Hotel Chocolat Father’s Day Competition Giveaway

THIS COMPETITION GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.

It’s fair to say that I’ve been neglecting you all recently and for that I apologise. It has been a mad few months for me with my lovely little online boutique, Sophia’s Choice and it has taken up rather a lot of my time. As you know I also write my Green Lifestyle Blog of the same name and I’ve been catching up on posts there for the past couple of months. But I’ve not run away never to be seen again and I intend to be back here very soon with new posts to bore inspire you with !

So, in way of an apology I’m back with a lovely competition giveaway for you. And this one’s for all those lovely Dads out there. In just over two weeks time, we in the UK & the US will be celebrating Father’s Day on 15th June. It also happens to be my hubby’s birthday that day too, so he’s in for lots of goodies and pressies, lucky chap.

Back in December you may remember that I reviewed a fabulous box of chocolates from Hotel Chocolat. You can read my review here. Hotel Chocolat make the most divine chocolates and in the end we bought some of those “Mingles & Jingles” for the girls and a Christmas Wreath for family members to indulge in after our review. The company is fair trade having their own ‘engaged ethics’ programme, they have a chocolate tasting club and are constantly bringing out new products to keep the chocolate connoisseur happy.  

Hotel Chocolat Father's Day Collection Prize

They have kindly offered my readers the chance to win one of their Father’s Day Gift Collections:

“An irresistible collection of our finest chocolates paired with our Special Reserve Tawny Port – perfect for sipping lightly chilled on a summer’s evening.

Contents: Mini Hazelnut Bûche, High Cocoa White Nano Slab, 70% Dark & Nibs Nano Slab, 50% Milk Fruit & Nut Nano Slab , Smooth Praline Trio, 5cl Special Reserve Tawny Port”

To be in with a chance of winning this lovely Father’s Day Gift Collection, all you need to do is pop across to Hotel Chocolat’s website, have a browse at their “Gifts for Him” section and tell me which one you’d buy for your Dad for Father’s Day.

If you’d like to add to your chances of winning then you can also tweet about the giveaway, Like on Facebook and Follow on Twitter but these extra entries are not compulsory. Please use the Rafflecopter box below to enter. All entries will be checked and a winner will be chosen at random by Rafflecopter from all valid entries. The winner will then be announced on the blog within 24 hours of the competition ending.

This competition is open to UK & US residents only. If you win you will need to give me your name and address for the gift collection to be sent out to you by Hotel Chocolat. The competition will run from the eve of Wednesday 28th May until midnight on Saturday 7th June.

The winner will be notified by email, announced here on the blog, on Facebook and on Twitter. Good Luck everyone x

  83. Throughout my life there one person has always been there.
    Who was there, in the front row, for every basketball game, orchestra concert and cross country meet? Who was there when I graduated high school, college and graduate school? Who was there when I had a tumor and when my boyfriend got cancer and lost his leg? Who was there when I bought my first home and my water heater broke and my roof needed replacing? Who paid for it all by working a factory for 40 years, standing on his feet, without lunch breaks? My dad has always been there. But why do I love my dad? Because he visited me when I broke my foot on Valentine’s Day, because he cleaned the lintstuff out of my hairdryer (when I didn’t even know that was possible!), because he wiped my nose when I was little, because he tolerated my friends even when they were annoying and ridiculous, because he didn’t laugh when I learned to play the violin and because he never missed a cross country or swimming meet, basketball game or recital, parent/teacher conference or any other important date. Why do I love my dad? Because he’s the best and he always finds a way to love more than I ever thought possible!

    This year hasn’t been any different for him. This year is like every other. My dad is still there. Every day. For anything. For everything. Thank you, Dad.
    Why ELSE should you select my dad?

    Because he has HEART: he demonstrates affection, kindness, compassion, and daily expressions of love in both words and deeds.

    Because he is empathetic: he identifies our feelings, thoughts, and beliefs, and then our bond strengthens.

    Because he is flexible: during new or challenging circumstances, he will weather the storm with me.

    Because he is respectful: He treats everyone with high regard simply because they have inherent value as human beings.

    Because he is trustworthy: he is dependable--and he creates a safe environment.

    Because he shows appreciation: through positive praise, and expressed gratitude, he fulfills our most basic human needs.

    Because he is committed: He is dedicated to the well-being of each relationship and he is loyal and motivated to devote quality time to each family member, resulting in a firm family foundation.

    Because he can resolve conflicts: He sees disagreements, stress, or crisis as opportunities for learning and growing.


    That's the kind of dad he is--he's always thinking of other people! And I'd love to have someone think of him for awhile.

    I hope you select him.
