Father’s Day with Hotel Chocolat and Giveaway

May 23, 2017
Fathers Day Sleekster from Hotel Chocolat

Stuck for a Father’s Day gift? Why not put a smile on your dad’s face and celebrate Father’s Day with Hotel Chocolat?

Did you know Father’s Day is nearly here? It normally falls on the third Sunday of June and this year it’s June 18th. Father’s Day is a day to celebrate the impact that fathers have on our everyday lives. It is easy to forget how much our dad’s do for us. From acting as a taxi driver, doing DIY and offering advice, fathers are an important part of our lives. I know my dad will always be there if I need him and my son knows the same about his dad. Father’s Day is a chance to say thank you for being my dad.

One of the main problems with men is it is hard to know what they want. They are bad at dropping hints for things they like. There are only so many pairs of socks you can get as a present. Fortunately Hotel Chocolat have come to the rescue with their selection of chocolates for Father’s Day.

Father’s Day with Hotel Chocolat

Fathers Day Sleekster from Hotel Chocolat

I am a big fan of Hotel Chocolat products. The gorgeous packaging screams luxury and you know before you open the box you are holding something special. Opening the box does not disappoint either, Hotel Chocolat do a great selection of different chocolate recipes. There are choices for milk, dark and white chocolate lovers. I was lucky enough to get a box of Hotel Chocolat for Mother’s Day.

Fortunately Hotel Chocolat also have  a great selection of Father’s Day gifts.  These are sure to put a smile on the face of your Dad. From pocket money prices to the more expensive boxes there is a gift to suit every father. As well as chocolate you can even get Cocoa Beer, an ale with overtones of chocolate. This can be bought separately or as part of a chocolate hamper. I think this is a really unusual idea.

The Father’s Day Sleekster

Hotel Chocolat Father's Day Sleekster

This year my son is treating his dad to the Father’s Day Sleekster from Hotel Chocolat. This gorgeous blue box contains 27 of the finest recipes from Hotel Chocolat. There is a selection of milk, white, caramel and dark chocolates with fruity, boozy and dessert style chocolates. It will be a lovely surprise for my husband and I know he will love them. The only problem he will have is deciding which chocolate to eat first.

Father's Day Sleekster from Hotel Chocolat

Some of these chocolates are almost too pretty to eat. The peanut praline and the eton mess in particular are like mini works of art. Pretty as they are I am sure they will not last long. The box makes it clear the chocolates are his as well, with Happy Father’s Day written across it.

  8. Rachel Craig says:

    Unfortunately my own Dad died when I was a child, as were my siblings. One of my Brothers was Delighted when he would receive a gift for Fathers Day. I can recall last year his daughter bringing him a gift from his one and only grandchild, a Grandson. She brought the gifts to my Mum’s as we were there visiting my Mum. That brother was close to my Mum, unfortunately he died a few months ago. I have an older brother who has grown-up step-children from a marriage which unfortunately ended in divorce.

    My fiancé is kind and Caring. He has been accepted by my family. My Mum and sister being particularly fond of him. I think this year we will try to acknowledge the kind and Caring aspect of Fathers. As we fondly remember my deceased brother, who was kind and Caring in Nature as he grew up within our family. He is now resting in peace alongside our Dad and Aunt (our Dad’s sister) who loved him much and he loved them. I will remember the Sharing and Caring that has been expressed throughout the family. Whilst we acknowledge the male aspects within the family, my older brother now in Caring role for my Mum. We adapt as we must. We continue to love and plan to Celebrate Fathers Day, thinking of all Dads and children on the Special, Important Occasion.
