Why Chocolates are the Perfect Gift For Christmas

Chocolate is the ultimate failsafe go-to gift for Christmas. It goes hand in hand with every occasion - Valentine’s Day, birthdays, Mother’s Day, or just an It's Been One of Those Mondays. Even Christmas Day - what better Christmas gift than a food that tastes so good and is good for you! Whatever the day, you can always rely on chocolate for a perfect gift.

Chocolate is much loved by all ages. It doesn’t matter if someone is five, 45 or 95, everybody loves delicious, quality chocolates at Christmas time. And the beauty of choosing a Christmas gift basket is the wide array of chocolate assortments that cater for any taste. Whether your lucky recipient likes nuts, truffles, milk or dark chocolate, give them a Xmas gift basket and they'll find a chocolate treasure that’s perfect for them.

Sweet Tooth Gift Box


Chocolate is such a sumptuous, luxurious food. You can eat chocolate every day and it still feels so special. That smooth velvety texture and rich sweet taste - everything about chocolate speaks of luxury and indulgence. A beautifully presented selection of handmade chocolates not only tastes delicious but it looks elegant and impressive, making the person receiving it feel really valued.

As an added bonus, there are medically proven ways in which chocolate has been shown to have health giving benefits. Experts have found that dark chocolate is a powerful source of minerals and healthy antioxidants. It's good for the brain, heart and circulation. A very recent study found that dark chocolate helps prevent arteries from clogging and reduces the risk of stroke. It's also full of feel-good endorphins so by giving someone chocolate, you can literally bring them happiness.

Choose your quality chocolate gift at Gift Barn for someone for Christmas, from exceptional Bennetts of Mangawhai handmade chocolates to gorgeous handmade truffles from House of Chocolate or the sublime Sweet Tooth Gift Box, all delivered fast throughout New Zealand.

My daughter has lived in New Zealand for over 10 years. We always send her and her family gifts for every occasion which costs and American arm and leg. I've looked many times to find a NZ Company I could order from to send local and the other day I found this company. I ordered one day and it was delivered the next. My daughter loved it. She said that the different products in the basket were the best quality and local products. I am so happy to have found this website. Thank you so much,
