Whether your colleague is retiring or a close friend has just welcomed a new bundle of joy into the world, it can be difficult to find a suitable gift, especially if you’re unsure what is suitable for the special occasion.
But not to worry, sweet boxes or a hamper filled with delicious treats are fantastic options suitable for a variety of occasions.
The confectionery experts at Hamper & Gift have produced a helpful guide, highlighting every moment sweet boxes are ideal for.
Six occasions sweet boxes are ideal for:
Hampers and treat box gifts fly off the shelves during the festive season due to their versatility as all-rounder gifts. Due to the variety of treats offered in each, there’s usually always something for everyone in each box.
Plus, as Christmas is traditionally a time for indulging in rich treats, they fit the bill as a festive gift, perfect for the whole family.
Sweet boxes filled with chocolate and moreish biscuits to enjoy whilst watching the Christmas television with a cup of tea are a real winner, no matter who they are for!
Graduations are a celebration of achievements and years of hard work and dedication – so your giftee should receive nothing short of special. A gift hamper is an incredible way to say well done to the graduate in your life – as there are many types on the market, you won’t be short of options.
For example, fizzy sweet hampers are perfect for younger graduates who like a tangy treat – these could also be considered A-level results gifts. For more mature giftees, you can opt for a simple chocolate sweet box that is packed with goodies such as chocolate raisins and gourmet popcorn.
Whether it’s their 21st birthday or the big 5 0, a gift basket is a safe yet enjoyable present guaranteed to put a smile on your giftee’s face – unlike an item of clothing or ornament they may not like.
Pick & mix hampers filled with traditional cola bottles and jellybeans are a superb option for younger and older recipients. Plus, if you want to get more particular, there are gift baskets bursting with liquorice snacks for the liquorice lover celebrating their birthday.
A treasured anniversary is a monumental event in your relationship that deserves an exceptional gift to share and commemorate the date – a luxurious deluxe hamper is an exquisite option.
Sumptuous delights, such as rich English Breakfast tea, chocolate chunk biscuits and creamy butter fudge, can be found within these stunning hampers and are sure to make your anniversary is one to remember.
Choosing a present for a retiring colleague can be tricky, especially if you aren’t sure what gifts they appreciate – sweet boxes are a fitting way to say thank you and pass on joyous retirement wishes!
We do recommend finding out whether your colleague has any special dietary requirements – if they do, there are plenty of tasty vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free options available to choose from.
