I'm a sucker for anything with my name on it, especially chocolate. Personalising a gift makes it way more impactful and much more memorable. Take this chocolate plaque I was sent by York's Chocolate Story in 2019, for instance. The fact that it is unique and personalised with my name makes it extra special to me - and highly memorable. It's not every day someone writes your name on a chocolate slab, is it?
Since there were gifts, there have been personalised gifts. You can pop a name or a photo onto pretty much anything, from glassware to stationery, travel accessories to kitchen accessories, and from personalised duvet covers to customised underwear.
So what's worth checking out when it comes to personalised chocolates? I've scoured the Internet looking for the best examples of personalised chocolate and compiled a list of my favourites below. I've listed the personalised gift services below in order of descending price, with the most impactful options at the top and the most affordable products nearer the end.

Bear in mind that most bespoke personalised chocolate products take a few days to produce (sometimes up to a week), so order with plenty of time to spare to avoid disappointment. Perhaps avoid these if you are looking for a last-minute Christmas present on 23rd December.
1 Personalised Sweet Tree
£33.99 | Personalised Jar
Flowers are so last year. Instead of giving a bunch of flowers, how about a plant? And instead of a live plant that requires love and attention, how about trading it in for a chocolate tree instead?!
Beautifully formed, this 35cm sweet tree is completely edible, thanks to its stem made with crispy toffee crunch chocolate. Maltesers and Smarties decorate the base and the tree itself.
While you can't personalise the tree, you can personalise the clear jar housing the base. You've got up to 20 characters to play with, so you could add a name or write a sentiment. Then, once the tree has been demolished, the clear base can be reused to hold nick nacks, or perhaps you'll use it to grow live plants instead (cress, perhaps?).
If you would rather get something a little smaller, there's also a 25cm tree available.

2 Personalised Cadbury Chocolate Boxes
£26.95 | 20 bars | Personalised Outer Box
Made for the Cadbury chocolate lover, these personalised chocolate boxes are stuffed full of 20 bars of Cadbury Dairy Milk, Cadbury Crunchie, Cadbury Twirl, Cadbury Caramel, or Cadbury Wispa.
While the bars themselves come in normal retail packaging, the outer box is personalised with both a name and a message. The name can contain up to around 15 characters. All the boxes with the exception of Cadbury Wispa are designed with a single line of text with up to 20 characters. The Cadbury Wispa box, however, can accommodate up to 32 characters over two lines.
3 Giant Personalised Milka Chocolate Bar
£25.95 | 900g | Personalised Outer Wrapper
Milka is a continental chocolate bar with a cult following in the UK. Now, thanks to Dutch company YourSurprise, you can get a giant personalised Milka chocolate bar created for friends and family. Kind of.
It is, in fact, a 60cm x 26cm package of nine 100g Milka chocolate bars, designed to look like a massive Milka chocolate bar. That said, it still crams in 900g on Milka chocolate so it'll go down very well with whoever is lucky enough to receive it.
You've got lots of personalisation options too, with up to 15 characters for a snappy message, up to 18 characters for a name, then up to 145 characters over five lines for a much longer and more sincere message.
In case that wasn't enough, you can even upload a photo to truly customise this giant full colour sleeve that's designed to look a unique giant Milk bar.

4 Personalised Chocolate Birthday Smash Cake
£24.99 | 1kg | Personalised Iced Message On Top
Smash cakes have been around for a while now and their popularity shows no sign of declining. This alternative ditches the boring aspect (the cake) and replaces it with Belgian milk chocolate.
The 23cm chocolate shell of the cake is enhanced with pink, blue and yellow colours, and is topped with your personalised message. You've got up to 25 characters to play with so there's room for something like "Happy Birthday Steve," for instance.
Inside is a mix of confectionery including mini marshmallows. Smash through the chocolate shell to reveal the goodies hidden inside.
Customise your Personalised Chocolate Birthday Smash Cake
5 Personalised Milk Chocolate Smash Cup
£24.99 | Personalised Iced Message On Side
What if you like the idea of a chocolate smash cake but want something a little bit different? Well, how about a smash CUP?
Cast in milk chocolate, this cup contains all sorts of goodies, from Galaxy Minstrels to Kinder Bueno. If you know someone with a sweet tooth then they'll love diving into this.
Better still, you can personalise the message on the side to tailor it to a special occasion or event. You've got up to 25 characters to play with, so you can fit a name and a sentiment in there.
Oh, and the wooden spoon isn't included, but you can use whatever you like to smash this chocolatey treat open.

6 Build A Box of Chocolates by Cocoapod
£24.95 | 44 pieces | Personalised Chocolates
Have something to say? Say it with chocolates - literally. This 44-piece gift box can be personalised with plenty of phrases up to 44 characters in length. Spacing the words out are pretty, decorated chocolates.
Unlike most other services, at Cocoapod you can choose various symbols and punctuation, so you can say exactly what you want to say. This makes it ideal for giving as a personalised birthday present, a Christmas gift, a novel Valentine's Day gift, or perhaps a Mother's Day or Father's Day gift.
Once you've nailed your message using the online previewer, you can choose between a box of milk or dark Belgian chocolate bonbons for the letters. For the spaces, you've got the choice between milk, white, dark, strawberry or orange chocolate bonbons. You can even choose the pattern used on this bonbons to truly personalise your box of chocolates.

7 Thorntons Personalised Alphabet Truffles
£20 | 235g | Personalised Chocolates
Nothing beats having your message written on chocolate itself. Thanks to Thorntons' Alphabet Truffles, you can say exactly what you want in the medium of chocolate - so long as you keep it under 22 characters!
The milk and white chocolate cubes contain chocolate truffle centres and are each finished with a letter that spells out your chosen name or phrase. They are presented inside a Thorntons chocolate box. The recipient simply lifts the lid to read - and then eat - your personal message.

8 Personalised 10" Chocolate Pizza
£18.50 | Personalised Chocolate
Replace the boring aspects of a pizza with Belgian chocolate and you've got yourself a chocolate pizza. This sweet alternative by The Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Company is presented in a pizza box and makes a great gift for most occasions.
This Heavenly Honeycomb 10" chocolate pizza features a milk chocolate base with milk chocolate shavings, white chocolate and milk chocolate covered honeycomb balls, and vanilla fudge as the toppings.
In the centre of the pizza is a white chocolate disc that can be personalised. You've got the freedom of up to 24 characters to tailor your message, so you can create a 'good luck' chocolate pizza, a 'happy birthday' chocolate pizza, or a 'merry Christmas' chocolate pizza.
Customise your Personalised 10" Chocolate Pizza
9 Personalised Toblerone Bar Box
£17 | 360g | Personalised Box
The famous triangular box of Toblerone Swiss milk chocolate is synonymous with travel. While I wouldn't complain wrapping my chops around this massive° 4.5kg bar, it isn't personalised in anyway. Fear not, though, as you can now personalise a box for a more manageable 360g Toblerone bar.
Choose from a range of box designs, then choose whether you want a milk, dark, white, fruit and nut, or crunchy almond chocolate bar inside. Next, pop in a name. It has to be under 10 characters, which might be a struggle, but it gets printed in the classic red Toblerone font on the box.
Next, you've got 30 characters to add a short message on the rear of the box. Predefined text includes words to say happy birthday, congratulations, express love or show you care about a special friend. Once complete, head to the checkout and your customised bar of Toblerone will be created and shipped out.

10 Lily O'Brien's Personalised Photo Chocolate Box
£16.50 | 290g | Personalised Photo Inside Lid
Rather than printing directly onto the box, Lily O'Brien's does things a little different. Upload your photo on their website and they'll print it out. Their Personalised Photo Chocolate Box contains a sleeve into which your printed photograph is slid into, personalising a 290g box of their Petit Indulgence Collection chocolates.
Lift the lid and you'll find 30 chocolates to much through and a photo or collage of your photos. You can upload up to three photos and choose from four photo layouts for this box.
While you can't personalise any of the text, you can add a gift message to the shipment when you choose the 'Buy this as a gift' option at the checkout.

11 Personalised Quality Street Tin
£15.99 | 1kg | Personalised Packaging
For a while it was exclusive to certain John Lewis & Partners stores, which was great if you lived near one. Then, Coronavirus wreaked havoc on the world and the personalised tins of Quality Street moved online, meaning anyone can buy one from Nestlé.
Choose either a standard assortment or load your tin with up to six varieties of your favourite sweets. Mine would be full exclusively of Green Triangles as everyone knows they're the best Quality Street sweets, right?
Then, tap in a name. You've got up to nine characters to play with, so you might need to be creative if you're sending the to some inconsiderate soul with a long name. Monty instead of Montgomery, for example. You'll also need to keep it clean as staff review each one to make sure you're not making a tin of Smutty Street.
Customise your Quality Street Tin
12 Personalised Cadbury Coffee Cup & Chocolate
£15.99 | Personalised Cup
This personalised reusable coffee cup is ideal for giving as a gift that will be used time and time again. Made from natural fibres, the cup is BPA-free, BPS-free and phthalate-free.
It comes with a sleeve to protect your hand and a handy removable lid. While it can all be popped in the dishwasher, you'll extend the life of the artwork when you wash by hand.
Choose from a number of styles inspired by bestselling chocolate lines. For good measure, there's also a matching bar of chocolate included too. As for personalisation, you've got up to 15 characters for a name.
13 Personalised Cadbury Minature Heroes Tub
£14.99 | 600g | Personalised Tub
Here's another tub of chocolates you'll have seen in the supermarkets, but with a personalised twist you will not.
Inside, you'll find a 600g assortment of your favourite Cadbury chocolates in miniature form. There's the Dairy Milk chunk, Crunchie Bits, Dinky Decker, and Twirl as well as the rest of the Cadbury Heroes line-up.
The lid, however, is personalised with text of your choice. You've got up to 40 characters over two lines to play with, so you can add names and messages. Firebox reckons "Emergency rations!" and "Hands off!" would be good options to go with. Pretty much anything goes, so long as you keep it clean.
Customise your Personalised Cadbury Minature Heroes Tub

Crunchy Maltesers meet creamy truffles in this personalised box of individually wrapped treats.

15 Personalised Cadbury Roses Tub
£14.99 | 600g | Personalised Lid

You can use up to 20 characters which should fit most names and in some cases even two, making it a great gift for couples. You could instead opt for a short message, but remember to keep it clean.

20 Personalised Nutella Jar
£9.99 | 350g | Personalised Label on Jar

If you're shopping for a David, a Helen, or a Brian, you're fine. You're even catered for if your friend is called Montgomery, Bronwyn, or Mohammed. But if you are buying for a Quintavious or Snowdrop, you'll need to get in touch with Intervino (the company behind the personalisation) so see if you can get the name added to the approved list.
The personalised label is affixed to a regular 350g of Nutella spread and shipped out to you inside a red Ferrero Nutella branded gift box.

Choose from milk caramel sea salt, white raspberry popping candy, milk almond honey nougat, milk hazelnut, dark almond sea salt, classic milk, or extra dark bars.
Where Tony's Chocolonely's personalisation tool really comes into its own is the ability to upload graphics from third party graphics programmes. Combine that with the volume pricing (stretching beyond 3,500 bars) and I think this is a winning combination for wedding favours or corporate orders.

25 Personalised Cadbury Dairy Milk & Milk Tray Sleeves
From £2.69 | From 45g | Personalised Sleeve
While Cadbury Gifts Direct doesn't let you personalise the wrapper of a chocolate bar, it does let you personalise the keepsake sleeve that wraps around either a bar of Cadbury Dairy Milk or a box of Cadbury Milk Tray.
There's a good deal of choice too, with bars of Cadbury Dairy Milk ranging from mini 45g sticks to giant 850g slabs. If you would rather give a box of chocolates instead, the Cadbury Milk Tray sizes range from the cute 78g box through to the more impactful 530g option.
When it comes to personalisation, you've got up to 27 characters to play with on the front of the bars and up to 150 characters on the rear. That means you've got plenty of scope to pop a name on the front and a personal message on the rear. You can also upload a photo to the front of the pack (except on the tiny 45g bar as there's not enough space).
Boxes of chocolate allow a little more room on the front, with up to 30 characters available. There's only 110 characters allowed on the back but you do get space to add a second photo.
Sleeves are designed with the current season in mind, so you get Christmas themed sleeves in the run up to 25th December, for example. You might want to bear this in mind if you are looking for a birthday or 'thinking of you' sympathy gift.

You can personalise the text along the top of the front of the bars, and have up to 40 characters here so you can get creative with witty one-liners. It doesn't stop there as you have a further 200 characters available on the reverse of the bar, so you can pour your heart out here.
