A Sugarwish

Just when you think all of the great ideas in the world have been taken, someone comes up with a new one.  

Unfortunately, it wasn't me.  

(But it was a friend of mine which is the next best thing.)

And when she posted about it on Facebook I thought to myself, "that's genius!"

And when something is genius, I like to share it with my friends and readers.  So I hopped onto `a casarella's Facebook page and gave her a little shout-out.  

What's the great idea?  

It's called a Sugarwish.  

What's a Sugarwish?  

Well, according to their website:

A Sugarwish starts as a sweet thought or "wish" (which is sent as an e-card).  The e-card guides your gift recipient to [the Sugarwish] website to select their favorite candies.  Their candy is then packaged in [a Sugarwish] signature box, tied with a ribbon, and shipped right to their door. 


Isn't that a great idea?  Don't you know someone who would love to get one of these?  I'm thinking it would make a wonderful teacher appreciation gift or a fun birthday present for a niece or nephew.


And I found out first-hand how wonderful a Sugarwish is when I was granted my own.  Picking the candies from the website is a blast.  I chose two for my daughters (gummy bears and candy "rocks") and two for me (caramels and taffy).



When my wish came (true), I was as impressed with the packaging and presentation as I was with the concept.  My candy came in a beautiful, sturdy box (which has already been reused for a Christmas gift ;) tied with a red ribbon.  I can honestly say I would be proud to give one of these as a gift.



So, if you're looking for a last minute Christmas gift for a teacher or that hard-to-shop-for friend, stop by the site and check it out.  The e-card can be delivered immediately and the candy could even reach them in time for Christmas if they use it promptly.

(This is the point where other, more fiscally savvy bloggers, would tell you that this post was paid for by Sugarwish, blah blah blah.  Except no one paid me.  My Sugarwish was sent as a friendly gesture with no strings attached.  I, in turn, decided to share it with the world because that's what I do here at `a casarella: I share awesome things with you.

You're welcome.)

  1. What I love most about you and your blog is that it is genuine. When you recommend that we check out another blog or a product, I've come to realize, it's because it's so good you feel you must share it. Sugarwish is AMAZING. It is destined to be the next successful business. From start to finish, from ordering to receiving your wish, everything is pure perfection and is guaranteed to make you smile. Thanks to you, I know this first hand. Thank you!
