There’s nothing better than the look on people’s faces when they receive a gift they love, and what’s not to love about sweets. Here’s why and how you should make pick’n’mix bags of sweets and/or chocolate for your friends and family this year.
Why sweet bags are a great idea
There aren’t many people around that don’t like sweets. You can also cater them to each specific person, so if you know what someone’s favourite sweets are you can make a mixture with all of those in. You can also make vegan bags for your vegan friends, they will completely love it.
How to make them
You’ll need some bags small enough to hold sweets but big enough to hold quite a few of them. The best option is to find yourself some of the ones like the ones you can in sweet shops. Many shops sell them and you can find them easily online. You could also visit our favourite paper bag company and choose from a range of coloured and patterned ones (they even sell animal print bags!)
Once you have your bags, you can begin filling them any way you like. A great way to keep costs down is to buy your sweets in bulk. You can often get large boxes of sweets for a really good price. Then you can buy a few different types of sweets and mix them together to make a delicious mix of your favourite sweets. You could also make a few extra and keep them for yourself.
If you’re struggling for gift ideas this Christmas, get creative. Many people would appreciate a gift that clearly took you time to create, so be brave and get making!
