Now that the countdown to the 2012 holidays has officially begun, your calendar is steadily filling up with plans for family gatherings and dinner parties with friends. With so many hosts graciously opening their doors to you this season of giving, there’s no merrier way to show them your appreciation than by giving them the perfect thank-you present. If you’re in need of some wow-worthy hostess gift ideas, we have just the solution for you: Deck the halls with boxes of chocolate! Here are 10 hostess gifts that will make everyone’s holiday a little sweeter.
Start the celebration early! With the Peace Love Joy Advent Calendar, your hostess can start her own countdown—and treat herself to a delicious piece of Fannie May chocolate—each day leading up to her big bash.
Give your bighearted hostess something she can pass out to all of her guests. The Holiday Sharing Create Your Own Gift lets you pick your own combination from more than 40 different classic Fannie May desserts, from Mint Meltaways to chocolate-covered orange peels.
For the hostess who knows how to throw a splendidly extravagant soiree, only a lavish gourmet gift would do. The FM Artisan Gift Tower features an abundance of ultra-premium handcrafted chocolate truffles filled with the finest ganache.
If the lady of the house has eclectic taste and likes to reuse her gifts time and again, the Festive Gathering Gift Basket has a little bit of everything she loves: 10 different chocolate holiday treats to satisfy her every craving, and a beautiful winter-themed tin basket that can be used for anything from serving champagne to storing magazines.
Filled with festive foil-wrapped solid milk chocolate Santas, snowmen and Christmas tree ornaments, the exclusive Chocolate Novelty Assortment makes the perfect gift for any hostess with small children. Her little helpers deserve some holiday sugar too!
Bring your hostess back to her own childhood memories of the holidays by presenting her with the Holiday Berry Bundle. With traditional flavors like sweet caramel, creamy eggnog, spicy gingerbread and minty-fresh candy cane, these irresistible chocolate-covered strawberries will make your hostess nostalgic for the homemade treats she loved as a kid.
Just like your hostess will indulge you with a holiday feast fit for a queen, spoil her with a treat that has a little bit of sweet, a little bit of spice, and a whole lotta nice. These brand-new Sea Salt Caramels are made with Fannie May’s famously delicious caramel, covered in rich dark or milk chocolate, and dusted with flavor-enhancing salt flakes.
Another way for the mistress of the household to nosh on her chocolatey gift? Sipping on it, of course! Mix things up with the Drinking Chocolate Trio, the perfect drinkable confection for filling up those holiday mugs.
On the flipside, rather than drinking one of her favorite holiday beverages, your hostess can enjoy it as a bite-sized truffle that will melt in her mouth. These sinfully smooth Eggnog Creams are coated with snowy-white pastel and sprinkled with nutmeg. It’s like giving her 28 steaming cups of eggnog in a box!
Who says the gift-giving has to end on the night of the party? For the hostess who’s always there for you, opt for the 12 Months of Giving Club and show her how special she is the whole year through. Each month, she’ll be surprised with a delectable Fannie May treat, like the 12-piece champagne truffles or the mini pretzel trio.
