I have a second little competition for you today – but since it’s chocolate I’m sure you’ll forgive me!

Your Surprise have sent us a gorgeous Chocolate Card, and I think these make such fantastic Christmas gifts, especially for those people you’d love to get something  for, but can’t think of what.

The Chocolate Card is customisable and can be personalised with your own picture, your own text and decoration to match.  You choose how many you want, and place your order.

I was really pleasantly surprised. Not only was the Belgian Callebaut chocolate to die  for, the art work was gorgeous. I didn’t have a photo printed, but I chose a specifically intricate design and a cursive font, thinking they might be harder to perfect, but it was really nicely done.he top layer is always white chocolate, and you can choose plain white, milk or dark for the rest of the chocolate. I’m not a lover of white chocolate, so I was a bit concerned that it was going to ruin the yum for me, but it absolutely did not. It’s so hard in a sponsored blog post to convey sincerity, because you could just think I love the chocolate because I have to. And it’s true, I could. But behind closed doors, there are no secrets, and here’s the embarrassing truth: My husband and I shared the chocolate card while Ameli was sleeping so we didn’t have to share.

Because I was unsure of the quality of the chocolate I ordered one for myself before even considering giving one away as a gift, and added the text ‘It’s a girl… Congratulations’. I must admit, I think it’s a great alternative to a conventional card, a lovely Christmas card, or an occasion card or even favours for babyshowers, Christenings or weddings.  I’m really impressed.


You can win your own Chocolate Card, either for yourself or for someone else. Simply head over to Your Surprise’s Chocolate Card page, have a look at the different options, then come back here and leave a comment saying what chocolate you’d prefer and what message you’d put on the card.
