For some, Christmas represents dancing sugarplum fairies and snowy nights spent with family. But for many others, Christmas conjures up images of two simple things: gifts and candy. These items encompass the joy children feel at Christmastime and the agony of their bellies, filled with sweets and chocolates. Since Christmas is so associated with candy and gifts, combining the two and personalising them is sure to result in many happy smiles.

Apart from traditional Christmas candy, there are many other varieties of chocolates and candy that can be customised to add a personal and Christmas touch. Those with a sweet tooth can select an assortment of candies such as chocolate-coated almonds or raisins from World's Finest Chocolates.com, and personalise the label on the box with a family name or greeting such as "Happy Holidays from the Smith Family." Customers can also include a festive photograph. For those looking to engrave their personal message directly onto a chocolate bar, Totally Chocolate.com offers customers the opportunity to customise a giant 2-pound chocolate bar from start to finish for £19.40. Select an image and/or message for the lid, as well as an inscription to be engraved on the chocolate bar. If you're feeling less daring, customise one of the many pre-designed layouts with a personal message. Totally Chocolate.com also offers the opportunity for customers to personalise a 45-piece box of milk or dark chocolates with each chocolate being individually engraved.

For a change of pace from bite-sized candies, large candy bars make a great palette for personalisation. They have large wrappers that can be customised with Christmas colours, family photographs, names, family crests and personal messages. Some companies also offer the option of customising the inside of the wrapper. Almost all of your favourite chocolate bars can be personalised, as well as other items such as lifesaver wrappers for those less inclined toward chocolate.
