The Sweets in the City team have handpicked products from across our Christmas collection that will look perfect nestled under the Christmas tree or tucked into a stocking by the fireplace. Whether you’re looking for a festive Christmas eve gift or a jar full of American candy favourites, we’ve got you covered! Here’s a little inspiration for how you can give your loved ones the sweetest Christmas this year.

A Christmas Eve Treat

Some of us follow the tradition of having one gift to open on the night before Christmas. Some people even create a box of smaller gifts that can be used on Christmas eve to get children (and adults) into the Christmas spirit. These boxes contain things like, a Christmas pair of pyjamas, a Christmas movie to watch before bed, and some Christmas treats to enjoy while watching it!

We think that our Merry and Bright Super Shake would be an amazing addition to your Christmas eve box, or as a stand-alone Christmas Eve treat!

Give an American sweet lover a festive treat

We all know someone who adores American sweets, so here at Sweets in the City, we’ve created a Christmas Jar of Joy filled with iconic American candy! This jar not only contains American favourites such as:

  • Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • Nerds
  • Tootsie Rolls

but it can also be personalised for FREE! Whether Santa pops this Jar of Joy under the Christmas tree as a festive surprise, or you add it to an American themed stocking, it’s sure to be a hit.

Pink sweets can add a charming touch to any event, but we think there are a few occasions when pink sweets can play a central role in your celebrations. Perhaps you're planning a special gender reveal party or an adorable baby shower? From pink themed sweet buffets to adorable wedding favours, your pink sweet options are endless. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Pink Sweet Buffet/ Table

Do you have an exciting charity event, children’s party or special celebration coming up? Why not create an entirely pink themed sweet buffet or table to compliment the occasion?

By displaying our pink sweets in clear jars or bowls you can create the illusion that you’ve spent lots of time planning and designing the event while needing to put in very little effort. You could accessorise with pink sweet scoops, pink ribbons and a pink tablecloth as you see fit to complete the look!

Here are some of our top picks from our Pick & Mix range that would perfectly compliment a pink-themed sweet buffet/table. Buy in bulk to ensure there’s enough for everyone to enjoy! Click on the sweets below to see them on our pick & mix page:

Wedding Sweets

Whether you’re having an entirely pink themed wedding or embellishing your day with delicate touches of pink, our pink sweets will go down a treat.

We think a deliciously romantic option would be to wrap our Rose and Lemon Flavoured Turkish delight in tissue paper and secure it with a ribbon that complements the colour scheme of your wedding and give these to guests as wedding favours. Our Rose and Lemon Turkish delight has a soft melt in the mouth texture, a delicate flavour and a dusty icing sugar coating – perfect!

You could also fill mason jars with a selection of our pink sweets and create beautiful (and tasty) centrepieces. Why not scatter our Jelly Love Hearts across the tables as delicious edible confetti?

We have lots of different pink sweets that you can browse in our Pick & Mix selection. Head to our site to browse and order yours today. Remember, all most all of our Pick & Mix sweets are available to buy in bulk!

Now that November is upon us, the organised people amongst us will be starting to plan for this year’s round of Secret Santa!

Did you know that the tradition of Secret Santa began in Scandinavia and was originally known as Juklapp or “knocking Christmas”? Secret Santa would knock on someone’s door, wait for it to open, throw a present inside and then quickly run away. This festive tradition might be a little questionable nowadays and has (luckily) evolved into the less invasive Secret Santa tradition we know today.

Drawing a name out of the hat is the easy part of Secret Santa., choosing a secret Santa gift is the challenging part… especially if you’re buying one for someone you don’t know very well. Whether you’re buying a secret Santa gift for a work colleague, a family member or a school friend, we think our Super Shakes are a foolproof choice, here’s why.

Secret Santa Super Shake

Here you can see our Merry & Bright Super Shake that has been personalised to make a Secret Santa gift. This Super Shake is perfect as a Secret Santa gift because it has a yummy festive fill and a label that can be personalised for FREE! That means you can create a special sweet gift that is sure to make anyone smile, for under £10!

Do you know your recipient loves a certain type of sweets, for example; fizzy sweets or retro sweets? Why not choose a different Super Shake that’s more to their taste from our range? You can turn any of our Super Shakes into the perfect Secret Santa gift by customising it & having it delivered for free. Here, you can see a Fizzy Heaven Super Shake that we’ve personalised to show you how your special gift would look.

Our Super Shakes are our top pick as Secret Santa gifts because they fit perfectly within most people’s Secret Santa budgets, and they look delightful when they’re personalised. However, all of our sweet gifts can be personalised and delivered completely free of charge to suit your Secret Santa needs!

Here at Sweets in the City, we think that waiting for your presents to come down the chimney is so last year! This year we have created two personalisable Christmas Letterbox Treats that are sure to provide a little more festive sparkle than a standard Christmas card and just as much excitement as a stack of presents under the tree.

Merry Christmas Letterbox

Our Merry Christmas Letterbox Treats come in a beautiful box adorned with adorable gingerbread men, Christmas candies and stars. Perfect for younger sweet lovers! We have written Merry Christmas on the front of our boxes, but you can customise both the front label and message inside to make this gift extra special.
