocolate gifts can be very male-interest specific. For men who like being stereotyped as motor heads, or aeroplane freaks, or big bad biker dudes there's a chocolate Valentine for that. Men who just want to indulge in luscious and decadent theme-free chocolate delicacies have no reason to be disappointed either.

Chocolates for the Car Lover
This category is a great deal of fun because some chocolate makers have taken great pains to replicate some pretty fantastic cars to scale: Volkswagens, Formula racing machines, even Army Jeeps and the Bat-mobile. Chocolate car sets are often foil wrapped and look very much like edible Matchbox car models.

Aeronautical Chocolate Valentines
The boy in him might even run around the room making aeroplane noises while flying a chocolate jet on a stick. He might also enjoy keeping the space shuttle going by tossing milk chocolate shuttle replicas around. If he was in the military a chocolate aircraft carrier cake with dozens of milk chocolate, foil covered planes on the flight deck would be a very romantic way to recognise and appreciate his service. For a favourite fan of air travel it wouldn't be difficult to make a half-globe chocolate cake iced in green and blue for Earth's land masses and ocean, and fly these same colourful chocolate planes around it supported by pickup sticks.
For Biker Dude Sweethearts
It seems the chocolate motorcycle craze started as a way for the chocolate Easter bunny to arrive Easter morning; many chocolate bikes are bunny-fied. Nevertheless there are milk chocolates shaped like World War II military bikes, "crotch rockets," Harley Davidsons and even scooters. Custom chocolates can be ordered---for a pretty high price---that are practically exact scale models of a real favourite bike with him and his sweetheart on-board. A chocolate heart cake with a model motorcycle topper is also a great way to say "I love you" to a motorcycle fan.

From cheesecake to German chocolate, mousse cake to chocolate cupcakes there is no cake that can't be decorated with a message of love. Any man who loves chocolate is happy to have a special desert chosen or made especially for him buy someone who knows and appreciates what he likes.
