Last-minute foodie Mother’s Day gifts

Ferrero Rocher: You know the brand, it’s one of the most popular, most delicious chocolates in stores. Hands down. Whether it’s Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day, you can’t go wrong with an elegant box of Ferrero Rocher.

Pair a box (pick the biggest) of Ferrero Rocher chocolates with flowers and you are set, my friend! Both the flowers and chocolates can be picked up at any massive retailer, it can’t get any easier (or affordable).

Ferrero Golden Gallery Signature: Along with the regular Ferrero Chocolates, the brand shared with me a box of the Ferrero Golden Gallery Signature chocolates. Now, the former I am familiar with, but this is the first time I sample the latter, and let me tell you — chocolate heaven!

Mom’s taste buds NEED to enjoy these chocolates! They include a variety of flavors such as white chocolate, coffee, dark chocolate, and more.

Fannie May Pixies: Want to truly stand out with a box of chocolates that’s a little rarer? Presenting Fannie May Pixies. Now, I didn’t get to sample these, but check out the mouth-watering  description, “the perfect blend of hand-poured caramel, lightly roasted pecans, and chocolate.” Be right back…ordering a box now.
