3 Things to Consider Including on Your Graduation Favors

If you are graduating from high school or college, you may want to consider purchasing graduation favors as part of the celebration. They can be given out at the graduation party, given as a thank you to those who came to the ceremony, or simply given to those who supported you as you worked to get your degree. One great graduation favor your friends and family are sure to appreciate is a graduation candy bar. To make your graduation candy bars special for you as well those receiving them, consider including the following three things:
Your Thank You
Use this an opportunity to thank those who helped you along the path to graduation. This can be especially meaningful if the people you are thanking do not know you are going to include a personalized thank you. As a recent high school graduate, this a great opportunity to thank your parents or others who helped you with homework. As a college grad, it is a wonderful chance to thank your spouse, who put up with your long hours of studying and the nights you were at the library until nearly midnight.
Your Photo
Some people like to include a picture of themselves dressed-up and ready for graduation. Others find it fun to include a baby picture along with a recent photo on their candy wrapper. If you returned to college after taking several years off, you may also want to include both a picture of yourself when you were originally in college as well as a more-recent picture..
Future Plans
If you have kept your post-graduation plans a secret from many of your family and friends, now is the chance to let people know what you are doing. High school students can include information about where they are going to college or work opportunities. College graduates can include information about where they will be working. Even if your friends and family already know your post-graduation plans, including them on your candy wrappers can be a fun touch.
If you want unique graduation favors to present to those who have supported you along the way, contact us.

How to Reward Your Students With Custom Candy Wrappers

If you're a teacher and you want to get your young students on their best behavior, then doling out candy rewards is a great way to do it. However, you can make it even more exciting and effective by using customized and personalized candy and chocolate bar wrappers. Here are some ideas.
Behavior Rewards
You can order a whole stack of candies, with the individual names of your students on personalized candy wrappers. Stock up on enough candy wrappers for each student. When a student is on their best behavior for a week or another set period of time, reward them with a candy that has a personalized "Good Job!" message -- with their name -- on the wrapper.
Homework Rewards
Order another set of candies that has a general message complimenting students for doing their homework. Create a "store" where each candy costs a certain amount of a custom "currency" you create. Every time a student does their homework, give them a preset amount of this "currency," and when they have enough "money," they can buy a candy from your store.
Test Rewards
Create a similar system to reward students when they get good marks on their tests. You can order candies with messages complimenting students on their good marks and for studying well, and then offer them to students who achieve good scores.

These are just some ideas! As a teacher, you should be creative and come up with many great ideas to reward your students. For all sorts of customized candy and chocolate bar wrappers, just contact us. #sweetwrappings

Bridal Shower Favors for the Out of Town Maid of Honor

You just found out that your best friend from high school is getting married. In two months. And you're the Maid of Honor.
This puts you in charge of planning a bridal shower. And since the bride lives in a different time zone than you, you're planning a party to take place in a city different from your own. Yikes.
But before you panic, Sweet Wrappings can help make checking a couple of items off your to-do list a little easier.
First, bridal shower favors. Design a custom wrapper with a photo of the couple with the wedding date, a photo of your close group of friends with your favorite quotation, or a photo of the bride with sweet sentiments collected from some of her friends. Whatever design you choose, getting them to the event location will be easy. Ship them ahead to someone who lives near the bride so that they're ready and waiting for you when you arrive or since they are compact, simply pack them up and they're ready to travel with you.
Second, is an idea to mix things up! Feeling overwhelmed by needing to design, print, trim, fold and mail invitations to the bride's guests? Let the custom wrapper be your invitation! They are easy to design from the comfort of your own home and then the bride's friends will not only receive a warm invitation, but they'll have a sweet treat to enjoy whether they're able to attend the shower or not!
Hopefully these ideas help make planning a bridal shower a little less stressful, no matter how far away you may live from your best friend and bride-to-be.
Contact us today so we can help you make it an event she'll never forget!

Use a Custom Candy Wrapper for a Unique Gender Reveal for Out-of-Town Family and Friends

Custom Candy Wrapper There's so much excitement with the promise of a new baby, and it's fun to involve family and friends in all the months leading up to the big day. Back in the day, parents didn't find out the gender of the baby, leaving it as a surprise for the day the child was born. Over time, parents decided it was better to know ahead of time, in order to be better prepared with gender-specific clothing and nurseries, but that did take some of the fun out of it. Gender reveal parties solved that, with parents able to find out whether they are having a boy or girl in a fun and unique fashion. Unfortunately, family and friends who live out-of-town often miss out on the fun, but you can still let them be involved by using a custom candy wrapper.
In a gender reveal party, parents and friends gather and find out together whether the baby is a boy or girl. Sometimes they find out by cutting into a cake, discovering whether the filling is blue or pink, and other times a bunch of balloons are released in the appropriate color. The same fun moment can be celebrated with loved ones who don't live close by. Simply design your own custom pink or blue candy wrapper, and mail them the sweet announcement. You could do one standard-sized bar, or a bunch of miniature candy bars to stick with the baby theme. And then, with the use of video chatting, you can watch parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and friends open the package and see the reaction and share the moment together.
Custom candy wrappers can be created using different colors, sayings, and even pictures. Family members will love the sweet treat and the sweet announcement to go with it. To find out more about creating your own gender reveal candy bar, contact us. #sweetwrappings.
