Hotel Chocolat is a brand that’s been in our house at Christmas since the shop opened up in Aberdeen.
The large chocolate slabs are a favourite in our home, but apart from them there is so much choice for Christmas gifts.
The Christmas Sleekster – It’s Christmas Day. The turkey has been picked clean, the last of the roast potatoes has been swiped and there aren’t even any Brussels sprouts still lingering. Clear the table and watch their eyes light up as you bring out this striking box of chocolates, stuffed full of festive and favourite flavours from caramel to cinnamon and Champagne to praline. The perfect after-dinner nibble for your family – or theirs, if you’re feeling generous with your gift list! £22.50
It doesn’t just look like a cracker, it sounds like one too: our unapologetically huge centrepiece is fitted with a snap so your Christmas can go off with a rather large bang! That, and spilling 40 chocolates and 12 paper hats and jokes across your dining table – enough for all your friends and family to look the part as they tuck in to the turkey! £36.00
Our ode to a Christmas tradition, in mellow yet deep 50% milk chocolate. Instead of twigs, we’ve loaded our wreath with pistachios and cranberries. This one is big enough for a striking centrepiece, or it makes a chunky, munchy gift for a couple or family. Just don’t add candles! £20.00
Taking a group shot isn’t easy when you’re all flippers and thumbs. Santa and the gang’s Christmas card photo, in mellow milk and creamy white chocolate, is one for the album – and at 500g, it’s one that’s big enough for all the family to try a bite of too! A fun festive gift for you and yours, or to put a smile on someone’s face. £16.00
Or if you’re feeling super flash with the cash there’s this!

I’ll be heading out to get my regular Slab for David this year, but I’ll be picking up a few of the above as well.
Will any of these be making it onto your Christmas shopping list?
