Gourmet Holiday Gifts
Like other North American countries, Canadian’s chocolate purchases ramp up around the winter holidays. Chocolates a classic gift for family, friends, and even business associates during the busy Christmas and New Year’s season, and are an undisputed favorite for Valentine’s Day. Especially in larger cities such as Toronto, Montreal, and Calgary, Canadians are also increasingly expecting gourmet gifts to do more than simply deliver something delicious. Canadians increasingly sophisticated chocolate purchases put a premium on gifts that can be customized to the occasion and are delivered with a sense of style. zChocolat’s unique holiday collections meet Canadian expectations for both exceptional French chocolate and elegant delivery. Their annual Christmas collection features limited-edition packaging in a number of different sizes, with options ranging from unexpectedly stunning ballotins to solid mahogany boxes. Valentine’s Day receives a similar treatment, with luxury packaging making the perfect containers for handmade chocolates.
Warming Hearts with Luxury Chocolate in Canada
An international cocoa organization known as the ICCO estimates that Canadians consume roughly 6.4 kilos of chocolate a year. Assuming an average chocolate bar size of 40 grams, that works out to around 160 chocolate bars per Canadian per year. That puts them in the top ten chocolate-loving countries in the world! And while a few Canadian chocolate companies are beginning to earn a reputation for their locally-produced candies, many Canadians still prefer European chocolates over domestic options, especially when the chocolate is destined as a luxury gift for someone special.
Romantic Chocolate Gifts Delivered Anywhere in Canada
Since the 1880’s when the Canadian side of Niagara Falls became a popular site for newlyweds, Canada has been considered the Honeymoon Capital of North America.

Customization and quality matter to Canadians, who consider themselves among the most thoughtful givers in the world.

Customized Business Gifts Delivered to Canada
Canada’s reputation for thoughtfulness extends into their bustling business culture as well. Evidence of their thriving economy is especially obvious in the country’s most populated city, Toronto. As the 4th largest city in North America (trailing only Mexico City, New York City, and Los Angeles), the Toronto skyline is peppered with nearly 2000 skyscrapers and is home to tens of thousands of companies. While extravagant business gifts aren’t a cultural expectation in Canada, gifts reflecting appreciation and respect are very much appreciated. In most cases, the level of personalization is actually more important than the inherent value of the gift itself--for many Canadians it really is the thought that counts. zChocolat provides several convenient options for customizing gourmet gifts. Delicious under any circumstance, the inclusion of an engraved nameplate, custom wax seal, and individualized message card are just some of the ways to give a gift from zChocolat a personal touch. Including a company logo or customized image on the box lid are other ways to make sure your gift makes an impact.
