Hey,
Can you explain a little what kind of chocolate she prefers? If it's more sweet with different fillings or plain black with nuts? Or you prefer a combination of different ones?
I like Hotel Chocolat

I know it doesn't really help but any chocolate. I suppose if u was to say anything she would like a variety rather than one type in a box
Can't go wrong with Godiva chocolate!

You'll find them online as well as Selfridges and Harrods

I think Hotel Chocolat are really nice but not particularly good value for money if you're considering that when purchasing. When you get the sleekster boxes you can select a "Happy Birthday" gift sleeve for free though which adds a nice touch. The patisserie sleekster is particularly nice if she is a fan of desserts

If you want something better value that still tastes great and looks nice then I think Lindt are a great option. I've never been disappointed with any of their chocolates and if you go to one of their shops (or look online) they have a good variety of boxed chocolates available.

Me too.

Especially like the fortified selection.
Hotel chocolat seem to win on the marketing/sales but I'm always unimpressed when I eat them. Usually far too sweet and some very dubious flavour combos.
Another for hotel chocolate. Never been disappointed

I don't like them either.
Booja Booja are pretty darn good, especially the champagne truffles
Find a local chocolate shop and choose the chocolates individually. Then it’s swayed to her taste and seems more thoughtful and romantic.

Everything else is just pretentious bollards. Larger boxes = more space between the choclits.

If you would like a recommendation for some amazing chocolate, try Cocoa Cave Chocolate shop online, based near Peterborough and attends local farmers markets but also sells online.. Really lovely 'clean' taste, not cheap but well worth a treat
If you live near Ely then Cherry Hill Chocolates are amazing. Not sure if they sell online but worth a look.
I have gifted a box of Lauden chocolates and got very good feedback; they are also served in First class on British Airways. A few other nice options in my experience are Prestat and Chococo if you want to stick with UK makers.

I randomly spotted these in morrisons earlier too
Hotel Chocolat

I don't go in very often as it's dear shop but I'd be impressed if I got a gift from there
Looks like I'm going with Chococo guy's. Thanks for your help.
