Sweet-tistics 101

(where math and candy collide)


Some businesses love to dig deep into the numbers.  We love it too.  (Candy numbers…that is.) And with 3 years of experience behind us, we feel confident about reporting results that many people might find a bit surprising (...or at least mouth watering.) 

Since the receiver is choosing their favorites—our insider information is coming directly from proverbial "horses mouth”. And we can tell you one thing for sure…...the horse has got a major sweet tooth! :)  

We looked closely at data collected from a random sample of our orders from Q1 (January- March), allowing for certain essential variants and variables (kinda :)).  We wanted to provide the purest--and the sweetest, results possible.  

And what did we find? (drumroll here……..)

Our most popular candy since the start of 2016? Swedish fish.  They take 1st prize by a very, (very) large margin.

When the swedish fish factor was taken out of the equation, we found that the current favorites are as follows:

Women's top pick?  Gummy peach rings.

Men’s favorite? Reeses pieces.

Kids choice? Number 1, top choice was rainbow belts.

(Hmmm.....Is it snack time, yet? :))

Sweet Appreciation

Wednesday, February 24, 2016 07:06:12 AM UTC

Sweet Appreciation.

A little goes a long way.

As it turns out, it doesn’t take all that much to keep employees in their “sweet spot”.  Glassdoor (an online career site) found that 80 % of employees are motivated to work harder when their boss shared a little sugar (a.k.a. showed appreciation for their work).  

In addition, bosses who express gratitude help keep workers from looking elsewhere for their kudos (and their paychecks). 

So what might do the trick...keeping an employee feeling satisfied, with their loyalty intact? A little goes a long way, as findings suggest that it doesn’t take all that much to go from “nah" to “yah".  In fact, 46 % of employees would feel more appreciated if their boss gave them an unexpected treat, including such things as a snack or a "thank you" note (pssst…. Sugarwish is both!).  Sweet! 

Random Act of Sweetness

Friday, February 12, 2016 11:13:39 AM UTC

Acts of Random Kindness  (Mmmm. Good.:))

 Random Act of Kindness: The power to warm a heart or lift a spirit with one thoughtful act...done in the name of “kindness”. 

It’s as profound as it is simple. 

The beauty comes from all that it is not. (Not expected. Not contrived. Not required.) And in this case…size doesn’t matter.:) 

The goodness is in the randomness, and any thoughtful gesture (of any size) counts.  

It doesn’t get much sweeter than that.

Sweet '16

Sunday, January 3, 2016 11:49:15 AM UTC

(Sugar)wishing you a Sweet 16! 

It may not be your original sweet 16 but hopefully this one comes without braces, cheesy DJs, and puffy pink dresses. Although, we wouldn't mind if Jake Ryan made an appearance:).

Hoping it is the best year yet. 



Secret Santa

Sunday, December 13, 2015 05:12:28 PM UTC

Shhhh. It’s a Secret (...Santa :))

Secret Santa (the tradition of giving a little gift to someone... and letting “the guy in the big red suit" take the credit) has become as much of a sign of the season as snowball fights and hot cocoa. 

So what’s all the hype? We think it has to do with the fact that receiving (or giving) a Secret Santa gift is one of the few ways that grown-ups are able to get in on the “magic” of the holidays too.  

Secret Santa’s have a way of making everyone feel included and invited to join in on the fun this time of year ( only something sent from the North Pole and wrapped by elves can do.) Makes us wanna send one right now.  


Corporate Gifts

The Next Generation of Corporate Gifts.

(How to bring a whole lot more to the table.)

A great gift can lead to new business, greater employee satisfaction, stronger relationships and more.  Gifting is no longer a once a year, holiday time acknowledgement.  Gifts can be used for anything from business branding and incentivizing employees, to building closer relationships with clients and partners.


Below are a few Corporate Gifting Guidelines to help you “bring more to the table”.


1) Your gift is a reflection of you.

Everyone wants to make a great first impression.  And we’ve found that packaging is as important, to most people, as what’s inside.  The initial impression will stay with them long after the gifts is gone, so be sure your gift is “dressed to impress”.


2) Timing is everything.  

If you are going to send a gesture of thanks, kudos or congratulations, it should be sent right away. Congratulations that comes a week or two after they got their big “win" will feel like an afterthought.  Gifts that can be sent instantly (when you realize that you need to acknowledge “that special person” --today!!), can make you look like you are totally on the ball—even when you‘re totally not.


3) Never underestimate the power of a good experience.

The more fun you can make the gift for the receiver, the more memorable, and appreciated, it will be.  The experience that the gift provides is as important as the gift (or, dare we say, even more important).    What is said about people-- can also be said for gifting. Be fun, and rest assured, you will be remembered. :)


4) Know your customer—or at least make them feel like you do.  

They key to a great gift is when your receiver thinks “Wow! She really knows me.”  If they think you know what they want, or more importantly, If they think you care what they want—it can make all the difference. The more you can customize a gift (or better yet, let them customize it so they get exactly what they like) the more of a perfect fit, and a better gift it will be.

It's Boo time!

Friday, October 9, 2015 04:23:46 AM UTC

It’s Boo time!                                                                                                                                                                              

Spreading Halloween cheer, one sweet surprise at a time. Who would have guessed that the spookiest holiday of the year would inspire so much sweetness? Boo-ing is a tradition of giving a “little something” (often anonymously) just to lift another’s “spirits”. It’s done everywhere, from small towns to big cities, and is the perfect way to stir up the excitement of the season. Boo-ing is gift giving at its finest---done with the sole purpose of spreading a little “happy” to someone else. And it’s contagious.  As soon as you’ve been Boo’d there is this “hot potato” like feeling that makes you want to Boo someone too. Boo given. Boo received. Boo given. Boo received. And so it goes. Ready? Set? Get them before they get you. :)  Send one now with our new Boo eCard!

Writing The Next Chapter

Monday, August 24, 2015 10:28:09 AM UTC

This time of year we see a ton of Sugarwish gifts being sent to new and returning college students. 

We love that we’re their first delivery of the school year….Off to college to begin a whole new chapter... authored by them. 

No more proofreading. They’ll be their own editor from this point on.

It’s the epitome of bittersweet. With more sweet than bitter,  it marks the end of so much...but the start of so much more. 

Here’s to their sweet future…. and the role they'll write in for you. (Hoping it’s a biggie. :))

Inspiring or Inspired?

Tuesday, August 4, 2015 06:12:38 AM UTC

Yesterday, we were asked to tell our startup story…to serve as an inspiration for some amazing campers/budding entrepreneurs. 

In turn, we met a group of 12-16 year olds from across the globe, who were able to gracefully articulate their plans to create something that might change the world.

By the end of the afternoon, Sugarwish Headquarters was buzzing with excitement… and fully charged by the energy that was oozing out of these amazing kids.  

We’re pretty sure that we got at least as much out of today’s visit as they did. (Maybe more! :))  

Sweet inspiration. delivered.
