Life is Sweet: Valentine’s Day Primer
Ok men listen up. It’s the 4th quarter and you want to be the Tom Brady of Valentine’s Day this year. Maybe in years past, you’ve fumbled this particular holiday with gifts of household appliances, lacy lingerie that is anything but comfortable, half wilted supermarket bouquets or (so help me), a scale. This never needs to happen again! We’ve created this handy-dandy primer for you to use and, if you happen to be female and reading this, feel free to send the link to your other half or print it and leave it on the mirror. This is no time for the Hail Mary pass or subtlety. This is a straight forward game plan for a grudge free holiday.
On one of my earliest dates with my husband we went to the movies and shared a box of chocolate covered malt balls. That is, we shared it until he reached for the wrong end of the box and spilled the entire thing. We were sitting in the last row of the theater and could hear the darn things rolling down the theater, row and row after row. Neither of us remember the movie, but we remember that and still laugh.
Think back. What foods evoke a particular memory? The fact that you remember will make the woman in your life happy. Don’t worry that it’s an old candy and hard to find. At Life is Sweet we have an amazing collection of nostalgic candies and will be happy to help you find what you’re looking for!
Show What You Know
Maybe you haven’t been dating long enough to create a candy memory together. No worries, because we’ve got you covered. Even after a few dates you know a few things. Maybe you know she’s a total Harry Potter geek or her favorite summer ever was the one where she visited England or her favorite color is purple. Here at Life is Sweet we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect present.
We have an entire selection of Harry Potter candies. We can help you put together a basket of magical goodies. We have international candies, not just from England, but other countries as well. Finally, we have candies displayed from every color of the rainbow and will assist you in creating a monochromatic candy selection that will blow those purple socks off!
Put in the Effort
It’s not about the cost of the gift or the elegance. What makes a woman happiest is knowing she is thought of, remembered and worth some effort. So you don’t know where here favorite vacations were, favorite color and don’t remember the same charming incident we do from our dating days. Here’s the shocker: It’s still ok! Just make an effort!
At Life is Sweet we can help you put together a gift to bring a smile to both your faces. Or you can just come in and buy one of our giant hearts filled with hand dipped chocolates. Pair that with a romantic quote, handwritten on a card by you. (Dudes, that’s what Google is for- just look it up! And give credit to the writer- you’ll win romance and smart points!)
Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate
The one question you should be able to answer about your sweetheart is white, milk or dark- as in chocolate. Women definitely have a preference. Know what it is and come in and buy caramels, truffles and cherries covered in your darling’s favorite flavored chocolate.
There are those (extremely rare) individuals who do not care for chocolate and we have an entire selection of non-chocolate based candies from which you can choose. Why not buy a dozen cupcakes with hearts on them instead?
No worries if your sweetie is a vegan or doesn’t do sugar. Life is Sweet has candy selections that have got you covered!
No excuse men. It’s time for you to bring home the Heisman and be named the MVVP (Most Valuable Valentine’s Player) of the century. Life is Sweet is here to help you on your way to a ticker tape parade and score big points! Make this Valentine’s Day the sweetest it has ever been.
