Thorntons Promotional Codes

Can you resist temptation? A little indulgence never hurt anyone, and it doesn't come much sweeter than at Thorntons – the UK's oldest and best loved high street confectioner. Thorntons have been an established confectionery brand since 1911. Inspired by his time working for the Don Confectionery Company, founder Joseph William Taunton sought to create Sheffield's very own ultimate sweet shop – a dream he subsequently made reality with the opening of a cabin shop selling boiled sweets and Mackintosh Toffees. Being a cautious sort, he continued to work for Don Confectionery whilst establishing the business, and finally left in 1913 to open his second store in The Moor. It was here, in the basement of the store that he began developing Thorntons' signature chocolate and toffee recipes - a legacy which would lead to his company becoming the largest and most popular chain of specialist confectioners in the UK. World renowned for their moreish Special Toffee and Continental selections, Thorntons produce a decadent range of chocolate delights and treats, including Fabulous Fudge, ice-cream and chocolate figurines, as well as hampers, champagne sets and luxury selection boxes. Despite being a brand synonymous with quality, you'll find the vast majority of Thorntons products surprisingly reasonable in price – often with great incentive offers, such as discounts on multi-buys. Thorntons online store is a cache of confectionery treats, conveniently organised into smaller departments, allowing you to search by both product type, and occasion. You can also take advantage of their personalisation services. Simply choose your product; upload a photo, or email your message, and Thorntons will take care of the rest – including delivery to the address of your choice!

Thorntons Customer Reviews

My mum loved her personalised gift from Thorntons!

It was my mum's birthday recently and I couldn't make it back home to be there. I wanted to send something to arrive on the day that I knew she would really love. What better than chocolate!

Thornton's was my first stop because I'd seen it advertised that some of the gifts were able to be personalised. There were lots to choose from including chocolate figures of bears, monkeys and even cars! I settled on a box of Alphabet Truffles. Thorntons piped my own personal message to mum on 33 gorgeous individual chocolates. Because of the way the ordering process works I got to see how the box would look and chose the way my message was laid out. Perfect!

My mum was so pleased with her present. Usually a box of chocolates is far from personal, but Thornton's changed that! With quick delivery and a wide selection of products to choose from, I'll be happy to go back!

Thorntons made my Valentine say yes

My friends said it was naff, but I proposed with a box of Thorntons chocolates on Valentine's Day. My girlfriend (fiance!) said she would rather skip a big Valentine's dinner out, so we planned a cosy night at my flat instead. I'd been planning a big proposal and a fancy restaurant, so obviously my plans changed and suddenly I had the idea of placing the ring in a chocolates box. Thorntons has been my favourite forever, so I went on their site and even better, they had personalised boxes where you could put a photo on them. I took a picture of myself holding a sign that said "Marry me, Rebecca" and uploaded it on the site. I could even choose her favourite chocs and the box's colour. I have to admit I was quite nervous if it didn't turn out properly, but it arrived with plenty of time and the box was gorgeous. I was shaking when I gave her the box, but you should have seen her face! Best moment of my life. Thank you Thorntons - I can't say enough about the chocolates box and we'll be keeping it for life!

A chocolate haven for present buying!

Thorntons is an absolute classic gift destination from my childhood. When I was at school the dream was for your schoolmates to get you the personalised monkey with the banana in its hand and even now, years later, a box of Continental is still a standard present for mum or aunties. Having shopped in-store for years, last year I finally made the leap online and started ordering my gifts instead. I think the selection of codes and deals that Thorntons do, which are always pretty regular, make any purchase I make pretty great value for money as I usually get some sort of discount or (much preferred) free gift with the code. Buying for friends and family for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries has never been so easy as there's no gift wrapping and trips to the post office for me involved, just a few clicks and it's sorted. The quality of Thorntons chocolates can't be argued so I left a very happy customer!

Thorntons saved my Mother's Day

I had been waiting until the last minute to do my online shopping for my mum and thankfully Thorntons offered delivery up until tonight and it will still come for Saturday to mum's house. THANK YOU!!! I was able to order her a lovely gift set with happy mother's day written out in icing and it had at least 4 different types of chocolates, all in a nice gift packaging. I'll admit I'm a bit nervous about receiving that shipping confirmation tomorrow but I don't doubt that Thorntons will deliver (literally)!

Shopping Tips for Thorntons

Offers and deals for you

With continuous special offers and discounts, Thorntons gives you the chance to make huge savings on chocolates all-year-round. The chocolate maker usually saves their biggest offers for holidays associated with chocolate gift giving, such as Valentine’s day, mother’s day, Easter and Christmas. If one of these holidays is just around the corner and you’re planning on buying some chocolates, it’s worth hanging on a few more days until the special offers crop up if you really want to get the best price.


If you simply can’t wait until the next major holiday to get your hands on a box of chocolates, see what’s available in the ‘Offers’ section of the website. Here you’ll find a collection of all the non-holiday-related current promotions, including discounts across the entire product range, mix-and-match multi-buy deals and half price hampers. Here you’ll also find factory clearance chocolates which are incredible value for money but only available in very limited quantities. So if you see your favourite chocolates on sale for a price that seems too good to be true, add them into your basket quickly before someone else snaps them up.

Discounted delivery

Standard delivery on Thorntons orders is £3.95, but if you spend more than £30, your order will be delivered for just £1 and will arrive in 3-5 working days from the dispatch date. You can never have too much chocolate, so if your order falls just short of the £30 mark, it’s worth adding a few more sweet treats into your basket so your total order qualifies for discounted delivery. It could work out cheaper this way if you regularly place orders with Thorntons.
