So it’s only 3 weeks to go until Christmas Day and hopefully you’re all hunting out the best bargains and buying some amazing stuff to keep them busy on the big day but if you are still thinking of things to buy, let me throw a couple of ideas your way and try to tempt you.
Chocolate is always a fabulous present to buy someone, whether it’s a thank you, an I love you or just because of who they are but Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the obligatory chocolate hamper crammed full.
Cadburys generally have a remarkable array of hampers on offer and Christmas is no exception. Taking a trip to Cadbury Gifts Direct leads you to a selection that would rival any would be Willy Wonka from Santa’s Bitesize Box for £7.50 right up to the Christmas Magic Hamper, there’s something to allow everyone to #unwrapjoy this year.
One such hamper is the Festive Favourites which I received which contains:
1 Christmas Snowman Selection Pack
1 box of Cadbury Dairy Milk Chunks Carton 166g
1 Heroes Carton 200g
1 Roses Carton 200g
1 bag of Snow Bites 100g
10 Freddo Popping Candy Chocolate Bars
The selection is quite delightful. Probably not one that I’d buy my Mum or friends of her age as with the Freddo and the Snow Bites they are more for children so a selection of bars, or indeed boxes of their best sellers would probably be best for them, but as a family box it’s a lovely selection. Snow Bites being iced milk chocolate balls, and Freddo Popping Candy Bars are a firm favourite with the kids of our family, with the Heroes being mine and Andy’s so there’s something for everyone. The bigger the hamper the more choice you have.
But it doesn’t stop there. You don’t only get a little gift card with message, the hampers are presented to you in a gorgeous Cadbury purple gift box so there’s no need to wrap it and if you’re ordering it online to send to someone direct, they’ll feel special opening it as it quite decadent.
Cadbury chocolate is one of the best selling chocolate in the world storming ahead of it’s rival Galaxy by Mars Confectionary 2-1. It’s clear to see it’s a household favourite. But you don’t have to spend a fortune on a gift to make someone happy. £18 will get you the Festive Favourites Hamper which is ample for me and Andy to get through Christmas as you get a taster of everything Cadbury are known for and for around £6.50 you can have the hamper delivered when you want it by choosing the date. Brilliant online service and big smiles when they’re received.
Green & Blacks also provide an online ordering service and yet again, a top quality selection of the finest luxury bars in hampers all supplied in lovely gift boxes. Their chocolate is a little more luxurious to Cadbury with a lot more flavours and textures from a £10 Chocolate Lovers Gift (Mini) to the £125 G&Bs Ultimate Chocolate Hamper and £3.95 for standard delivery (around 3-5 days).
The Chocolate Lovers Gift (Mini) is a really fab introduction to Green & Blacks confectionary and at £10 plus £3.95 delivery it doesn’t break the bank. It contains:
1 Green & Black’s Organic Treat Collection 90g (contains 6 different mini bars)
1 NEW Milk with Orange Chocolate Bar 100g
1 Dark 70% Chocolate Bar 35g
1 Milk with Butterscotch Chocolate Bar 35g
1 White Miniature Bar 15g
1 Dark 70% Miniature Bar 15g
1 Milk Miniature Bar 15g
Their chocolate is more of an after dinner treat. Big on flavours and textures, giving you a selection of unique and eclectic flavours like the new and gorgeous Blood Orange (which you get in a huge 100g bar with this gift box). It’s not as sickly sweet as an orange cream and doesn’t leave a bitter aftertaste like some other orange chocolate on the market. A couple of pieces of Green & Blacks is all you need really as it’s such excellent quality.
Both hampers were delivered by courier too so we received them the very next day after they were ordered – it’s just what you need when you order online. Put these on your shopping list as you’ll make someones day!
