Best Mother’s / Father’s Day Chocolate Gifts
Moms and dads are the people who love us the most: they cared for us, fed us, played with us and gave us everything we needed while growing up. They are the people, who just love us unconditionally. So we are always looking for that special gift for “their day”. We want to share some tips to selecting the best Mother’s / Father’s day chocolate gifts
Although we think we don’t have to wait for one special day to honor them and have a nice gesture with them, there are two days that serve this purpose: Mother´s and Father´s day.
In 1914 Mother´s day was celebrated for the first time in the USA as a national holiday. The celebration became very popular, it spread internationally and it was introduced to Germany for the first time in 1923.
This special day to honor moms is not a public holiday. However, since it is celebrated on a Sunday (the second one of May in Germany and many other countries), mothers always have a “free day”.
Traditionally, flowers and chocolates are the “go to” gifts for mom. But if you want to give it a twist, check out some ideas below.
The origin of Father´s day, as we know it today, goes back to 1909 in the USA. However, long before that in the eighteenth century, there was a certain celebration in Germany to reward dads, who had the most children.
In Germany, Father´s day falls on Ascension Day (39 days after Easter Sunday). Therefore, it´s an indirect public holiday.
Although chocolates are not always the first idea for dads, we know they will enjoy them.
