If you tell me that there's not a single chocoholic on your holiday shopping list, I'm going to have to call you a liar. Everyone knows at least one — they may be a closet fiend, but they're on your list — and luckily, they're easy to shop for. You could rush out and buy them a box of generic sweets, but why stop there? Why not put a little thought behind your gift? No time? Well, no worries, I've rounded up a bunch of gifts that would be perfect for the chocoholic in your life. You could test their knowledge with Chocolate Smarts, a set of 60 cards with facts, tips, and chocolate techniques. Or, if you'd rather satiate their sweet tooth, surprise them with Hotel Chocolat's Cool Yule Goody Bag or a set of Theo's 3400 Phinney Bars. Looking for more? Scroll through for several other chocoholic gift options.
In honor of the $25,000 dinner, I thought I'd find some extravagant, over-the-top Valentine's finds.
To start things off, Alizé Rose has commissioned a handful of expensive limited edition Valentine's Day Alizé bottles. Each handmade bottle took over 100 hours to create and is completely covered in authentic Swarovski crystals. It will cost you approximately $2000 a bottle, but don't worry there's already a two month waiting list, so you've got some time to save.
Next on the list is a fun kit from Wiseman House chocolates. Their Perfect Evening kit includes a luxury bathrobe, a Chris Botti CD (talk about cliché!), a Cocoa Fleur chocolate scented candle and the Wiseman House Chocolates Love Letter collection. The Love Letter collection features a delectable selection of romantic chocolates and an excerpt from a century old love letter. The Perfect Evening kit is available for a pricey $175, but the chocolates alone will only set you back $38.
