Forget the Flowers – Send Candy!

When loved ones are in the hospital, there are several different ways to let them know that you are thinking of them. Sending flowers is the most common go-to, with balloons coming in a close second. With an increasing number of hospitals banning these types of gifts, however, custom candy baskets have also become a popular choice for wishing friends and family well during their stay.

Candy Baskets Don’t Die

Although flowers are a beautiful sentiment, the truth is that they only last for a couple of days before they start to wither and die. One of the advantages of sending a candy basket is that it can last for much longer than flowers will, and it can be just as beautiful. With all the colorful candy wrappers, it’s easy to create an artistic arrangement that will pop and add color to the room. What’s more, the candy will last for as long as it takes someone to eat it!

There’s No Risk of Allergens

A common reason that hospitals are restricting flowers and balloons in rooms is because many people are allergic to pollen or latex. Pollen can be spread around easily by sticking to a healthcare worker’s clothes, potentially affecting those that don’t even have flowers in their room. Latex can trigger an allergic reaction and may cause someone to break out in hives and itch incessantly. By creating a custom candy basket, controlling exposure to any allergens is much easier.

You Can Create a Unique Gift

Another great reason to send a candy basket is that it’s unique. Because flowers and balloons have been such common gifts for so long, it can be a nice surprise to receive something so unexpected. There are several different sizes, arrangements, and candies to choose from, making the basket completely customizable.

With so many benefits to sending a candy basket, it’s easy to see why it’s become such a popular choice. Not only will a candy basket last longer than flowers but it can also be a fun and unique way to let someone know that you are thinking of them.
