Giri choco (義理チョコ?, literally, "obligation chocolate") is chocolate given by women to men on Valentine's day in Japan. It is a relatively inexpensive type of chocolate women give to male co-workers, casual acquaintances, and others to whom they have no romantic attachment.[1][2]

Men generally reciprocate by giving women cookies and other gifts on White Day, celebrated on March 14.
