We all have that person in our lives who adores all things sweet. Who thinks a meal isn’t complete without dessert and is always on the lookout for a new and exciting tasty treats to eat. It can be challenging to find new and interesting gifts for a sweet tooth. Each birthday, Christmas or anniversary, they are invariably inundated with the classic box of chocolates or artisan sweets.

Classic Cocktail Sets
Why not combine a love of sweet things with the fun of mixing and creating your own drinks? There are many different cocktail kits out there, so you could consider ones that help the giftee recreate all their favourite beverages from home. If they aren’t a big drinker, you can also get mocktail kits.
You could also combine this gift with a course in mixology. Now that the coronavirus restrictions are slowly lifting consider getting in touch with some local cocktail bars to see if they offer classes or sign them up for an online course.
Soothing Artisanal Tea Bags
An ideal gift for both tea drinkers and sweet tooths, artisanal tea bags are a perfect and unique gift. Select herbal or fruity teas to give your giftee that sweet hit they crave and consider tea sellers that can create a bespoke blend just for them.
Decadent Vegan Brownies
If you have a vegan sweet tooth to buy for, you can’t go wrong with vegan brownies. Vegan baked goods have come a long way over the last few years and now can easily rival their dairy counterparts.
Do some research into local vegan bakeries to find the best vegan brownies. This may require a taste test – just to be sure you’ve found the best option! Choosing vegan bakeries is a great way to promote sustainable living and support local businesses.

If you’re gifting to someone who is always in the kitchen baking up a storm, then you could consider a bespoke gift like an apron. You could choose a baking pun for those friends with a silly sense of humour, cupcake patterns or a practical apron with pockets for utensils and other baking supplies.
Sumptuous Sweetie Hampers
Forgo the overdone box of chocolates in favour of a unique and unusual sweet hamper. This is ideal for anyone who loves going to the local sweetshop or visiting the pick’n’mix at local shops. Their inner child will adore this gift!

Tasty Personalised Chocolates
Put a unique spin on the classic gift of chocolates by getting them personalised. There are services online and in chocolatier shops that allow you to print pictures onto the chocolate. You could get a bar or a box of individual chocolates. You can also get their name written in chocolate to complete this truly personalised gift.

Give the gift of inspiration with a cookbook chock full of delicious recipes. You could consider buying a recipe book on cakes and baked treats, sweets or something more specialised like a vegan or diet-specific cookbook.
