From Forrest Gump to Willy Wonka, the cinematic universe is rife with characters who deploy chocolate gifts as a metaphor for chance and possibility. We have to admit there’s something alluring about a mystery assortment of truffles and bonbons filled with everything from the standard wave of caramel to an eggnog ganache. The chocolate gift box’s myriad of decadent delights makes the nearly universally loved treat somehow even more enticing, especially with all that holiday cheer floating in the air.
We dug through pages upon pages of sugary gift boxes to unearth the most innovative twists on the beloved cacao bean that are sure to make great holiday gifts this year. Of course, we also sprinkled in a few of the classics from Lindt and Godiva because we can't deny the comfort in actually knowing exactly what you're going to get (sorry, Forrest). Take a peep ahead at all the chocolaty gift assortments that are almost too sweet to eat.
