Festive gifting season is nearly upon us, and before I post my gift guide, I want to share an affordable gift that nearly everyone would love – chocolates. Gifting someone can be a complicated process and requires lots of thinking and pondering upon ideas of what will best suit the situation or would be appreciated by the receiver. Whether it is Christmas approaching, or the birthday of someone special, chocolates are something that fits everyone’s taste buds, and now with so much variety, including Vegan options, they are something that everyone can appreciate.
Bars, wafers, chips, dark, semi-sweet, or bitter, there is so much to explore about chocolates. Here is what makes chocolates a perfect gift for any occasion – especially the festive season of decadence!
It helps bring smiles to people’s faces
There is something about the smell and taste of chocolate that can easily melt anyone’s mood. Gifting someone high-quality premium chocolates made with unique ingredients and a creative touch, can feel both luxurious and homely at the same time. New innovtions in chocolate making, can makes this very traditional gift something that unique and quirky. It comforts but can also bring excitement at the same time. Just watch someone go awe over the most perfect chocolate gift hamper or an elaborate chocolate bouquet!
It helps create memories
For all of history, chocolate has been part of our gift giving traditions. We actually hold a lot of memories that centre around chocolate – especially as a child, when chocolate was seen as a special treat, or an ever so slightly naughty indulgence. The gift of chocolate helps create memories as they have always been in our lives during any kind of celebration. I hold a Galaxy Ruffle with great affection because my elderly Grandpa brought me one home from his trip to the doctor’s. I was worried about him, and he brought me home this as a treat.They are affordable gifts
What’s more, boxes of chocolates are mostly easy on the finances too. They are easy to find, and many companies or bakers can even get them tailored-made for you. You can choose gift hampers, chocolate bouquets, assorted chocolates, and personalised boxes to add some creativity to gifting. You could even hand-make your own seasonal chocolate bark.
Enjoyed universally by everyone
It’s difficult to find someone who doesn’t like chocolates. Even those who don’t indulge in sugar much will appreciate the idea of getting a chocolate box. From sugar-free chocolates to Vegan chocolates, to sweet-salty drizzled dark chocolate, there is an option for everyone.
They display passion
They are best for explaining feelings and emotions. Chocolates are a passionate way of expressing your love to your loved ones. You can choose to go for heart-shaped chocolates and get “i love you” scribbled on them, but whatever chocolate you get, it shows the receiver that you care about them, that you want to comfort them. It’s like a giant hug in a box.They give a feeling of comfort
Sweets have proven to be comforting when your mood is down, and they lift the mood during slow days and need a boost of happiness and a soothing feeling. We associate chocolate with self-care, with treating ourselves and with comforting us when we are down. They are the perfect gift for both a sad and a happy occasion.
They can be personalised
Getting chocolate tailor-made is easy and gives a personal touch to the gift. Whether it’s Valentine’s Day or a birthday, you can easily get a wrapper customized with a name, picture, or a personalized message to make an occasion even more special. You can even get chocolates printed with your face on them!
Chocolates are not just luxuries, they are happiness. There are so many varieties available in the market that choosing one kind of chocolate can be a tough decision to make. They make perfect gifts without breaking your bank. Spoil someone on their special day with luxurious chocolates or even a chocolate-making experience!
