Chocolate Gift Ideas for the Chocoholic will help you pick that perfect present for those that have a fondness for cocoa, even if that someone is you.
“Chocolate is the first luxury. It has so many things wrapped up in it: Deliciusness in the moment, childhood memories, and that grin-inducing feeling of getting a reward for being good.” – Mariska Hargitay
Chocolate is the one thing that makes most people happy, so why not center your gift-giving around this amazing treat?

It’s a group where we share recipes, pictures of things that leave you in awe, and ideas on how to make your life just a little bit more snug. Join here to be part of the virtual cozy cabin.
Here are the Chocolate Gift Ideas for the Chocoholic:
1) Hot Chocolate
Hot Cocoa is the perfect gift to warm anyone’s heart. There are several different ideas along this path.
You could make your own gourmet hot coco mix and put it in a cute container. This idea added cookies and a cute little bottle-brush tree to the mix.
You could also add a cookbook to go with the theme. Hot Chocolate Comfort: 50 Recipes for Comforting Cups of Comfort would make a nice companion.
2) The Candy Maker.
Does your friend love to spend time in the kitchen? Get her started on making her own chocolate candies with gourmet chocolate bars, a candy-making book and candy molds.
3) Chocolate flowers.
There’s a flower farm on Whidbey Island that sells only chocolate flowers. You read that right – chocolate flowers – real ones.
