What do Hunter Boots, Heinz soups, Barbour jackets, and Fortnum & Mason jams all have in common? They all have a very famous and important fan: Queen Elizabeth II. While it’s easy to interpret members of the British royal family as quietly loving a certain brand whenever they step out in a certain dress or shoes on repeat, nothing quite compares to an actual royal seal of approval — and in the British royal family’s case, that would be a Royal Warrant of Appointment.  

A Royal Warrant is issued by the Queen, Prince Philip, or Prince Charles as prestigious marks of recognition to businesses who have been supplying goods and services to their households for at least five years. Luckily, you can find chocolate gift boxes from Charbonnel et Walker, a Royal Warrant-holder and one of the Queen’s favorite chocolate brands, on Nordstrom. And while its gift boxes sold out overnight for Valentine’s Day, nearly all of them are back in stock now

Hand-made from recipes written by one of its founders, Virginie Charbonnel, these luxurious and creamy truffles simply dissolve in your mouth. The brand’s pastel-colored containers are reminiscent of the iconic pastry boxes seen in Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, and make the perfect companion to red roses and fine wine. 

However, the Queen isn’t the only royal who has loved Charbonnel et Walker’s sweet delicacies. Founded in 1875, the chocolatier was formed after encouragement from the Queen’s great-grandfather, King Edward VII; the brand also counts Princess Diana and Princess Margaret as past customers. Even entertainment royals such as Oscar Wilde and Taylor Swift have been patrons of Charbonnel et Walker.

It’s not hard to see why its chocolate cremes are enjoyed so much by the crème de la crème. And with the gift boxes selling out overnight last week, it’s clear that many shoppers love them too. You’ll find nearly every Charbonnel et Walker gift box that previously sold out back in stock now, so shop them below to treat your special someone (or yourself!) like royalty.
