It’s that time of the year again, the one where I share with you a fantastic gift idea from Hotel Chocolat. I say it every year, I think, but if you have a chocolate lover in your life I can’t think of a better place to go gift shopping for them. I recently wanted to treat a friend for her birthday and was thrilled with what I was able to put together for her from the site – You know someone’s going to appreciate a gift from Hotel Chocolat because they know it’s something extra special!
This year I have the ‘Merry Little Christmas Hamper’ to show you – It came with a lovely lid, tied with ribbon, but the lid was so reflective that I had to take it off, you’ll have to believe me that the over all effect was fantastic.
And just look at what it contains. I love this little hamper because it contains so much variety that you can’t go too far wrong (as long as they like chocolate, of course!) – There’s such a nice balance between plainer items and some different flavours, there’s some white, milk, dark and caramel, there’s just a little bit of everything. This sort of gift woud be great for a chocolate lover, or maybe if you buy for a whole family to share as there’s bound to be something for everyone in there.
There are two, full sized, chocolate slabs – One in Comet Does Caramel and the other in Rocky Road. I think both of these are great to include in a hamper such as this as they’ll suit a lot of people’s tastes, not too obscure. I am particularly excited about Comet Does Caramel as I love both the white and caramel chocolate from Hotel Chocolat and this one contains both!
Sticking with safe bets, next up are these beautiful milk chocolate snow flakes. I am in love with how pretty these are, I think they’d be a beautiful stocking filler. They also do miniature versions of these in a star decoration to hang on the tree which I’m rather tempted by.
There are two Nano slabs in the hamper in the flavours Salted Caramel and in Dark Fruit and Nut. I’m not a fan of dark chocolate but I’m sure I’ll find someone I can pass this on to. Salted caramel, on the other hand… yes please!
Lastly we have two bigger sized treats in the shape of a Christmas Pocket selection and a bag of Clementine Bombes. I like the idea of a few of the individual chocolates, to add a bit of variety to the selection and Celementine bombes sound just delicious! I think these are beautifully wrapped – In fact the whole hamper is.
I can’t imagine anyone I know would be disappointed with getting this for Christmas – Even if it does mean they have to share!
