I love buying gifts, especially for my family. Giving gifts isn’t always easy peasy, especially when you have people who say to you ‘don’t bother with a birthday present for me, because you can’t give me what I really want’.

She was thrilled to have her own Kindle and the immediate effect was increase in reading. My daughter is anyways inclined to reading. This has been the result of story books we used to buy for her instead of toys from an early age. Anyways coming to the point Kindle is indeed the gift for all kids 8 and above. You have to buy the gadget once and then fill it with books your kids want. The Kindle version of books are inexpensive and your kid will be flaunting his new gadget to his friends.

Chocolates – A woman’s first love

There are three things a Canadian woman cannot resist – diamonds, shopping and chocolates. Chocolate, once a staple bitter drink of a South American army, is now a wonderful concoction of all things luxurious from nuts, cocoa butter, wine, caramel, liqueurs, Irish crème and at times just on its own. Nothing can charm its way better.

The art of luxurious chocolates is synonymous with Belgium. Handmade, carefully crafted chocolates are a Belgian heaven. It is even said that Belgians eat more than 10,000 kilograms of chocolates each a year. Now that’s a lot of chocolate.

Luxurious chocolates are known for a whole lot of things. They are beautifully shaped and crafted with utmost care. Ideal for gifting, these are the ultimate joy that you can package and give to the one you love. From chocolate fondues, rum shots and truffles, there’s no dearth of varieties to make your loved one’s day.

Truffles are perhaps the most expensive chocolates you can buy. These are pure raw cocoa ingredients that are concocted with rich cocoa butter and exotic condiments. Truffles are the chocolates you pop in your mouth and they have a gorgeous centre that burst and melts in your mouth. Truffles can be of every flavor, from almonds, brazil nuts and strawberries, to cranberries, rum and mint. The key is to find a perfect blend of the right ingredients and the right texture. Now, that defines a truffle.

Pralines have been favorites of the Egyptians, the Kings of France and even your loved one. Pralines are chocolates with wonderful soft centers. These chocolates are made by beating pure cocoa, cocoa fat, cocoa butter and different nuts together. This creates a luxurious paste that is simply gorgeous. Some pralines add chopped pieces of nuts and fruits to add another dimension to the taste of these chocolates.
