Honor Our Vets

 Honor Our VetsHonor Our Vets!

What does Veterans Day stand for? It’s a celebration to honor America’s veterans who have served in the Armed Forces for their patriotism, love of their country, and their willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. Veterans Day is also known as the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month aka Armistice Day. However in 1978, President Gerald R. Ford signed a new law returning this day back to Veterans Day because it carried significant historical and patriotic value to Americans and veterans that deserved to be recognized.

It’s time to stand up and thank those men and women, moms and dads, brothers and sisters who have sacrificed so much. Thank those that have served and continue to serve and protect our country. Show a little appreciation to those you know and make their Veterans Day a memorable one. Put a sweet smile on their faces by giving back. Make up a personalized gift, a candy basket, a care package or more.

Mother’s Day Celebration

Celebrate Mother's Day On the day you were born ever thought about going to your mother and staring her straight in the eyes with a big beautiful smile and saying, “Thank you mom, because if it wasn’t for you I would not be here right now!”

Happy Mother’s Day!

On May 8th, show mom how much you really appreciate her by showering her with love and affection. Show her that you really did notice the little things she did for you growing up as a child. So don’t forget to give mom a gift from the heart that she will remember for years to come. But best of all take the time and spend the day with her because that gift is priceless.

Are you drawing a blank on what to get the perfect mom on her special day? We here at Candy Concepts, Inc. have set forth a few small suggestions for you, so check us out!

Traditionally we get mom a card and send her flowers, and if we are lucky we get to take her out to dinner. Try some of our gourmet chocolates, candy coated pretzels, or foil wrapped chocolates. If mom is more of the outdoorsy, decorative type, we suggest you looking into our floral baskets, flower vases, and rustic candle holders. Our decorative lights, such as, submersible or fairy lights are also a wonderful idea too! Here’s an idea, get the gift baskets that you both can sit and decorate together, but before you give it to her, fill it with a few of these things mentioned above or with a few of her other favorite things.

Foil Wrapped ChocolatesChocolates – Mom’s love chocolate! Ever heard the old saying “April showers bring May flowers”? So shower her with five pounds of Chocolate Foil Pansies. They are solid milk chocolates wrapped in a beautifully colored flower foils of various colors. Add to a shallow basket, incorporate a small bow and now you have your own candy bouquet. Show a little love with the Heart shaped solid milk chocolates that come in various foil colors like bright pink, brown, leaf green, gold, light pink, purple, silver, blue and white.
