Serenata Chocolates – a review and giveaway

Serenata ChocolatesWhen you’ve been feeling a bit under the weather and not quite yourself, there is nothing better than receiving a little hamper to cheer you up!  I recently received a parcel from Serenata Chocolates containing a nice bottle of Rose wine and a 200g box of Belgian chocolates.

Serenata ChocolatesThis particular hamper is currently on offer at £24.99, but would normally be priced at £34.99.   I’m not sure I’d pay the full price for this particular selection, but the sale price seems on par with other retailers offering a similar package.

Serenata Chocolates

Serenata Chocolates offer a range of options for all occasions and you can add a teddy bear or balloon as a chargeable extra.  If you order by 10pm your order will be delivered the following day for free.

I was a bit disappointed with the presentation of my hamper, if it had been a gift it wouldn’t have left the right sort of first impression.  The wine was bubble wrapped and the chocolate box was loose, both were packed in a Serenata Flowers box.  I would have expected the items to have arrived in an appropriately packed Serenata Chocolates box personally.  But, that aside, the wine and Belgian chocolates were very nice and didn’t last long!

Now, if you fancy sampling these for yourself, then you could just be in luck.  I can offer one of you the same hamper that I received, pictured above.  Just complete the giveaway entry form below for your chance to win – good luck!

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. My hubby, he’s been a huge support to me after an accident and illness has made me more dependent on him for a good while.

  2. I’d send it to my best friend because she’s lovely. Then I’d pop round and share it with her 😉

  3. Probably to my husband because I know he would give me the wine as he doesn’t drink. Everyone”s happy!

  4. After sending a few to others, I`m going to be selfish and send it to myself, just for the fact I`d like to treat myself for a change!

  5. I’d give this to my mum as she’s feeling really lonely & down cause of my dad passing away last year.

  8. I’d send it to myself, but I’d share it with my best friend on our weekly catch-up as she’s had a tough time of it lately and this would cheer us both up!

  9. I would give the wine to my lovely husband and keep the chocolaes for myself. It would be nice to be able to treat ourselves.

  10. Myself. I am pregnant with our second and craving nothing but sugar. Preferably in chocolate form.

  11. My lovely mum is on a diet at the moment and is really missing chocolate so when she reaches her target she would love this wonderful prize.

  12. id share it with my husband as parents of 4 children we don’t get treats just for ourselfs and this defo wouldn’t be shared with the kids

  13. My finance as he treats me all time and really looks after me and deserves a treat for working so hard

  14. I’d send mine to my mum as she’s been working really hard lately as she’s just started a new career making dresses and costumes for a local theatre supplier after having a back/neck operation last year. She finally got to see some of her costumes worn at an event last weekend and she was really proud so i definitely think that she deserves a treat!

  15. this is gonna sound strange but i would send it to my penpal, shes going through a rough break up at the moment and think this would really cheer her up

  24. I would keep it for myself…sadly (but true unfortunately) my husband forgot my birthday this year so it would be a belated birthday treat for me

  25. I’d send a hamper to my mum. She’s been very ill recently and it would be good to give her something nice.

  42. My husband. He has almost come through his illness and I’m really proud of how far he has come. He deserves a treat 🙂

    we’re both 18 and we’ve been together for almost 6 years, since we were 12
    he’s amazing and all he ever does is do the best for me, he doesn’t even think twice before doing something, he’s always trying to benefit me in some way and I don’t need him to because all I want is his love 🙂
    I’d love to treat him with this but knowing him he would share it all with me anyway 🙂

  44. I’d send it to my hubby, because he’s been working hard all through the bank holiday marking exam scripts – and he’s so bored!!!!

  48. I would send the hamper to my mother in law as she is having a real tough time at the moment caring for my father in law who isnt very well and has been told he is not going to get any better. She also doesnt drive so has to rely on us to take her to the shops and other errands needed doing. So I would really like to win this hamper for her to put a smile on her face x

  49. I would send it to my mum to say thank you for all the help when I had my daughter recently and for travelling 200 miles to come and babysit my 2 daughters for the day so I could go to a wedding.

  50. I’s send it to my mum for everything she does to support me and to show her how much I love her.

  51. I would send it to my mum to cheer her up after recently finding out she has cataracts developing in both eyes and she’s only in her 50s!

  52. To myself, but make sure it was a secret – its my birthday soon and the few times I get chocolate on my birthday the children always notice and demolish it before I get any

  53. my nan has just had her purse stolen and keeps saying she feels silly and old so I would give her these to cheer her up and show her she is loved x
