The Kavey Eats Hotel Chocolat Christmas 2014 Competition (Closed)

Every year, I’ve had great fun choosing prizes from Hotel Chocolat’s Christmas Gifts range to giveaway to readers. This year, the choice was just as hard, as there’s so many tempting products that it’s hard to narrow down to three fabulous prizes.

I’ve chosen a Collection box jam-packed with goodies, the impressive Christmas Truffle Tree, which I think would make a lovely dessert centrepiece, and the adorable red and white stocking filled with moulded chocolates.

Christmas Collection Christmas Collection-2

The Christmas Collection is a generous selection of Hotel Chocolat treats. It contains an H-Box of Christmas Chocolates, a bag of Butterscotch Puddles, the Dasher’s Dream slab, a Hazelnut Bûche and 6 Christmas Eton Mess truffles.

Truffle Xmas Tree Truffle Xmas Tree-2

The Christmas Truffle Tree is a rather impressive solid chocolate centre piece. The alternating layers are 50% milk praline feuilletine chocolate and sea salted caramel chocolate. On top are baubles of milk, vanilla white and dark chocolate.

Mini Stocking Mini Stocking-2

The rather sweet Dinky Christmas Stocking has a ribbon hook to hang it up on the tree, mantelpiece or a bedpost and is filled with caramel chocolate presents, milk chocolate santas and white chocolate bells.

    I remember getting a tiny gift box from my parents on Christmas Day. I was 18 at the time and assumed it was an item of jewellery but when I opened it, I saw a pair of car keys and out in the driveway was my very first car – a brand new blue Pergeot 306! I was thrilled as I had passes my driving test a few months previous and was saving hard to buy my own car! So I was able to spend my car savings in the January Sales!

    My grandmother used to love getting food as Christmas presents. Once Christmas after we had exhausted all of the food options, I decided to give her her favourite fish. I distinctly remember ‘wrapping’ the packaged fish in tissue paper, then placing it in a festive tote bag… at the very last minute of course! Then it went straight back to the fridge! She loved it! 🙂

    When I was around 13, my sister, brother and I were opening our Christmas presents when I came across a big shaped box. I opened it up to find a speaker and nothing to match it. I was so confused. About five minutes later my sister found a speaker in her piles and again we were really confused. After a while my brother came across a cd player in his pile. My mum and dad thought they would be really funny and confuse us all by sharing out the joined present among us all to open.

    Never again let my husband wrap up, Consists of laying paper around the present and then getting the selotape roll and looping it round multiple times to save time.

    Never again though it was quite funny when the girls tried to get into the presents. “I think the elf’s need to learn how to wrap up” At least it helped pace the present opening!

    I really like to coordinate my presents to my Christmas Tree decorations and I have to admit that if somebody gives me a present that doesn’t fit my colour scheme I hide it behind the tree!! Friends in the know now ask me whether I/m traditional red green and gold or silver now.

    I take ages to unwrap a gift I like to savour it as Christmas day is also my birthday too. Most people forget that one so I only ever open presents once a year so I have this thing about holding it for ages and slowly unwrapping it. drives everyone else insane but I have done since i was very little.

    My favourite story about unwrapping presents was when I was a child, I desperately wanted a hobby horse for christmas. I had unwrapped all my presents, looking out for a hobby horse, and I did’t have one. I was so upset as it was the only thing I asked for for christmas. We then had christmas lunch and in the afternoon, my mum came in with a wrapped hobby horse saying ‘Santa just returned because he was so busy he forgot to drop this off in the night’….and it was my hobby horse! I was so happy.

    i never let my husband do the wrapping as he tends to sellotape the wrapping paper to the present to get it to stay in place – when you tear the wrapping off on christmas day, you’re likely to tear part of the present!

    My worst wrapping moment was the moment my little girl realised that the wrapping paper santa used was the same wrapping paper that I had used – and she concluded that father Christmas wasn’t real. 🙁 I’m so sad just thinking about it. I should have used different paper – just didn’t think she’d notice.

    When my sister and I we were kids, about 6 years old, I remember one Christmas when my mum switched our stockings around, when we awoke we eagerly set about unwrapping presents and didn’t twig that anything was up until about present four, simply assuming that Santa was old and had got a little muddled, by present five the penny dropped and we swapped stockings and I finally found the ActionMan I was after!!

    For my daughter’s 1st Christmas we wrapped all her gifts and put them under the tree, she was only 9 mths old so not the most coordinated. We wrapped them so she would be able to pull the paper off herself, but it took forever as she would pull of paper bit by bit, we opened loads in the morning, then some more after lunch, then more after dinner (she had 2 naps as well). We still had some left in the night so we opened more on Boxing Day, plus gifts family delivered on Christmas Day. We are not making the same mistake again, less presents or grouping some together. Plus all of the wrapping paper, it was bonkers!!

    My Mum opened a present from my Dad many years ago and it was a deep fat fryer. She was furious with him. He kept asking her to open the box and she refused as she didn’t want to ‘look at a deep fat fryer’!! Finally she gave in and there was a beautiful ring in there. 🙂

I pulled the box open and two large turkey feet popped out and I screamed – he had sent us a turkey!

    When I was younger I found my Christmas presents all wrapped up ready in my mum’s cupboard, so I felt them trying to guess what was inside that not being enough I checked inside the wrapping to see if my guess was correct! I knew every present I had on Christmas day that year and it was disappointing but my mum was sneakier than me as she had hidden a riding crop inside the roll of wrapping paper. Needless to say that one hidden surprise was my best present that year a simple whip bought me a big smile. I happily wait to to see what I get on Christmas day now.

    We had a real problem one year with my daughters present. She wanted a ‘princess’ bed with posts and canopies and drapes. We had to wait till Xmas eve to erect it ( in the living room) took AGES and we were exhausted afterwards. Only way we could wrap it was with a huge ribbon and gigantic bow round it ! Once she had seen it of course it all had to be disassembled and put up again in the bedroom !

    I once wrapped a present for my cat – I put some treats into a tissue box (the ones with the big hole in the top), wrapped up the box in paper and put a small hole in the paper to let the food smells come out. She made the hole in the paper just big enough to stick her head in. She then proceeded to walk around with the box on her head sliding it around the floor…

    Probably every year spending hours trying to opening my sisters presents! She wraps them in that terrible plastic type wrapping so it’s literally impossible to open them. And then on top of that she tapes it to within an inch of it’s life, so we have soooooo much fun trying to get into them.. no sarcasm there at all 😉

    I find it more fun giving presents. To see the person you gave the present to slowly unwrapping it, anticipation and doubt on there face. And then they open it and wonder feels their eyes… I particularly remember buying my sister the extra large £16 chocolate bar from hotel chocolate. I was 12 at the time. A first she thought it was a joke, the present being so big. Anyway, when she opened it and for a moment I don’t think she could quite believe it, she then jumped up and started jumping and dancing and giving me a big hug. She absolutely loved it and made it last for almost 8 months!!! I would love to win this Christmas collection, to see her enjoy herself again ( even though now see is an adult!!)

    My favourite memory of unwrapping presents goes back to when I was 9 years old. My sister (aged 8 at the tie), gave me a present of some earrings and a huge pencil with a small pack of pencils attached the eraser end. I opened my presents and was delighted. An hour later, she wanted the presents back as she was annoyed with me. I can look back and laugh 🙂

    One that made me laugh was opening a present from a notoriously tight relative to find a good quality bottle of wine. I was delighted even though later, I discovered a festive label still stuck to the back which made it clear the relative had obviously originally received it from someone else the year before . . .

    When I was little, my parents bought me a new desk for my bedroom, all wrapped up. I was chuffed. But the best, best thing about it, was when I opened the desk drawers there were lots of other little presents inside, all wrapped individually. And when I opened the top of the desk, there were even more! I was really spoilt that year, but it made a wonderful lasting memory – all the hours my mum spent wrapping were so worth it.

    As usual I’d left wrapping presents until the last minute so late on Christmas Eve I sat down on the floor (had a tiny flat) with a pile of presents and wrapping paper. The other tiny detail was I had a puppy. A puppy that had tired of her own toys and thought bright shiny paper and boxes looked like the ultimate game. I laid down paper, she sat on it. I pushed her off, put the present on it, reached for the scissors, she was sitting on those. I called her off them and cut the paper, folded it round the boxes and put my hand down for the tape. With one hand on the paper I patted round the floor with my other hand, no tape. I glanced around the room and the puppy had the tape in her mouth. ‘Come her’ I called, ‘Chase me’ she ‘replied’. I bribed her and got the tape back – bet you didn’t know that you can buy perforated sellotape…There’s a very good reason that puppies have round faces and big eyes, it means frustration turns to giggles not anger. Right now I’ve only bought 2 presents off my list and they’re for the dog and since I can now afford a table I won’t be needing her ‘help’ to wrap them.

Everything was going brilliantly till she read ‘Dad’ and handed the present to her day- my hubby! But the present was meant for ‘my’ dad- her granddad… Awkward moment or two whilst I sorted that out…

    I am terrible at wrapping. One Christmas eve I was up till about two in the morning getting all the wrapping done as it was the only chance I got when my son wouldn’t see. He was up at five with excitement

    I once worked at a perfume counter in a posh department store and became an expert in doing beautifully wrapped gifts – when it comes to presents that aren’t the shape of a perfume box I’m not quite so clever! 🙂

    I remember my uncle wrapping presents in newspaper one year as a joke! I thought it was great!

    I am not very good at wrapping presents so try and get others to do it for me if possible
