The run-up to Christmas can get busy — so busy, in fact, that your gift-buying can really sneak up on you! Before you know it, you’re halfway through December — and still with so many presents to buy.
But before you start panicking, take a look at our last-minute gift ideas. At Love Cocoa, we have some fabulous goodies just waiting to be tucked into someone’s Christmas stocking. And with Christmas chocolate this delicious, your loved ones will never need to know your gifts were bought right near the big day!
Why chocolate makes the ideal last-minute Christmas gift
All these Christmas gifts have one common theme — they’re made from exquisite Love Cocoa chocolate. When you’re unsure what to buy someone for Christmas and only have a limited amount of time left, what’s better than the gift of quality, ethical chocolate? The ultimate crowd-pleaser, we think it’s a superb token of your appreciation.
If you’re hoping to make a grand gesture, you can choose a larger treat or chocolate hamper gift. And if you’re just looking for some extra stocking fillers, you can opt for petite chocolate bars or truffles. Whatever you’re going for, you’ll be able to find a chocolate gift that’s a perfect match.
To see all our festive-themed Christmas gifts in one place, go straight to our Christmas chocolate collection for truffles, selection boxes, chocolate hamper gifts, and more. Alternatively, read on for a little more guidance on chocolate gifts for all the special people in your life.

Take a look at our last-minute chocolate gift ideas for him, her, and the kids.
Last-minute gifts for him
Make him smile with a selection of chocolates that deliver on luxury, indulgence, and sublime flavours. Or a tipple — he’ll probably appreciate that too!
For Him Chocolate Gift Box
This generous hamper is packed with our Dark Chocolate Truffles, three chocolate bars (sea salt, salted almond, and salted caramel), plus our chocolate-dipped Espresso Martini Beans. If you’re looking for chocolate gifts for him, this gift box contains a delicious variety of nibbles to keep his cupboards stocked throughout the festive season.
For Him Letterbox Chocolate Bundle
Want to send a Christmas surprise straight to his door? It’s best to choose something that can fit through the letterbox (that way, you won’t risk your gift ending up at the depot if your recipient is out). Our For Him Letterbox Chocolate Bundle is a post-friendly collection of six luxury chocolate bars. He’ll adore sampling all these chocolate creations and is sure to think of you with every bite.
See all of our letterbox chocolate boxes and keep your eyes peeled for his favourite flavours.
Chocolate & Cacao Nib Gin Liqueur
This decadent and smooth tipple will be a fine addition to his liqueur cupboard. We crafted this delectable drink with cacao husks, juniper, fresh lemon zest, cardamon, and London Dry Gin — and it's a definite winner. We adore it served over ice, so you can taste all those nuanced notes.
Chances are, he won’t have tried anything like this gin before. So why not treat him to something a little adventurous?
Last-minute gifts for her
An elegant selection box is a beautiful way to show her how much you care. Share a moment together with a cup of tea and sampling of these delectable chocolates.
For Her Chocolate Gift Box
This For Her gift box contains Roasted Blonde Almonds, Pink Gin Truffles, three chocolate bars (salted caramel, rose and pistachio, and strawberry champagne). Gorgeously packaged in a recyclable box, this is the perfect hamper to keep under the Christmas tree until the big day.
Christmas Chocolate Truffle Selection Box
If you’re looking for a gift that oozes festivity, our Christmas Chocolate Truffle Selection Box contains a wonderful array of 21 handmade chocolate truffles. These truffles are made from single-origin, palm-oil-free, premium quality chocolate that will satisfy her chocolate cravings into the New Year.
Last-minute gifts for the kids
Whether you’re searching for some extra stocking fillers or just a few last-minute gifts for little ones, you can’t go wrong with chocolate.
Introduce the kids to some quintessentially Christmassy flavours — like warm, nostalgic ginger. Our Gingerbread Chocolate Bar pairs our signature Colombian dark chocolate with ginger to create a wonderful wintery treat. This bar also has a cute gingerbread silhouette on the front of its packet — which the kids are sure to love.
Milk Chocolate Flakes
If the little ones adore hot chocolate, they’ll be thrilled with our real hot chocolate flakes. This hot chocolate will allow them to make the creamiest cacao-rich hot chocolate at home. Of course, it’s also the ideal gift for the chilly winter season — high-quality hot chocolate is the best beverage to keep them cosy throughout January and February.
Peppermint White Chocolate Bar
Another delectable Christmas treat is our Peppermint White Chocolate Bar — perfect for anyone who adores refreshing mint chocolate. This bar stars creamy white chocolate mixed with crushed peppermint candy canes. It’s oh-so-seasonal and tastes utterly heavenly.
