Sweet treats go great with a feature film and there are many people who love movies and the snacks that go with them. If you're looking for a unique gift for the movie lover in your life, then consider a custom chocolate box. Instead of just purchasing a general chocolate box from the store, a custom box gives you the ability to select each piece and design it with movies in mind. As you're planning the movie-minded gift, consider the following four ideas. Each idea features different themes associated with the movies. They can also be mixed together to form a variety of themes all in one chocolate box.

Movie Theater Inspired Chocolate Box

There's something special about the popcorn and treats that come from a movie theater. Recreate those same flavors and tastes when you're planning a custom chocolate creation. To get the flavor of popcorn, look for chocolate pieces with buttery and salty features. Examples include milk buttercream and salted buttercream. Capture the flavors features in movie theater candy bars with filled chocolates. Add in chocolates with fillings like caramel, peanut butter, and nougat. Select two or three of each type to easily fill up a box and have a nice treat for enjoying movies at home.

Printed Chocolates

A number of custom chocolate companies have the ability to print directly on the candy. This edible printing makes a great gift for movie lovers and will create an amazing visual presentation. A number of images and symbols can be used to for the chocolate designs. For example, you can have printed images of a film reel, a box of popcorn, an awards trophy, a DVD disc or the Hollywood sign. You can also have the person's favorite movie titles printed right on the chocolate pieces. This is a great way to personalize the gift and make it more meaningful.

Movie Party Pack

Make a custom chocolate set just a small part of a large movie party gift. Pair the chocolate with the person's favorite beverage like a bottle of soda or wine. Pack in additional snacks like bags of popcorn or other candy that can pair well with the chocolate. Pack a few movies in with the party pack. Blu-Ray and DVD discs make great gifts. You can select a new release that the person has never seen or purchase one of their favorite movies. Along with the movies, consider gift cards to streaming movie services. This allows the person to instantly connect and stream a variety of films from the comfort of their own home.

Chocolate In the Movies

Get some inspiration for your personalized chocolate box by basing it off a movie that features chocolates. A number of films highlight chocolate scenes and each one can be the inspiration for your custom gift.

  • Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory: The famous movie has a whole lot of chocolate in it. Choose premium chocolates to represent the rich taste and mouth-watering scenes from the film. Solid pieces of dark and milk chocolate are commonly featured in the movie.
  • Forrest Gump: As Forrest tells his life story, he picks pieces from a chocolate box and exclaims that "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get." Capture this theme by purchasing a box of chocolates where every piece is different and truly a surprise for the person you're giving it to.
  • Chocolat: The romance film from the year 2000 focuses on a small chocolate shop in France. The movie features a number of delicious chocolates, including a number of fruit-filled treats.
