Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide: Chocolates!


Emma Spoonauer , Editor

Believe it or not, the holidays are coming very soon! Many lose track of time and need last minute gift ideas, or the person they’re shopping for is a tough customer. Whatever the case, it’s always important to get good gifts for those you care about, even if you fear it’s too late. But don’t worry! I have a gift idea that’s a crowd pleaser and you can get quickly, chocolates!

Even though chocolate might seem like a generic gift, there are many different types of packages you can choose from. With most places having a large selection, you can tailor the chocolates you choose to what you think the person might like. 

In addition to that, I’ve never met a person who wasn’t a fan of chocolate. There’s a slim chance that the recipient of your chocolates won’t be happy with what you got them. You really can’t go wrong with chocolate, or most sweets for that matter.

There are several places in the area where you can purchase this chocolate. You can go to the Godiva store in Freehold Raceway Mall or shop online from this brand on Amazon. If you’re looking for something on the cheaper side you can go to pretty much any convenience store like Walgreens, CVS, or Walmart. 

If you go to Godiva, they have many different types of chocolates and a bunch of different assortment boxes. Their price range is about $20-$60. Their chocolates tend to be better quality than convenience store chocolates, matching their price point, but convenience store chocolates are still decent. Convenience store chocolate usually doesn’t cost more than $10.

Overall, chocolates are proven to be a fantastic last minute gift idea. There is a large selection to choose from, they’re a crowd pleaser, easy to find, and are flexible in price. Good luck with your gift shopping and happy holidays!
