- Create Birthday Magic with Candy Bar Fun
Family. Friends. Food. Now that’s a recipe for a fantastic birthday party. But what if you added one more indispensable ingredient? Fun! Your parents told you not to play with your food, but we think a birthday party is the perfect time to start.
You don’t have to be young to enjoy a chance to mix and match your favorite candies and create your own delicious dessert. Here are some tips and birthday party ideas to help make your birthday candy bar the hit of the party.
Variety makes the birthday candy bar even sweeter.
The coolest birthday buffets have candy in a variety of exciting colours, shapes, sizes, and textures. Definitely start with the birthday girl’s or boy’s faves. Some popular choices include lollipops, gummy candy, gum balls, salt water taffy, malt balls, and hard fruit candy.
Create a theme your birthday hero will love.
Princesses? Pirates? Dinosaurs? An engaging theme can really enhance the appeal of the birthday candy bar. It also provides enchanting ways to create a fun experience. For example, a cowboy theme could include a covered wagon filled with goodies. You can create a castle centrepiece with a drawbridge lined with lollypops.
Containers can be as imaginative as the candy.
You can always use plastic bowls or colourful dishes to display the candy, but let your imagination make it special. Like using a child’s sand bucket or toy trucks to “deliver” the candy.
For older kids or the kid in us all, you could display candy in unique jars, vases, or wine glasses. Be sure to have tongs or spoons on hand to make collecting the candy easier.
Make B-days more memorable with personalised M&M’S®.
M&M’S® and birthdays are a perfect match. Pump up the birthday fun with personalised candy. Choose from 15 colours (like classic white and fuchsia) and personalise them with photos of the birthday boy or girl, add the names of party goers, or use classic birthday images.
Here’s another cool idea. Our Candy Push Dispenser with M&M'S® Candies. Our candy dispenser with personalised M&M’S® candies is the answer. Your boy or girl will love our Red Candy Push Dispenser. Personalise the candy with up to three colours and three designs.
Remember, buy M&M’S candies in bulk so you’ll always have plenty on hand; they make great goodie bags to go or an after-party treat for you.

- Original Ideas for Personalised Birthday Gifts
It happens to all of us. You suddenly realise a loved one has a birthday coming up. You scour the internet looking for the next best gift. Or you walk the shopping centre hoping to find a bit of inspiration in the shop window.
But there’s a surprisingly simple secret to making that special someone feel even more special on their birthday.
Personalized birthday gifts.
Think about what makes your spouse, son or daughter, siblings, parents, or your BFF unique. Maybe it’s a special nickname, a hobby, a favorite band or sports team – even funny selfies he or she has shared. Ordinary gifts fade, but one from the heart lasts.
Personalized gifts for her.
Whatever her age (not that she’ll tell you), show how much you appreciate her with a gift that’s heartwarmingly personal. Start by making a list of some of her favourite things – a colour she loves, that special photo of the two of you, or perhaps “sweet nothings” you’ve whispered in her ear.
Inspiration Tip: You can personalise M&M’S® with fun photos, her favorite sayings, birthday images, and fun colours. Personalised gifts for her are as limitless as your imagination.
Personalised gifts for him.
Maybe the man of your life is the practical type, but that doesn’t mean a personal touch won’t make him feel extra special. Think about what really matters to him – a favourite sports team, a hobby, funny (or romantic) photo, a car, or memories you’ve shared.
Inspiration Tip: Why not mix it up with personalised birthday candy? We make it so easy to create personalised M&M’S with all kinds of photos and sayings and maybe another gift with the logo and colors of his favorite football team. Personalised gifts for him will help make his big day even more special.
Personalised gifts for little ones.
Whether your little one isn’t a quite one, or is almost a teenager, there are lots of fun ways to make the birthday even sweeter. From superheroes to dinosaurs (and princesses, of course), you can create theme parties with personalised birthday gifts, party favours, and take-home party gifts.
Inspiration Tip: Personalised birthday candy is always a hit. Customise names or photos of our delicious M&M’S. Plus, you can create mini-take home gifts with each friend’s name on their M&M’S. Of course, the delicious chocolate inside is the real gift.
The fun doesn’t end when you start with personalised M&M’S.
