Bday gift?

A good gift is hard to find.  What do you get someone when you aren't sure what to get them and they appear to be able to get what they want.  There are the wine lovers, the beer lovers, the chefs, the cigar smokers, etc. 

Always nice to bring a bottle of wine to a party, not nice to bring store bought dessert when the person cooks.  But, how about a birthday party?

My latest find of the moment is Gourmet Chocolate of the Month.  This particular site also links to their other sites such as Beer, Wine, Cigars, Cheese and Flowers of the month.  So you can pick a different option depending on the person.  I like the chocolate.  Everyone loves chocolate….well at least I think everyone loves chocolate.  This particular gift can be given in different ways.  One month, 3 months, 6 months, one year, etc.  Also, the chocolate comes from renown boutique chocolatiers from all over the world. 

I go in stages.  Right now, I'm into the chocolate.  Hey, next year, I might be sending something completely different.  But I'm digging the chocolate.

    hmmm, good tip.another way to send a chocolate hug is via fairytale brownies. i have sent them to three different friends for very different occasions: (our surrogate, a friend battling breast cancer, a friend who just got a fab book deal.) the brownies got rave reviews. the book deal friend is super persnickety and very frank. she said “i was suspicous because the packaging…i thought they’d be very processed, but they were divine!”

    Mostly, I buy hand dipped chocolates and have them put in antique crystal hinged box es or on a special dish. This sounds much more convenient.and as always thanks for sharing a really good idea.
