Shop Local Gift Guide: For the Sweet Tooth

Sureena Johl

Why go to the big box stores when you can support local businesses and help stimulate the local economy? Just about all of us have that one person on our list who craves sweets. Not just your typical candy from the supermarket, but goodies and unique finds that they have yet to explore. Don’t worry, we’ve done the legwork, more like the fun work for you, and have found delicious treats that will make great gifts for the sweet tooth on your list.

Start with a treat for the morning: donuts! Not just regular donuts though, MINI ones! Danny’s Mini Donuts are made right before your eyes and prepared to your liking. They are warm, bite sized, and a great start to your holiday morning. Did I mention they are the perfect size to dunk in coffee?  You can even save time and order online. But I’d suggest just going in so you can watch the tasty creations be made.

Stop By Andy’s Candy for everything from a custom box of chocolates to nostalgic candies. Calling All Dreamers
If you want to get something that won’t have them bouncing off the walls from sugar, try Sacramento Sweets Co. in Old Sacramento. They have a sugar free section that you can choose from. Including chocolates, brittle, and cookies. They also have ice cream so you can treat yourself while you’re there.

Looking for the healthier route to satisfy the sweet tooth? Head to Edible Arrangements on 12th street and pick out a delicious edible bouquet just right for your person.  It’s all artfully arranged in a keepsake, ceramic sleigh container that can be reused year after year.
