Life provides all too many occasions to purchase gifts for family members and friends. We celebrate with the ones we love for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, the birth of babies, graduations and many other significant events. Don't get me wrong, I love to celebrate with people. I love being a part of people's lives and walking with them through life's best moments. Sometimes, however, it gets stressful trying to find appropriate gifts to bless your friends and family with. I have recently learned something that has liberated my stress about gift giving: a chocolate gift is always the perfect gift.
I never would have considered myself one to give food or treats as gifts, but once I started buying different kinds of chocolate gifts for the events and celebrations of my family and friends I couldn't stop. They loved their gifts, and I loved the ease of purchasing and giving them. I am sure that giving a chocolate gift for every occasion will not be something that I do forever, but for now, while it works, I'm sticking with it.
What I love about giving a chocolate gift is that everyone I know loves getting gifts and they love chocolate. What could be more perfect than combining the two? Giving a chocolate gift is a great way to celebrate with something useful and something enjoyable.
Another thing that I have grown to love about giving a chocolate gift for almost any occasion is how much variety there is. I never would have imagined all the creative ways I could use chocolate products to make chocolate gifts. For example, when my ten year old daughter came home and needed the perfect birthday gift for a party that evening, I thought quick and came up with a great chocolate gift. My daughter and I prepared a bag filled with homemade brownie mix and we attached the cooking directions on the bag with a ribbon. My daughter loved the idea because she knew her girlfriends were just starting to get interested in baking. I loved the idea because it was quick, simple and creative all at the same time.
If you are looking for great ways to bless the people in your life, look no further than giving chocolate gifts. Your gifts will be the talk of the parties you attend, and you'll be able to share or keep your chocolate gift secrets as you wish.
