Choosing the perfect wedding gift

September 28th, 2016

One of the life’s most memorable days are the wedding days and people obviously want day to be special. But the guests in wedding sometimes get very confused about what to get the’ to be wed’ couple. If you are someone going through such confusion, then please do not be worried much as solution is at your hand now. You surely want something the couple can put into use and not something which would gather dust in the store room. After all, the present you give is love you have for them and the best wishes you give them through the gift is valuable to them.

To make your stress a little bit less, I have tried jotting down some points you should keep in mind while getting the perfect gift.

  • One of the things which come into mind is that if cash is better than a gift. Personally I would suggest that not to go for cash as you never know what would be the best amount to give so buying something nice is better than cash. But if are running out of time because people are pretty busy nowadays then you can go for cash but keep that as a second option.
  • Wedding hampers are available nowadays which are really attractive and you get to buy them in the stores and even online. But if you can take out time and put together some things in a basket and arrange them and make your own one, it would be far more thoughtful.
  • Classical gifts like white dishes and crockery may seem boring to you but they are functional and the couple will need it to set up their home. So be sure it won’t be a waste. Moreover, a really attractive set will a good choice.
  • You can even plan something with other guests and get something expensive like a branded mixer grinder along with a juicer or you can even go for expensive kitchen sets which would be normally too pricey, if you are buying alone.
  • You can even go for customized gifts such as make a collage of their photos and laminate it and make a wall hanging out of it or you can give a locket which has their names engraved in them. A customised gift shows that you took time to put together your ideas and make it memorable.
  • Don’t think of home decors as mostly they go into waste or to be frank they are often reused as gifts. Besides you never know what someone will like so better leave that out.
  • As I have already told that wedding hamper is useful so you can even put together some toiletries which are always useful for newlywed couples. You can even include a bottle of good wine which never goes unappreciated.
  • A ticket to a holiday trip will be fabulous idea as the couple needs to have a lone time to spend together.

The above tips will surely be handy when you are confused about wedding gifts. So best of luck and I am sure your gift will surely be a good one.

A guide on how to taste the little slice of heaven – ‘chocolates’

September 23rd, 2016

This particular type of food is derived from cocoa, but from the journey to cocoa and finally becoming our most beloved chocolatesis a long and a tough one. But hey it’s worth it! I bet the best job among all who helps the cocoa to become chocolate is obviously that of the chocolate tasters. Nothing can be better as a paid job. Let us take a look at how we can make our chocolate loving taste buds to a more serious chocolate tasting connoisseur’s buds.

Here is your ultimate guide to understand the flavours, aromasand various textures of your ultimate beloved chocolate:

  • First start by tasting with all your senses.


Look at the colour of the chocolate well. It should tend toward the reddish brown shade as that is the indicator of good quality. The finish should be glossy not matte.


Next comes the aroma, which is very important for chocolate tasting. A maximum part of chocolate tasting depends on how you can understand the smell well. Always look for a rich smell. You should be able to detect other smells from the chocolate like smells of spices, fruits, flowers, nuts, etc. depending on what ingredients or flavours are put into it. Some chocolates smell like medicine which indicates it is of a very low-grade.

So next time send some chocolates by post to your friends and family for some fun loving smelling experiment. Plus, it will be a bonus gift for them.


The chocolate should make a snap sound when you break the piece. This sound also depends on the amount of cocoa present on the chocolate.


Take bites slowly and the flavourswill reveal themselves slowly to you. Always take a deep breath while you let the chocolateslowly melt inside your mouth. This helps in proper understanding of the flavours present. There should be no grainy feeling when you bite it. As cocoa butter melts at body temperature the chocolate should melt right after tasting it and should not take much time. There should be a buttery and creamy taste after it starts melting. Try to identify the bitter sweetness as it melts. Try to recognize if there is any floral, fruity, spicy, woody or nutty taste in the chocolate. Do not rush in the beginning as chocolate tasting takes a lot of time to develop.

  • Wait for some time between tasting different samples so that the previous flavour goes away.
  • Drink some water in between samples to clear away residual chocolate form your palate. Sparkling water can help you in cleaning your mouth.
  • Clean your mouth well before beginning any tasting session.
  • You can use apple or bread for cleaning your palate of lingering flavours from your last meal.
  • Always ensure that the chocolate is not very cold and keep it for some time in the room temperature before tasting.

This was your basic guide to chocolate tasting. Now go and start tasting with your friends and family and those of who are staying away from loved ones can also share this experience with them.Just send chocolates to them via online gift companies.
