Why Chocolate Makes a Great Holiday Gift

holiday chocolate gifts

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.

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.

Lighten the Mood with Dark Chocolate

Box of Dark Chocolates
Dark chocolate can be healthier than you think, while still being delicious.

As we get deeper into the first month of the new year, the natural question we ask others and ourselves is “what is your New Year’s resolution? Of the top ten New Year’s resolutions of Americans, according to statisticbrain.com, number four and five are “Enjoy Life to the Fullest” and “Stay Fit and Healthy” respectively. Americans seem intent on improving mental wellbeing, including thinking positively, laughing more, and enjoying life, and at the same time getting physically healthier, including reducing the signs of aging and decreasing the risk for cancer.

If only there was one thing, a magic ingredient, that can help achieve both mental and physical wellness goals. Could such an elixir actually exist?

The short answer is a resounding “Yes!”

Dark chocolate has recently been discovered to have a number of health benefits—both physical and mental. The basic ingredients of dark chocolate include cacao beans containing resveratrol, an antioxidant also found in red wine. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which are destructive molecules that are implicated in heart disease and other ailments. Free radicals are implicated in the aging process and may also be a cause of cancer, so eating antioxidant rich foods like dark chocolate can protect you from many types of cancer and slow the signs of aging.

Chocolates – The Ultimate Corporate Gift

Gift Towers - Great Gift IdeaWith the holidays fast approaching, companies often struggle to think of what gifts to send to their favorite vendors and customers to let them know how important they are. While chocolate is considered a standard in the industry, businesses should know that individualized offerings can add the right touch to any corporate gift.

Personalized Chocolate Notes

Many employees would likely opt for samplers when helping to decide what kind of chocolates to send out during the holiday season or ay any other time of year. While this ensures that most recipients will find something to snack oChocolates Personalized for Corporate Gifts Givingn or enjoy, the added touch of a chocolate note can help to ensure that your clients or customers know that you have them in mind. If you know certain clients’ employees like different things than writing out a few different messages can help to make it a business connection between people, rather than faceless business gift giving from high up the corporate ladder.

Solid Chocolate Letters

Milk Chocolate Letters Personalized ChocolatesStandard chocolate shapes help people identify which treats are which, but using solid chocolate letters as part of your corporate gift giving allows you to flex your creative muscles. Even a simple message such as a “Thank You” or “To A Great New Year” can stand out when written in the form of chocolate letters. However, going a step further and spelling out their corporate motto or some other client-specific phrase can provide a change of pace during the winter gift giving season.
