It's December 1 (or at least it was when we write this) so you'll be opening a little window of discovery today. Unless you haven't got an advent calendar, which will make the next 23 days significantly less cheer-filled than if you did. And no one wants that. Maximise the happy with The Chocolate Quarter's advent range — from £36, there's a train, a tower, or a classic Victorian scene, all filled with the mother-son team's handmade chocolatey wonderfulness. And when we say handmade, they come up with each flavour combo, make the ganache and design the shape and finish. A trip to the JQ store is fully recommended, though their online store will do the job. Be sure to get a Monkey Shoulder chocolate in your life either way.
