Put a smile on Grandad’s face this Father’s Day with cacao-rich chocolate gifts

It’s a time for families to come together and express their love and appreciation. While Dad certainly deserves a treat, you might like to offer a your Grandad a token of appreciation, too. Perhaps he’s the one who taught you how to ride a bike or whose jokes always make you chuckle. And what better way to show how much you care than with a thoughtful gift that brings joy?

From indulgent hot chocolate to luxury chocolate selection boxes, we have something to suit every taste and preference — cacao devotees and occasional chocolate nibblers alike. Discover our collection of chocolate Father’s Day gifts and find the ideal cacao treat to make your grandpa smile.

Choosing the perfect Father’s Day gift for your grandad

Wondering what to get Grandad for Father’s Day this year? If you’re looking for something a little more luxurious than socks, explore our collection of Father’s Day chocolate gifts for Grandpa. Not only do they offer a feast for the senses, but they are also made with ethically sourced cacao.

But which gift should you choose? We always think the best way to approach gifting is to think about the recipient’s likes and preferences. Consider the flavours and chocolate grades that Grandpa likes best. Read on for a bit of inspiration.

Gifts for the grandad who loves hot chocolate

Does your grandad like to unwind in the evening with a cosy hot chocolate? Maybe he likes to take a flask out with him on a hike or when he’s fishing. Either way, our hot chocolate range is sure to warm his heart and tantalise his taste buds.

Is he a fan of mellow milk chocolate? Then our Milky 50% Hot Chocolate will hit the spot. It’s got a higher cacao content than most milk chocolate, giving an irresistible depth of flavour. To crank the cacao factor up further, there’s our classic 70% Dark Hot Chocolate. Our special edition variety is presented in an elegant rose gold tin that Grandpa can reuse.

Alternatively, why not gift your grandad some more unique hot chocolate flavours this Father’s Day? Our Coconut White Chocolate is light yet satisfying with delicate tropical notes.You could also include his favourite hot chocolate toppings, maybe some marshmallows or chocolate flakes to take his hot cacao game to the next level. Pair it with a cosy mug or a Velvetiser for a complete gift that he’ll love to use again and again.

Hampers and chocolate boxes for flavour adventurers

Why not offer him the opportunity to try a variety of different chocolates? Let him indulge in truffles, caramels, pralines, and filled chocolates from across the Hotel Chocolat collection. Our chocolate hampers and chocolate gift boxes will give him plenty of recipes to try.

Our gift collections have been carefully curated by our chocolatiers to provide a truly satisfying tasting experience.

A gift card for cacao connoisseurs

If your grandad is a true cacao connoisseur with a discerning taste for high-quality chocolate, then a Hotel Chocolat Gift Card may be the perfect gift for him this Father’s Day. With a gift card, he can indulge in his favourite chocolate treats and discover new flavours and varieties that he may not have tried before. Plus, with a gift card, he can choose the perfect time and occasion to treat himself, making that gift can be all the more meaningful.

In addition to our selection of chocolate treats, our Experience Gift Cards offer the opportunity for your grandad to explore the world of chocolate-making. With our Bean to Bar chocolate-making classes, he can learn the art of tempering chocolate, creating truffles, and even making his own chocolate bars using our premium cocoa beans and tools. It’s a fun and interactive experience that will leave your grandfather with new skills and a deeper appreciation for the art of chocolate-making. 

Add a personalised touch with a message card

Looking to make this Father’s Day extra special for your grandad? Consider adding a personalised message card to his chocolate treats. Not only will it show your love and appreciation, but it will also create a unique keepsake that he can cherish. Customise the card with a heartfelt message, a favourite quote, or a special memory you both share. This can be a great way to add an extra layer of meaning, particularly if you’re sending your Father’s Day present in the post.
