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.

Mother’s Day Gift-Giving Traditions Around the World

Mother's Day, traditionsDid you know that Mother’s Day, which is now an internationally celebrated holiday, has its roots right here in Southeastern Pennsylvania?

It was a Philadelphia woman, Anna Jarvis, who is said to have made a promise at her mother’s gravesite that she would create a day during which all moms, both living and deceased, would be honored.

That was in May 1905. Less than a decade later, in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed into law a bill that declared the second Sunday of May an official U.S. holiday. And Mother’s Day was born.

Today, the concept of celebrating the unconditional love, support and strength of mothers is recognized all around the world. Naturally, our Mother’s Day gift-giving tradition at Stutz Candy usually involves a gorgeous gift basket or dark chocolate, shipped directly from Montgomery County.

But here’s how sons and daughters around the world choose to commemorate the May holiday:

Boxed Chocolates Gift Tower - Corporate Gift Gifing
A chocolate gift tower is a great way to stay in touch with friends, family or clients.

The new year often brings resolutions for how we will improve ourselves, take care of our bodies and better our lives. For many the focus is inward, on the person in the mirror. Yet January is also a great time to take those last minute gift ideas from December and make them into an out-of-season thoughtful gesture. Whether you start to think about friends, family or business associates, here are some ways that gift baskets and towers from Stutz Candy can provide a little smile during the coldest time of the year.

Last Minute Chocolate Gift Ideas

Hanukkah is over and Christmas is just around the corner, but corporate gifts and family presents still dominate many of our customers’ shopping lists for the next couple of weeks. While there are a number of do-it-yourself options for last minute chocolate gifts and other homemade delights, Stutz Candy wants to take the hassle out of giving this season.

Gift Baskets or Christmas Towers and PyramidsChocolate Gifts - Last Minutue Christmas Gift Ideas

Why make the holidays difficult when you can order a variety of chocolates and other treats all in one elegantly wrapped package? Stutz Candy offers three tier towers of a variety of chocolates from nut-based confections to ones with nougat and fruit centers. If you’re looking to go over the top, there are three Christmas periods: the Grand, Royal and Stutz that offer increasingly more tasty choices for your loved ones or lucky business associates.

We also offer gift boxes and baskets for corporate and personal presents to those you care about. These include a variety of treats from truffles to chocolate-covered pretzels to peanut brittle and more. Our customer service specialists are happy to work with you to find the right assortment for family members, friends and corporate partners. We want to ensure that your recipients enjoy our premier chocolate offerings and other gift ideas throughout the holiday season and into 2014.

Extraordinary Additions to Bundled Gifts

If you are looking to make sure that you have a personal touch on your presents, Stutz treat options can still bring a smile to a loved one’s face. Moms may enjoy the prospect of a day at the spa, subscriptions to a book-of-the-month club and more. Yet chocolates are a nice “opener” if the other gifts are subscriptions or items that recipients cannot use immediately. More importantly, as a small treat, family members can enjoy a chocolate covered pretzel or even some taffy and remember the whole package you got them for the holidays.

They also work well when it comes to business giving. Our variety of candies and other chocolate-based gifts appeal to most everyone in an office and complement a wide variety of corporate gift giving options.

Don’t Forget Your Furry FriendsHomemade Doggie Treats

Dogs and cats seem to have a preternatural ability to get underneath while their human parents are trying to hang decorations or move dishes around for family dinners. That is more of an effort to keep you company or “help” keep an eye on dishes that smell wonderful to dogs especially.

While children and loved ones are opening up presents, pets don’t need to feel left out. Stutz offers coated milk bones (chocolate-free, of course!) for a nice change of pace from the normal chew toys. Not only do you get to treat your pooches, but it certainly reduces the likelihood of Fido or Rover making off with tinsel and wrapping paper as you chase them across the house.

Shop Our Treats for Holiday Giving Ideas

Whether or not you have a lot of time or just a little bit to get your presents in order, take away some of the hassle and let Stutz Candy help you out with our chews, fudge, taffy and other treats for the ones you care about. Whether you are looking for an all-in-one present like a gift basket or something to complement another idea you had, our chocolatiers have been serving the greater Bucks, Montgomery and Philadelphia for five generations.

Perhaps more importantly for last minute gift ideas, Stutz Candy ships most orders within one full business day of receiving them via UPS or USPS Priority Mail to ensure that items get to you or your recipients as soon as possible. We’re looking forward to helping you add a bit of sweetness this holiday season.
