Create Your Own Gift Mix with Ghirardelli Chocolate Custom Mix

I have partnered with Ghirardelli and Find Your Influence for this feature. Opinions and experience is my own.

Ghirardelli chocolate custom Mix

Do you have a hard time fin ding gifts for certain friends or family on Holidays or birthdays? Chocolate always wins! Even if you are invited to a lot of gatherings and love bringing host gifts, these Custom Mix Gifts at Ghirardelli Chocolate are perfect to order now and have on hand! I chose a birthday tin to have on hand, some bags for gatherings and boxes of mixed flavors I chose so I can create Teacher gifts and other mini gifting opportunities for the year! One order and many gifts to come!

Chocolate gifts

Creating your custom mix at Ghirardelli is so easy and fun! First, choose your package design- tins, bags, boxes. Second, choose any accessories if it applies like bow colors for bags. Third, choose the chocolates. Their site keeps tally so you see what flavors you have chosen and how many more until your quantity limit on each product. This is great so you see your ratio – how many dark vs milk or how many kids vs adults would like so you get a perfect mix.

Ghirardelli bags

These are the bags. I chose 2 – the 75 piece Heart Bag and American Bag. I then chose bow colors to match. These are great when invited to a BBQ or house party because there is enough to share. I chose red, white and blue colored wrapper choices for my American bag. Then I chose red, pink and white wrapped flavors for the heart bag. It is fun to theme these in that way.

Ghirardelli tins

The tins are great and simple gifts. You choose the cover and there are several to choose from. Then choose 3 flavors and there will be 5 of each inside. I find that adults love dark chocolate and filled chocolate flavors while kids love the fudge, mint and milk chocolate flavors. I like gifting a tin of chocolates with a gift card if shopping for a teen.

The box of your count choice is great so you always have a stash for adding to gift baskets or creating small gifts. Bulk boxes come in amounts of 200, 250, 300 or 500. With their current sale the bulk prices hover around .36 cents a square. A great stock up price. When I buy a small bag in the grocery store they tend to run about .50 cents a square. There! I did the match for you already. You are welcome.

About the Manly Man Company

The Manly Man Company is a veteran-owned business. They’re located in Southern California. The idea started out as a modest conversation between the owner Greg Murray and his wife Jacquie. He had bought her a bouquet of flowers and asked himself: “Why isn’t there a gift that is comparable for men?” Sure, men can get flowers for occasions, but, it’s not customary. The couple kicked around some ideas and his wife presented him with the very first rendition of what is now referred to as a Man Bouquet of beef jerky: Beef Jerky sticks with thin pieces of jerky cut into flowers, given in a beer glass “vase”.

After the Murrays invented man bouquets as the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for him, Greg reached out to a schoolmate, whom he enlisted in the Marine Corps with Ben Wynkoop, to come aboard with his wife as a third co-founder, and then ventured out to the masses: online.

Under Lucky Stars Prints are a unique gift that aligns with the stars

Under Lucky Stars Prints are a unique gift that aligns with the stars

My son is 13 this month and 13 is the age when the older boys began getting gifts a bit differently. At this age they are into cash and gift cards. They are not into toys and games as much and I hated the idea of just handing over cash. So, I began looking to buy them a ‘special’ or keepsake gift to wrap. I think of gifts that are personalized or perhaps something they can carry over to their own place years down the road. We have 3 boys and these gifts are meant to make them feel like they truly have reached a maturing age. This year our youngest was gifted a Star Map print from Under Lucky Stars.

Under Lucky Stars

What is so much fun about Under Lucky Stars is that they use the date, time and location of your choice and print out a star map that is astronomically verified by NASA astronomer!!! This is the sky as it was during that special moment, such as the birth of my son and you can choose other significant dates.

Star Map gift

With Father’s Day coming up, this is a great gift for the moment he became a Dad or a wedding date or his own birth. It can be the moment you bought your first home or the moment of retirement after years of all of his hard work. Whether it be for Dad or someone special, these are amazing gift! Even at 13, this is so special to give and will always be on display in their space!

Under Lucky Stars gift

I chose a white on Blue, circled. These colors work great together for a Star Map. You can choose colors, designs and backgrounds such as a solid color or galaxy. It is very simple to choose the options and then you tell them the event, name, date, time and place. Even your small town will be available to find as the stars were aligned in your moment and place. Order it framed or unframed. The prices are very fair and the prints are an amazing quality.

Visit Under Lucky Stars and design your Star Map. Give it a try!
