Life is Sweet…Especially on Valentine’s Day!
I won’t pretend to know how much time men spend thinking about Valentine’s Day. Maybe they think about it a lot, but they have a tendency to turn thought into action at the last moment. So I’ll focus on them next week when Valentine’s Day seems a little more imminent.
Women however….well, we are supreme multi-taskers, often having lists as long as our arms, to accomplish in a short amount of time. We know we need to get things done! Lucky for you, Life is Sweet is run by a woman who is pretty busy herself, and so we’ve got everything you need for Valentine’s Day prepped and ready to buy or put together.
For Your Best Friend
Is there anything better than hanging out and just catching up with your best friend? YES! How about buying her a cup of coffee and perusing Life is Sweet? You can complete all of your Valentine’s Day shopping, catch up on the latest in your lives, have a seat, drink some coffee, tea or cocoa and have one of our delicious, homemade cupcakes right in the store. There are few atmospheres more fun than a candy store for chatting with your BFF!
Ok, maybe you’re not seeing your in-laws on Valentine’s Day, but maybe you’ve got a visit planned coming up. You want to achieve favorite daughter-in-law status? We’ve got you covered. Pick up a dozen of our cupcakes. You can get them all one flavor-like our salted caramel chocolate cupcakes, or different flavors, like the Girl Scout cookie inspired cupcakes we have this week. No matter what you choose, you will come out looking both thoughtful and clever for bringing a dessert everyone can enjoy.
You’re going to feel like a kid in a candy store yourself while prepping something special for your children. Life is Sweet has small Valentine themed tin pails you can fill with a selection of mix and match candies. With over 160 to choose from you can personalize each pail to suit each child’s tastes! For your little ones, be sure to pick up one of our Ty beanies to make the day that much more memorable.
Your College Student
They may be grown up and away at school, but they are always going to be your baby. Valentine’s Day is the opportunity to let them know you are always thinking about them. Order some of our delicious, creamy fudge in a variety of flavors (and sizes-in case the roommate is going to demand their share of the goods!) and we will ship it for you! You are bound to get one of those rare, excited phone calls home to say thank you. (And probably ask for money, but that’s to be expected!)
Let’s face it- those New Year Resolutions banning candy from the office and workplace are not in effect for Valentine’s Day. Yes, you could cut up some veggies and bring some yogurt dip, but no one will be excited to be reminded of diet obligations on the sweetest day of the year! Instead, bring in a box of our hand crafted chocolates. One delicious, dark chocolate covered caramel will bring more happiness than a whole bag of carrot sticks, and the next time you need someone to trade a shift or cover for you, you’ll have some happy volunteers.
Show them you know them better than anyone else in the world! Pick from our English Cadbury collection for your anglophile boyfriend (we even have hobnobs!). Buy one of our small heart shaped boxes and fill it with milk chocolate turtles if that is their one weakness. You have a Harry Potter loving BAE? We have an entire selection of magically inspired candies. How about a selection of candies popular when they were children? We’ve got nostalgia themed boxes of candies from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and more! Or knock your chocoholics socks off with a giant red heart filled with our homemade chocolates. It’s big enough for sharing so you can safely taste test with your loved one, without the accusation of “hogging all the candy”.
There’s a cynical belief that Valentine’s Day is just a “Hallmark” holiday. But is there ever a wrong day to show people you love them and to eat chocolate? Nope! We make our living from making life, sweet.
