Finding the right present for everyone on your list can be tough, however, British sweets are a wonderfully versatile gift option and today we’re going to show you how to incorporate them into your gift giving. We’ve got something for everyone (even that co-worker who’s notoriously hard to buy for) and each of our takes on fantastic gifts with British sweets can be tailored to suit the recipient.
One of the best ways to use British sweets to show your love this festive season is to add a couple in as stocking fillers. Pretty much everyone loves candy and if you’re shopping for little ones, they should be distracted enough by their sweet treats that you’ll be able to have your morning cuppa in peace this Christmas (and maybe even score a moment to relax and enjoy some British sweets of your own).
Another great way to show your love with British sweets this festive season is to add some to your Secret Santa gift if the colleague you selected has a bit of a preference for delicious delights. They’re the perfect way to bulk up your present a bit (while still staying under your workplace’s set budget) and because there are so many British sweets to choose from, you’re sure to be able to meet any dietary requirements. You could even have them as the entire gift if you get creative with the presentation (more info in our last point) or simply want to ensure that your co-workers’ snack drawer doesn’t need refilling for a while.
If you have a loved one who needs a bit of a pick me up this festive season, why not create them a cute little self-care package? Put some bath salts, body scrub, a nice moisturiser and some British sweets in a basket with a few other things that you know they like, (this could be a book or magazine, their favourite perfume, their preferred face mask, etc.) add a kind note to make them feel all warm and fuzzy and viola you’ve got the perfect self-care package.
Got a friend or family member who’s all about gourmet living? Why not give them a collection of tasty treats rounded out with some British sweets? This could include their favourite wine (or preferred drink), ingredients and instructions for a recipe you think they’ll like and perhaps a cooking tool or two that you think they’ll enjoy. Present it all nicely in a fancy new pan (or cute picnic basket if they’re the type who already have everything they need in the kitchen) add your british sweets and you’ve got the ideal gift.
Finally, if the loved one that you’re hunting a gift for prefers something a little more on the homemade or crafty side, why not give them a bouquet of British sweets? Flowers are lovely but they can be super expensive and die within a couple of days if not cared for correctly, british sweets, however, can last for ages depending on the selection you decide to craft your bouquet from. Plus, if you really want to give your loved one flowers, why not consider combining the two into one mega bouquet that’s sure to delight?
With everything that’s been going on the past few years, we could all do with a little extra delicious delight in our lives. British sweets are a great addition to any gift this festive season, and, as shown, could even be the entire gift depending on how you present things – so go forth and get shopping!
