Birthday Gift Boxes for Chocolate Lovers

Birthday Gift Boxes for Chocolate Lovers

Chocolate addict, chocolate obsessed, chocoholic - we all have someone in our lives who loves chocolate. Be it your mom, best friend, or co-worker, those who are chocolate aficionados tend to make themselves known. Instead of getting them the same sad box of chocolates they receive birthday after birthday, this time you can make their year ahead even more memorable with a gift box of luxury Italian chocolates.

Italian chocolate is an experience like no other, and a gourmet food box from Tasty Ribbon is the easiest way to bring the essence of Italy right to their doorstep. Our Decadent Chocolate collection features the finest in Italian confections from artisans that represent our native country and home, including Vestri, an innovative and family run artisan originating from Tuscany’s “chocolate valley” and works of chocolatiering from T’a, housed in Milan and started by brothers Tancredi and Alberto Alemagna.

Our gift boxes come sleekly packaged for the ultimate birthday surprise and include a handwritten note with a special message. And if you can’t be there on their special day, we make it easy to select and deliver the most indulgent box of Italian chocolate treasures they’ll ever receive, straight to their doorstep.
