The Sweetest Day is a day about being kind to those less fortunate, being sweet just to be sweet. The Sweetest Day is celebrated the 3rd Saturday of October, but do we really need a designated day to show some kindness?
At Allen’s Flowers and Plants, we hope that it isn’t the case. After all, we believe that, while a designated day of being sweet is just the right medicine for the world, all of us as a whole should at least try to make a difference and make a stranger smile today or tomorrow and perhaps everyday this year.
A Little Kindness Goes a Long Way
The Sweetest Day was started in the 1920s, and it was celebrated by the committee who started it that handed out thousands of candies and sweets to those less fortunate. Over the years, it has evolved some into a holiday about giving a little something to those you love in an effort to show them just how much they mean to you.
So, this sweetest day or any day really, a little something for someone special can really brighten their days. Because the truth is we never really know how a little kindness could affect someone we love or a stranger.
On this day, why not get a few little things for the ones you love? Remember that an honest gift expects nothing in return. The people you care for probably care for you too, but they may not know about the Sweetest Day. So what better a way to show them, than to get them a little something sweet?
Great gifts for Sweetest Day include:
- Candy, of course, as there are hundreds if not thousands of brands and pretty much everyone likes it. Be sure to check out some of our sweet gift baskets!
- Cards work because a card is thoughtful and allows you to add in a little something from the heart not to mention how creative you can get with some scotch tape a candy bar and the envelope.
- Flowers can make anyone smile. Now most everyone does love candy, but there are a few who don’t and others perhaps that you want to get something more special for and that is where the flowers come in. It could be a bouquet, a flower arrangement, or even a flowering plant.
This Sweetest Day, be sure to go out of your way to just be kind to others. Remember that for all your floral and gift giving needs, Allen’s Flowers and Plants carries only the highest quality flowers, plants, and gifts. Have a wonderful Sweetest Day from everyone at Allen’s Flowers and Plants.
