Why Chocolate Makes a Great Holiday Gift

It’s late afternoon on Thanksgiving Day. Rather than relaxing at home, you and some of your family members have packed into the car and headed to your nearest big box store to snag that perfect holiday gift.

When the doors open at 6 p.m., you and a few hundred other people will file inside in hopes of getting an amazing deal on a new TV or video game system.

And as you trudge through the store on your way to the checkout line, you ask yourself “Why do we do this?”

Why indeed? We tend to advocate giving boxed chocolates at gifts and avoiding the Black Friday rush altogether. But then we started to wonder: “Why do people give gifts around this time of year?” and decided to do some research.

Making Mother’s Day Traditions with Stutz Candy

mother's day chocolateWe’ve been honoring our moms for centuries. The ancient Greeks and Romans held celebrations in praise of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele.

People in Europe used to observe something called “Mothering Sunday,” a day of appreciation for mothers that grew out of an early Christian tradition. Mothering Sunday eventually began to merge with the American Mother’s Day in the 1930s and 1940s.

(As we noted in last year’s Mother’s Day blog, it was Philadelphia’s Anna Jarvis, who sparked the idea for the American version of the holiday in 1908.)

It’s a big day. Mother’s Day — which falls on May 8 this year — is typically the busiest restaurant day of the year, and the day on which the most phone calls are made.

And while it’s nice to take your mom out to dinner (or at the very least, give her a call), we’d like to offer a few other ways to celebrate your mother this Mother’s Day.

12 Chocolate Treats for 12 Days of Christmas

Christmas chocolatesYou’ve probably heard the song “The 12 Days of Christmas,” but have you ever wondered how much you’d need to spend to buy all of those gifts?

PNC Wealth Management has. Since 1984, the bank has maintained The Christmas Price Index, which tracks the real world cost of everything mentioned in the song. This year, it was $34,130, or $155,407 if you assume the “true love” in the song was rebuying all the previous day’s gifts after the first day.

Your holiday budget is probably somewhat less than $34,000, which is why Stutz Candy is happy to recommend its own list of gifts for the next 12 days. (We realize the song is about the period after Christmas, but we have your shopping schedule to consider.)

We’ll add a new product every day – trying to keep with the number theme of the song whenever possible –so be sure to check back in again over the next two weeks. Enjoy!
