Let’s face it, we are all human, and that means that we can’t be expected to be perfect all the time. To never say the wrong thing at the wrong time or to upset someone else; messing up is part of being human. For as Alexander Pope said in “Essay on Criticism”: “to err is human”. Which is why the Suzi’s Sweet Shoppe crew will be celebrating Kiss and Make Up Day on August 25th, and in honor of this day we thought we’d give you some sweet ideas for an apology.
For the special lady/man in your life: Sending flowers is cliché, and jewelry is overdone. Cologne doesn’t really express your feelings, and there are only so many different power tools in the world. Sometimes apologizing to your SO is the hardest apology of all; what thing can really sum up “I’m sorry and I love you?”, and truly express how deeply you mean it? That is why you should think out of the box. Maybe make them a special dinner that you only cook once in a while, or take them to their favorite restaurant, or even do an activity you know they’ll enjoy, even if you aren’t in to it. Whatever you decide to do, you might even want to end the day or meal with a sweet treat, and there is nothing better than enjoying some chocolate covered strawberries with the one you love. They are romantic and subtle, perfect for apologizing to your SO.
For your parent/grandparent: Just because they are your parents, or grandparents, doesn’t mean you never fight, or have a reason to apologize, and sometimes words just aren’t enough. Sure cards are nice, but anyone can pick a card out at the store, and half of the time there is never a perfect card that really conveys your feelings. In this instance why not get them their favorite treat? It lets them know that you were thinking about them and do feel sorry for whatever you need to apologize for. And there are lots of great treats in the shop! Maybe your dad is really a fan of something sweet and salty, so why not pick him up some chocolate covered pretzels? Or maybe your mom really loves anything chocolate, so why not pick up some fudge for her to try? There are many ways to “kiss and make up”, but when you’re trying to apologize to a parent, a sweet treat might be just what you need to break the ice.
For your sibling: Siblings fight, no matter how old they are. It comes with the territory of being siblings, but as any brother or sister knows, that doesn’t mean you’re except from apologizing. If anything you want to “kiss and make up” with this person more than just about anyone else, because who else has been your partner in crime since birth? Siblings are a special case, and sometimes being the one to take the first step in “kissing and making up” is hard, which is why you should make a day of it. Take your sibling out on the town or out to lunch or just something fun that the both of you enjoy. Maybe go golfing or have a spa day, whatever it is you like to do together, do it! It will certainly help in the way of an apology, and you both get to have fun! And maybe you end the day munching on some chocolate covered Oreos or Mallow Mars, just to give you a sense of nostalgia.
We all have had to kiss and make up with someone before, and here at Suzi’s we got your back! With everything from chocolate covered strawberries to homemade fudge, we know the perfect way to say “I’m sorry”. So stop into the store for Kiss and Make Up Day on August 25th or order online, no worries, we’ll help you find the perfect way to kiss and make up.
