Bittersweet's drinking chocolate prep kit.
Cacao rules everything around the Bittersweet Cafe (2123 Fillmore at California), and it's a great spot to pick up something sweet for someone special. A carefully curated international selection of bars are organized by milk and dark and start around $5 apiece. But Bittersweet's holiday highlights are its gift boxes.

The Drinking Chocolate Prep Kit ($29.95) contains an Aero-Latte battery-powered frother and two house-made custom hot chocolate blends in bittersweet and classic varieties; both use Valrhona cocoa, while the classic has added chocolate from S.F.-based chocolatier TCHO. The latter company also shows up in the Best of the Bay Collection ($38.95), a sampler of exciting local confections including bittersweet toffee tiles from Poco Dolce, Charles Chocolates caramelized rice krispie bar, Bittersweet Origins bar, E. Guittard Sur del Lago bar, Tcho Chocolatey bar, and three-piece holiday truffle collection from Coco-Luxe. You can also treat yourself to a soul-warming cup of spicy hot chocolate while you're there taking care of gifts for others.
