All I really need is love... but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt!
Lucy Van Pelt in Peanuts
by Charles M. Schulz
gifts of chocolate is a tradition steeped in world history.
In 1615 Princess Anna of Austria gave a chocolate drink to her
new husband, King Louis XIII. In 1900, Queen Victoria gave a gift of specially
molded chocolates to the British troops fighting the Boer War in South Africa.
Giving chocolate gifts is a long-time Christmas tradition, and is also a perfect hostess gift. Your host will be thrilled as you present a lovely box of delicious chocolates as you enter the party.
you receive chocolates as a hostess gifts, it's ok to open the box immediately
for everyone to share, or you can keep the little goodies all for yourself. When in doubt, ask the giver what they think.
also smart to keep a few extra boxes to give as gifts to unexpected
guests. If someone brings a gift you did not expect,
you will have a nicely wrapped box of chocolates to give in return.
can ship boxed chocolates or candy to friends and family anywhere in the
world! Why stand in line at the post office, when so many companies will
ship for you!!
Or give them chocolate all year long with a Chocolate of the Month Club
like giving gifts that my loved ones can hold,
examine, ponder, and unwrap. When I am giving a flat-paper gift,
such as concert tickets or a gift card, I like to attach the envelope to a box of chocolates.
I then, of course, encourage them to share their gift with the rest of us!
boxes of chocolate
Simply print each guests name on a small piece of paper, and apply the name tag to the box with ribbon or double-stick tape.
Place the delicate gift box at the center of each place setting, a perfect favor for your Christmas dinner party.
You could send each guest home with a small box of chocolates as a party favor.

Chocolate is very sensitive to temperature
and humidity. Ideal storage temperatures are between 15 and 17 °C (59
to 63 °F), with a humidity of less than 50%. Chocolate should be generally
stored away from other foods as it can absorb aromas. Ideally, chocolates
should be packed or wrapped, and placed in proper storage with the correct
humidity and temperature.
is always a welcome gift for choco-holics...
