Give the gift of chocolates this festive season

Celebrate Deepavali this year with the art of gifting — and what could be a sweeter gift than the perfect box of chocolates?

The festive season is here… and just in time for the lockdown to be lifted! In the spirit of Deepavali, sweet treats for loved ones are in order. Plus, it would be nice to be able to deliver these gifts in person again, especially after the endless periods of lockdown.

Chocolates are usually the best way to go with sweet gifts. They’re the perfect gift for pretty much every occasion, and they are the best form of ‘affordable luxury’ you can get — the taste of these treats is a sumptuous indulgence for anyone who receives it.

If you’re looking for the perfect box of chocolates to give your family and friends, we’ve got you covered. We’ve put together a list of chocolatiers from which you might find the ideal sweet gifts.

Chocolate Concierge’s assortment of chocolates is perfect for the health-conscious, as they operate a strictly vegetarian kitchen. The dark chocolate bars and brittles are vegan, and some of their chocolates are made from coconut ‘milk’ and don’t contain any dairy. Chocolate Concierge also offers sugar-free bars that use maltitol, a naturally occurring carbohydrate, as a sugar substitute because it does not promote tooth decay, and has a lesser effect on blood glucose. If you’re looking for a healthy option of chocolates, this is our pick for you.
