Sweet Gift Idea

Quotes for candy 3

What do you do with all that left over Halloween candy?  Here is a sweet gift idea.

My poor hubby severed his Achilles tendon playing soccer.  He’s in a cast and crutches for six weeks and will be in a boot for another six weeks after that.  Needless to say, it makes his life a lot tougher.

To make his life a little less miserable, without a thought, I knew exactly what would make him much happier… SWEETS.  So I decided to surprise him and leave one treat with a note with candy sayings in his work bag every day for several weeks.

I made the note from his daughter.  Here are the quotes for candy I put on this sweet gift idea.

  • Mini Chips Ahoy Cookies – For our own special ‘COOKIE’ monster!
  • Butterfinger – We love you so much “BUTTERFINGERS” won’t count that high!
  • Kit Kat – Daddy, we don’t ever want a break from you!
  • Snickers – Daddy, we love how you make us laugh and “SNICKER”!
  • Junior Mints – Daddy, you are worth a “MINT”!
  • Peanut M&M’s – We’re “NUTS” about you!
  • M&M’s – Daddy, you make us melt!
  • Rice Krispies Treat – I think it’s a “TREAT” that you’re my Daddy!
  • Peanut Butter M&M’s – Daddy, we think you’re Magnificent and Marvelous!
  • Hazelnut Chocolate Bar – We love you so much it’s “NUTS”!
  • Milky Way – Daddy, we think you are out of this world!
  • Zero Bar – You’re not a “ZERO”. You’re our hero!!
  • Heath – Sugar and Spice you’re everything nice!
  • York Peppermint Pattie – Daddy, we get the sensation from you!
  • Twix – Just be “TWIX” you and me, we love you!
  • Rolos – Daddy, you’re my “ROLO” model!
  • Slim Jim Twin Pack – Daddy, we hope no one gives you any “BEEF” today! Love YOU!
  • Candy Dipped Fortune Cookies - We are so FORTUNE ate to have you in our lives!

Another option is to make this DIY gift idea and present them all at once in a gift basket for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day or any special occasion!
