During the first week of October, Age UK wants us to connect with our Grannies and Grandads on Grandparent’s Day to remind them how important they are. Here at Sweets in the City, we think that refilling their sweet jar, that you’ve no doubt helped to empty over the years, is the perfect way to do so.

Refill the Beloved Sweetie Jar

Your Grandparents were notorious for sneaking you a handful of Jelly Beans or Dolly Mixture when you were little, so why not repay the favour by gifting them their own ‘To Sweeten Your Day’ Giant Jar of Joy, or personalise one just for them? Hand deliver this gift and spend the day reminding your grandparents how much you love and appreciate them.

Have Your Gift Posted Directly Through the Letterbox

Our Letterbox Treats are an obvious choice of gift for Grandparent’s Day if you don’t have the time to visit them personally. You can combine a sentimental message with a sweet surprise, all while eliminating the need for Granny or Grandad to answer the door to a stranger. A winner all-round.

So, if you want to make your grandparents feel extra special this October then head over to Sweets in the City to find the perfect gift to sweeten their day. Don’t forget to check out Age UK’s website to see how you can support our grandparents all year round.

Becoming a big brother or sister can make little ones feel jealous. They’re no longer the centre of Mum and Dad’s attention and this can be hard for them to understand. Sweets in the City recommends treating them to a yummy gift so they feel included as visitors arrive with lots of presents for the new baby.


A personalised gift from Sweets in the City is guaranteed to make any new brother or sister feel important. Above are examples of our Giant Lollipops and Jars of Joy that have been customised for the occasion. Guaranteed to make the little ones feel special.

You’re a Star

When Mum and Dad are busy preparing for the arrival of a new little one, big brothers and sisters may find themselves having to be very patient and well behaved. Our Little Jar of Star Sweets is the perfect way to let them know they’re a star. The perfect size for children, these fun gummy stars come in a mixture of blackcurrant, elderberry and grape flavours.

Sweets in the City offers customisation on almost all products, making it easier than ever for new brothers and sisters to feel included in the arrival of their sweet new sibling.

The Dad Stash

If you know a Dad who likes to stash his sugary treats where thieving hands can’t find them, why not treat him to his own Tuck Shop Sweet Box?

Retro Dad

Dads notoriously love a blast from the past. Sweets in the City can help you transport him back to the 80’s with our Retro Classic range. Includes retro favourites such as; Refresher Chews, Cola Bottles & Flying Saucers. Customise our labels to send Dad a special message.

Trendy Dad

Gin sales are rocketing this year. If you know a Dad who likes to follow the trends and is partial to a gin & tonic, treat him to our Gin & Tonic Sweets.

Sweets in the City think Dads deserve some sweet recognition for everything they do for us. Whether you’re buying for a new dad or your own dad, we are guaranteed to have a gift to make him smile.
