Wine? Yawn. This year, up the wow factor of the traditional host gift with a box of whimsically decorated chocolates from Gâté Comme des Filles (“Spoiled Like Girls”). While chocolatier (and Chez Panisse alum) Alexandra Whisnant hopes to eventually set up her own shop, she’s currently sharing a temporary storefront in Harvard Square with bean-to-bar producer Somerville Chocolate, making it easy to pick up a pretty package filled with festive flavors—think whiskey truffle, fresh peppermint, and white chocolate-cardamom—on your way to this winter’s parties.

December 1 through February 28; 29 Church St., Cambridge,, launch party Thursday, December 1, 6-9 p.m., Facebook.
