If you have a friend or family member who likes their cacao treats light and decadently smooth, giving them some scrumptious white chocolate is sure to delight. And we have plenty of delicious options to choose from.

Perhaps you want to keep things simple and give your chocolate-loving recipient the chance to enjoy our signature white chocolate in its purest form. In that case, our White Chocolate Fingers would be perfect. Chunky sticks of delectable 36% cocoa butter white chocolate, these creamy batons are what every white chocolate lover’s dreams are made of.

However, if you want something a little more decadent, you may like to spoil them with our Simple White Chocolate Truffles Selector. With a classic whipped cream white chocolate filling that features a touch of vanilla, these truffles are little balls of melt-in-the-mouth happiness. Present these to a white chocolate lover and watch their face light up.

Gifts for dark chocolate lovers

We all know someone who loves dark chocolate, and who can blame them? With a delectably high cocoa content, our dark chocolate could tempt anyone to the dark side…

Featuring seventeen tantalising dark chocolates – including a Blackcurrant Bombe and a Chilli Praline – our Dark Signature box showcases the very best of our dark chocolate creations. It captures all the charm of a box of chocolates without forfeiting that intense cacao flavour that they love. Gifts don’t get any more exciting than this.

However, if you’re shopping for a dark chocolate purist, you may want to opt for something a little simpler. Our High Cocoa Baton Library gives them a whole chocolate tasting experience in one box! Featuring batons made from our Supermilk chocolate, our 70% dark chocolate and our 85% dark chocolate, the lucky recipient can sample our delectable high-content cocoa in its most immaculate form.

If you’re shopping for a traditionalist, you can’t go wrong with our Classic Hot Chocolate. Made with grated flakes of 70% dark chocolate, it balances the richness of cocoa with the creaminess of milk perfectly.

However, if you want to go for something a little more unusual, we have plenty of exciting flavours to choose from.

It’s a gift that will keep on giving every time they enjoy a steaming mug of hot chocolate.

Gifts for little chocolate lovers

It’s no secret that kids love chocolate! This is especially true when it comes to shaped chocolate and luckily for little ones, we feel the same! We get excited as soon as Christmas, Easter or any special occassion comes around. Why? Because we can’t resist an excuse to cast our chocolate into adorable festive shapes. You’ll find lots of love hearts around Valentine’s Day, plenty of bunnies and eggs at Easter, and a fantastic range of penguins, Santas and more at Christmas! The only problem? They’re so cute that you’ll want to keep them for yourself…

Gifts for vegan chocolate lovers

Nowadays we all have a vegan friend or family member. Knowing what chocolate is suitable can be a daunting task, can’t it? However, we’ve created a stunning range that makes buying for vegans simple and exciting.

Gifts for the chocolate lovers who have everything

Finding a gift for someone who has everything is always tricky. You can avoid hours of fruitless searching by treating them to an experience instead. For example, you can’t go wrong with our Chocolate Tasting Adventure. It’s an experience that allows guests to learn about chocolate, get a 10% discount, and take home a goody bag. You can’t go wrong with one of these as a gift for a chocolate lover who’s hard to buy for.

If you think your loved one would like something a little more hands-on, try a Bean to Bar Experience. Just like our Chocolate Tasting Adventures, guests gain insider knowledge of chocolate but also get to make their very own chocolate bar. Now isn’t that a dream come true for any aspiring chocolatier?

We even offer Children’s Chocolate Workshops, so if you’re buying for little ones, we’ve got you covered. Kids will learn all about chocolate in a fun and informative way and get to sample lots of it! After giving them this, there’s no doubt that you’ll be their new favourite person.
