Anniversaries are celebrations of love, whether they are counting months of dating or decades of marriage. While milestones like the 50th anniversary often correspond to signature gifts with rich histories, there are tons of other unique gifts you can give to reflect the special bond between you and your favorite person – such as custom candy anniversary gifts!
It’s no surprise that candy and sweets are a time-honored tradition on romantic anniversaries. They’re even the traditional gift of the sixth wedding anniversary. Because they represent joy, nostalgia, and indulgence, sweet treats are the perfect way to shower your loved one with happiness and show them just how much you care.
But choosing the right candy gift can be complicated, especially if your sweetheart has a sweet tooth for a variety of candies. That’s why many people are taking the route of making or ordering something custom for their candy-loving loved ones. A custom candy gift can be personalized for your significant other, decorated with things meaningful to your relationship and distinct from every other candy gift out there.
If the way to your love’s heart is through a sweet tooth, here are a few creative ways you can give your sweetheart custom candy gifts for your anniversary:
Why not combine the traditional candy and flowers into one great custom candy gift for your anniversary? Custom candy bouquets feature candy bar “flowers” poking out of a “vase” made from candy boxes. Pick the candy bars your other half likes the most and garnish the vase with whatever says love to you two.
You don’t have to limit yourself to candy bars, either. This is a flexible anniversary gift that can really be adapted to your loved one’s tastes. You can get creative with lollipops, rock candy on sticks, or anything that can be “arranged” like flowers. This adorable gift has the potential to be as classic, classy, or colorful as you want!
Here’s an idea for the environmentally conscious couple – recycle those old Mason and mayo jars by filling them with favorite sweets like Hershey’s Kisses, Jolly Ranchers, or whatever delicious candies your sweetheart likes best. Decorate the jar for the occasion, maybe adding your names and the date of your anniversary.
This custom candy gift makes a sweet keepsake that lasts well after the candy is gone – or even gives incentive to fill it back up for other occasions!
Custom Candy Wreath
This unique gift idea is another great opportunity to unleash your creative side while showering your better half with love. Spice up the presentation with a candy wreath made from your significant other’s favorite sweets!
Embellish it with a cute garland, flag, or cloth celebrating your favorite sports team, the school where you two met, or a shared favorite vacation spot. Add pictures from your relationship to the wreath itself, so that you have a fun keepsake even after you’ve eaten the candy.
Monthly Candy Subscription
For the gourmet sweet tooth, a monthly candy subscription can be the perfect gift, celebrating your love month after month with new flavors to taste and enjoy! It’s convenient because it shows up at the doorstep, and every month is a surprise as each custom candy box contains different gourmet candies you select.
This is a great anniversary gift if you want to treat your better half to not one, not two, but however many you want of tasty, top-quality care packages full of indulgent sweets.
Personalized Notes & Cards
Most of the time, the candy isn’t the main point of your gift; it’s the affection behind the sweets that really matters! There are lots of ways to combine candy with written notes to add a little something extra to a very sweet message.
Use pieces of candy to decorate a note, or wrap treats up in a small gift bag tied with a tag that holds your sweet sentiments. You could even attach little written messages to several candies that provide clues to an anniversary surprise. You can also keep it simple; a yummy piece of candy tied with a little note that says “I love you” can be the greatest gift of all.
There are lots of ways to ensure your sweetheart’s sweet tooth is satisfied as you celebrate your love. Whether traditional or creative, a custom candy gift for your anniversary can be unique and create memories for years to come.
