Make New Friends

7997721028_258f3e8815_o

If you have email, you’ve been sent something about Friendship Day at some point. It’s usually a cute message that we read (or not) then delete knowing it was created to have us send more email!

Truth is, there IS actually a Friendship Day – in fact there are two! Back in 1919 Hallmark establish National Friendship Day as the first Sunday in August. It died off over the years, but was resurrected in 1998 when the U.N. designated Winnie the Pooh as the World’s Ambassador of Friendship and set International Friendship Day as July 30.

So, celebrate your friends and friendships by sharing some cookies internationally on July 30 or nationally on August 7 this year. We’ll package them up into a sharable box or individually wrap them for single giveaways. No matter how you celebrate, it’s a great time to be thankful for friends.

Guys Like Cookies too!

June gets credit for being kibaseballnd of a “guy’s” month but that’s no reason to skip the deliciousness of cookies! We happen to know a number of dads, grads, sports lovers, weekend warriors, June grooms and others who love sugar cookies.

Celebrate something obvious like Father’s Day or make a big deal out of the team mates who volunteered their time to ump the extra games.

June is ideal for the light simplicity of a cookie that you can have decorated any way you like and packaged for individual giving or beautifully boxed up to share with the group. Let us make something into a wonderful event by contacting us at concierge@sugarvancouver.com or you can shop online at sugarvancouver.com

May Ray Day

sunny cookies

We’re in love with a new national holiday. May 19th is national May Ray Day.

It’s a day devoted to going out and getting some of those fabulous sun rays we’re starting to enjoy more and more of. Okay sure, it may not quite be swim suit weather, but it’s still the ideal time to take a walk in a park, play a game of ball or simply find a quiet patch of grass to lie down on and read a book.

Don’t confine your celebration of the sun to May 19th – consider it the “kick off” of enjoying the sun and if you want to share that celebration we can help out with some sunny cookies. Simply pop us a note at concierge@sugarvancouver.com

The Luck of the Irish

St. Patrick’s Day party or not – March 17 marks the perfect time to celebrate. It’s not a “real” holiday here in North America, but it does fall just when spring is starting to make itself seen and we’re all in need of a pick-me-up after the winter.

Surprise your friends with St. Patrick’s Day cookies custom-made by Sugar. We can individually wrap them for you to give away one at a time, or we’ll arrange them loose in a box for you to share with the gang at the office, a meeting after work, or even the local pub’s celebration.

Give us a shout at concierge@sugarvancouver.com to discuss your needs for green and gold and we’ll take care of the rest. May the luck of the Irish be with you!

St Patty's Day Cookies

St Patty’s Day Cookies

Forget about LOVE, celebrate a grouch!

sunny cookiesYou expected us to bring up all the opportunities for tasty cookies at Valentines Day didn’t you? But we decided to take a different approach. You already know all about that Feb. 14 holiday, so what about a couple of lesser-known and lesser-celebrated events that fall in the same month?

One of my favourites is Do a Grouch a Favour Day on February 16. No one knows who started this informal holiday, but let’s face it, we all know a grouch in our life who could use some brightening up! Maybe it’s the weather that’s got them down, or maybe they’re just a jerk, so surprise them and make them a little less grouchy with fun, happy cookies.

If lightening up a grouch’s day doesn’t appeal to you, go with February 20th’s National Love Your Pet Day. You can spoil your pets with their favourite treats while you dine on yours.

Bring some extra light and love into your February by contacting us at concierge@sugarvancouver.com.

Nothing Beats Milk and Cookies

milk and cookies dayUnfortunately the post-holiday season blues are a real thing. The weather is dark and dreary, the tree and decorations have come down and it’s one heck of a long time until spring arrives. Especially at the office, this can have a serious impact on productivity.

Everyone just feels blah for a week or two.

Bring some excitement to your workplace for no reason – or for a very good reason! January 11 is national milk day (the first day milk was delivered in bottles in 1878) and what could be more comforting than milk and cookies? Your co-workers won’t expect the special surprise and if you need a hand with getting the cookies made, just let us know at concierge@sugarvancouver.com. We specialize in custom cookies and can put your company logo on them, or perhaps you’d prefer sunshines or smiley faces for the promise of brighter days ahead.

Bring some fun to the office to fight the post-holiday blahs with an unexpected celebration of national milk day with milk and cookies.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…

 

No, it’s not looking like Chrisclientcookieboxtmas, but some of us are thinking about it – especially those who are in the market for great, creative client gifts.

Let’s face it, when we’re rushed and can’t find the ideal gift, we tend to default to a box of chocolates or a pre-made gift basket that may or may not include food someone likes. It all ends up looking like every other gift that was dropped off and your best intentions might soon be forgotten as soon as the best flavours are picked through.

Be the gift-giver everyone talks about this year. Give beautifully boxed, custom made sugar cookies. We can create cookies with their logo, your logo or both! Compliment logos with snowflakes and snowmen for those clients who don’t celebrate Christmas, or add Santas and angels for those who do.

With custom colours and icing you’ll have a memorable and delicious gift ready for giving, plus lead time for Sugar cookies is much shorter than the knick-knacks you sourced from the promotional catalogues.

Visit our website, contact our cookie concierge (concierge@sugarvancouver.com) or call us at 604 366 0695 to discuss your Christmas and holiday gift-giving needs.
