From Mayans to Mother's Day: The Evolution of Chocolate Gifting

Have you ever wondered why chocolate is a popular gift for special occasions and what is the history behind it?

The History of Chocolate Gifting

Chocolate gifting has its roots in the ancient civilizations of the Americas, particularly the Mayans and Aztecs, who used chocolate as a form of currency and in religious rituals. They believed that chocolate had spiritual and medicinal properties.

As chocolate spread throughout Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries, it became associated with luxury and indulgence. By the 19th century, chocolate had become a popular gift for special occasions like Valentine's Day, Easter, and Christmas.
