Warm days, long nights, and great memories - we’re in the thick of celebration season! It’s always exciting to be a guest at a friend or family member’s special day. Nothing beats dressing up, indulging in delicious food, and taking part in the festivities. Whether you have an upcoming wedding, bridal shower, or baby shower, Dorinda’s can help add a little sweetness and make it a great moment!

You can never go wrong when you show up to a celebration with chocolate. Ok… maybe we’re a little biased, but our confections make the perfect gift or addition to the food table. Check out these awesome ways to show your love and appreciation when attending your next special event, courtesy of your Reno chocolate experts:


1. Gift Our Wine and Chocolate Pairing


The bride and groom are soon to be paired for life. Similarly, when chocolate is paired with an expertly-chosen wine, you’d be amazed at the flavors and awesome experiences that come out. Each month, we bring in a new winery and accompanying representative who truly knows their vino. The recipients of your gift get to try their wines, paired with 4 of Dorinda's handcrafted chocolates. Attendees will discover the wines’ origins, how it's meant to be enjoyed, and which chocolates pair just right with them. This is a perfect gift for newlyweds or brides to be! 

Wine and Chocolate Pairing Details:
Available Pairing Dates: July 21st, August 18th, September 15th, and October 13th
$35 pre-order. $45 day of event
Where: 727 Riverside Drive Reno NV (Downtown location), 5-7pm
Pay online, call in advance, or pay at the door
Only 75 tickets available - reservations are highly recommended!


2. Gift Our Chocolate of the Month Club Subscription


This gift keeps giving long after the vows have been read or the baby has been born. Each 30, 60, or 90 days, the Dorinda’s team hand-selects artisan chocolates for you, straight from our collections. These can be signature pieces, something brand new, or pieces that capitalize on the season. Take your best guess at whether your gift recipient would prefer all milk chocolate, all dark chocolate, or a mix of both in their basket. Additionally, we toss in a 6 piece box of our Award-Winning Sea Salt Caramels with each delivery. The curated package will be shipped out by or around the 15th of each month and ice-packed during the warmer months. In a world of subscriptions, our Chocolate of the Month Club is a must-gift!


3. Gift Our Chocoholic Package


Looking to give a delicious spread of confections to the expecting parents or newlyweds? Our Chocoholic Gift Package contains a hand-curated bundle full of the most delicious chocolate products we have to offer! Or, to make an even larger statement, the Ultimate Chocolate Lovers Gift Package takes it up a notch with more chocolates, pastries, and sauces, just to name a few. Whichever package you choose, the recipient will be whisked away on a taste bud journey. With each silky smooth bite, they’ll think of you and the happiness you brought to their special day.

4. Bring Custom Chocolates – Or Let Us Bring Them

5. Gift Our Digital Gift Card

Dorinda's Chocolates Gift Card


Still stumped on a gift? When in doubt, give the soon-to-be married couple or expecting mother a Dorinda’s Digital Gift Card. They’ll be able to cash out the specified amount on our website to order whatever their sweet tooth desires. They don’t even have to be a Reno chocolate lover, because we can ship nationally with our door-to-door service. So if their search results for “specialty chocolate near me” have come up dry, a gift card is the answer! Our staff hand-prepares each order, and will send it in insulated ice packaging during these warmer months. You can’t go wrong when giving them a ticket to prepaid chocolate!
