If you’re on the hunt for nursery leaving present ideas you’ve come to the right place.
We were recently asked to review a Sweet Hamper Company sweet hamper and it turns out a sweet hamper is the perfect gift if you’ve got a little one leaving nursery like me!
Finding an appropriate gift to say thank you if you’ve got a school or nursery leaver can be really hard, especially because the chances are more than one person has looked after them during their time there.
As well as a key person and the nursery staff who looked after Marigold during the day there’s the cook, the cleaners, the wonderful people who come in and do activities with her and the people in the office managing the accounts too.
As a first time mum I quickly discovered that hampers are a great solution to the what-to-buy conundrum because the contents can be shared among everyone and it saves you buying (and wrapping!) individual gifts for all the people you’d like to thank.
Over the years we’ve made our own hampers and bought them too, so when the Sweet Hamper Company got in touch and asked us to review their offering it was perfect timing to coincide with baby number three Marigold May leaving nursery after four happy years.
Saying goodbye to nursery with the Sweet Hamper Company
If you haven’t come across the Sweet Hamper Company before they make sweet hampers, boxes, cones and bouquets featuring everything from vintage and retro sweets to American candy and chocolate bouquets.
Each hamper is hand packed by their team of ‘candy connoisseurs’ and all the hampers can be personalised with a gift note of your choice.
We were sent a large sweet hamper (rrp £29.50) which featured a selection of pick ‘n’ mix sweets in traditional red and white striped paper bags, a range of Barratt sweets including a Sherbet Dip Dab, a Sherbet Fountain and a tube of Fruit Salad, and Swizzels sweets including Refreshers and Rainbow Drops.
The sweets came beautifully packed and wrapped in a wicker basket and yellow tissue paper with our thank you message for nursery printed on the top, and it’s fair to say we had to muster quite a lot of self-restraint not to dip in and steal a few sweets for ourselves!
An added bonus in the post-Covid world we’re now living in is that all the sweets are individually wrapped in their own packaging, so they’re perfect for sharing and you don’t have to worry about germs (or viruses!)
Marigold was rather pleased with herself when we made our special delivery and handed over the hamper to everyone who has looked after her at nursery over the years, and needless to say the staff at her nursery were rather pleased to receive it too!
If you’re looking for nursery or school leaving present ideas and have more than one person to thank I think a sweet hamper is an ideal solution, and we were impressed with what the Sweet Hamper Company has to offer. They’d also make great birthday, Christmas and ‘just because’ presents too, and I love the fact the vintage and retro ranges date as far back at the 1960s!
Do you have any recommendations for great nursery and teacher presents? I’d love to know what they are!
