Christmas is a time for giving and spending time with your loved ones. While many people struggle with finding the perfect gifts, sweets are enduringly popular. If you have a confectionary store, choosing pre-packed sweets for Christmas gifts can be challenging, but there are so many fantastic options out there. 

In this post, we’re going to talk about which pre-packed sweets make the best gifts for the season of giving and sharing. 

Fun Sweets

When it comes to fun sweets, there are so many options. It’s essential to think about your customer base, and what kinds of treats will be most popular. Here are the top choices for sweets that embody festive fun.


Haribo is one of the worlds best known sweet brands, and their selections are loved by both children and adults. The brand is available in over 100 countries, and it’s a fantastic choice for gift giving. 

With so many flavours of Haribo, it’s hard to pick the most popular mixes. But here are the fan favourites that are sure to please anyone. 


Haribo Tangfastics are fizzy jelly sweets that come in a range of flavours. They’re extremely popular with teenagers, but small children might find them a bit intense. The sour flavours and trademark Haribo shapes make the sweets ideal for a Christmas stocking. 


Starmix is Haribo’s most popular product of all time. Nobody can resist the mixture of jelly bears, cherries and foam sweets. When you think of the companies vast range of candies and mixes, Starmix is the go-to choice for children and adults alike. 


Supermix is perfect for younger children because the flavours aren’t too intense and the textures are more creamy. The sweets include sheep, jelly men, milk bottles and ice cream cones. 


Goldbears are another favourite and were Haribo’s flagship sweet until they introduced Starmix. Considering they’ve been around since 1922, it’s safe to say that Goldbears are always a welcome gift for adults and children. 

Maoam Blocks 

Maoam is a chewy sweet with plenty of flavours. Each block is individually packed, and the flavours include Orange, Cherry and Raspberry. Maoam is popular with children and adults, and buying a box means you can let people mix and match their favourite flavours. 

If you’re looking for a safe option, then Haribo tubs are a real crowd-pleaser. The sheer range of flavours means there’s something for everyone. 

Jelly Beans 

Jelly Beans are perfect for spreading some Christmas joy, and they make great stocking fillers. Two of the best brands are Jelly Belly and The Jelly Bean Factory. 

Jelly Bean Factory 

The Jelly Bean Factory stocks a wide range of flavours, and their gourmet range is ideal for older teenagers and adults. Who doesn’t love a jar of jelly beans? 

Jelly Belly 

Jelly Belly are best for families because their range of flavours caters for young children and adults. Their cocktail range features flavours such as Pina Colada and Mojito, and their classic collection is geared towards younger people. 

One of the most popular products from Jelly Belly is the Beanboozled game. Players have to risk their taste buds to win because there is a range of flavours and some aren’t very nice! Beanboozled is perfect for families that want a fun-filled Christmas. 


Nerds are a fantastic option for your store because kids love them and adults remember them as part of their childhoods. The frosty collection includes three of the most popular flavours; cherry, punch and watermelon.

Traditional Sweets

While young people are the biggest candy consumers, traditional sweets are excellent options for people that are buying gifts for friends, colleagues or extended family. There are plenty of brands to consider, but Christmas sweets should be extra special. Here are some options for your store. 

Fruit Jewels 

Fruit Jewels are the go-to Christmas sweet for adults, and they’re ideal as a small gift. The sugar-covered jewels centre around the most popular fruit flavours, including pineapple, lime, orange and raspberry. 


Toffee is ideal for Christmas because it has a creamy texture and there are so many varieties available. From treacle toffee to chocolate-covered treats, wholesalers stock a range of chewy treats. 

One of our favourite options is the toffee brazil nut slab. The gift comes with a hammer, which makes it ideal for families to share in front of the TV. 

Liquorice Toffee

Black liquorice is a favourite among adults, and when combined with toffee, it makes the perfect treat. 


Nobody wants a Christmas without chocolate. It’s the time to indulge in your favourite treats, and if you choose the right range of chocolates, you’ll make a lot of sales in the lead up to the big day. 

Kids Chocolate 

Chocolate gifts for kids usually centre around a specific topic. There are many options available, but if you’re on a budget, then choosing themes that most people enjoy can save your money and help you create more sales. Popular themes include farmyard animals, football, and superhero gift sets. 

Adults Chocolate 

Adults like to indulge at Christmas because it’s the one time they can forget their diet! While traditional boxes of chocolate are enduringly popular, you should try to incorporate luxury options into your supply chain to create some festive spirit.


Reeses are the King of peanut butter treats, and there’s something irresistible about their range of chocolate treats. Gift boxes during Christmas are popular, and both adults and children love the buttery nut treats. 

Chocolate Creams 

Adults, especially older people, love chocolate creams. There are so many options to choose from, including mint, black cherry, coffee and orange and lemon. More exotic flavours include rose, violet and liquor creams. 


When it comes to stocking your store, there are plenty of delicious wholesale Christmas sweets available. Think about which sweets your customers usually purchase and try to find options that you know will be popular. 

Christmas is a fantastic time for making sales, and taking the time to plan your stock means that both you and your customers can have a very merry time.
