5 Times to Gift Chocolate

This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Chocolat Frey. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. But that also means attempting to figure out gifts for all sorts of people on your list. Yes, some people need thoughtful super personalized gifts – parents, loved ones, siblings, best friends. But then there are others who should get gifts but don’t need to take a lot of brain power when selecting gifts. For those people, chocolate is the answer. (Then again, when is chocolate not the answer.)


This year, for all those little gifts that need to be given, I’m opting for Chocolat Frey. These authentic Swiss chocolates, which come in a wide variety of flavors and shapes, are delicious. These chocolates also use GMO-Free cocoa beans, whole roasted nuts, milk, etc…  Plus, Chocolat Frey values sustainability. All the chocolate is UTZ certified, which means the company takes a careful approach to the environment and supports sustainable cocoa farming.

5 Times to Gift Chocolate:

1. Teachers – After wrapping up the second semester every teacher I know could use a big dose of chocolate, coffee and maybe a little alcohol too. By the time I finish grading exams on the 19th, I’ll be ready to leave school behind and totally disconnect for a couple weeks. For a teacher too, I’ll always welcome a bouquet of pens, markers, colored pencils, whiteboard markers, etc… Chocolate and pens – what more could a teacher ask for?


2. Mailman – These people are amazing. They deliver the mail daily – come rain, sun, snow, whatever. To me this is such a forgotten service. Giving a little gift to these people who serve us every day is a nice way to say thanks. For them, I’m keeping it simple, wrapping a couple bars of chocolate, attaching a thank you Christmas card and adding them to the mailbox along with my outgoing mail.


3. Garbage man – Just like the mailman (mailperson?), the garbage men render an amazing service to us weekly. What a thankless job, filled with other people’s refuse. For this gift, I put a variety of smaller chocolates in a gift box and placed them near the garbage can.

4. Hostess – This year, I will be bringing a bottle of wine and a collection of candy to every party hostess. Instead of wrapping it in the usual gift bag, or bringing it as is, I’m adding an element of interest by purchasing festive socks. One sock will be filled with chocolates and one will be filled with a bottle of red wine. Cute, simple, thoughtful, and still easy.



5. Students, kids play mates – I love the Frey reindeer. They come in vibrant colors and are sizable enough to gift as is. When I showed these to my niece and nephews they almost had more fun playing with the reindeer in their bright red, green and blue containers, than they did eating the candy.


Bonus: The best friend – For this gift, chocolate is just a little add on to the big gift. But what girl doesn’t want a little extra chocolate in her life?
