Good Old-Fashioned Candy Grams

Editor's Note: {My Giveaway (Victoria Secret bath/body set) is ending on Saturday!} Don't forget to enter! --------->

So, you know those silly “candy grams” that are used for every occasion under the sun? Well, I think they should find their place in our relationships more often... They are simple, cheap, and fun!

Here are images I borrowed from other blogs and sites to provide some inspiration:



I love these!! So much cuter than the traditional candy-grams on a poster board. Credit/Instructions: PattieWack

How about this Candy-Gram bouquet?

If piecing together a poem isn't your thing, simply using phrases for each candy works, too!
(I don't know where I took this picture from..some super cute blog I am sure. sorry!)

Here are a few examples of simple phrases:

  • “You are out of this world” tag attached to a Milky Way or Mars candy bar
  • “You deserve an extra payday!” tag attached to a Payday candy bar
  • “You are ‘extra’ special” tag with a pack of Extra Gum
  • “I appreciate the ‘mounds’ of work you do!” tag attached to a Mounds candy bar
  • “You are a ‘treasure’ to me! tag with Treasures candy
  • “You are such a joy to me!” tag attached to an Almond Joy candy bar
  • “I am ‘nuts’ about you!” tag attached to some nuts
  • “You were ‘mint’ to be my man!” tag attached to some mint chocolate or candies
  • "I wouldn't trade you for 100 grand!" tag attached to a 100 Grand candy bar
    (I adapted most of these from SkipToMyLou's Original Ideas)

Ideas for Your Candy-Grams
Adapt for the working spouse, student, SAHD (stay-at-home-dad), or for any holiday.

No Occasion:

"To my BIG HUNK, Just be TWIX you and me, You are my SUGAR BABY (or DADDY), and worth more to me than $100 GRAND. You're always an ALMOND JOY to be around, and a LIFESAVER when it comes to making my life complete. Our GOOD & PLENTY life together is like shopping on 5TH AVE on PAY DAY, and there are more stars in my eyes for you than the MILKY WAY. In my book, you're some HOT TAMALES and I have MOUNDS of HUGS & KISSES for you. You're the best, BAR NONE!" CREDIT: Sugardoodle.net

Anniversary:

"Happy Anniversary, SWEETTART! Seven years gone by, and you are still my RIESEN for living. I really SKOR-ed by marrying you! We’ve traveled some ROCKY ROADs, but I wouldn’t trade our life together for 100 GRAND. I’m still RED HOT for you! We’ve shared GOOD AND PLENTY of SNICKERS…and those are times that I will TREASURE forever. I love that I can still ROLO-ver next to you each morning and see my SUGAR DADDY. HUGS & KISSES, Your SUGAR BABY"

Valentine's Day:

My Dearest SUGAR DADDY, I hope this brings you a SNICKER as you read my message. It will not make you CHUNKY and I am not playing TWIX on you. You are my BIT-O-HONEY, BAR NONE. I am NUTRAGEOUS about you. You are always there for me in a CRUNCH. We have a GOOD-N-PLENTY life together, and I love you from here to MARS. You will always be my BIG HUNK. I wish you MOUNDS of ALMOND JOY on this Valentines...and a little RED HOT love. HUGS and KISSES, NOW and LATER, {Your Name}

Apology:

Dear, _____: Sometimes mistakes are small like CHOCOLATE COVERED RAISINS other times they seem to be as big as a MOUNTAIN (bar). I took a CHANCE and made you unhappy with me. I never MINT too! I PROMISE (dove) I won't make such a NUTRAGEOUS goof again! You are very special to me and I go to PIECES (reeses), when I know you are unhappy! I could just crawl back into a TURTLE 's shell, and pretend it doesn't matter, but it does! I have MOUNDS of affection for you, and this was nothing to SNICKER about. I could LOOK all the way from the MILKY WAY to 5TH AVENUE and not find a more wonderful person than you! Please accept my apologies and show me one of those CAREFREE (gum) smiles! Love, _____.
