Celebrating Sweetest Day In The Sweetest Way
What's the sweetest way to show appreciation for someone? With a Sweetest Day gift, of course! Mothers are celebrated with Mother's Day gifts but one day is hardly complete compensation for the many sleepless nights that go into caring for children and nurturing their dreams. Lovers are celebrated with Valentine's Day, but so much love is poured out throughout the year that one day is almost long forgotten as the later months of fall and winter come. To show true appreciation for the people that mean the most to you, simply share a "thank you" or "you matter to me." When a gift goes the extra mile toward a meaningful holiday celebration, many look to a local florist for a Sweetest Day sweet treat.
Stacey's Flowers and Gifts, a creative flower shop in Manistee, Michigan, is well known for their unique stock of sweet gifts and treats. The most popular items are the candy-filled mugs that everyone can enjoy. Children who may not want flowers love the sweet treats and balloons that can be easily attached to the handle. Men are often difficult to shop for when holidays arise, but a personalized gift is always a big win-especially when the gift comes with ounces of delectable goodies.
After birthdays, Valentines Day, Christmas and the many other gift-giving holidays, many wonder why another holiday should be thrown into the mix. The simplest answer is also the best:Â to carry on the noble tradition of letting the least of the least know that they are the most important to someone.
Sweetest Day is a burst of confidence and good will that began in 1922 with Herbert Birch Kingston, a candy company clerk in Cleveland. Kingston sought to show appreciation or the forgotten by delivering gifts of candy and good wishes to local orphanages, terminally ill, the disabled and others. The contagious feeling of doing a good deed quickly caught on and is now a popular holiday celebrated primarily in Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, and Wisconsin on the third Saturday of October each year. However, the holiday is now taking hold in other parts of the nation as locals to these Great Lakes regions relocate but continue to celebrate the tradition.

Regardless of location, it is always an appropriate time to show appreciation to someone for their contribution to the quality of our lives. Sometimes the smallest phrases have the biggest impact. "Thank you," "I love you," "You mean so much to me," and "I'm who I am today because you cared" have significant affects on a person. Even cooing "Sweets for my sweet" while presenting a gift basket full of goodies is enough to show someone that he or she has had a significant impact.
Sweetest Day is celebrated every third Saturday in October which falls on October 18th this year. A Sweetest Day gift may not seem like much, but for the people that mean the most to us, this is the least that we can do.
