We’ve recently teamed up with the fantastic Morse Toad who produce a wonderful array of personalised chocolate gifts, ideal for Fathers day or anyone’s birthday or special occasion. It’s a really simple process to order,- choose the product you want to send, select an image from their gallery, or upload your own. You can also write a personalised card (or leave it blank if you’re a secret admirer!), and – finally – add your personalised chocolate message. Then, select when you’d like your chocolate gifts online order delivered (right away or in time for an occasion), and hit ‘order’. Their gifts are letterbox friendly, so the recipient will come home to the gift on their doorstep. Even if they’re out during delivery (because no one likes to have to go and collect a parcel!).
And if that isn’t enough they’re also offering new customers £5 off their first order (if you spend more than £15).
Our friends over at Harrogate Mumbler had some to try, here’s what they thought…..
It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it – so I decided to check them out for myself just to make sure these chocolate gifts were up to our Mumbler standards! And guess what – they’ve got the Mumbler seal of approval (phew!). The website is really easy to use, their main product is the Personalised Photo Chocolate Gift which starts from £10.25. They also do personalised Hamper gifts and biscuit gifts too. You can order them and personalise them for any occasion! They’ve got a great array of Father’s Day gifts – so we went for those.
I ordered “The Fathers Day Chocolates” – which had 22 chocolates, a personalised message plus my own photo that I uploaded. The cost for all of this was £12.00. Without adding the personalised photo it’s £10.25 (they have their own generic images you can choose from) personally, I definitely think its worth the extra to pay for printing your own photo. You can make your chocolate messages longer – and prices go up accordingly. We went for the 22 chocolate message I LOVE YOU DADDY with a few hearts thrown in.
Ordering was really simple – I uploaded a photo I’d taken from my phone – a warning message came up to say the image was small so might not come up great (or words to that effect!) but I just pressed OK as I wasn’t really sure where i’d get a bigger photo image from.
The whole process was really simple and the cost of posting and packaging are added at the end of checkout. They’re delivered via Royal Mail. It does state on their website that due to the current situation most orders are taking 2-5 days but may take longer. So if you are ordering for Father’s Day please do so as quickly as possible to make sure they arrive in time. That said, I placed my order on Thursday afternoon and they arrived on the following Monday morning.
The packaging is lovely – and fits through the letter box. And guess what – the photo was absolutely perfect! It’s a lovely gift, something we can EAT and KEEP! You can literally have your cake and eat it! The box they come in can then be hung on the wall. Its great – you’ve also got the option to add a wooden frame to your gift if you want when you’re ordering – we didn’t, but you can still hang the photo no problem.
So now on to the important stuff… The chocolate! I’m not afraid to say I’m a bit of a chocolate snob, I lived in America for a while so I know bad chocolate when I taste it. And I’m very happy to report that this is not bad chocolate -it was delicious! In fact between me, Dad and our daughter I think we made quick work of eating all those 22 chocolates – they were SO moorish! So if you are tempted to order them – don’t make my mistake – I’d recommend that you go for the 33 or 44 chocolate options! They use top quality Belgian milk chocolate – and you get a really good old chunk for every piece!
If that isn’t enough to make you go out and order them straight away – then surely the fact that there is zero waste will! The empty box is now a lovely keep sake for the husband – a nice picture of him and our daughter hanging up in his study!

Disclosure: Harrogate Mumbler was lucky enough to receive this trial box for free, however we pinky promised to only write a truthful account. Phew, we really enjoyed it! (otherwise that could have been awks!)
