Dads. Kid dad, dog dad, uncle, mentor, grandpa, and friends. They are a part of our lives in all different ways, and though we celebrate them every day, Father’s Day is the day that we pause and formally say thanks for their love and counsel.
This Father’s Day, you can celebrate your Pop with the usual tie, coffee mug, day card, or cufflinks, or get a little bit more creative and give him the experience of haut-chocolat. Who says chocolate is only for Valentine's day? You can also give chocolates to celebrate dad, grandpa, or any other father figure.
Here’s our Father’s day gift guide to give your extraordinary father figure an extra special day.
A Perfect Gift of Sport
Do you have an outdoorsy dad? Take him out to the ball game. Nothing says the beginning of summer more than baseball, and this year substitute the peanuts and crackerjacks with something even more iconic, our Vosges Bapchi’s Toffee.
A recipe from Katrina’s grandmother, our handcrafted salty-sweet toffee remains a timeless favorite. In a large, copper kettle, sugar forms mountains of glistening crystals. The paddle begins to turn, and the sand-colored dainties begin to liquefy into an amber glaze. The thinnest line of smoke begins to rise just before butter and cream stream into the kettle, and the color deepens, leaving a faint burnt flavor that compliments the sweet caramel profile. For the purists, buttery toffee is touched with pink Himalayan salt, enrobed in 45% cacao deep milk chocolate, and sprinkled with roasted Georgian pecans and Texan walnuts to create the perfect bite of crunchy, buttery toffee.
A Perfect Gift of Fine Dining
The experience of a chef’s table or chef’s menu is a wonderful way to celebrate time together with dad. Enjoy new flavors and foods together and then experience the unlikely parfums of Vosges’ Ensemble du Chocolat as the finishing touch.
Our quintessential wellness and comfort foods are nestled in our new, ensemble gift box, offering to assuage every luxury chocolate desire. The Ensemble du Chocolat is a centerpiece to quench cravings. Our round keepsake gift box houses a lovely array of haut-chocolat to sample, nibble, snitch and share (or not). Lift the purple lid to reveal exotic truffles, rich peanut butter bonbons, caramel marshmallows and a Bombalina. A picturesque presentation, it is perfectly suited to be the centerpiece of your dessert table.
A Great Gift of Expression
Writing is a beautiful way to show your love for Dad, and it’s also a wonderful gift to give in return. A pen and notebook are excellent gifts that will last long after the last chocolate has been eaten. Pair it with a selection of Vosges Caramels.
Inside this chocolate caramel gift box lies pure, butter-soft caramels infused with parfums of Brazil nuts, hibiscus, blood oranges and other delectable fruits, nuts and spices. These bites offer a contrast between sweet and tart, nutty and citrusy. Part comfort, part couture, this is a unique gift that even the most finicky of recipients will adore.
A Personalized Gift of Travel
You don’t need to get on a plane to experience the luxurious liquors of the Dalmore. Enjoy our Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve Collection as a part of your Father’s Day celebration to explore how the finest Scots have imbibed for decades.
The Dalmore Single Malt takes decades to reach maturity in casks that have been hand-selected and nurtured by visionary whisky makers for over 180 years. Similarly, the proprietary chocolate of Vosges Haut-Chocolat has been perfected in their kitchens for the past two decades.
A crisp 62% chocolate shell encases a decadent ganache filling that is the perfect companion to a fine cigar. The scotch-infused ganache echoes the single malt’s finishing notes with crystallized orange peels, baobab, and Hungarian Paprika.
The Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve Bombes celebrate two brands dedicated to superior ingredients and who appreciate the art of slowly crafting perfection. The result is a masterpiece for the senses.
A Great Gift of the Outdoors
A camping trip is always a bonding experience with Dad. After a day of swimming, fishing, or sunning, a campfire is the perfect place to share time and a classic treat: the S’more.
Bring along our Caramel Marshmallows for the ultimate indulgent S’mores.
Texture helps deliver interesting flavor. The juxtaposition of a fluffy homemade marshmallow against tongue-coating caramel studded with crunchy nuts is the secret to taking good ingredients and creating greatness. Our handcrafted Marshmallows are an enduring favorite. Fluffy Madagascar bourbon vanilla marshmallow is topped with a chewy square of small-batch caramel, enrobed in 62% cacao dark chocolate, and topped with walnuts and pecans, our Caramel Marshmallows bring a luxurious twist to this comfort food classic.
A gift of time is maybe the most important gift you can give for Father’s Day. Whichever chocolat you gift, it becomes that much more special when you enjoy it together. If you want to hit two birds with one stone, some of these suggestions are perfect for Mother’s day chocolate gifts too. Of course, kids love chocolate, so any of our chocolate selection can be used for chocolate Easter baskets.
Wishing you and all the dads in your life a joyous celebration!
