I am a chocolate lover and my kids have learned that I would be extremely sad if a birthday or Christmas went by without someone giving me chocolate. And my husband has no problem deciding what to give me for our anniversary or on Valentines Day â€“ chocolate of course!
For those who may not be quite as fond of this confectionery as I am, you may be wondering what exactly would make perfect gifts for chocolate lovers. Here are some suggestions:
or imported chocolates
You could, of course, buy some fancy Hershey chocolates (eg
heart shaped chocolates for Valentines Day) but I would suggest you rather
spend a bit more and buy gourmet or imported chocolates â€“ Swiss, French,
Belgian or German are all great. If you know the preference of the recipient
buy the type they like â€“ I like mint and truffle chocolates, but if you don't
know, either go with a box that contains a wide variety of flavors or go with
just straight plain chocolate. A gift basket of different imported slabs will also

Most chocolate lovers will also appreciate anything covered with chocolate â€“ chocolate raisins, chocolate peanuts and I have even seen chocolate wasabi peas! A gourmet chocolate cake or expensive chocolate ice-cream is another idea. And don't forget about ideas like expensive hot chocolate mixes. I love all of these, but would never think of buying them for myself, so they would make a great gift for me, and many other chocolate lovers too.
3. A chocolate fountain
I must admit, if I know there is going to be a chocolate fountain at a wedding or party, I want to be there! No party food can compare to dipping strawberries into a rich stream of cascading chocolate! Until recently commercial fountains were the only ones available, but now you can buy a Sephra Chocolate Fountain for home use. My sister bought one a few months ago and she uses it at every opportunity.
In conclusion, if you are looking for gifts for chocolate lovers â€“ just give them what they want â€“ something with lots of chocolate that they can enjoy! Don't try to be too inventive. Personally, I don't enjoy books about chocolate or baking with chocolate. They just make me hungry for the real thing! Stick with giving chocolate â€“ as much of it as you can afford, and they will thanks you for it!
