Gifting

For most of us, giving gifts is actually better than receiving gifts. Thinking about what another person might appreciate, choosing for their tastes, likes, personalities and even characters, drives our basic need of connection to others. We get a sense of our own place in the world, that we contributed something – we mattered to someone.

From anticipating their reaction, preparing, concentrating, and selecting the perfect way to express what they mean to us – is a core driver in our successful relationships. 


Which Means

that there is no better way to express our subconscious feelings towards another person than a gift and there is only one thing better than giving a gift – giving a home baked gift. Something created, slaved over, watched and timed says so much more than anything store-bought. Of course, chocolate speaks to our primal pleasure zones, and using Belgian Chocolate Gems as the core ingredient is the closest thing possible to ‘designer baking’
