I’ve been on the look-out for the perfect gift idea and it’s not easy! I could go for a bottle of wine but what if they think I’m saying they’re a lush? You never know! A book? But I don’t know what they like to read. A voucher? Too impersonal and they have to do all the leg work. How about clothes? And risk getting the wrong size? I don’t think so.
But chocolate…now there’s a thought. Even better, a chocolate hamper. A man can’t go wrong with a chocolate hamper. It’s not too personal, not stepping over any lines, and it’s always well-received. Besides, who doesn’t like chocolate? A quick Google took me to the Ferrero Chocolate gifts site. Of course, for research purposes (ahem) I decided to try one of the Ferrero hampers out. The choice was incredible, ranging from the inexpensive Piccolo box to the grand-daddy of them all, the Grande Impression. I chose something in between and, sure enough, just a few clicks and a day later the Hat Box Hamper made its way to my door. In it were Ferrero Rocher Chocolates, Rondnoir Chocolates, Chocolatels from the Ferrero Collection and a personalised gift card. Talk about a kid at Christmas time!
Anyway, my verdict? Chocolate hampers are a winner, for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, even corporate gifts. They look great, taste great and, best of all, they’re perfect no matter who they’re for. And if wrapping’s not your strong point, they’ll do it for you. All you have to do is click on the paper of your choice and you’re done. Bonus! Best of all, a chocolate hamper is the ideal gift for everyone, whether they’re a dinner-party host, chief cook at the neighbourhood BBQ, a loved one, your boss, you name it. Sorted.
