While gifting chocolates as a wedding gift appears like a good option, the newlyweds need to understand what varieties of chocolates they should give as a return gift to their guests. There are different ways in which a couple can make their return gifts unique, and below is a list of ten fantastic chocolate gifting ideas for newlywed couples for their wedding return gifts:

1. Wedding Theme Inspired Chocolate Box

Every couple keeps a theme for their wedding that classifies the type of food, decorations, and even the color code of the clothes that the guests will wear. Creating a chocolate box with the same theme can make the marriage return gifts match the theme.

If the color code of your wedding is white and red, you can select white chocolates with cranberry filling. You can wrap the chocolates with red foil and put them in a specialized box with you and your spouse’s name.

2. Box Full of Engraved Chocolates

Engraved chocolates are beginning to gain a lot of attention nowadays. There is no better way of gifting something that your guests will remember than gifting them a box of chocolates with your wedding dates engraved on them. You can contact your baker about the type of chocolates that you want to use, and you also can select the mold in which the baker will make the chocolates. It is better to write your wedding hashtag and date on the chocolates as it will make it unique and easier for your guests to remember. You can also wrap these chocolates in stylish foils with your wedding hashtag to make it look even more stylish.

3. Box of Rum Infused Chocolates

Rum and dark chocolates make up an astounding duo. It is one of the best return gifts you can give to your guests as it not only is delicious, but it is very good for health as well. Rum and Dark Chocolates help to fight chronic diseases because of the presence of antioxidants in them. This combination is also one of the richest combinations because of the superiority of rum and dark chocolate in their respective categories. To stylize the chocolate, you can ask your baker to make them in small molds that have the shape of rum bottles.

4. Assorted Dry Fruit Chocolates

You will have to agree that chocolates taste better with dry fruits. People also consider dry fruits a good gifting option as they are expensive and considered auspicious. One of the best ways in which you can give chocolates to your guests is by adding dry fruits to them. You can choose different types of dried fruits for different chocolate flavors like cashews with white chocolate, and raisins with dark chocolates. This way, you will give your guests the best of both worlds as they will get a burst of flavors in their mouths.

5. Monogrammed Box of Mix Flavored Chocolates

Packaging plays a major role in enhancing the beauty and presentation of the gift. You should get a beautiful box on which you should get your wedding date, and the initials of you and your spouse’s name monogrammed so that the box of chocolates looks more personalized. When deciding about the chocolates, you should pick ten different flavors of chocolates so that the guests can enjoy the different varieties of chocolates. Doing this, you will go the extra mile with your gifting ideas as your guests will cherish this gift for a long time.

6. Pictures of the Couple on the Chocolate

Another way to add some extra effort in your return gift is by getting your wedding and pre-wedding pictures embossed on the chocolates. Printing wedding pictures on chocolates is something which most people don’t do. You can give your guests a moment of cherishing the memories of your wedding when they open the box of chocolates and see the pictures embossed on the chocolates. You can use different pictures for different flavors of chocolates. Using cute pictures on milk and caramel chocolate, and using some funny and serious pictures on dark chocolates will intensify the fun in eating chocolates and reminiscing about memories.

7. Chocolate Box with a Personalized Note

We have forgotten the charm of notes and letters due to the surge of emails and text messages. Personalized notes for all your guests will make them feel very special. You can make a list of all the guests to whom you want to give a personal note, and then you can add the note in their chocolate box. You can ask your baker to place the note in such a way that the box looks very beautiful and presentable when your guests open it. Doing so, you will sway away from the cliché chocolate box gifts, as this will bring warmth to your guests’ hearts.

8. Box of Chocolate Coated Cookies

Cookies and chocolates are one of the best things that you can make any person happy. If you do not want to give your guests something basic and want to add a little twist to your chocolate gifting idea, you can ask your baker to coat cookies with different flavors of chocolate. Cookies have a sweetness of their own, and you can balance out the sweetness with the choice of chocolate layer. You can also request your baker to dress the cookies with different toppings like sprinklers, dry fruits, powdered sugar, etc.

9. Vegan Chocolate Box for Animal Lovers

Veganism is becoming trendy in the current market due to the people’s support towards animals and animal rights. There are a lot of places that now make vegan chocolates. These chocolates usually contain almond or soy milk and are very different in flavor when compared to the normal chocolates. If you are against animal cruelty, you can gift vegan chocolates to all your guests. This act will also carry out a strong message as to how responsible and caring you are towards animals, and will also help to cause a positive change amongst your guests.

10. Heart-Shaped Chocolates Packed in a Heart-Shaped Box

Weddings are all about love and hearts. If you want to give a cute return gift to your guests, then you should give them heart-shaped chocolates in a heart-shaped box. You can also wrap the chocolates in red-colored foil and ask your baker to insert the chocolates in a red-colored heart-shaped box. To add another charm to this gift, you can put coffee-flavored chocolates so that the guests can enjoy the heavenly taste of caffeine with chocolates.
