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.

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.

View all our Super Shakes Here >

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!

Why not head to our site to view all our sweet gifts and give your Secret Santa recipient a Christmas to remember!

Are you planning a baby shower or looking for the perfect gift for a mum-to-be? Here at Sweets in the City, we have a huge range of sweets that are perfect for friends, family and mums-to-be.

Baby Shower

As some of you may know, we recently catered for our close friend and Sarah Lynn's fellow Apprentice contestant, Michaela Wain’s baby shower. While guests celebrated the upcoming arrival of Michaela and Harrison’s little Prince, they enjoyed a selection of Sweets in the City sweets and personalised lollipops - all of which can be easily recreated for your own baby shower.

Create a sweet table using our Pick & Mix range

One way to add a pop of colour and make sure there are sweets on offer that all of your guests can enjoy is to create a sweet table with a selection of yummy goodies from our Pick & Mix range.

We think that colour coordinating your sweets with your baby’s gender adds an adorable touch to any baby shower. Here are our suggestions of pink and blue sweets from our Pick & Mix range that are perfect for the job!  Display these sweeties in big glass jars with matching ribbons to ensure everyone knows that it’s a girl or boy!


  • Prosecco Sweets
  • Strawberry Swirl Lollipop
  • Strawberry Bonbons


  • Blue Raspberry Bonbons

Personalised Lollipops

If you’re struggling to think of a special gift to take to an upcoming baby shower, why not treat mummy-to-be to our Mum’s Emergency Stash? That way, she’ll always have a sweet treat on-hand to combat those sleepless nights.

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.
