Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and for those who want to celebrate their mum, grandmother, or other parent figure on 19 March, a box of their favourite chocolates is a failsafe option.
For some mums a box of the hugely popular Milk Tray is just the pick-me-up they love to see on Mothering Sunday, while Cadburys and Lindt bundles are equally a hit.
However, for some who want to give their mum a little extra treat perhaps Hotel Chocolat’s vast array of chocolates may be the go-to gift.

While some love nothing more than a creamy Galaxy, or a classic Dairy Milk bar, others may prefer white chocolate, or dark chocolate delights, perhaps even a more flavoursome sweet treat, such as salted caramel or mint flavoured delicious-ness.
There are boxes of chocolates to buy, but also hampers filled with all the chocolates you could ever desire, and even personalised creations too to add that extra special touch this Mother’s Day. Lucky for you, we have found the luxe chocolate gifts that are just irresistible.
Cadbury chocolates are the ultimate chocolates, and have been for many years. While the classic Dairy Milk may be a firm favourite in the household, others may drool over a chewy Curly Wurly. Well, this bundle has it all, and can be personalised with a special message to the matriarch of the family.
Our top pick: Cadbury Mum’s Selection Box Gift, £20, Cadbury
We know Milk Tray is a Cabury creation, but we believe it deserves a number of it’s own, because it is the only box of choccies my mum can’t say no to.
There are different sized boxes, but this contains 530g of chocolate bites; from the classic Truffle Heart to the Raspberries and Cream, this bundle also has Salted Caramel melt-in-the-middle nibbles to indulge.
Our top pick: Cadbury Milk Tray Chocolate Box, £9, Sainsburys
