About Sweet Gifts and Treats
Life has a funny way of presenting unexpected challenges and opportunities. After making the difficult decision to leave my 9 to 5 job as a chef to assist with family commitments, I found myself yearning for a creative outlet that would allow me to continue pursuing my passions. That's when I opened my 2 nd shop on Etsy, With a heart full of determination and a desire to spread joy through special celebrations, I embarked on a journey to establish my Etsy shop, Sweet Gifts and Treats. Initially, my focus was on crafting exquisite wedding and party favours that would add an extra touch of magic to every occasion. It brought me immense pleasure to be part of so many cherished moments and witness the joy these little tokens of appreciation brought to people.
However, as we all know, 2020 was a year unlike any other. The world came to a standstill, and celebrations took a backseat as we navigated through unprecedented times. It was during this period that I recognized the need for alternative ways to bring people closer, even when they were physically apart.
That's when the idea struck me - milkshake and hot chocolate, themed kits in gift boxes! These delightful little and delicious packages became my way of helping people bridge the distance and send warm wishes to their loved ones, especially during the moments when they couldn't be together physically. Whether it was a birthday, anniversary, or simply a way to say, "I miss you," these kits allowed people to express their sentiments in a tangible and comforting way. When life became a little more normal and weddings and parties where back people still loved the little kits and I moved them to an old shop I was not using Small Things by Amanda and added other kits like cupcake and cookie baking kits. Things that are great gifts and fun activities all in one. Then in mid 2023 I stared building a website with items from both Etsy shops
I believe that every gift is an opportunity to create lasting memories. That's why we carefully curate each gift box, ensuring that it's filled with the finest quality ingredients and irresistible treats. From gourmet hot chocolate blends to mouth-watering milkshake mixes, every item is thoughtfully selected to provide a unique and indulgent experience.
We take pride in our attention to detail. I try to tailor it to suit specific preferences or dietary needs where I can. like with a vegan-friendly hot chocolate set. I strive to accommodate diverse tastes and dietary restrictions.
When you choose to buy you not only support a small business but also become part of a community that values the beauty of togetherness. We understand the importance of celebrating life's special moments, no matter the circumstances. Through our gift boxes, we aim to bring smiles, warmth, and a sense of connection, even when physical distances separate us.
Running a small business single-handedly is a journey that holds its own unique challenges, and I navigate them despite the obstacle of being dyslexic. Dyslexia may affect my reading and writing abilities, but it never hampers my creativity or my dedication to crafting extraordinary culinary experiences for children. Every product is carefully curated, ensuring that each kit contains not only high-quality ingredients but also clear and concise instructions that are accessible to all.
Thank you for joining us on this incredible journey. We look forward to being a part of your celebrations and helping you create memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. Feel free to explore our shop and discover the perfect gift box that will bring joy and comfort to the people you hold dear.
With love and gratitude,
Founder, Small things by Amanda
