Chocolate as a gift can be trite, especially when it didn’t involve any thought or consideration for whether the gift recipient actually likes chocolate or the particular kind of chocolate selected. As a specific kind of chocoholic myself, I hide a shudder when I’m gifted white chocolate or chocolate with mystery nougat. To be gracious, I don’t say anything but thank you of course, but it’s a very different reaction to my jump for joy at a box of chocolates that contains a variety of delicious toffees, nuts, or caramel.
One lesson I’ve learned about gifting chocolates: when in doubt, ask them what their favorites are! Mysteries serve no one. From there, this list can help you find the perfect personal gift of chocolate.
