Differences Between a Christmas Gift Basket & Gift Box Tower

We love being a part of the sweet world of gift giving, it is really a treat for us to hear from our satisfied customers who let us know how excited someone was to receive a gift from Totally Chocolate.

At Totally Chocolate, they always strive to make it simple and clear for our amazing customers to order chocolates or to find the perfect gift. Even for those classically hard-to-buy-for folks like bosses, dads and someone who has everything.

One unique product they have are gift towers. But whats the difference between a Gift Tower and a Gift Basket?

It’s a great question! And we love answering it because it gives us a chance to talk about the amazing gift towers . They are personal, delicious and totally unforgettable!

Gift Baskets

A Gift Basket is a collection of items that are generally stock and standard. They are often a combination of a company’s best sellers + not best sellers (you have to get rid of them somehow!). That’s why you might find a gift basket that has some incredible products, alongside other products that are likely to sit in the cupboard.

Gift Tower

A Totally Chocolate Gift Tower on the other hand is a tiered set of delights that typically consists of caramels on the top layer, cookies in the middle, and a large 2 lb bar on the bottom for mega-impact. Sounds interesting? At Totally Chocolate, we have listened to our customers and work to give them exactly what they want.

That’s why we also do a fully custom version of every tower we offer – that means the products and packaging are fully customizable (but not what contents are available in each tier).

Here are some of our best selling and most delightful Totally Chocolate Gift Towers to help you get the idea.
