We’re fully aware that the designated day for honouring dads has ended just a few days ago, but we believe this should not stop you from expressing your love and gratitude by giving them gifts and telling them how much they mean to you! With all the hard work that dads put into financially sustaining their families as well as being role models that their children can look up to (among many other things, of course), we believe that a single day of celebration is not enough.
Chocolate is a staple gift for almost any occasion, but merely getting a pack or two at the grocery store seems…nothing out of the ordinary. And since we specialise in making creative chocolate and lolly bouquets and hampers, we thought that it would be the perfect sweet gift for all dads! From choosing the right brand of sweets to the ideal alcoholic beverage to go along with them, here’s a comprehensive guide on Dads and Chocolates!
Ever since the coronavirus outbreak in 2019, a lot of people have started to become more and more conscious about their health. In an attempt to boost their immune systems and lessen the risk of contracting the virus, they’ve decided to ditch their old habits and live healthier lives. Does that sound like your dad? Sounds like us, too, but truth be told, adopting a healthy lifestyle is actually quite tough—especially when everything that tastes good is also deemed detrimental for your health!
And so, we present to you: Guilt-freelicious.
This particular bouquet comes with an assortment of six full-sized items from The Sugarless Confectionery Company, which uses stevia—a safe, natural, and noncaloric sugar alternative. Thus, if your dad is someone who can’t, shouldn’t, or doesn’t want sugar in their diet, then this is an ideal treat to satiate their love for all things sweet…minus the guilt.
Oh, and if your dad’s more of a liquorice kind of guy, then you’d better not pass up on the opportunity to surprise him with our Darrell Lea Liquorice Megalicious Bag! This fantastic goodie bag is filled with only the best-selling Darrell Lea products, including Batch 37 Liquorice, Liquorice Allsorts, and Raspberry Twists. And in what way is this black confection healthy, you ask? Well, if you must know, the rich, unique taste of black liquorice comes from its primary ingredient, molasses. These have recently been found by studies to be high in antioxidants, which offers tremendous benefits for your digestive system. In fact, its extracts are linked to a reduction in ulcer-causing bacteria! Apart from this, did you know that Darrell Lea black liquorice contains 75% more antioxidants than blueberries? It’s no wonder Darrell Lea manufactures 40,000 km of liquorice a year, a jaw-dropping length that’s actually enough to wrap around the Earth!
As if those things weren't enough to make your dad happy (is anything ever enough to repay his efforts?), the Megalicious Bag also comes with his choice of beer or pre-mix, or even Coke No Sugar for those dads who don't drink.
It's not easy to give a gift on an occasion that will never come again. You want it to be perfect, but there aren't do-overs, and you can't say "I'll make up for it next time," because who the heck experiences fatherhood for the first time twice, right? Thus, people just end up feeling like whatever they get will never be good enough!
Stuck in a similar situation? Don’t worry, because we’ve got your back! If you know someone who's just experienced the thrills of becoming a father for the first time, make this momentous occasion something that’s one for the ages by giving them a Babylicious Baby Bouquet! Not only does this come with a huge block of Cadbury Dairy Milk for the new dad to enjoy, but it also comes with a lot of new stuff for the little bundle of joy! It’s got several Johnson’s baby products, a large plush teddy, two pieces each of face washers and bibs, and two pairs of socks. The bouquet is also available in three colours: pink, blue, and brown!
What more can the new dad ask for? Actually, there is one other thing…
Our Bubbalicious Large Baby Hamper, no doubt!
This hamper comes with two reusable tin cases that are stocked with stuff for the entire family. For the baby, it has four different Johnson’s baby essentials as well as bibs, singlets, interlock wraps, jumpsuits and, of course, a plush teddy that’s great for cuddling. As for dad (to share with mom!), this extra special hamper contains extra sweet treats: 10 pieces each of Ferrero Rocher, assorted Lindt, and Milk Chocolate Belgian Hearts, along with a block of Cadbury Dairy Milk.
Whichever you go for, we guarantee that your gift will be one that they’ll always remember with deep gratitude!
Not everyone has been blessed with a dad who’s achieved work-life balance—the type who‘s able to work 9-5 and yet, for some unfathomable reason, is still able to attend all their children’s extracurricular activities. You’d find them there, always present on the sidelines, cheering on their kids during soccer matches. Some, meanwhile, can be found in the front-row seats of their children’s school play, the first to laugh at jokes and the first to shed tears at every terrible scene.
Does the description fit your dad? Consider yourself extra lucky. You’ve always been the star of his life, so it’d only be fitting to return the favour and give him chocolates in the shape of…stars! In that case, we’ve actually got several options for you:
He’s indecisive. He can’t decide. Oops! Does it seem like those lines were written specifically about your dad? Then, chances are, he might also find it hard to pick just one certain brand of lolly as his favourite. In that case, what should you do? Spare him from the burden of having to choose by giving him everything—which is exactly what you get with our Dessert Boxalicious Lolly Gift!
This box of sweets has definitely got everything that any lolly-loving dad could ask for. Whether he’s in the mood for jelly beans, lollipops, sour candies, gummies, or a wild combination of all four types of lollies, this box is nothing short of fantastic. This whopping 1.2-kilogram lolly package contains more than enough sweets to satisfy even his most fervent candy craving, so it’s also perfect for sharing with the whole family!
This one’s for those dads who always go the extra mile just to see their family smile.
Remember that one time when you mentioned wanting to eat a specific dish, and the next day, you’re surprised to know that your dad took the time out of his busy day to cook it for you? Or what about that time in which he willingly took thousands of pics just to help you achieve the perfect IG-worthy post? Oh, and who could forget that one Halloween where dad became the Elsa to your Anna? Whether or not you can relate to those wholesome dad moments, we’re confident that you’ve also got some unique, personal ones that you’ve retained as core memories.
Seems like it’s always the little things that show how big someone’s love is, huh? This time, let your love for dad shine through in the best way possible with our Sweetsalicious Lolly and Chocolate Tower! This comes with a kilo (or 1.5 without alcohol) of treats from an extensive array of brands—Allen’s, Chupa Chups, Nerds, Trolli, Dairy Milk—and some creamy Belgian Milk Chocolate Hearts and Stars! The fun doesn’t end there. In addition to the sweets, you could also get a mini bottle of alcohol of your choice! We carry a lot of brands, so surely, there’s one among these that cater to your dad’s alcohol preference: Johnnie Walker, Chivas Regal, Baileys Irish Cream, Bundaberg, Jack Daniel’s, Jim Beam, and Smirnoff. We did not come to play—we do have quite a wide selection for you to choose from.
Haven’t made up your mind yet? Then you might want to check out some of our other products! Regardless of the bouquet or hamper that you end up getting for dad, we’re pretty sure that he’d feel super loved and cherished.
Also, know that all of our products come with a complimentary message card that allows you to write a short note for an added personal touch. If you read our previous blog, then you would understand that this is especially meaningful if your dad’s love language is words of affirmation.
