There’s no one in the world quite like your mum – she’s been there for you through thick and thin, and she probably knows you better than you even know yourself. So, when your mum is so unique, why would you send her a generic gift? Our range of letterbox treats and customisable sweet collections allow you to create bespoke treats for a happy mum. A personalised message and selection of delicious sweeties are the perfect combo to make her smile – whatever the occasion! Here are four custom sweet gift ideas to send to your mum:
1) A gift for SuperMum
She can do the laundry without turning socks pink, find missing keys in the blink of an eye and knows just when you need a hug. If this sounds familiar, show your mum you care with this personalised Jar of Joy packed full of sweets. Sometimes a little appreciation goes a long way.
2) Give Mum a birthday to remember
If your mum’s birthday is coming up, gift this beautiful bespoke letterbox treat to wish her a happy day. This ‘happy birthday mum’ custom message lets her know you care. Plus, if you’re running a little short on time, this individual gift will be delivered straight to her door – so ditch the wrapping paper!
3) World’s Best Mum
Whether you’re trying to get back into your mum’s good books – or just feeling affectionate – this lovely personalised giant Jar of Joy is sure to make your mum’s day! Stuffed full of delicious sweets, your mum may even be willing to share…
For those do-gooders who send gifts from the heart, why not surprise your mum with this unique ‘guess who’ letterbox gift? You might not get the credit (unless she guesses!) but this personalised twist on a classic “just to say” message is sure to be a happy mystery.
For all these bespoke gifts and more, browse the Sweets in the City website and personalise your own sweet selection. Sometimes no one says it better than you, so customise a message for your mum and select a unique design to suit her!

Stock up on nostalgic sweets with Sweets in the City!
Nostalgia - that warm, fuzzy feeling you get when you think about the past - can come from all sorts of different places. It could be a catch-up with an old friend, a film you once saw in the cinema, a song you haven't heard for years...
...or it could be a jar of the sweets you used to eat when you were little! Sweets in the City have a range of nostalgic sweets that are sure to send you back down memory lane.
Our Retro Classic jar is filled to the brim with all the nostalgic sweets you remember from the school playground, including...
Can you think of a sweet more nostalgic than flying saucers? The mere sight of these colourful sherbet-filled treats is enough to take you straight back to the school tuck shop! Flying saucers are consistently ranked among the UK's favourite sweets, and it's not hard to see why.
Did you know? Flying saucer sweets are Belgian. They were created by an Antwerp-based company that originally sold communion wafers.
First sold in 1954, Love Hearts have been an enduringly popular treat for generation after generation of British sweet lovers. The little message on each sweet makes them almost as fun to share as they are to eat - they might even take you back to your very first crush!
Did you know? Love Hearts have always moved with the times. When text messaging first took the world by storm, messages like 'luv u' and 'how r u' started appearing in packets of Love Hearts. Nowadays, your pack of Love Hearts may well contain a few sweets with emojis on them!
Fruit Salads & Black Jacks
Sweets don't come much more nostalgic than this! Black Jacks have been around for nearly 100 years now, and while both Black Jacks and Fruit Salads are yummy on their own, we happen to think they're best when they're mixed together. It's a nostalgic match made in sweet heaven!
Did you know? An original Black Jack wrapper from the 1920s is on display at the V&A Museum of Childhood in London.
All of these nostalgic sweets - and more besides! - can be found in our best-selling Retro Classic selection, available in the following sizes:
You can also buy your favourite sweets (nostalgic and otherwise!) in bulk on our Pick & Mix page. Be sure to have a browse - we've got loads of other nostalgic sweeties to choose from!
