Who Needs an Excuse for Something Sweet?
Sweet, we love getting a treat! Is your student heading off to school for the Fall semester, or are you celebrating a special occasion, or do they need a pick me up from time to time as they transition to virtual learning? What’s better than a sweet treat that you can have delivered directly to them to curb that sugar craving and leave them with a smile on their face?
Check out some of our favorite sweet dessert spots that you can surprise your student with throughout their semester away from home.

Is there a better way to celebrate your birthday, the end of an exam, or just making it through another week of quarantine? The answer is, OF COURSE NOT!

From their traditional fruit bouquets to their fruit platters, the best gifts are Edible.® They even have strawberries dipped in cake batter and rolled in mini sequin sprinkles, miniature cakes made with fresh pineapple and dipped in white chocolate or you can create your own box.
Another idea is to arrange for a personalized message from their favorite celebrity whether it is an actor, athlete, musician, reality tv star, or creator.
