Chocolates, sweets and flowers have the ability to grant the recipient joy in an informal fashion without the sender having to explain, and without the recipient feeling the need to return the favor. Be it the neighbor, love of your life or your mother in law.
Something sweet for the neighbor – Luckily most individuals live next door to decent people that don’t mind watering their plants, emptying their post box and putting their bikes in and out of their garage when traveling to trick thieves into thinking the family is home. Good neighbors can’t be bought, but they do deserve a nice gift, as a thank you for all their help.
Something sweet for the man in your life – Real men have an eye for quality and often indulge in dark chocolate. Therefore the man in your life will love you (even more) after you give him a few pieces of masculine, dark quality chocolate.
Something sweet for the women in your life – Women love gifts. A large amount of gifts in fact! The woman in your life loves the fact that you have been thinking of her, when you have been away travelling.
Something sweet for the kids – Children are born with an extra sweet tooth. Where exactly this tooth is located remains a mystery to modern science – but what’s certain, is that sweets can be used both as a reward and a bribe, even though of course this is against all parental principals!
Something sweet for the mother in law – Your mother in law is the most helpful women in the world. She is always ready with good food and a helping hand, when the dog or kids need looking after. Your mother in law is always practical and would appreciate delicious crispy biscuits in a fancy tin with artwork on that she can save and reuse for homemade baked goods.
Something strong for the father in law – Your father in law is probably into strong stuff, when fishing or cycling with his friends is on the menu. At the same time, he is often the helpful handyman that happily drops by with his bulging toolbox, and gives good advice on everything from algae on the roof to how you light a furnace.
