You could buy uncle a pair of walking socks, and auntie a new cross-stitch, while your partner might well like a new iron and sis-in-law could be ever so taken by a Chas and Dave CD but we reckon that all these birthday gifts will be politely received and then popped into the local jumble sale. No offence meant, especially to Chas and Dave, but when it comes to birthday gifts most people are expecting a little fun and originality. And even if they don’t expect it, they probably deserve it.
Birthday gifts with the full taste of sweet success
Birthday gifts should say “special”, “thoughtful”, “different” and “clever”. The best birthday presents are also “individual” and “personalised”.
And what better – in our humble opinion – than one of our specially chosen and beautifully wrapped sweetilicious birthday gifts?
But, of course, we’re an on-line sweet shop, so we are going to tell you that sweets make the best birthday gifts, whatever the age of the birthday boy, girl or grown-up. But, in the end , it’s up to the recipient to tell you if you have come up with one of their best ever birthday presents. Ever.
How to choose your perfect birthday gifts
For a special birthday gift: Is the birthday girl a jelly beans fan? Does she adore pink chocolate? Is the birthday boy a bit of a liquorice lover or an aniseed addict? Buying a special present has never been easier because if you know exactly what kind of sweet your recipient most likes.
Something different: Go for a retro box or hamper and see their puzzled face spread into a broad grin as they lift the lid on a bumper package of all their favourite childhood sweeties.
Clever birthday gifts: Think age-related or poignant birthday gifts and choose a sweets gift accordingly. So for someone born in the 1950s it’ll be a 1950s Decades Box, or for a Sixties Chick it’s 1960s Decades Box. Meanwhile for a beer drinker, you could go for a jar filled with lager tops or pint pots, or for fish and chips munchers choose chocolate fish and chips!
Personalised birthday gifts
Pick and mix the favourite sweets of your loved one and then write an individual message on the birthday greetings label. Personalised birthday gifts show how much you care and how thoughtful you really are. Sweetie bags and jars can be created to your specification, perhaps a jar of red, white and blue sweets for the traditionalist?
And how about personalised wrapped lettered rock pieces, sweets in printed wrappers, personalised jars or gift boxes. These are the kind of birthday gifts that will give you the honour of being birthday gift buyer of the year.
