Mom-Approved

Posted on May 3, 2010 10:49 AM by Erin



Every time a holiday rolls around, I'm always racking my brain trying to think of the perfect chocolate for Mother's Day.  Then after a few days, I usually resort to asking her what she really wants or needs.  If your Mom is anything like mine, the answer is always the same: "Please, save your money.  I don't need anything.  I don't want anything.  Just send me a card".  I'm not sure what it is about motherhood that makes you a martyr.  Or maybe it's that you never stop worrying about your kids.

Well whatever it is, I think a gourmet chocolate gift may be your answer.  Really, it's the perfect Mom gift.  It's practical - she doesn't need to water it, store it, try it on (only to return it later).  Nor does it require batteries or setup.  At the same time, she will be impressed by how extraordinary Lake Champlain Chocolates are. Mom will appreciate the fact that our chocolates are handcrafted in small batches (the old-fashioned way) and made from all-natural, local ingredients.

Mom will also approve that we have chocolate gifts for any budget.  Our Chocolate Truffles are always a hit on Mother's Day, with gift boxes starting at just $12.  Our assorted Chocolate Gift Boxes are also popular, especially the beautiful Spring 15 Piece and Summer 15 Piece Gift Boxes (both $29).  If you're looking for something really fun, my Mom loves the Chocolate Fish!  Or, the Chocolate Flowers are also a great value at $19.

Those are just a few gifts that I'm sure your Mom would be thrilled to receive this Mother's Day...and more importantly won't keep her up at night worrying about how much you spent.  If you'd like any other suggestions, give us a call!


Looking for a Mother’s Day Gift?

We have just two words for you:  Lobster & Chocolate.

Can you think of two more decadent, indulgent foods?  So this got me thinking, as a fairly new mom this might be a perfect Mother’s Day gift- a lobster dinner followed by some delicious truffles for dessert.  Throw in some good wine and good (adult) company and you’ve got a pretty great Mother’s Day gift.

You know where to get the Mother's Day Chocolate, but what about the lobster?  Lucky for us we have friends in good places, like the Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co. in Maine.  They focus on creating the best all-natural specialty lobster products.  Check out their facebook page and see what’s happening – there are all sorts of choices, personally I love just plain ol’ lobster with some butter for dipping but I am tempted by some of their other creations such as Lobster Mac n’ Cheese or how about a Lobster Soufflé?  As my 3 year old would say, “oooh boy!”  (and now you know why I specified adult company -and wine).

As for the chocolate, we’ve got some great options too-  including the Spring Chocolate Selection (an assortment of the most popular flavors), chocolate flowers and amazing dark chocolate covered orange peels. And as always, don't forget our popular collection of Organic Chocolate Turffles. No lobster covered chocolate yet but with crazy combos like bacon and chocolate, who knows what unique chocolate gifts are next??


PS- Mother's Day is Sunday May 9th!
