It’s nearly Mother’s Day and you still haven’t bought a present, have you? Gelato Messina has thought ahead, even if you haven't.

Each Messina chocolate box contains 12 handmade chocolate and gelato bonbons, featuring six different flavours inside. The gelato flavours include blood-peach sorbet with rosewater gel, mandarin puree with salted-butter caramel gelato, and shiraz sorbet with dark-chocolate ganache and popping candy.

The chocolate boxes will be on sale from May 4 and come with a card so you can leave a sweet note too.

Each box costs $39 and can be ordered at the Messina store in Fitzroy.
