Gift Boxes

When you think of “gift boxes” you tend to think of say clothes, perfume, toiletries etc being inside them, so what better way of surprising a loved one than with a gift box full of sweets!  I remember when I sent a gift box of sweets to a company as a thank you for some work they did exceptionally well and they loved it so much they ordered Christmas hampers full of sweets for their own customers and thank you’s they were so pleased with not only the idea, but the excitement and buzz that it created within their own office with the staff laughing and chatting away about the sweets.  As we all know we are in a credit crunch at the moment and companies cannot afford pay rises, Xmas parties etc, but something as a Christmas hamper or a thank you hamper which doesnt break the budget, can be shared amongst its employees and makes its staff feel happy can only be good for anyones business.   Gift boxes come in all different sizes so again fit all different budgets, you can make these boxes bespoke for the person wo is to receive the gift.  Why not give it a try and order a gift box or hamper for a loved one and visit Sweet Heavens online shop for a free standard delivery service.

Wedding Sweet Favours

Did you know that wedding favours actually is an Italian/French tradition. Couples used to wish to pass on their good luck to their guests and so would pass on little boxes with “bonbonnieres” inside which used to be either 5 candies or 5 sugared almonds. This idea has long been in evidence at English weddings although the favours have got alot more detailed in terms of matching ideas with your theme, your personality, your guests or just a fashion trend of the era. Whether you decide to remain tradtional or try something different neither should break the budget if you do your research.

Wedding Sweet Bags

I had alot of children at my wedding and also my budget was running out by the time I got to the task of sorting out thank you’s for everyone. Then I saw the idea of wedding sweet bags and that solved my problem. It allowed me to stay well on budget, looked really great and I chose all the favourite sweets of my bridesmaids and they loved it!
