There’s no better gift for the chocolate lover in your life than a chocolate candy gift basket. It makes a great present for just about any occasion … a birthday, Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, Easter, even Christmas.
So what do you look for in a chocolate candy gift basket?
If the gift is for a close friend or a spouse or a family member and you know the person’s tastes … go with what you know. Even chocolate lovers can have their own personal preferences. So if you know she enjoys a particular type or a particular brand, seek out a collection that you know will satisfy her.
If she enjoys variety, consider chocolate truffles, butter creams and soft centers, dipped fruits, caramels, and gourmet chocolates. These can all be prepared in milk, dark, or white chocolate combinations that are simply irresistible. And if she enjoys a variety of brands, these can include everything from Belcolade to Callebaut, from Ghiradelli to Lindt, from Rocky Mountain to Lake Champlain, from Romanicos to Recchiuti Confections.
You can even find gift baskets for the vegan. Or the sugar free variety for the diabetic.
For a more personal touch … make your own chocolate candy gift basket. You can pick up a beautiful basket at your local crafts shop for less than a few dollars. Line it with a colorful cloth napkin or two, fill it with a few gourmet chocolates (for instance. Godiva or Lindt or Ghiradelli are all popular brands), add some candy bars, perhaps some mint truffle hot cocoa, Hershey’s Kisses, and wrap it all up with a beautiful ribbon and bow. That’s all it takes. A few minutes of preparation and your thoughtfulness will be appreciated for a long time to come.
On the professional side, gift baskets are also great for business promotions or to express appreciation to company team members or even the whole office. While a wonderful selection of different chocolates that suit a variety of tastes should be your first and foremost concern, you can even do more. For example, why not take advantage of modern technology and customize some of the chocolates with your business emblem or name? What a powerful way to brand a business while expressing appreciation to those who help build and run the business!
Whether your budget is large or small, your choices are gourmet or everyday and available at your local grocery store, a chocolate candy gift basket is sure to bring a smile to your favorite chocolate lover. In fact, it’s hard to go wrong.
