Why Do People Think Chocolates Are A Good Gift Idea?

Posted by on

 Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, all holidays. What do they have in common? The fact that people always think chocolate is a great idea for a gift.


Birthday coming up? Chocolate is a good idea.


Is your friend sad or depressed? Chocolate will cheer them up.


Is your friend happy? Let’s celebrate with chocolate!


It doesn’t matter what the occasion is. Chocolate always seems like the best idea.


But why do people think chocolates are such a good idea?


Chocolate is versatile.


You can have…


  • Chocolate pie
  • Chocolate milk
  • Chocolate bars
  • Chocolate cakes
  • Chocolate soufflé
  • Chocolate cookies
  • Chocolate brownies
  • Chocolate-covered raisins
  • Chocolate-covered caramel
  • Chocolate-covered peanuts
  • Chocolate-covered strawberries
  • Chocolate-covered marshmallows
  • Chocolate-covered anything basically


Chocolate is the most versatile food substance in the history of the universe.


The amount of combinations with chocolate is endless. You can mix chilli and chocolate, sea salt and chocolate, tea and chocolate, honeycomb and chocolate.


Just check out some of the varities that Love Cocoa has. You can do some truly extraordinary things with chocolate.


Chocolate’s versatility means that basically everyone is bound to love at least one variety of chocolate. There is always something for everyone.


This is why people think chocolates are a good idea for any celebration. If you get your loved ones a chocolate gift box, you can’t go wrong!


Chocolate brings you back to childhood.


Remember those crisp October nights when you went from house to house dressed as a pumpkin and yelling, ‘Trick or treat!’?


Then you’d go back home, empty your hoard, and spend the entire night making yourself sick from gorging on mountains of chocolate.


Or what about those Christmasses where you’d hang chocolate decorations on the tree? Family members gave you gift boxes of chocolate and there was always a delicious chocolate pudding for dessert.


And who could forget birthdays? When I was ten my parents gave me a huge chocolate birthday cake. When I blew out the candles, guess what I wished for? More chocolate!


Chocolate wasn’t just part of holidays as a kid. It was part of everything: trips to Disney Land, the cinema, or even just going over to Gran and Grandad’s house. Chocolate was our childhoods.


So when you give the gift of chocolate, you’re giving the gift of sending that person back to the good parts of their childhood. You’re letting them be a kid again. That’s why chocolate is a good idea.


Chocolate also speaks to our mature side.


I’ll be the first to admit I don’t have a very big mature side. But I do still enjoy the finer things in life.


Like you, I enjoy classic movies, red wine, going to the theatre, and curling up with a good book.


Just because chocolate takes us back to our childhoods doesn’t mean that it can’t fit into that picture.


Chocolate is absolutely one of the most refined pleasures in the world. And it’s available to everyone!


We all love a good slab of milk chocolate but there is a separate skill set involved in appreciating a really good quality dark chocolate, like Love Cocoa’s 70% Ecuador.


There’s sophistication in appreciating blends of different complimentary flavours in chocolate. Love Cocoa’s English Mint, Earl Grey, and Maldon Sea Salt all appeal to our mature tastes.


Chocolate isn’t just a good idea. It’s the best idea.


When you consider how incredibly versatile chocolate is, how widely loved it is, how it can bring you back to the innocence and wonder of childhood but also speak to your mature side, it’s no wonder that people think chocolates are a good idea.


But I, for one, think chocolates are the best idea.


Wouldn’t you agree?

Disappointed with the delivery

I bought the chocolate bars as a gift as I had bought some at an earlier time, although I like the idea of it. It was disappointing for my friend to not have received the next day. If I was guaranteed next day delivery I would order again.

Thanks for your feedback Yvonne, is really useful. We try and keep our product as affordable as possible offering 1st Class Royal Mail for free (over £15). Since we emailed we have now added a next day guaranteed delivery option and charge cost price for this service.
Subscription v Retail

James something to be aware of: I can buy three bars for £12 in my local wine shop ( Therapy of Wine )
Same thing only costs me 1p less through my subscription.....

Thanks for your feedback Robert. Unfortunately at the moment we have to charge postage on the subscriptions under 15 pounds. We will try and create more subscription options which will avoid this postage charge.
80th Birthday Gift for a Quaker

The gift was very well received and the whole family enjoyed the experience of 'cadbury' chocolate. Beautifully packaged and delivered with no fuss.

Thanks for lovely review Lea, glad the chocolate bars were well received gift :)
Sea salt 70% Dark Chocolate Bar

Found it to be a crisp & tastey bar. Tends to bring out the cocoa. Never tried this taste before but would purchase again.

Glad you liked this John. The Sea Salt is our favourite bar and is up for an award :)
Chocolate Heaven

The chocolate is absolutely amazing. I think when you read the ingredients list and learn about the refined sugar-free element you possibly prepare your mind for an inferior but healthier alternative. This blew my expectations out the water. This is hands down most of the most elite, superior and exquisite chocolates I have ever tasted. So pure, so creamy and the flavours options are insane. I also sampled to 70% Ecuadorian which was unbelievably creamy and like nothing I have ever tasted. I will definitely be back for more. Please, Please, Please enter this for some of the industry awards. This should definitely be celebrated!

Thanks very much for the review Ryan, glad you liked the chocolate!
