Stocking Stuffers 2010 Giveaway: Guirardelli Luxe Milk All-Natural Chocolate [CLOSED]

Guirardelli is a name that always comes to mind when holiday approaches. After all, the gift of chocolate is something most people enjoy both giving and receiving. I have given Ghirardelli Squares many times to our neighbors, our children's teachers and school bus drivers, as well as our mail carrier. In fact, I often keep some extra upright bags of Ghirardelli chocolate on hand with bows on them in case we happen to receive a visit from the UPS, FedEx, or DHL driver during the days prior to Christmas. Now that the all-natural Guirardelli LUXE Milk Chocolate is available, I can feel even better about gifting chocolate this holiday.

This all-natural chocolate from Guirardelli is available in 3oz bars, as well as bags of individually wrapped squares. The bars make perfect stocking stuffers, especially if you are looking for something more elegant for adults. My favorite variety is the Guirardelli Luxe Milk Toffee, but there is also Almond, Milk Chocolate, Hazelnut, and Crisp, many of which are new flavors. If you cannot decide, then look for a bag containing an assortment.

You can find Guirardelli LUXE Milk chocolates at your local supermarket, drug store, Wal-Mart, Target, Borders, and the Guirardelli Online Shop. Through the end of December, look for specially marked packages of Guirardelli LUXE during the Walk a Mile in My Shoes campaign. For each one you purchase, there will be a code on the packaging that will prompt a $1 donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation when entered at You will also be entered to win 1 of 400 gift cards worth $200 each to Cole Haan!
