So,this is for a November birthday for a difficult to buy for chocolate loving friend but thought I'd get more input here and might provide ideas for christmas for others... I was thinking of a chocolate themed hamper. Chocolate goodies easy, but looking for other chocolate themed things e.g. Chocolate liqueur, choc massage oil etc. any thoughts??

good quality hot chocolate definitely; antimatter, do you have any links (am away with work and running out of time).

Thank you both

Chocolate recipe book? Lots around
Chocolat - Joanne Harris book / DVD

this friend doesn't cook, so recipe book would not be worth it. Great idea re Chocolat book. Not sure if she's read it, could ask her Mum/DD

Bumping for a few more ideas please, need to get this sorted ASAP . 'Hamper haters' ive seen on a recent thread need not comment, as I know this friend likes this sort of gift. Thank you

Chcolate tea? Can't remember the brand - maybe tea pigs?

depends how much you want to spend but Hotel Chocolat is lovely chocolate and they do other chocolate themed things too now. It is expensive but worth it.

You can buy online if there isnt a shop near you.

What about the Baileys new chocolate flavour?

Yes, can get to Hotel Chocolat, will put lots of 'chocolate' I , but would like to think of some different chocolate themed things. The tea is a good idea thanks. Just checked, can get it from tea pigs but would only be ordering that, which means the postage would cost more than the tea if I read it properly? Do you know if you can get it in shops? (Will google again, just if you know)

lilolilmanchester Sun 10-Nov-13 20:45:02

Choc baileys definitely thanks, and m&ms are cute! Will take a closer look.

We bought some white chocolate hot chocolate powder from Whittards (£5.50)

DD approves.

antimatter Sun 10-Nov-13 20:57:26

beers may be harder to get hold of

sorry - that stout was by Youngs!

Liqueurs ink{}

I personally (when I go abroad to visit friends with kids) buy sachets of Catburys (others make them too) - you can get them in any supermarket

Tesco have chocolate tea - think it might be their own brand but not sure.

I'm sure jelly belly do chocolate flavoured jelly beans which means they probably do lollys etc too

lilolilmanchester Sun 10-Nov-13 21:26:33

Wow, fabulous, thank you everyone, lots of great ideas there.

Wiifitmama Sun 10-Nov-13 21:27:08

You can get tea pigs at waitrose, Ocado etc.

hermioneweasley Sun 10-Nov-13 21:57:53

You can buy pure cocoa sticks for cooking (hotel chocolat do some) and they add a real depth of flavour

The book, or DVD, Hotel du Chocolat.

A jigsaw? Sorry am rubbish at linking but if you type chocolate jigsaw puzzle in amazon loads of cool ones come up.

The body shop has a range called chocomania which has soap, body butter etc.
