For spouses

Use gummy candy letters to spell out a romantic message on a plate or tray.

Make or buy your “Sugar” a few kinds of candy they’ve never tried before, like Turkish delight, salted caramels, French creams or marzipan. In an anniversary card, write that every year together is a sweet new adventure.


Give a box of gourmet chocolates, and replace one of the chocolates with a surprise. It could be a tiny wrapped gift, like jewelry or a hundred-dollar bill folded up, with a note telling them to spend it at their favorite store.

For another couple

Give six different kinds of candy, one for each year…or six gourmet chocolate bars.
