Holiday Gift Guide: Lindt Chocolate Bear Gift Baskets {Review & Giveaway}

Lindt logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Jaclyn!}

There's something special about enjoying chocolate all year long, but when the holidays roll around, it just doesn't seem right to let the season pass without enjoying something a little extra special. It's just tradition, you know?

Although there is no shortage of chocolate found in the stores, I always find it to be a little risky to pick something up because I never know how good it is going to taste. Whether I'm purchasing a sweet treat for myself or crossing a name off of my holiday gift list, the last thing I want is to be dealing with is cheap chocolate - the horrors!

Instead, on the opposite end of the spectrum, I always know that I can turn to the brand of chocolate that is in a category all its own when it comes to being delicious and luscious: Lindt.

Lindt chocolateFirst created in 1845 when a father and son manufactured solid chocolate in their small confectionery, Lindt's entrepreneurial spirit and passion for making chocolate is still strong today. In the past 160+ years, it has become known as one of the most innovative and creative companies making premium chocolate, with six production sites in Europe, two in the USA and distribution and sales companies on four continents.

For 2011, Lindt has introduced a wide variety of festive gifts and indulgent treats to their holiday collection, making it easy to celebrate the season with something delicious. The cutest of the bunch? The new Lindt Bear. Look at this sweet guy!

Lindt BearBringing excitement, joy and a heartwarming smile to the holiday season, the Lindt Bear is made with premium Lindt milk chocolate, dressed in gold foil, and finished with a red ribbon. When he arrived at our house, I could tell right away that this hollow, 3½ oz bear would be great for decorating a table or topping off a stocking.

Lindt reviewAlthough I felt a little guilty eating him, the Lindt Bear is another example of their chocolate expertise - he's delicious! I love milk chocolate and this happy fella was smooth and rich from his ears down to his toes. Retailing for $4.50, this is a great way to surprise just about anyone on your list. Standing 5" tall, this isn't a tiny bear, he's just right!

So what are you waiting for? This holiday season and New Year, don't show up empty-handed at your next social occasion, head to your nearest Lindt retail location and become the hit of the party when you arrive with something tasty. Featuring premium chocolate products to satisfy every holiday need – gift giving, stocking stuffers, entertaining, personal indulgence, and home d├ęcor – the Lindt holiday collection has something for everyone!

Whether you need something small like a Truffle-filled ornament or something large like a gift box, chocolate is a gift that will always be well-received! And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be prepared to celebrate with something mouth-watering and sweet, because...

One lucky person will win a Lindt Bear Gift Basket*!
