Gifts for Candy Lovers

My mother gave me an excellent gift about a year ago. First, she knows my love of anodized aluminum (I should have a blog about that too!) and of course she knows of my love of organizing things:

I’m sure when she bought it she thought it was for eyeglasses or sunglasses. But it’s obvious to me that it’s intended for safely carrying your candy:


Yes, this durable metal case not only protects your precious candy bar (or two) from getting crushed at the bottom of your purse, backpack or messenger bag, it also provides welcome insulation against temperature variations.

You can also keep smaller wrapped candies in there, like a bunch of Kisses, Tootsie Rolls or hard candies. It’d even be good for lollies and Sugar Daddies.

Most glasses cases are great for this purpose and would be a welcome gift (filled of course) for any candy lover. Pencil cases also work equally well for this purpose.

Here are a few ideas:
Engraved Silver - $25.00
Sport Glasses Case - $7.99
Small Steel Case - $7.70 (flip top for ease of loading)

      I guess I know what to get you for christmas…and it won’t get crushed in your luggage either. What a thoughtful mother you have!

      Oh, this is such a useful little container. No more squished candies and the bottom of my purse. I wonder is a granola bar will fit ...

      I have no idea where my mother found it. I looked around on the web and only saw one similar in silver (monogrammed).

      I was able to actually put two Lara bars in there, but only one Luna bar. Fuggettabout putting Cliff bars in there, they’re too wide.

  2. This is an AWESOME idea!  I’m always worried about my candy getting smooshed and/or melty (I’m in Hawaii).  Thanks.
