C is for chocolate
Looking for that unique gift for the chocoholic in your life? Take a look at Bishop Museum's Shop Pacifica.
A truly decadent haven for shoppers, the store offers a wide range of chocolate goodies to coincide with the museum's chocolate exhibition.
For the chocoholic cook, there's a glass cutting board bearing pictures of chocolate morsels ($18), cookbooks for adults and children, aprons that come in children and adult sizes with recipes for chocolate mousse or chocolate pudding covering the front, chocolate pasta, and several sauces to add a sweet touch to a bowl of ice cream or a slice of cake.

Shop Pacifica carries everything chocolate from printed umbrellas to candles to chocolate-charm jewelry.
Or try the chocolate-covered insects or chocolate-covered ants, a great stocking stuffer -- for the right person! -- at $1.95 per box. There are also wasabi chocolate bars, curry chocolate bars and mouth-watering dark and milk chocolate bars from various countries.
For more intimate gifts for your sweetie pick up a few chocolate incense candles, lip gelati (that also contains sunscreen) and a jar of body frosting. Instructions on the jar direct you to: "Undress completely. Apply body frosting. Be creative. Use a little on special places. Or use a lot ..."
The shop is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, through Jan. 4 (the chocolate exhibit ends on that day). Shop admission is free. Just let the admissions person know you're just there to shop.
The Star-Bulletin's countdown to Christmas continues daily, one letter at a time.
