Our Gift Pick of the Day: Chocolate-Covered Jalapeños

For the foodie who thinks strawberries are way too conventional

Chocolate-Covered Jalapenos

Chocolate Covered Company 1-Pound Covered Jalapeño Box
They’ll try anything – Anthony Bourdain style – so don’t expect them to accept a box of chocolate-covered fruit willingly. (They’re more daring than that. See: head cheese.) Instead, take them on a gastro adventure you’ll actually enjoy, too: fresh jalapeño peppers hand-dipped in rich dark, milk, and white chocolate.

Our A Gazillion Gifts Boutique is now open.

Our Gift Pick of the Day: Candied Graham Crackers

For out-of-town relatives with a sweet tooth

3018663004_RLLZ_1

Chocolate Covered Co 18pc Graham Cracker Set
Remember when you were a kid and Great Aunt Shirley sent the strangest gifts? Dad would snap a quick pic of you and that chirping music box before it was permanently relocated to the dusty guest-room bureau. Fact is, even though they’re family, chances are they don’t know you that well if you live 2,000 miles away. Here’s your solution: Graham crackers hand-dipped and rolled in Belgian chocolate, nuts, and assorted candies. We guarantee out-of-towners will open their gifts with delight (so expect a hand-written thank you note in the mail).

Our A Gazillion Gifts Boutique is now open.
