Chocolate Products With The Personal Touch

The holidays will soon be upon us, and chocolate lovers will be flocking to your shop or bakery for sweet treats to make the season bright. Why not surprise and delight your customers with a personalisation service to help them win at gift-giving this year?

Go old school and pipe white or coloured chocolate onto your bars, slabs and pralinés to spell out your customer’s name or chosen message. Or, create a range of point-of-sale stock with slogans like ‘Happy Holidays’, ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘Deck the Halls’. You could even let your creative side go wild and pipe holly leaves and berries in the corners, or turn your white chocolate bars into carrot-nosed, coal-eyed snowmen!

Alternatively, use our range of festive transfer sheets to decorate bonbons, bars and shards, or to create unique chocolate lollipops. Our Christmas Gnome design is sure to put a smile on any Gonk fan’s face!

Break The Mould This Christmas

If you’re looking to make a real statement this Christmas, why not invest in a Mayku Form Box and turn your original designs into one-of-a-kind chocolate moulds?

You could use whatever materials you have to make letter moulds, allowing you to spell out any message in chocolate – take a look at this video from Mayku showing how to do exactly that! Or use numbers to create a unique chocolate advent calendar, just pop your (beautifully finished with gold creative powder) chocolate numbers in one of our stylish 24 or 25 choc boxes, and you’re all set!

You could even create a whole range of Christmas themed chocolate bars, from personalised stockings to chocolate coins and baubles, using the Mayku Form Box. The only limit is your imagination!

Bespoke Bars and Branded Bonbons

Boost your brand awareness (or help your customers to boost theirs!) by decorating your bonbons with your business name or logo. Our edible transfer sheets can be customised with your company logo, or any other design you’d like. You could create an exclusive Christmas range with your branding in red and green, or even gold, decorating a few of your chocolate creations in each box to really make your products stand out this festive season. They’d make the perfect corporate Christmas gift!

Another option is the classic chocolate plaque. Made from dark, milk or white chocolate, and printed with your logo or chosen design in (almost) any colour, these delicious discs make the perfect personalised cupcake or cake topper. You can even embed them in bars and slabs, giving your products a premium look, to complement the exquisite taste!

Fancy recreating this delicious hot chocolate? Take a look at our blog Festive Hot Chocolates and Indulgent Inspirations for the recipe.

Personalised Packages Tied Up With String

These are a few of our favourite things! Whether you want to wrap your creations in ribbons and bows that reflect your brand colours, or you’d like to give your products a luxury feel with a foil stamped logo on a premium quality chocolate box, we’ve got a packaging personalisation option for you.

With custom branded bags to showcase your chocolate squares, Neapolitans and other sweet treats, and a wide range of both rigid and folding boxes, suitable for hot-foil blocking in a variety of colours (up to two per design), there’s a whole world of personalisation for you to discover! Just pop a shiny gold sticker on and a pre-tied bow and your customers will be lining up to buy their loved ones a delicious gift from you this festive season!

Perfectly Personalised Gifts For Every Occasion

Customisation is not just for Christmas, give your creations a personal touch all year round. Once your customers have caught the bespoke bug, they’ll want to celebrate every special occasion with a personalised chocolate gift. 

From thank you teacher gifts and bespoke birthday chocolate boxes, to personalised Mother’s Day bonbons and Father’s Day slabs, you’ll be able to cater for the whole family and every memorable moment, whether it’s a graduation, engagement or baby shower.

Our custom chocolate plaques and transfer sheets are also great for corporate events, such as conferences, open days, fundraisers and trade shows. Simply send us your customer’s logo and we’ll do the rest!

The possibilities of personalisation are endless, so why not give the gift of custom chocolate this Christmas, and really show your customers how much you care?
