Candy Bouquets: These fun gifts can be customized with your recipient’s favorite candy or with a mixture. All you need is skewers, ribbon, a vase or flower pot, floral foam, and a glue gun.

Gift Baskets: Mix sweet treats with salty snacks for a gift basket they’ll love. You can go with a theme, such as movie or sports snacks in a decorative basket.

Care Packages: This is a simple way to say thank you. Wrap up your recipient’s favorite foods in a lovely box and top off with a handwritten note. Bonus points if your child adds a note of their own.
