People who love chocolate can never get enough. These gift ideas for chocolate lovers range from bubble bath to aromatherapy to chocolate mint tea (my personal favorite, because of the lack of fat!).
First, here’s a quip for your chocoholic’s gift card:
“Make a list of important things to do today. At the top of your list, put “eat chocolate.” Now, you’ll get at least one thing done today.” ~ Gina Hayes.
True chocoholics don’t just want to eat chocolate, they want to bathe in it. Pictured is a Feeling Smitten Bath Bomb – Mint Condition – perfect for chocoholics who want to soak in chocolate bubbles and experience chocolate aromatherapy.
While a Heart Shaped Chocolate Truffle Assortment from Olde Naples Chocolate isn’t exactly the most creative chocolate gift idea, it is beautiful and delicious.
Or you could sign your gift recipient up for a Heavenly Chocolate of the Month Club, so he or she gets a different gourmet chocolate gift every month!
Before deciding on the best chocolate gift for your chocoholic, find out if she prefers dark, milk, or white chocolate. Me, I’m a dark chocolate fan. With that in mind, here’s another chocolate quip for your gift card:
“In the beginning, the Lord created chocolate, and He saw that it was good. Then He separated the light from the dark, and it was better.” ~ anonymous.
This quip reveals the importance of dark versus white versus milk chocolate! I love dark chocolate, and won’t eat white chocolate. I don’t even like white chocolate chips in my chocolate cookies. Milk chocolate is fine…but dark chocolate is my true love.
So, before you buy a gift for the chocolate lover in your life, find out which kind of chocolate he or she loves best.
Gift Ideas for Chocolate Lovers
Chocolate aromatherapy. How about a gift of chocolate — without the calories?
“Chocolate is said to produce the same europhic feelings as those experienced during sex, so chocolate combined with aromatherapy is the ultimate indulgence!” says aromatherapist Sharon Falsetto, who created her own Chocolate Shop. “Using true cocoa butter, with the added ingredients of essential oils, there are true aromatic and therapeutic benefits from chocolate aromatherapy. Cocoa butter is also good for the skin; used correctly and with true aromatherapy ingredients, ‘chocolate’ really is beneficial in aromatherapy!”

Chocolate mint tea. I’m sipping a cup of Stash Chocolate Mint Oolong Tea as we speak. It’s the first time I’ve tried chocolate mint tea, and it’s incredible. It contains zero fat and smells like rich dark chocolate — a combination that makes it the perfect chocolate beverage.
Chocolate Teas on Amazon
Personalized chocolates with photos and names. A unique chocolate gift idea is Personalized M&M’S®. The Mars chocolate experts will put photos, phrases, and names on their little chocolates. If you’re giving chocolate to your mom on Mother’s Day, for instance, find a great photo of her and put it on the chocolate with something like “To the Best Mother Ever – I Love You!” M&M’s last a long time – so your mom can savor this present for months or even years.
A personalized chocolate cake is good, too — a friend once gave me a chocolate cake with two photos of me laid into the icing. I’ll never forget that gift of chocolate!
Chocolate fountain. If you or your chocolate lover haven’t experienced a 2 or 3 Tier Chocolate Fountain, then you haven’t lived!
The last time I indulged in a chocolate fountain was for a New Year’s Eve party. It’s a blast, but it can get sickeningly sweet. Make sure you have non-sweet items to dip in the fountain: low-fat crackers, pretzels, apples, bananas, etc. Items like marshmallows, lollipops, ju jubes, gummy bears, and other sweet treats are too sweet for the gift of a chocolate fountain.
Gift card or gift certificate to a local gourmet chocolate shop. Give me a gift certificate to Purdy’s Chocolates, and I’m yours forever! A great Mother’s Day gift idea is a trip to a chocolate shop, and the freedom to choose whatever you want without worrying about the pricetag. Find a local, unique, creative chocolate shop in your mom’s neighborhood, buy a small or big piece of chocolate, and gift it along with a $20 or $50 gift card.
Chocolate Bubble Bath and Soap Gift Baskets. Here’s what your chocoholic has been waiting for all her life: Espresso Chocolate Bath & Shower Bubbles. Can you imagine soaking in a tub of lightly scented chocolate bubbles? I can’t. It grosses me out, actually! But to each her own…
I’d prefer a gourmet dark chocolate gift basket, such as the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Tower. It’s not all that creative, but it offers a wide variety of chocolate samples. Perfect for the chocoholic who loves to sample different types of chocolate.
