Melt Chocolates, London wants to help you with chocolate gift ideas for Christmas. Melt Chocolates is an artisan chocolate company based in Notting Hill, London. Christmas is one of our busiest times of year. From our many years of experience, and chocolate festivities we have put together a guide for gifting chocolate this Christmas.
Our chocolate is great for London gift ideas, as our most of our products can be ordered straight to your door via Deliveroo.
So lets get into it! What are good gifts for chocolate lovers? Chocolate of course!
Whether your gifting for a milk chocolate lover, dark chocolate chocoholic, sugar-free or vegan loved ones, we’ve got something for you all.
There are various different times to eat and enjoy chocolate during Christmas. You have the morning sweet treats of Advent Calendars, the cozy night of Christmas Eve, the excitement of morning stocking presents and finally all of the delicious Christmas meals. All of these stages of Christmas can be made even better with good chocolate.
For example, founder of Melt Chocolates, Louise Nason, places alphabet letter bar with the first letter of her childrens names in their stockings.
So, in our guide for chocolate christmas present ideas we will go through each of the stages of Christmas, and which chocolates we would recommend.
Firstly, this delicious soft hazelnut gianduja terrine is the perfect stocking present for those who love chocolate and nuts. The terrine is the perfect size to put into a stocking, and has a beautiful plastic-free packaging that will gleam gold in the morning light of Christmas. Bite into this chocolate bar and experience the heavenly taste of hazelnut chocolate or break off pieces to share around with loved ones.
Show your love this Christmas with our Love milk chocolate bar. Handmade by our London chocolatiers, these delicious chocolate bars are with crunchy feuilletine. This Love Bar is a tasty treat to open on Christmas morning and to be enjoyed right there and then!
Our beautiful selection of personalised chocolate alphabet bars are the perfect size to be placed into a stocking. Whether you want to spell out your loved ones full name, the first letter of their name or ‘I ❤️ U’, you will make their stocking just that much more personal.
So, it is Christmas Eve and you’ve stuffed your stockings full of chocolate. Now it is time to relax. The best way to do this is by drinking a delicious hot chocolate.

After you’ve filled yourself up with tasty pigs in blankets, roast turkey and potatoes, you might not think you have space for pudding. You do! We assure you. However, chocolate is a good light pudding. Enjoy the burst of flavour from a chocolate truffle or orangette, without overfilling yourself.
Taste these confit orange slices and experience the surge of interesting flavours. Orange, maple syrup, tangy citrus flavour notes combined with a rich dark chocolate and cocoa nibs will take you on a sensory journey that is immensely pleasurable. The perfect Christmas Eve treat as you watch a movie the night before Christmas. Or share around with family and friends around the fireplace. The confit orange has a gorgeous texture like caramelised sugar – sticky, sweet and golden. So, take it slow and enjoy each dark chocolate orange slice.
The Gianduja Chocolate Cake is the perfect chocolate gift to bring to a Christmas dinner party, to share around the table with friends and family. It is the perfect accompaniment to an espresso after dinner. With its generous size, you can cut a slice for everyone! The gianduja is sweet enough to satisfy milk chocolate lovers, but rich enough to satisfy those with a taste for high quality luxury chocolate.
