The search for the perfect gift can certainly be daunting. The idea is, of course, to find something that the person will actually enjoy. Thus, when looking for the perfect gift, pass up mundane gifts, and give the exciting gift of a chocolate gift basket.
Chocolate Gift Basket Ideas
Chocolate gift baskets can be purchased for a variety of different reasons. As such, if one does not want to make one’s own, there are a variety of different chocolate gift basket ideas to choose from.
The key to any chocolate gift basket is the basket or other type of holder that the gift basket comes in. More decorative chocolate gift baskets can be used as home decorations later on. For example, there is a chocolate gift basket that comes in a hand painted decoupage metal planter.
A nice gift basket to give to a coworker is one entitled “Caramel Knowledge.” This small gift basket comes with Lindt Lindor assorted truffles, a Ghiradelli milk chocolate with almonds bar, Malto Bella toffee chocolate malt balls, Cocoa Amore chocolate truffle hot cocoa, and a Lindt dark chocolate bar. This all comes in a bamboo woven basket, which, after the chocolate is eaten, is a lovely addition to an office desk.
There is an excellent chocolate gift basket for those who are romantics and have a love of Shakespeare. This basket, entitled “Romeo’s Basket,” comes with such delectable chocolate treats as La Tempesta biscotti with crispy almond and hazelnut slices, Harry London white truffle fudge pretzel joys, and Sconza Mocha toffee almonds. The basket itself is a lovely wooden box that would be ideal for jewelry.
Lastly, for those people who hope to impress their boss with a nice chocolate gift basket, there is a gift basket entitled the “Executive Sweet.” This basket comes with such treats as shortbread cookies, darn chocolate almond candy bars, and biscotti. Perhaps the most stunning feature of this gift is the basket itself, a medium-sized handmade wooden trunk (about the size of a larger jewelry box), trimmed with bamboo with a mahogany stain.
These are but a few of the many gift baskets that one can purchase on the internet. One can also find a great chocolate gift basket at a local chocolate store or bakery. The fun thing about chocolate gift baskets is that they can be quite expensively ornate, or just inexpensively simple. Either way, they make for wonderfully delicious gifts.
