The holidays are upon us. Many people are scrambling to find the perfect gift for that someone special on their holiday gift list. Other people are looking for gifts for other important people in their life such as your favorite hairdresser, mailman, child’s teacher, neighbor and co-worker.
Sometimes it’s hard to buy gifts for those people (hairdresser, mailman, teacher…) because you don’t really know what kinds of things they like or don’t like.
Chocolate is always a nice gifts option (make sure the recipient is not allergic to chocolate). Personally I always enjoy a box of gourmet chocolates. It’s a nice gift and its something I can share with my family.
Chocolate also makes a nice hostess gift. If you are planning on attending any holiday (or New Years) parties this holiday season don’t forget to pick up a gift for your lovely hosts.
Lindt has a wonderful collection of chocolate truffles that come packaged in such a way that makes them ideal for gift giving without having to wrap them.
The special collection is known as the Lindt New York City Collection. The new collection features an assortment of gifts in packaging adorned with the iconic sights of New York. The collection is available at Lindt Chocolate Shops in Manhattan (692 5th Avenue and 665 5th Avenue) and includes four different pieces at various price points so you are sure to find something to suit your budget.
All of the packages are travel and luggage-friendly too so you can take them home with you as a sweet memory of your time spent in the city.
New Yorkers can stock up on these beautiful sets to give as gifts and even keep a few on hand to serve to holiday guests.
The available sets include;
New York 75 Count LINDOR Gift Bag: Guests can create their own assortment of more than 20 varieties of LINDOR truffles in this elegant paper gift bag, designed with the New York skyline and a snap top closure for travel ease (SRP: $25).
New York Novelty Gift Box: Filled with assorted Milk, White and Dark LINDOR truffles, this festive box has a clear window to showcase the beautifully wrapped LINDOR truffles (SRP: $12).
New York LINDOR Gift Box: Give the gift of LINDOR with this customizable brown and gold box filled with 30 irresistibly smooth LINDOR truffles in assorted flavors. A clear window on the box lid allows a personal message or business card to be customized to any recipient. (SRP: $22).
New York Swiss Luxury Selection: A sophisticated collection of elegant European-style pralines are adorned with the silhouette of New York City against a stunning blue backdrop (SRP: $18).
I am fortunate to try out all four gift sets.
We gave the New York LINDOR Gift Box (the one in brown) as a gift. We wrote “Happy Birthday” and the recipient’s name on a piece of paper and slipped it into the window. We didn’t have to wrap it. She loved it! Plus the box is well made. It can be re-purposed to house jewelry, photos or knick knacks.
The 75 Count LINDOR Gift Bag is HUGE! It’s much bigger then it appears in the photo. There are 75 truffles in the bag. That is more than enough to offer to holiday guests or bring it into work to share with your co-workers. I am going to give the bag of truffles to my co-workers so that they can all enjoy some.
If you purchase the 75 count gift bag in the store, or online, you can choose your flavors.
I LOVE the box of New York Swiss Luxury pralines. Oh my! They are SO good and very rich and flavorful. As much as I wanted to eat all of them, just one is more than satisfying.
I love the box (and bag) design. It’s a perfect representation of this big, beautiful city of ours.
The packaging looks wonderful “as is”. I would never think to wrap any of these.
Each box/package is filled with a nice assortment so you are sure to find your personal favorites. I happen to like ALL the truffle flavors.
I have seen the New York City collection sold on the Lindt website (LindtUSA.com). Currently the 75 piece gift bag is on sale – buy 3 get 2 FREE! That’s 375 Lindt truffles! That would be a great deal if you are hosting a party or even an office party.
