Mother’s day gifts

As we approach Mother’s day I always wonder what I could buy differently for my mum for that special Mothers day gifts from the bouquet of flowers that I know she will love, but that she will also not be surprised to receive. However,  with Sweet Heaven’s vast choice of sweets from old fashioned hampers to retro cubes finally I can move away from the flowers and get her a gift delivered directly to her door and that will both take her by surprise and make her face light up with a big smile when she opens up her black gift box of sweets all wrapped in vibrant pink tissue paper where she will notice a delicate smell of sweets that will remind her of her school days when she used to buy these sweets from either the school tuck shop or from the corner sweet shop, she never has lost her sweet tooth so I know these will go down a storm.  However, don’t go by my ideas for your Mothers day gifts check out Sweet Heaven’s online sweet shop for many more ideas for Mothers day, from wicker hampers to boxes, to cubes, to glass bottles to gift bags all full of your mum’s favourite sweets, colours.  You can even choose your sweets by the era that is relevant to your mother ie sweets from the 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, 70′s, 80′s,90′s and the list goes on!

1990′s sweets

Sweets of the 1990′s are different to what they were a few decades ago, most of the sweets around in the 1990′s nowadays are retro sweets.  The ones that were around when we were young and used to have in our school days.  You would find things like sherbert dip dabs, mojo’s, fruit salads, candy necklaces, flying saucers, space dust now known as fiz whizz.  When I was at school there was a tuck shop and we used to queue up every day with a list of our favourite old fashioned sweets ready to try and order as many of our favourites as possible with the 20p we used to have in our pockets and that was on a good day.   If you would like to relive some of those memories too then take a look at Sweet Heavens online sweet shop and receive free delivery direct to your door anywhere in the UK.

Favourite sweets

What is your favourite sweets?  Would it be the sweets from your school days the ones you used to buy from the school tuckshop or the famous 10p mix up.  Would it be pear drops, rhubarb and custards, rosie apples, fruit salads, black jacks or would it be modern sweets,  would have thought it would be the old fashioned variety that we all know and remember and that brings back so many memories for us.  If you were to carry out a poll of Britains favourite sweets then aniseed balls normally comes out close to the top.

70's sweets

The 70′s for me conjure up so many pictures, it was a very flamboyant decade with platforms, flares and physcodelic colours and patterns and which are still synonmous with many a themed party as it was seen as an era fun – non-one took themselves very seriously.  I can also relate those 70′s sweets to that very same decade again these were alot of fun sweets with flying saucers, space dust, drum sticks, refreshers, fruit salads, black jacks – they were all there!  Quite often people contact us here at Sweet Heaven for a 70′s themed party, a popular idea seems to be to give their guests gift bags with 70′s retro sweets in them, people have used these 70′s themed parties for birthdays, wedding anniversaries and school reunions, what a great idea to go to a party with all your old school friends tucking into the sweets which you used to buy from the school tuck shop.  Why not view Sweet Heavens era ideas and receive free delivery for any order you place with us – you wont be disappointed, we are the worlds no. old fashioned traditional sweet shop in the UK.
