Over the past few years, this has been my go to gift to give to friends when they need a little pick me up, or if they start looking too thin. What I like about giving it is that its a) colourful b) customized c) edible and d) not too cheap/not too expensive. You can easily tack it on to a bigger gift, like a birthday or graduation. Toss it in a cute mug, tie some cookie cutters onto the ribbon, pair it up with a good book-the possibilities are endless.
To make this, all you have to do is go to your local bulk food store, pick up a cellophane bag and choose candies that your friend likes best. I like to assemble the candy in the bag by layers, but you could also make more of a “candy salad” and mix it all up. In total, this cost me less than $9.
I hope your friends enjoy!
