1. The European classic:
Not only are these delicious chocolates, but they come in a sleek flat box perfect for secret gift giving. Whether you're discreetly leaving a hostess gift at someone's home, or dropping a package into someone's bag when they're not looking. (Am I the only one who does this?) You can also click here and personalize a holiday label to print out and place on top of the package...or use the chocolate tag that I created at the end of this post. Order a few merci boxes to have on hand for that unexpected visitor that drops by.
2. A Pacific Northwest Favorite:
These silky smooth mint chocolates are like none other. Since 1918 these chocolates have been made in Seattle and are truly a Christmas treat. My mother-in-law makes a frozen dessert that almost matches the taste of these chocolates. Mmmm! I may need to get my hands on the recipe to share with you?! Place a bow on top of this hexagon box and hand deliver. It makes quite the statement, doesn't it?
3. My favorite chocolate treat:
Dark chocolate covered almonds
Yep, I graduated from Peanut M&M's long ago. I now adore these almonds covered in dark chocolate. And don't you feel you're making a better choice when you feed your chocolate addiction with an almond or two? No? Buy these elegant almonds in bulk and package up in cellophane bags with a chocolate brown ribbon. Add my Christmas Chocolate tag or a 'Nuts About You' printable tag to this gift.
4. For the Ultimate Chocolate Baker
Belgian Dark Chocolate Baking Block
So, this might be the gift of the lifetime?! It was for me! When this large block of chocolate showed up on my porch, my family was in heaven! From it came some amazing goodies including chocolate fondue, chocolate chip dipped cookies and Christmas dipped marshmallows. This block of chocolate is what chocolate lovers dream about! Seriously! It would be the ultimate gift with this cookbook as well.
5. To survive winter:
Starbucks Hot Cocoa Double Chocolate
Well, this one doesn't even need an explanation! We've all had those tasteless, watery hot chocolate packets that make you cringe, but this cocoa is pure goodness. The delicious double chocolate taste is perfect after a cold afternoon of outside sledding. Now-- if we could just get some snow this winter! These canisters make perfect neighbor gifts, too. Wrap up a color-coordinated scarf around it and hand deliver.
6. Something for my Christmas Wish List:
Chocolate Pen Draw & Mold
Take a look at this fun toy! Fill pen with melted chocolate and doodle away. Perfect for spelling names on cookies and treats.
Where was this tool when I needed it? A perfect gift for kids, too. Include a package of plain sugar cookies and a bag of chocolate for melting to make a complete gift ready to give.
7. For the Chocolate Learner:
Chocolate Smarts Board Game
This one is for the chocolate lover who has everything. A board game that teaches you chocolate knowledge as you play! Who wouldn't want to sound more knowledgeable when talking about chocolate? My chocolate vocabulary needs some work...'light, white, milk and dark' doesn't sound very sophisticated, does it?
8. For the kid in all of us:
Chocolate Bar Maker
Chocolate Bar Maker
Move over Easy Bake Oven...look at this! A kit to make your own chocolate bars. Melt chocolate and pour into the molds. Add sweets and sprinkles and let harden. Wrap them up to give to friends or eat them yourself. What a fun gift for kids and teens, just include lots of fun sprinkles to this gift.
9. For old-fashioned chocolate fun:
What a cute, classy gift this would make tied up with a few Hershey bars to go with it and this Hershey's Kiss Lip Gloss. You could make an entire chocolate gift basket adding in lots of dark chocolate colored gifts.
10. For chocolate viewing:
Chocolat Movie or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
For adults or for kids, both of these are perfect movies for chocolate lovers. Remember, when you gift a chocolate movie, be sure to include some chocolate to eat!
And of course you'll need a Chocolate tag to attach to these items.
