Chocolate is one of the only Christmas gifts that’s universally accepted. Whether you’re shopping for your family, friends, secret Santa or that one person who has everything, chocolate is almost guaranteed to delight.
We partnered with French chocolatier Jeff de Bruges to put together our ultimate Christmas chocolate gift guide as well as some insider tips for buying the best.
Embrace ‘Old School’
Think fruit pastes and marshmallow.
Nothing is worse than poor quality chocolate; it may be slightly more expensive to buy, but the difference in taste is more than worth it.
Don’t stick to the standard flavours, shake things up by choosing chocolates that are infused with candied orange, biscuit and nuts.
Don’t feel like you need to opt for delicate truffles or bite-sized treats when choc-shopping. Consider buying your favourite flavours in a bar or block – it just means there’s more to share around!
