Gifting someone you love with homemade candy or snacks? A great way to show them your love on sight is to use a special, meaningful candy dish. They know they’re loved already, but this says “I Love You” year after year. I’ve picked out six special occasion candy dishes that you may find just right for your home or for that special person. These shown here may just be perfect for someone you love. I have included links at the bottom of this page to my homemade candy recipes for Easy Rocky Road Candy, Homemade Peanut Brittle, Buttermilk Fudge, Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge, in case you want to put something homemade in your new gift candy dishes.

Heart shaped dishes are always a big hit. It shows immediately the love you feel toward the person you’re gifting. There’s no doubt that love will shine year after year as they put out a special heart shaped container filled with snacks for themselves or guests.

What about Valentine’s Day, birthday, or Mother’s Day gift? A heart shaped candy dish filled with their favorite snack is a perfect path to their heart.

Very decorative for your own use too, and makes a statement for your loved one’s enjoyment for birthday, for your significant other’s enjoyment.

During the holidays I like to have a filled candy dish in my home, ready for anyone who drops in. It’s also a nice spot for a little treat for myself, on heading out to shop,  or a sweet taste while I clean and decorate for the holidays.  This can also be a gift to hold your homemade candy (check out the recipe links at the end of this page.) Put the candy into a special occasion candy dish, cover with Press ‘n Seal and top with a festive bow. Or put the candy into a covered candy dish like this one below. It’s a special treat right away, plus a lasting reminder of your love and thoughtfulness throughout the year.
