Chocolate Gifts for Chocoholics

No I’m not talking about your everyday box of chocolates here, but chocolate gifts of the ‘ooh aah’ variety – the especially delicious, or hand made, or oversized and/or beautifully presented and quite possibly ridiculously expensive box/hamper of chocolates and chocolate gifts that any chocoholic will hold on tight to until the hoi polloi have left the premises.

Having said that I do consider Fortnum’s offering of the Q Oscar Niemeyer Box (currently unavailable) at £1,200 just a little over the top even for the most addicted chocoholic, but there are plenty of delectable options out there.

Delivery Dates:  If you’re ordering in time for Christmas you probably have two or three days to go, as most of these stores offer next day and/or courier delivery services.

There’s no doubt that these are gorgeous gifts for any serious chocoholic, except maybe for the chocolate pretzels, but after all you have to lighten it up a little sometimes, particularly at Christmas…..
