Sweet DIY Chocolate-Themed Gift Ideas


This DIY Chocolate-themed gift post is part of a Fashionista Event, and a promotional item was provided to me by Chocolat Frey. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… As well it should, because believe it or not, it’s only TWENTY days until Christmas! Are you ready yet? Have you made your list and checked it twice? Well, if you’re anything like me this year, and just getting started on your holiday gift shopping, I have a great suggestion for you. Chocolate. Yep. Because seriously, who doesn’t love chocolate? Especially when it’s a premium fancy-pants chocolate, and you gift it in a creatively fun way. Keep reading to learn more – and for a SWEET giveaway just for you!

Chocolat Frey for holiday gifting

I’m on a pretty tight budget this year. That means I have to get creative with my gifts. And it’s amazing how many fun ways there are to create unique presents using Chocolat Frey goodies – we’re using them as gifts for the Abby’s teacher, stocking stuffers for all the kiddos, as part of gift packages for friends and family – and my favorite, this super cool DIY Chocolat Frey Trifle Dish Gift Set! Just like a traditional trifle dessert, it has layers of deliciousness shown off in a pretty pedestal dish. But way more fun!

Chocolat Frey® is the #1 chocolate brand in Switzerland

In case you’re not familiar with the brand, here are a few reasons why I chose Chocolat Frey for my holiday gifting this year – Chocolat Frey® is the #1 chocolate brand in Switzerland. It all started way back in 1887, and to this day continues creating premium chocolate that is more than just super delicious. Their bean-to-bar process uses authentic, GMO-free ingredients like rich cocoa beans, whole rusted nuts and milk, to ensure the highest quality creations, and an indulgent taste experience that is the hallmark of Chocolat Frey. And they’re not just amazing for your taste buds, they’re also amazing for the world – their chocolate is UTZ certified, and supports sustainable farming. Pretty perfect, if you ask me.

Chocolat Frey for gift giving

So, this chocolate looks good, tastes good, and does good. It makes a perfect gift on it’s own – the classy packaging is perfect for this premium chocolate, just add a bow and a card to make any recipient smile. Or, layer a few varieties together into a trifle dish like I did to create a really fun gift for the foodie on your list this year. It looks really impressive – a big ol’ towering trifle dish filled up with chocolatey goodness and tied up with ribbons – but it is SO easy, pinky promise.

DIY a chocolate trifle gift set

To make this gift set, I started with a cute holiday plate, then set a simple trifle dish on top. Next I used a few fun boxes and bars of Chocolat Frey as a base – boxes wrapped in red ribbon in the middle, with bars of different sizes lightly taped around them. After that I simply made layers of chocolate, trifle-style, to fill the bowl. I used four types of wrapped chocolates in brightly colored wrappers to create fun, festive layers. I also added a couple more handfuls of chocolate bars around the base, because, well – you can never have enough chocolate! I topped it off with a Chocolat Frey reindeer in a bright red package, and tied it all up with holiday ribbon! {Secret: To get a pretty bow, use a ribbon with some wire in it. Then roll it around a pen or marker, even your finger – then unroll and loosen up a bit, for a big bright bow with curling edges!}

DIY Chocolat Frey Trifle Dish Chocolate Gift Idea

It’s so pretty, isn’t it?? Rich layers of decadent premium chocolates, combined with a couple of fun serving pieces that can be used again throughout the year, and wrapped in holiday ribbons. Perfect for anyone – at Christmas, or any other time that you want to brighten up someone’s day. We can’t all afford to gift the newest must-have, like a designer purse or the next high-tech gadget. But anyone can give a gift to impress when it includes Chocolat Frey! Keep reading to learn where to get it, how to win some of your own, and a bunch of other really amazing ideas for gifting it this year.
