We are currently gearing up for Liv to officially finish primary school in a matter of days. Her final year in school hasn’t exactly gone to plan , so I am trying to make this immense change in her life fun and memorable. When the opportunity to work on a Morse Toad chocolate review landed in my inbox, it inspired me to create and end of year treat. It can be so hard to find fun, meaningful and unique gifts packed, but everyone loves chocolate right?
Read on to find out more about Morse Toad and enter the giveaway for your chance to win a £20 voucher to spend on chocolate gifts!

Morse Toad Chocolate Photo Frame

Morse Toad offer a smorgasbord of chocolate gift ideas on their site that can be personalised to suit a range of occasions. Whether you are looking for a personal gift, ideas for wedding favours or a unique way to promote your business, definitely say it with chocolate!

There are several gift formats to choose from, including: personalised chocolate with a wooden photo frame, chocolate cards, create your own hamper and more. Adding a keepsake is a wonderful idea, that will last much longer than the chocolate message!

It was a great opportunity to design a gift for Liv to commemorate the beginning of a new chapter… I know she will love it, I’m just hoping she will share with me!

Message on Chocolate from Morse Toad

It may look like just a photo in a wooden frame, but the Morse Toad Chocolate Memory Box (priced from £12.25) is so much more! Carefully open the box to reveal a personalised message printed in chocolate (22, 33 or 44 characters), with the option of adding your own message to the box lid. Choose an image to feature on the box lid (optional – £1.75) and add a wooden frame (optional £3.95) to make the box even more special.

Made from premium Belgium milk chocolate (nom nom), the chocolate is also gluten free, Halal certified, Kosher certified and vegetarian and contains no alcohol. Making the chocolate gift choices perfect for a range ages and dietary requirements.

Chocolate gifts from Morse Toad

This really is such a lovely gift idea to give… and even better to receive! Treat post has certainly cheered us up through lockdown and what better treat post than chocolate! Tell someone you are missing them and thinking of them with a yummy edible treat!

There are several delivery options available, starting from £2.95 for Royal Mail First Class – I plumped for this option and was pleasantly surprised when it arrived 2 days later. This may not always be the case, so if you do want your gift to arrive sooner, Tracked 24 and 48 hour delivery options are a consideration.

The site is very user friendly, with the ability to go back and change selections or messages, alongside checking your message is spelt correctly. When you reach the checkout point, you will be given the option of adding reasonably priced extras such as the chocolate hearts (pictured), smiley faced biscuits and cake in a mug mixes.

Back of Morse Toad photo frame

The photo frame is such a wonderful keepsake gift, the only problem occurs when trying to find just one image to include! You can choose from landscape or portrait forms, just make sure the picture is high quality for printing! The wooden frame itself is sturdy and can be stood up, however as you can see from the image above, the box can also be hung on a wall with or without the frame.

If you know someone who would really appreciate a personalised chocolate gift delivery, this is definitely your go-to site! I don’t know why I haven’t considered chocolate gifts before, but I shall definitely be ordering more for future occasions. Such a fun gift to give that you know will be enjoyed! Morse Toad is such a fabulous personalised gift site and the story behind the company is heartwarming, you can find out more about the Lymington (New Forest) based company and the lovely people involved here.

If you subscribe to the newsletter via the pop-up when you visit the site, you can also claim £5 off a £15+ spend!

The skirt came to just above ankle length and it was like a sack no shape, the jacket had shoulder pads and the neck tie was a weird crimpled material. The whole thing was a bright blue. with red piping and details. It was the most foulest thing ever. Did I mention it was the 90’s so it wasn’t in fashion in the slightest and I was a goth!.

  99. Jane Willis

    My Great Aunt gave me a bedjacket for my 16th birthday. As if that wasn’t bad enough, it was home made. She’d used an old brushed nylon sheet, with the brushed surface outside except for one of the sleeves that she’d inserted the wrong way, with the shiny side out. And it was lined, to make it cosy, with one of my Great Uncle’s old shirts – complete with sweat stains under the armpits!

    nothing springs to mind as particularly awful – but I do remember a blue top I was once given and the colour and style REALLY didn’t suit me.

  107. Simona Barrett
