Gift Ideas Gifts

Surprise your co-workers in the best way possible — with the gift of luxury chocolate

Gifting in the workplace can be difficult. When you’re browsing for your nearest and dearest, you usually know what they’d like (or if you’re lucky, they tell you). That’s why when we’re choosing gifts for colleagues and clients, we follow a helpful rule — it should be sophisticated, high-quality, and suitable for most tastes. This way, you can easily ensure your gift remains professional, reflects well on your company, and is sure to delight any recipient.

At Hotel Chocolat, we believe our luxurious, ethical chocolates, coffees, and tipples make superb workplace presents. To make your gifting a little easier, here are our favourite corporate gifts for clients, colleagues, and employees…

Thank you gifts for clients

Firstly, let’s look at treating your all-important business clients. If you want to win over a new client or show an existing one how much you appreciate them, go for a grand and generous gesture. A bountiful cabinet or hamper packed with luxurious, melt-in-your-mouth truffles and chocolates is the perfect token of thanks and loyalty.

Our hampers are packed with a wide range of chocolate grades and flavours to ensure there’s always something for everyone…

The Classic Cabinet

The Classic Cabinet is a two-tier showcase of our most-loved chocolate recipes. It’s a fabulous selection of 59 filled and solid chocolate and biscuits in our delectable white, milk, and dark high-cacao chocolate. Immaculately presented in a sleek black box, this cabinet oozes elegance — ideal for sharing around head office.

Best for: Sealing the deal with a new client. A standout gift.

The Chocolate & Fizz Collection

Searching for the perfect celebratory hamper? Look no further than our Chocolate & Fizz Collection, brimming with a miniature bottle of our boutique Prosecco, Champagne Truffles, and more delectable chocolates. Perfectly wrapped in a classic black box and adorned with a simple white bow.

Best for: An end-of-year thank you gift for your clients. Perhaps marking an anniversary of your time working together. Ideal for gifting to one individual (perhaps the boss, CEO, or the person you liaise with the most).

Leaving gifts for colleagues

Secondly, what about the team? It’s never easy to say goodbye to a fabulous work colleague. Still, if your colleague is leaving for a new opportunity, seize the chance to wish them well with a wonderful gift. Now is the time to thank them for all their hard work in the most show-stopping way.

These are our favourite thank you gifts for colleagues:

The Chocolate & Gin Gift Collection

Our Chocolate & Gin Gift Collection brings together our gorgeous gin-flavoured chocolates with our small-batch, cacao-infused gin. Perfect for a colleague who might fancy marking their last day with little tipple. They’ll enjoy two mini bottles of our Cocoa Gin, Supermilk Batons, Gin Truffles, and Dark Almonds — neatly packed inside a chic black box.

And if they don’t drink? No problem. Our no dark chocolate, no alcohol Mellow Curated Collection is a heavenly alternative. They’ll adore our Chocolate Macarons, Patisserie Selector, and more chocolate goodies.

Best for: If you’re gifting individually. A personal token of appreciation.

The Chocolatier’s Table

With our standout Chocolatier’s Table, you just need to know that your giftee adores chocolate. This one’s guaranteed to delight any chocolate lover. This is an extensive collection of our best white, milk, and dark chocolate creations. Upon opening the box, they’ll see an artistic array of different colours and textures.

Looking for a gift with a mix of treats? Our All Things Cacao Collection is a another great option and includes a range of delectable chocolates, our Velvetised™ Chocolate Cream, and heavenly Rabot 1745 skincare products.

Best for: When your co-workers are chipping in for a group gift. Just add a gift card signed by the whole team.
