I don’t know you, but I am a gift freak, especially when talking about gift baskets.
DIY chocolate gift baskets are very easy to do. In the end, all you have to do is chose a decent quantity of chocolaty stuff, find a nice basket or box, and decorate. You can make chocolate gift baskets instead of buying them, and personalize your gift!

Italian recipes, travel, and culture

Simposio is an independent magazine about Italy. It aims to narrate Italy, the authentic one, describing it through its cuisine, places, lifestyle, and culture.

Each issue relates to an Italian city or region, to capture its essence and immense socio-cultural heritage.

Each item in this chocolate-themed gift basket is linked to Amazon, so you only have to click, save in your basket, review, purchase, and wait for delivery.

Cause let’s say it.

A day spent surrounded by beautiful (and in this case, delicious) stuff, ribbons, and gift tags is a day well spent. A day running around looking for stuff suitable for your idea, is not exactly a dream day.

Talking about dream days…Here’s, step by step, how you’re friend’s day might be if you realize this absolutely sinful chocolate gift basket idea.

  • Wake up and have a gourmet breakfast: there’s hot chocolate in the gift basket you received yesterday!

This is my favorite brand (made in England). Pick a flavor… or all of them!

  • Spread something delicious on rusks (or toasted bread):

{Venchi is THE chocolate brand for Italian foodies, right now}

  • Go for a nice walk in the city or at the park, and bring your own, gourmet, snacks (oh look, you’ve got those too, in your splendid chocolate gift basket):
  • Back home, have a light lunch (I mean, you are indulging a lot today :-))…

and then…

  • Sit on a couch with a soft blanket, a hot tea (chocolate flavored!) and a good book: heaven.
  • I can’t understand why… but some like coffee more than tea 🙂
  • Time for a super relaxing bath… guess the flavor!

Dinner and…

    • just another little treat before bedtime

That’s it! Give your chocolate gift basket to someone who’s worth the effort. Someone that will devour it in a day!!!
It can be a chocolate gift basket for Christmas, or for Mother’s day, for Valentine’s day, for a birthday, or as a thank you present.

Remember to Pin to your Christmas Board:

If you have any suggestion to integrate the list, let me know, I will check them and eventually add them!

Have a great, gourmet day, and enjoy making your own chocolate gift basket!
