Finding Christmas gifts for chocolate lovers and chocoholics has never been easier! These holiday gift ideas for people who love chocolate range from chocolate tea to chocolate bubble bath (which, frankly, grosses me out — but I know chocoholics who love their choco-bath).
Before the tips, a quip:
“Giving chocolate to others is an intimate form of communication, a sharing of deep, dark secrets.” ~ Milton Zelman.
It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a Christmas gift for your lover, or friend who is a chocolate lover — you’re communicating on a whole new level! A gourmet chocolate gift basket, such as the Best of Ghirardelli Gift Basket, is a good holiday gift idea. It’s not all that creative, but it offers a wide variety of chocolate samples. Perfect for the chocoholic who loves to sample different types of chocolate.
And, here are several more (and more creative!) gift giving tips for chocoholics…
Christmas Gifts for Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics
Most important tip: find out if your chocoholic loves dark, milk, or white chocolate. “In the beginning, the Lord created chocolate, and He saw that it was good. Then He separated the light from the dark, and it was better.” This anonymous quip reveals the importance of dark versus white versus milk chocolate! I love dark chocolate, and won’t eat white chocolate. I don’t even like white chocolate chips in my chocolate cookies. Milk chocolate is fine…but dark chocolate is my true love. Before you buy a Christmas gift for your chocoholic, find out what kind of chocolate she loves best.
Chocolate mint tea. I’m sipping a cup of Stash Chocolate Mint Oolong Tea right now. It’s the first time I’ve tried chocolate mint tea, and it’s incredible. It contains zero fat and smells like rich dark chocolate — a combination that makes it the perfect chocolate beverage.
Chocolate aromatherapy. How about a gift of chocolate — without the calories? “Chocolate is said to produce the same europhic feelings as those experienced during sex, so chocolate combined with aromatherapy is the ultimate indulgence!” says Sharon Falsetto, who created her own Chocolate Shop. “Using true cocoa butter, with the added ingredients of essential oils, there are true aromatic and therapeutic benefits from chocolate aromatherapy. Cocoa butter is also good for the skin; used correctly and with true aromatherapy ingredients, ‘chocolate’ really is beneficial in aromatherapy!”
Personalized chocolates, with photos and names. A unique Christmas gift for your chocolate lover are Personalized M&M’S®. The Mars chocolate experts will put photos, phrases, and names on their little chocolates. If you have a photo of your loved one, you can put the image on the chocolate with something like “Merry Christmas, I love you!” And, M&M’s last a long time – so your loved one can savor this present for months, or even years.
Gift card or gift certificate to a local gourmet chocolate shop. Give me a gift certificate to Purdy’s Chocolates, and I’m yours forever! A great Christmas gift for chocoholics is a trip to a chocolate shop, and the freedom to choose whatever you want without worrying about the pricetag. Find a local, unique, creative chocolate shop in your area, buy a small item, and give it along with a $20 gift card to your chocolate lover.
