Something Different for Someone Special
At ArtyChocs, we rarely produce a 'printed' box. Instead, we enjoy creating (and offering for sale) a number of Handcrafted and Hand-decorated Gift and Chocolate boxes of our own design, in a variety of shapes and sizes. Styles utilised include: Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Seasonal and Themed. In addition: Child of The Time - based on a series of waterclour paintings by Majolein Haworth.
Perhaps the most notable feature of our gift boxes is that each one is unique ... making the basis for a special gift for a special person in your life, and because the boxes are - in general - unique, they are available to purchase only once although we can create something similar - just ask.
Gift Boxes can contain Chocolates, Traditional Dutch liquorice, Bathroom Delights, Lavender and other goodies, to suit the occasion; many are supplied with a complementary Greeting Card - personalised upon request.
As already indicated, the Child of The Time Collection - a series of watercolour paintings by Marjolein and which feature on several of our box designs - depict children of the early 1900's dressed in vintage style.
Prints are available upon request. Contact Us for more information.
Canvas Prints are also available, with or without a custom made frame - please do not hesitate to contact us for details.

It's hardly a business !
As many will know, constructing gift boxes by hand along with all the other handcrafting and hand-decoration necessary to produce a unique and finished product - can take a lot of time. It is not usually possible to recoup - in monetary terms - for the hours spent in construction and at the same time present a product at a reasonable price.
We consider ArtyChocs to be more of a 'hobby' website, rather than a 'business', where people can browse our designs/styles and view examples of the gift boxes and other creations produced to clients requirements or from our own stock designs and ideas. Many of the handcrafted items featured on the website have been sold, although you can view some of the [gift] items, currently available to purchase, on ebayUK - click on AUCTION in the menu above.
Now available: A4 and A3 Digital Prints - on 300gsm Fine Art Gallery Paper, using fade resistant UV pigments inks- from £18 + p&p.
In addition, any of the 'Child of The Time' paintings can be supplied as Premium Deep Edge Canvas Prints - 406 x 304mm, 100% Cotton, with a 38mm deep return - from £35 + p&p (without a custom frame)
The Canvas Print pictured, on the easel, has a [cotton] crochet frame - full depth, as requested by a client.
Simply contact us to discuss your requirements or perhaps you might want to let us loose on it ! ie. the frame design and materials.
