Chocolate happiness, gifted with elegance

The festive season isn’t just one day. It’s debating when to put up the tree, and when it’s too early for mince pies. It’s making your list and checking it twice. It’s sneaking a shake of your presents, and the look on their faces when they open theirs. At Hotel Chocolat, it’s our mission to help you gift chocolate happiness, never more so than at this time of year.

We invent, create and ribbon-tie your gifts so we can see for ourselves that they’re perfect, down to the finest detail. From festive sleeves, Selector gift boxes and chic bottle bags to Concierge bags and wicker hampers, it’s the attention to detail that means you can look forward to big smiles and you-shouldn’t-have head-tilts when your gifts are opened this year.

John Lewis & Partners: A look at the 7 Christmas decorating theme for 2020

Christmas is a time of self-expression, inspiration and shared experience, a communal moment of joy and wonder that shares more than a few similarities with how we, as a community, react to great art. Which is why this year’s decorating schemes at John Lewis & Partners have taken inspiration from key art movements.

‘This year’s themes have been inspired by the colour and ideas within art and the belief that art is for all,’ says Jason Billings-Cray, Partner & Junior Buyer, Christmas Shop. ‘Christmas is a time for being creative, whether that means the time and effort put into preparing your home or simply bringing friends and family together to make great memories.’

Join us on a tour through our Bloomsbury, Art of Japan, Renaissance, Impressionism, Art Nouveau, Post Impressionism and Pop Art-inspired themes and bring a touch of fine art into your home this Christmas.
