A Guide to Christmas Gifting

A Guide to Christmas Gifting

Christmas is the perfect time to bring family and friends together to enjoy fun, festive traditions. From putting your favourite Christmas playlist on repeat, to setting an impressive dinner table, complete with candles and decorations, to cooking that huge turkey to perfection for all your guests... It’s the time for giving, lots of laughter, and creating new memories with your loved ones.

Whilst some traditions are less enjoyable (which teenagers do you know that love to sing Christmas carols?!), there is one that's loved universally: the over-indulgence in chocolate!

It’s the only time of year you can devour one guilt-free chocolate after another; washed down with a heavenly hot chocolate, topped with lashings of whipped cream, marshmallows, and sprinkles (and maybe something alcoholic for extra warmth).

Without chocolate, Christmas really wouldn’t be complete. But where do you start when there’s so much to choose from?! Of course, the supermarket shelves are stacked from top to bottom at this time of year – yet you can’t help but think “where’s the thought in that?”. Another standard box of chocolates just won’t do. Christmas is a special occasion, and you want your gifts to reflect the magic of the season.

So, if you need a helping hand with choosing the perfect chocolate gifts, here’s our Seasonal Gifting Guide.


Gift Sets

Sourcing the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be a time-consuming task. It can be a bit of a killjoy for your Christmas spirit to say the least! We want to put the joy back into Christmas shopping. So, from various dietary requirements (vegan, vegetarian, dairy free), to gift wrapping, and getting your presents delivered – we’ve got it all covered.

For chocolate-sharing experiences that'll make even the biggest of Scrooges crack a smile, discover our beautiful boxed gift sets. From The Christmas Eve Sharing Set to our new Christmas Treat Gift Set, these luxury gift sets are brimming full of scrumptious hot chocolate and chocolate treats that are perfect for everyone (and for yourself too – we know they look too good to share!).

All our chocolate sets come presented in sleek, reusable gift boxes, which securely snap closed with a magnetic lid. Each box is handtied with a ribbon to make them perfect gifts, with no need for additional wrapping (you’re welcome)!

There’s no better way for your loved ones to enjoy Christmas Day than to unwind from the chaos of unwrapping presents and enjoy a peaceful moment with a melt-in-the-mouth chocolate treat. They will be sure to thank you for it!

If you'd love to experience some of the blissful relaxation before Christmas, and tick everyone off your list in one go, you can do just that here at Cocoba. With our Multiple Address Sending Service, you can buy for everyone (friends, grandchildren, neighbours), all at the same time, in one simple order. Add all your gifts to your basket, choose the address each should go to, add an optional gift note for each recipient, and have their gifts delivered straight to their doors in time for Christmas. How's that for a Christmas miracle!?

Stocking Fillers

While sweet treats are always a safe go-to when it comes to stocking fillers, perhaps you’d like something a little more unique this year?

A little goes a long way, which was precisely our thinking in creating our adorable Stocking Fillers this year. Our heart-warming festive characters are simple yet effective in spreading the seasonal spirit, and can be found beaming their friendly little grins on both our Christmas Character Hot Chocolate Spoons and Christmas Tree Hangers. Whatever the recipient's age, these sweet little gifts are delightfully delicious.

With the popularity of our festive characters in mind, we decided to branch out (pun intended!) and add to our cute character collection with new Christmas Character Hot Chocolate Bombes. Loaded with micro-marshmallows, these Belgian chocolate bombs blend smoothly into hot milk to create a gorgeous mug of hot chocolate that's a perfect balance of warmth and Christmas cheer.

Available in packs of three or as single boxes, choose between luscious Belgian milk chocolate and creamy Belgian white chocolate. Is your mouth watering yet?

These will also be great little gifts for Secret Santa surprises and Christmas hampers too. Our selection of fillers are ideal for adding a sweet treat to make-your-own hampers, or as a thoughtful surprise to be tucked into someone's desk drawer in the office. However you choose to gift these sweet little surprises, they're sure to be adored.

Vegan, Vegetarian and Dairy-Free Gifts

Long gone are the days where people thought of all vegans as hippies and tree huggers, and the only vegan you’d know was your eccentric third-cousin once removed. Today, we’re very glad to say that veganism is in the mainstream and it’s here to stay.

It's no surprise at Cocoba that the demand for vegan chocolate is greater than ever; but what we don’t understand is why so much of it still tastes, quite frankly, horrible. Our expert chocolatiers have experimented with a variety of vegan ingredients, and have tried and tested each and every product to achieve the perfect vegan alternatives to milk chocolate, white chocolate, and of course, dark chocolate too. We have even searched the globe to find the fluffiest, tastiest vegan marshmallows – and we’re glad to report we found them!

Explore our Vegan Gifts range to discover our beautiful, handmade collection of chocolate gifts ideal this Christmas for vegans, vegetarians, and dairy-free friends alike.

For an exceptional surprise, discover our Vegan Christmas Treat Gift Set - featuring our Great Taste Award-winning Vegan Hot Chocolate Bombes, a Santa-topped vegan hot chocolate spoon and Christmas Santa tree hanger, as well as a 'milk' chocolate bauble with vegan marshmallows, and classic Cocoba mug. This special selection includes the ideal amount for sharing with loved ones, or it can even be enjoyed by one over the festive period for the ultimate vegan-friendly indulgence.

Expanding our vegan-friendly festive range so that no one feels left out, are our adorable Vegan Christmas Character Hot Chocolate Bombes containing a tasty assortment of flavours, as well as vegan-friendly marshmallows. Without any compromise in quality, these scrummy treats make a beautiful gift to be enjoyed throughout the holiday season.

If that still doesn't settle your mind when it comes to choosing the right present, a Gift Card is always a safe bet. Not only do they remove any risk of buying something your recipient won't like (although let's be honest, who doesn't like chocolate?), but they give your loved ones the complete freedom of choice to indulge in whichever chocolate nibbles or hot chocolate treats take their fancy! From £10 to £100, explore our range of Gift Vouchers here and rest assured knowing there shall be no grumpy faces at the dinner table this Christmas.
