The process of gift-giving affects both the giver and the receiver. Genuine and heartfelt gifts are a way to pass down parts of us and strengthen emotional bonds. There’s something beautiful and memorable about this exchange. Gifting can be as subtle as a confession of love with flowers or as celebratory as a graduation gift. There can be many occasions for giving gifts to express love, gratitude, or admiration.
Out of the many gift options, one of the most popular gifts of all time is chocolates. They come in different shapes, flavors and sizes. You can also opt for personalized wrapping to make them extra special. Read ahead for some reasons why you should gift chocolates more often.
They express love
Strawberries coated in a chocolate gift hamper are an ideal choice of gift if you’re in love. The fruit symbolizes purity, sensuality, and fertility. Legend has it that if you break a strawberry in half and share it with your partner, you’ll fall deeper in love with each other. The fruit’s color and shape symbolizes Venus, the goddess of love. What could be better to show your sweetheart how much you love them. Strawberries are also good antidepressants.
You also can deliver strawberries dipped in chocolates to a friend going through a rough patch in life. The sweet treat can uplift their mood.
They express gratitude
Maybe you have a friend who has helped you through college or any hardship and you want to thank them for the support. But you can’t think of anything that they genuinely need. There’s no point in worrying about expensive gift options that are not in your budget. Choose good and well-decorated chocolate hampers with a card that expresses your gratitude.
They can be shared
A great thing about a chocolate basket or bouquet is that it can be shared. So if a distant relative has surprised you with a big box of chocolates, all your family members can enjoy a scrumptious treat. Sharing can strengthen your familial relationships. The expression “a family who eats together, stays together” couldn’t be more appropriate for the situation.
They promote mental and physical health
Prepared from the seed of the cacao tree, dark chocolate is one of the best sources of antioxidants. They are loaded with biologically active organic compounds that function as antioxidants. The surplus amount of antioxidants is mentally and physically helpful. When consumed in moderation, it can help deal with depression. Dark chocolates contain stimulants like coffee and theobromine, but unlike coffee, they don’t keep you up all night. These indulgent treats have also been shown to prevent heart diseases by improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure.
To promote sustainability
When you are purchasing from a business that is committed to sustainability and partners with organizations that help cocoa-growing communities in Ghana, Brazil, Indonesia, etc., it helps increase farm profitability, social services, reduce child labor and poverty. Improvement of cocoa-growing communities helps protect and preserve our natural resources and save the environment. With every such purchase, you’re creating opportunities in a positive way. When you give such a gift, the recipient also gets an opportunity to be a part of this benevolent process.
Choosing a gift is not that easy but when you give chocolates you know that it’ll be enjoyed by everyone. The best part is that different varieties of chocolates can be tailored to suit any recipient!
