Retro sweets hampers

Retro sweets hampers can be given at anytime of the year as they make a fanstastic present for any ocassion such as Easter, Christmas, Mother’s day, Valentines, Father’s day, Halloween, birthdays or just to say thank you.  Retro sweets hampers are filled with all of your favourite old fashioned sweets that you would remember from your childhood.  There would be things like sherbet fountains, black jacks, fruit salads, refreshers, frys peppermint creams, walnut whips, wispas, bon bons, jelly fried eggs and many more.  Retro sweets hampers come in all shapes and sizes from a small box through to a large wicker hamper that can be used time and time again and once the contents have been eaten, which believe me will take some time, and many hours of enjoyment.  You could then use the hamper again and again for such things as fun days out with the family and the hamper would make an ideal storage space for your picnic requirements which makes the gift even more worthwhile.  So why not treat yourself, a friend or a loved one on a special occassion or simply to say thank you with one of these fantastic gifts.  Take a look at Sweet Heaven’s large selection today and receive free delivery within the UK.

Easter ideas

Are you stuck for ideas of what to do for your Easter festivities this year.  Is it just your usual chocolate Easter egg from the supermarket that are all the same and have got no character or anything different about them and your children will probably receive about 8 or 10 of them!  If you are looking for Easter ideas then why not start with some chocolate foil Easter eggs and organise an Easter egg hunt for your children by simply hiding these  foil eggs around the house and out in the garden and simply send your children off to find them and that will keep them both busy and amused for hours.  Also for the big kids Sweet Heaven online do a nice range of different gift ideas ranging from gift bags and cubes through to boxes and large wicker hampers that can be sent with a personalised message on and can be sent through the post to the lucky recipient.  There are only about 2 weeks until Easter so please do not hesitate to put in your order as we have limited stocks for these items as the chocolate foil Easter eggs are selling out quickly as people are buying them up looking forward to the celebrations.  So order today and receive free delivery within the UK.

Old School Eats

What are your favourite old school eats that you could remember from your childhood?  Top of most peoples lists are old skool sweets as there are many to choose from and they bring back so many memories as they were such a big part of our lives back then.  I have many memories of the local sweet shop where I used to visit on a daily basis on my way to school to take in all of the sights and smells that were on offer in my favourite traditional sweet shop.  Old school eats go down in history with many an adult nowadays who liked to bring out their inner child and reminisce about the good old days and have something in common to talk and laugh about when life is looking a little bit too serious.  I remember sweets like black jacks, refreshers, fruit salads, double lollies dip, candy necklaces, foam bananas, foam shrimps and you could get all of this in a white paper bag that was called a 10p mix up in those days.  So my favourite old school eats would have to be old skool sweets.  To get some of your favourite old skool sweets then visit Sweet Heaven’s online sweet shop today and take in the memories and also take advantage of the free delivery service within the UK.

old time sweets

Today it was our daughters fifth birthday party and she was so excited!  Before we left the house for the party venue, we put together the party bags for all the girls and boys and in their we put a selection of old time sweets, sometimes called old fashioned sweets or traditional sweets.  Our daughter chose all the sweets herself and included candy necklaces, lollipops, strawberry and lemon bonbons (her favourites) space dust and and white chocolate mice.  It was an early morning party.  She had a great party and was telling all her little guests and about the sweetie party bags with old time sweets in there that she had chosen.  Once they had finished playing they had their party lunch, a princess ballerina cake and then she gave out the party bags to all her desks – you should have heard all the hmms and haas.  Then just as the parents were looking on longingly, I produced a bowl of sweets that I had picked out that I knew most of them would smile and laugh over.  There was uproar over who was going to have the 2 sherbet fountains!  The bowl included refreshers, drumstick lollipops, black jacks and fruit salads, flying saucers and yes space dust again!  I wish I had some more disk space left on my camera because their faces were a treat!  If you want to put a smile on your friends faces checkout Sweet Heaven’s online sweet shop where there are hundreds of your old favourites – you won’t know where to begin, all with free delivery direct to your door anywhere in the UK.
