My mom has had an exceptionally rough week, so I put together an early Mother’s Day present to try to cheer her up a little bit. When I get stressed out, all I want is some chocolate and a glass of wine, so I ran with that idea and put together a wine and chocolate relaxation gift basket for my mom. She loves dark chocolate, so I picked up some of my favorite Dove Chocolates for her. I love Dove more than any other chocolate because it’s SO silky smooth with a flavor that (I think!) beats even the most expensive chocolates I’ve tried.
I love Dove Promises because each individually wrapped chocolate contains a positive and encouraging message inside – perfect for my mom! I love that Dove offers so many unique and delicious flavor combinations so that I can discover a chocolate for my mom that is as special as she is. These new Silky Smooth Sea Salt Caramel Dark Chocolates looked WAY too good to pass up!
I packaged up a few different flavors of the Dove Promises including the Silky Smooth Mint & Dark Chocolate Swirl, Almond Dark Chocolate and the Sea Salt Caramel Dark Chocolates into a small bag and tied it with ribbon. I may have sneaked and given then Sea Salt Caramel chocolates a tiny taste test (um, YUM!). I also added a few bars of Dove dark chocolate, a bottle of red wine, and a couple of my mom’s favorite magazines. I packaged everything up in a cute reusable flower pot since she’s an avid gardener.
To finish, I used double sided tape to adhere a few of the Promises to the flower pot in a decorative flower shape – easy peasy! I love putting together quick and simple gift baskets that will bring a big smile to the face of the recipient, and I’m sure that my mom is going to love this one!
