I'm Of The Opinion: Chocolate Makes the Best Gift

And it's not just because I used to work at a chocolate store. Chocolates make awesome holiday gifts for so many reasons!
  • One size fits all.
  • The variety - white, milk, dark, creams, jellies, solid, nuts, and more!
  • Chocolates can be shared.
  • Or kept to one's self!
 It's safe to say, I have given chocolates to everyone on my gift list at one time or another:
  • A box of assorted to the school secretary for Christmas.
  • Specialty chocolate covered espresso beans to my dad on Father's Day.
  • Truffles for a friend's birthday.

Chocolates are especially great for gifts to people you don't really know. Once I was invited to a holiday party where I didn't know the hostess very well. I brought a box of chocolates as a hostess gift. The possibilities are endless. 
Another great reason to give chocolates is that you can buy them practically anywhere at any time. Like the Hershey's Pot of Gold gift box - these chocolates are readily available at grocery and convenience stores, making a special trip to the mall unnecessary.

Or, if you're looking to add a personal touch, think of all the great gift items you can MAKE using chocolates. Visit Celebrate With Hershey's to get idea for awesome cookies and other holiday treats you can make with chocolate.

Chocolate - don't leave home without it this holiday!
