Imagine the scene : it's somebody's birthday and you have no idea what to get them; you know they like chocolate (who doesn't) and you need to buy them a card. However you have no clue exactly what to get them?! It's pretty much a given that I'll always appreciate chocolate in some form for my birthday, or as a gift for any occasion for that matter. So you can imagine my delight when Chocmotif, a company who specialise in creating personalised chocolate cards contacted me.
Chocmotif, based in Glasgow, use their own patented technology to spray your own unique design on a chocolate card! It's like Moonpig, but with chocolate! I mean could it really get any better?! They focus on 5 main products :Chocolate Greetings Cards, Personalised Chocolate Greetings Cards, Chocolate Sentiments, Chocolate Names with a difference and certain Promotional items. All designs are printed/sprayed onto good quality Belgian chocolate and come complete with presentation envelope.
You can use various photos, templates, designs and even insert your own text before you order is dispatched to the specified address - it really couldn't be simpler!
I had great fun in designing my own cards using the various range of templates that Chocmotif offer and decided on one Billboard variety, including my favourite cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants holding a variety of chocolate bars and one "Keep Calm" variety. Chocmotif also kindly included an extra "Keep Calm" chocolate card when the products were sent out!
On arrival I was extremely impressed with the quality and presentation of the chocolates; the printing is superb, the pictures aren't blurry whatsoever and don't impede on the flavour of the chocolate thankfully!
The Belgian chocolate used is better quality than your usual commercial stuff, with a solid 30% cocoa percentage that will satisfy all chocolate lovers with its creamy, milky, sweet flavour profile.
Whilst the personalised touch to these products adds an extra dimension to the overall appeal; I would be over the moon to receive one of these as a gift! If you're looking for a gift for someone and have no idea what to get them why not combine the present/card in one? I can't think of anything better! Plus..you're not going to be wasting any paper ;) in fact the recycling process is simple..just eat!
