So, we were puttering around on the Internet this week looking for good Father’s Day candy ideas, and we ran across this really cool article. Apparently, a marketing company polled 1100 fathers about what kind of brands they’ve heard good things about. And you know what the number one answer was? M&M’s.
And that got us super excited, because it means that the best Father’s Day gifts don’t have to be really expensive – which is good, since the economy is tight. So then we started thinking of what kinds of Father’s Day candy gifts would be cool. (It’s not like you’re gonna give your dad a bag of M&M’s with a little sticky note that says, “Heard dads like candy. Here you go,” right?
Anyway, we came up with some pretty cool ideas, and we thought we’d share them with you:
- Scavenger hunt – ET style. Instead of Reece’s Pieces, you could use M&M’s to lead your dad around the house to his gift. (Which could be a pile of Snickers, since they came in at #3 on the survey.)
- Cake. If your dad has a sweet tooth, you could write “Happy Father’s Day” out in M&M’s on a cake to make his dessert a little more special.
- Gym bag. If your father has a gym membership, why not fill up a new gym bag with some individually wrapped bags of M&M’s? (This way he won’t feel guilty about eating them.) You could do the same thing with a bowling ball bag. If you buy candy online in bulk, you can save some serious dough.
- Big ole’ pile of candy. (This one might not be really original, but it’s still one of the best father’s Day gifts for candy lovers.)
Anyway, we just figured we’d share some ideas with you in case you’re still looking for a fun gift for Dad for his special day. And you really can’t go wrong with the # 1 choice of fathers everywhere, right?
How are YOU sweetening your Father’s Day this year?
Happy Father’s Day, everyone!
