Monty Bojangles Truffle Trunk

There’s something magical about this truffle trunk. It takes the magic of wanderlust in a suitcase but filled with boxes of your favourite chocolate flavours, in truffle form. What makes this so perfect is that, when ordering direct from Monty Bojangles, you can actually pick which flavours to have in the suitcase, any it’s only £40 for nine boxes and over 100 truffles, which is great value.

Despite the heavy cocoa coating (make sure you have a wet wipe on hand), the flavours are delicious. We highly recommend the ‘pistachio macarooned’ ones as they have a delicious nutty flavour and crunchy texture amongst the silky truffle. The names of each flavour are quirky, the packaging is colourful and you can even use the trunk for storage when you’ve finished the truffles.

The London Chocolate Co. Wonderful vegan chocolate hamper

It can be tricky to find a well-made, beautifully designed vegan chocolate hamper – but The London Chocolate Co. have done a stellar job. The truffle designs are stunning and with classic flavours such as orange, coconut, salted caramel and raspberry – you can’t go wrong!

This hamper feels luxurious and sophisticated, a perfect gift, you also get a chocolate bar with a perfect blend of rich dark chocolate and sea salt and a luxurious dark hot chocolate. It’s on the pricey side at £50, as you only get three products, but for how lavish it is and how great quality the chocolate is, it’s worth the money.
