Say it with sweets – a creative thank you gift idea

Everyone knows that candy makes things better. Here's a creative thank you gift idea for when you really want to show some gratitude!

I recently put together a custom thank you gift for a local design agency that we worked with, and it turned out so well, I had to share it!

I first started with an idea to frame my gift around: candy!

The agency’s brand color is orange, so I based my candy choices around that—you know, in case you couldn’t tell ;) Luckily, there’s a candy shop nearby that has all sorts of candy separated by color.

Everyone knows that candy makes things better. Here's a creative thank you gift idea for when you really want to show some gratitude!

Here’s a quick breakdown of what went into this gift:

  • Banner
    • small craft letters
    • baker’s twine
    • hot glue gun
    • skewers to tie banner up

First, I measured out and scored the edges of my pattern paper to completely wrap the board. (You can’t even tell it’s a wooden board under there, but I’m kind of a perfectionist so I had to make sure it was just right.) A glue stick worked fine for adhering the paper to the board, and I used foam tape to attach the “paint” cans to the board.

I used a hot glue gun to attach the letters for my banner, and strung it across two skewers, which I attached to the “end” cans with clear packing tape.

Once everything was assembled, it was time to put all the candy in! If you don’t have a local candy shop to purchase candy by color, you can always buy online (you can even search by color). I also found this video to show what different amounts of candy look like in 1 gallon containers.

It was a lot of fun to put together such a super-special, creative thank you gift, and I hope it inspires some creativity of your own! Have you created any totally unique custom gifts? Leave a comment, I would LOVE to hear about it!
