You can never go wrong with alcohol gifts. Unless, of course, the person you intend to give it cannot drink alcohol for some reason or other. But if the most important women in your life can (and do) enjoy their libations, then you’re good to go.
Champagne makes for an especially amazing gift. It’s perennially popular, so even if the woman you’re giving it to won’t drink it right away, they can always pop the cork when they feel like it in the future. But what makes a bottle of bubbly even better is a box of chocolates to go with it. The chocolate’s sweetness and notes of bitterness are perfectly balanced by the champagne’s light fizz. What’s more, these two products are indulgences that women deserve to enjoy for all their hard work.
If you don’t know where to start, we have a guide on different champagne and chocolate pairings to give to the different women in your life.
Mums—they are probably the most important woman in a lot of people’s lives. Your mom gave birth to you, raised you, bathed and clothed you, fed you, took care of you while you were sick—her role in your life is endless. If you’re married, she was probably the first one with wet eyes when you said, “I do.” Every time you have relationship woes, she’s usually the person you turn to for advice.
With all the things she’s done for you, the Bollinger La Grande Annee and Chocolates Hamper is a grand gift she deserves to receive. This hamper contains a 75-cl bottle of the aromatic Bollinger Grande Annee, Vintage Rosé, 2007 that blends 72 per cent Pinot Noir and 28 per cent chardonnay. It also comes with not one but two boxes of chocolates: a 42g mini box of Guylian Seahorses and a 175g box of Belgid’Or Fine Belgian Chocolates, giving your mum’s taste buds a reason for celebration.
Sibling relationships can be complicated, especially when you have a sister. Maybe your elder sister was the one who shattered your belief in Santa or lied and jokingly told you that you were adopted. Maybe you have a younger sister you couldn’t shake off wherever you would go or who told mum that you broke her antique vase. And maybe you cut the heads off her dolls or stuck bubblegum to her hair in retribution.
All these things don’t matter because they’re in the past. And at the end of the day, you love your sister anyway. So, give her a gift that represents your roller-coaster kind of love for each other. Consider sending her a Krug Grande Cuvee Hamper together with the Chocolate Express Hamper.
The champagne hamper contains two 75-cl bottles of Krug Grande Cuvee Edition 166. Meanwhile, the chocolate hamper contains nine different chocolate products including Belgian chocolate, hot chocolate mix and chocolate-covered popcorn.
Whether you grew up close with your grandmothers from either side of the family or not, they’re still women that deserve recognition. They’re the ones who taught your parents what they know about taking care of you. They’re also the ones who used to sneak you candies before dinner or an extra £20 for you to spend.
So, if you’re lucky enough to still have both or at least one of your grandmothers around, let her know how much you appreciate her with this box of Mini Moet Brut Champagne and Chocolates. It contains a bottle of 20-cl Moet Brut Champagne, a dry and elegant bubbly just enough for grandma. It’s paired with a 175g box of Belgid’Or Belgian Chocolates to satisfy her cravings for sweets.
Aunts are the unsung heroes of raising children. When you were a babe, they were most likely always there to babysit you when your parents couldn’t. They were the ones who gave you that extra scoop of ice cream and turned a blind eye when you stuck your hand inside the cookie jar yet again.
Whether they’re your aunt by blood or by choice, they deserve recognition. Send your aunt a Taittinger Brut Reserve with a Box of Belgian Chocolates to let her know how thankful you are for her presence in your life. The champagne comes in a 75-cl bottle and is known for its fine bubble mousse. It comes with a 460g box of indulgent Belgian Chocolates in milk, white and dark selections.
Does there need to be any other reason to give your wife a gift other than the fact that you love her? She puts up with your annoying habits and loves you unconditionally. If you have kids or even just furry pets as children, you must realise how much she’s doing to take care of them.
So, know how much you appreciate her by giving her this Armand De Brignac Deux Bouteilles. This gift set contains two 75-cl bottles of Armand de Brignac champagne, one in Brut Gold and the other in Rose. What’s so special about this gift is its rarity—there were less than 500 units of this created. This gift comes in a special box made from black lacquered wood with a black metal handle and a push-lock system. The case is also embossed with the signature Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades logo.
Add a Charbonnel Et Walker Triple Box, containing three sets of truffle boxes, and you can show your wife that she’s a one of a kind woman worthy of something special.
Your best gal pal has probably been with you since you were a kid, riding your bikes and skinning your knees together. Or maybe you met her in secondary school when she punched a guy for running his mouth about you. Maybe you were roommates at uni and clicked because of your shared love for Outlander. However, your friendship started, it’s important to recognise its importance in your life.
Celebrate your best girlfriend by sending her a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Rose Champagne. This 75-cl bottle bubbly comes in an ice jacket created with isothermic technology. This jacket keeps the champagne chilled for up to two hours.
Pair the champagne with the Chocoholics Letterbox Gift, a hamper especially curated for the chocolate lover. It has chocolate biscuits, fudge bars and several other items that your BFF will thank you for.
This part’s specifically for our female readers: with all the things you must put up with as a woman, you deserve to celebrate yourself and treat yourself for all your hard work and sacrifice.
Reward yourself by getting this Dom Perignon and Chocolates in a Luxury Box set. With this set, you’ll get a 75-cl bottle of the classic champagne label that is the flagship of Moet et Chandon together with a 100g bag of fine chocolate truffles.
