If you’ve ever driven down Hillmorton Road, you’ll have seen the most amazing traditional sweet shop in Rugby, Sweet Retreat.

Quite frankly, it’s what dreams are made of, for both kids and their grown ups!

Think of it as a traditional sweet shop full of everything from jelly beans to cola bottles. Then add on novelty sweets and handmade chocolates, and you’re getting close.

It’s actually referred to as ‘the amazing sweet shop’ by both of my kids. I’d go even further to say, it’s the best one in the whole of Warwickshire.

A sweet shop in Rugby for any occasion

Sweet Retreat was set up by mum of two, Hannah in 2015. Since then the business has grown, and now offers confectionary of all kinds.

Whether it’s a pocket money treat, special occasion, or a celebration, this sweet shop in Rugby has something for everyone.

For gifting, you can’t go wrong with the luxury chocolates, or to build your own hamper. I love the fact that you can make your own up, depending on the tastes of the recipient. All too often, hampers either include foods that you don’t always want, or are really expensive.

The fact that you can make your own to suit whoever you’re sending it to is a great touch.

Hannah offers local drop off, click and collect, and in case you can’t get to the actual sweet shop in Rugby, you can opt for UK delivery too.

Sweet Retreat also offers traditional jars, and bags or cones of mixed sweets for all different budgets. There are even vegan options too.

The sweet cones are great as party bag favours, or thank you gifts for teachers or nursery workers. We’ve been gifted those many a time (and I’ve usually eaten them when the kids have gone to bed).

Sweet shop Christmas gifts for 2020

I’m always stumped for what to get my teenage nephews these days. They usually want money to put towards electronic devices, which isn’t quite the same as the days when they wanted a ‘thing’.

It’s nice to still be able to have a little something to hand over at Christmas though, and anything that’s full of sugar is always a winner.

So, in the spirit of shopping local, I’ll definitely be checking out Sweet Retreat’s range of gifts. They’ve always made the best presents when I’ve shopped with them before.
