Giving … inspired by Godiva

Godiva has been associated with the very best in Belgian chocolate since 1926 when Joseph Draps created a new line with extraordinary richness, premium quality, and iconic style. He sought a name for his company that embodied timeless values balanced with modern boldness – and chose Godiva after the famous Lady Godiva who rode through the streets of Coventry, England, naked in order that her husband (Lord Leofric) would lift the taxes he had put upon his subject.

Today the GODIVA brand is known – and loved – in over 70 countries around the world with an ever growing presence in airports and on airline, ferries and downtown stores. In many airports Godiva has its own instantly recognisable branded boutiques and shop in shops, as well as selections on offer in the Confectionery sections.

For travellers, Godiva offers the perfect self-treat or gift purchase – with many items available which are exclusive to duty-free. In other words, you won’t find them on the High Street at home anywhere. Tentations du Chef, for example, is a limited edition chocolate box produced exclusively for travellers by Thierry Muret, the executive chef of Godiva whose praline creations have seduced consumers for many years.

This long awaited prestigious chocolate collection brings together 18 pieces of delicious chocolate with six different recipes, guaranteed to give a superior twist to any occasion – and it makes a wonderful and thoughtful gift.

The brand is probably best known for its delicious range of ‘Gold Collection’ gift boxes and ballotin assortments, with special editions available at seasonal and celebratory times of year, such as Valentine’s, Easter, Christmas and Chinese New Year. .
