Creating Sweet Bags for a Birthday

Are you looking for a unique Birthday gift? Or something to make a Birthday party a little more interesting? If so, sweet bags are the perfect way to add your own twist to a special day and are sure to make people smile.

Sweets are a great gift no matter what age somebody is and here at Keep It Sweet we offer hundreds of different retro sweets to suit everyone’s taste buds. From Lemon Sherbets to Wham Bars - who can say no to a good tasty treat!? Whether you are looking for a gift for the person who has everything, or for an extra gift to go alongside another one, creating your own sweet bags is a great way to add your own personal touch and make a Birthday gift memorable.

First, choose which sweets you want to put in a bag. Why not pick some of their favourite sweets or some sweets from a certain decade to take them on a trip down memory lane to their childhoods and the sweet shop on the corner? For example, fizzy sweets such as Fizzy Blue Bottles and Fizzy Belts were popular in the 80s, so what better way to help somebody celebrate their big day than with a bag of tongue-tingling delights? Can they still handle the fizz?! Or, if you are stuck for ideas, a sweet bag filled with some of our most popular retro and traditional sweets is also sure to make a super birthday. One of our most popular sweets are Black Jacks. The classic aniseed chew that is iconic for its black colour and were first created in the 1920s by the sweet manufacturer Trebor. This old time favourite not only tastes delicious but is great fun to eat and would make an enjoyable addition to a sweet bag.

After you have selected the sweets to put in the bag, next is choosing the bag. Simply select the colour and quantity of our Kraft Paper Bags you would like and you’re away! To make an even more unique birthday gift, why not add in some Retro Toys? From Bouncing Putty to Flying Gliders, there are many small toys that are sure to bring a great sense of nostalgia and are perfect for both children and adults alike.
