I recently discovered Retro Sweets and I fell in love. The online store is full of the perfect sweet gifts from my childhood. Sweets that I had completely forgotten about and couldn’t wait to try. They are 80’s sweet oriented. We were sent an advent calendar and an amazing sweetie hamper to try and they really are great for gifts this Christmas. 

Advent calendar

I appreciate it’s a little late in the day, but I thought this personalised advent calendar would be a perfect gift for Christmas. Who says you have to have one sweet per day – if you are anything like me you want to eat them all at the same time! You could always order your calendar now and get it just in time to catch up with a few days worth of sweets! The personalisation is free too, so it really does make for a lovely gift. At £9.99 it is a great price. 

Inside the calendar you will find: the ultimate non-chocolate advent calendar. Behind each door of this sweet advent calendar is a popular retro sweet including: Love Hearts, lollies, bubble gum and more, so make the run up to Christmas this year super sweet with the help of this retro sweet advent calendar! 

Sweet hamper 

This Christmas hamper is the ultimate gift for the sweet-toothed. The hamper has some fabulous treats inside from Christmas themed to complete classics. You get 20 different types of sweets. Not only do you get the delicious treats, but you get a personalised wrapper on the hamper and of course the luxurious wicker hamper basket. It’s the perfect present for £39.99 – I like it for an Aunty/Uncle or grandparents kind of present. 

Inside the hamper there is a collection of: Dib Dabs, Love Hearts, Flying Saucers, Reindeer chews, Candy canes, Snowmen Jellies, Lollies, Fizz Wizz and bon bons. There is an element of surprise when you get your hamper, so I don’t want to spoil that for you! You will have to order your very own.
