How to Choose the Best Chocolate Gift Box for Chocolate Lovers

When you need a quick but thoughtful gift, chocolate is always a good choice. Sure, it's an old tradition, but it's a crowd favorite for a reason: almost everyone enjoys chocolate!. But with so many options, types and brands, how do you choose something that a real chocolate lover will appreciate?

The gift box you select should be one-of-a-kind and show that you care. You want to give them something they will remember long after their last bite.  Chocolate gift boxes are suitable for almost any occasion or holiday throughout the year, allowing you to express gratitude at any time of year!

Here are some things you may want to consider before choosing a chocolate box gift for someone:

Tastes and Preferences

Do they prefer dark chocolate or milk chocolate? Caramels or truffles?

Dark Chocolate

Our fondness for dark chocolate stems from its deep, dark cocoa flavors. Dark chocolate is the ideal way to get that cocoa hit without being too sweet for those who prefer the dark side. If you know a dark chocolate connoisseur, why not put their expectations of what constitutes a dark to the test and buy them something out of the ordinary?

Milk Chocolate

Milk chocolate is a childhood favorite that we all know and love. Milk chocolate is usually recognized as the most popular type of chocolate due to its light brown color, creamy texture, and sweet flavor. Spoil any milk chocolate lover in your life with our large variety of milk chocolate gifts! 


Following the French tradition, Max Brenner chocolate pralines are hand-made in the shape of relatively small cubes. These contain a cooked mixture of sugar, nuts and vanilla often ground to paste that is used as a chocolate or candy filling.


A chocolate truffle is a type of chocolate confectionery that is typically made with a chocolate ganache center that is completely covered in chocolate, cocoa powder, coconut, or chopped and toasted nuts (typically hazelnuts or almonds), and is usually shaped in a circular, conical, or curved shape.

Dietary Restrictions 

Is this person vegan or kosher? Do they have any allergies? Make sure you get them something they can actually eat and enjoy.
